game convention in taunton
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:19:24 PM »
I just came across a kickstarter for a new gaming convention being held this summer in Taunton.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/neprivateers/captaincon-2014?ref=home_location

Its being run by the guys that do the Warmahordes events at templecon.
Sounds like there will be a charge for the con ticket and thats it(any games or tournaments you play are covered by the con ticket)
You get points just for playing games. Those points can be turned in for prizes.
The game rooms will be open for 48 hours straight.

Absolutely.   There will be an equivalent to Iron Arena, Special scenario tables, as well as several other events.  I'll post more information as things develop.
