For a number of years there have been no real Brisbane based gaming conventions. This has changed finally with a resurrection of BrisCon.
The newly minted Brisbane Gaming Society is rebooting BrisCon on the May Day weekend THIS YEAR.
Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1 are the days. More details can be found at the BrisCon website above but the fantastic Brisbane Table Tennis Center at Downey Park in Windsor has been secured for the convention. The organisers hope to grow it to a full three day convention over the next couple of years.
The organisers have noted that it is essentially being funded by the small executive committee of the Brisbane Gaming Society so could do with all the help they can get make this happen.
Also required are:
- Games Managers
Current competitions being organised are”
- Queensland Team Yankee Championships along with a mid-war FOW comp
- Drop Zone Commander competition
The organisers are looking for Games Managers for games such as:
- 40k and/or WarMachine
- Kings of War
- Bolt Action.
It would be great for specific clubs to get behind these games, and specific retailers or distributors to sponsor each one. If you want to be a Games Manager for one of these systems, or any other, please let the organisers know (firstname.lastname@example.org). They are also looking for display and participation games. If you are a retailer then also drop them a line at email@example.com as they would love to have retailers involved.
The center has a good cafeteria, and more than enough room for their first attempt where they are aiming to fill 50 tables of gamers, plus some demo/participation games, a second hand stall and retailer booths.
Check out their website and if you are planning on being near Brisbane at the end of April, pack your dice and some figures.
