This year marks Swancon's 40th - and Leece and I have been to over half of them!
This year, we are the Gaming Co-ordinators, and, as a result, will spend more time outside the gaming room than usual. Funny how that works out!
Here is what I am on for: Introduction to Modern Board games - what is all the fuss about? Saturday 10:00 until Saturday 11:00 (60 Minutes) UggTect Royale - The Second Clubbing Saturday 15:00 until Saturday 16:00 (60 Minutes) Old Games are New Again: The revival of classics in new ways Sunday 10:00 until Sunday 11:00 (60 Minutes) Tournament - Dixit Sunday 14:00 until Sunday 16:00 (120 Minutes) The Science of Board Game Design Sunday 16:00 until Sunday 17:00 (60 Minutes) This game is so good, I'm prepared to speak for 3 minutes in public on it. (1) Sunday 19:30 until Sunday 20:30 (60 Minutes) Australian Game Design and History Monday 15:00 until Monday 16:00 (60 Minutes)
Not to mention various teaching sessions in the gaming room itself.
I'll just take this chance to shout out a big thanks to our many helpers - Brian and Andy, Adrian, our WABA helpers and panelists, our GMs and panelists from Final Frontiers, and everyone who has chipped in time, suggestions, and help.
Here's hoping to see you there - and look out for your gaming bingo card in your con bags!
