I can thoroughly recommend Cancon. Asian DBA gamers especially, get down to Canberra for Cancon 2014. two days of gaming, maybe 12 games in total plus access to the likes of Eureka Miniatures (order ahead of time and Nic will bring to Cancon for collection – saves the postage).
Best of all, for the international traveller, bringing two 15mm DBA armies is a fairly straightforward process and a little forward planning means that they will travel well in the carry on baggage – although there will be “oohs” and “aahs” at the security checks 🙂
At Cancon for 2014 Greg Kelleher will be once again running the DBA competition. For 2014, DBA will be a 2 day tournament:
- The 1st day will be restricted to armies from Books 1 and 2,
- The 2nd day only armies from Books 3 and 4 will be eligible to be used.
With the current flux regarding rules, version 2.2 will be used. There will be a Books 1 and 2 champion, a Books 3 and 4 champion and an overall champion, as well as other prize categories.The dates for Cancon are Saturday 25th-Monday 27th January 2014. DBA will be played on 25 and 26 January. Playing on the Saturday and Sunday will allow those needing to travel an extra day to complete their trip before having to return to work/school.
More details regarding the competition can be found at http://www.cgs.asn.au/cancon/tournaments-2/. Registration can be made athttp://www.southernbattlegamers.org/cgssite/index.php?option=com_dtregister&Itemid=1.
Greg has requested space for up to 40 players. However, as there is a finite amount of space at the venue, places may be forfeited if other competitions fill their quotas. So the moral of the story is register early and Greg won’t have to turn away potential players, as he had to do for Cancon 2013.
I had a ball at Cancon 2013, not performing as well as I did in 2011 but had great fun never-the-less.
