Warcon happened in Warrensburg this weekend. I missed Friday, which was huge, and went on to 3 o'clock. I did make it with the kids Saturday and Sunday though. The convention, born out of protest from KC Gamefair vendor practices, generated an unprecedented 126 unique visitors. Phil Thompson's shop was the location, with areas for large scale miniature gaming, a LAN network with large plasma screens, and other tables for incidental gaming.
RPGA games were not in force here. Miniature games were however. Battletech, Warhammer, and more. I personally played Talisman, Munchkin, Bump in the Night, and Mwhahahaha! Further, he had his usually excellent paint-and-take. I painted a cool orc, a halfling wizard, and Phoebe painted a pink and copper knight (he's fabulous.)
The grab bags where the best I've ever seen. Three comics (I got The Gunslinger and a Fallen Son comic, awesome) pack of cards (Owen got those constructible Star Wars game cards) and a map (Flooded Ruins, I don't have that one.) Door prizes were also excellent, I got a donated Twilight Creations Gravediggers game www.twilightcreationsinc.com/ and Owen got a T-shirt.
A terrific event, everyone seemed very satisfied. A good time was had by all. Wizards should definitely think about donating their secondary, offshoot games to these events. I'm absolutely thinking about picking up Talisman now. It's a shame that no one is playing Innfighting, Three Dragon Ante, Great Dalmuti, or Guillotine and these sorts of events.
