KnaveCon 2 - Post Mortem

Last weekend we held KnaveCon 2 in Limerick, which moved it from a gathering of mates to an actual event. There were trade stands, The Gathering, Wee Gamers and Boardgame Guys. There was a bring and buy, a huge array of superb donuts from Dungeons & Donuts and as much free coffee as you could fit in your gullet. We had three coffee machines running all day, and by days end there was a rut in the carpet between the coffee and donut stand. A magical synergy that bodes well for KnaveCon 3.

Oh yeah.
The hordes.
Oh yes, and as many board/card games as you could eat. I mean play.

Everyone looked like they were having a fine time, and there were a multitude of games available to play, as well as the teetering piles folks brought with them. From Warhammer Invasion to MTG, Spartacus (such a great game) to X-wing and Lords of Waterdeep, the only real problem on the day was how to get in everything one wanted to play. I brought some old school GW games, and managed to rope some folks into a game of Curse of the Mummy's Tomb which I'd recently nabbed off ebay for a song. Good fun, a nice starter game before heading into something more meaty, or in my case a four hour long epic game of Block Mania featuring five blocks. We actually managed to collapse a block during the game such was the firepower unleashed.

A game of Werewolf in progress.
The vibe was very relaxed, and we were very happy with the attendance. A big thanks to all who came along, and hopefully we can get even more folks to the next one!

    Have you seen this?


  2. Sounds like a good day out - I've often lingered over some of those old GW games on ebay. Curse of the Mummy looks like good fun.

    Strange how I always think of some clunky ZX Spectrum or C64 game when I hear Blok Mania.
