We have an official date for Basement Con (the convention in my basement). Friday evening August 27th and Saturday the 28th. Escape the heat of a Missouri summer by gaming in my cold, smelly basement.
Basement-Con is located conveniently smack dab in the middle of the US of A, in Independence, (home of Harry Truman) Missouri.
To commemorate this occasion, we're making a new Basement Generals T-shirt, and for the first time possibly making it available to the general public for those who cannot attend Basement-Con.
As the date approaches I will post more info on events, times, etc. See ya there!
Note on the design: This T-shirt commemorates a game that seemed to contain all the best of wargaming. At one point, I over heard a pre battle discussion as how to best deploy the troops. It went something "No, no. First the Zombies, then the robots, then the tanks." It became our unofficial motto. A featured game of Basement-Con will have all three.
Some people have asked where I'm located in the state. Tada!:
Great T-Shirt! (great motto too)
Best of luck with the con
There exists a real chance of my attendance.
Will need to check the map ... how many hours north of Arkansas will I have to drive?
Are there decent and inexpensive lodgings around?
We drive to Branson in roughly 3.5 hours, which is pretty close to the AK border. I'll post a map. Tons of lodging real close. If you think you'll make it, I'll send a list.
I live about 45 minutes south of West Plains ... it takes us about 3 1/2 hours to Springfield and a whole day to St. Louis.
I figure I'm able to drive about 4 hours if I get at least a day off my feet before I have to drive back home. Drive up early Friday, play Saturday, drive back afternoon Sunday could work if everything holds together.
I'd love to do some SYW gaming!!
If I get clearance from the doctor, I'd love a t-shirt ... got any 5x?
WalMart sells 4x which I use till they shrink too far
Unfortunately, I'm getting the shirts through cafepress.com. Great because you don't have minimum orders. Just get one at a time if you want. Bad news. Only go up to 3XL.
Ah well, the wife is still considering letting me attempt the trip. Now to get somebody to take care of the animals...
What rules do you all favor? My figures are set up for Koenig Krieg and Battle of the Ancien Regime ...
If we get a chance, we'll run a Unkerlant Civil War battle using Might and Reason. We can provide all the troops, no need to drag extra stuff along.
