Nothing except a battle lost can be half as melancholy as a battle won.
Two days of gaming at Wellycon 2015.
The weekend before last I flew over the Cook Strait and into the windy city of Wellington for a couple of days of solid gaming with some friends. I missed it last year so it was good to be back. A new venue was spacious (if a bit chilly) and attendance was good. Here’s a quick video overview of the gaming that was going on. This year I took quite a few games with me and managed to play most of them: Dead of Winter (twice), Spartacus, Robinson Crusoe, Blood Bowl: Team Manager, Omen: A Reign of War, Rise of Cthulhu among others.
Not only that, but I was lucky enough to win a copy of The X-Files completely out of the blue in a spot prize! Score! Thanks to Cerberus Games in Wellington who donated that prize. I also bought the Robinson Crusoe expansion Voyage of the Beagle and a couple of Star Wars: Armada squadron packs from the retail tables of Board Game Rentals.
Thanks to Minty and Sam, Greg, Eric, Todd, Peter and many others too numerous to mention for being so hospitable and such good company. And of course many thanks to the organisers of Wellycon, who work so hard to get a few hundred gamers together in a room for a couple of days once a year.
