For those of you who know me, I'm baaaack!
For those of you who don't know me, I'm a troll and I run games at
the con. Hence, "CON-Troll". Clever, yes?
Oh, all right. A few details then. Every year I run my "CON-Troll"
game library at local conventions. The premise is simple. I set out
a whole bunch of games (everything from Munchkin to Axis & Allies) on
tables so that folks can stop by and play something when they're
between other games, sessions, panels, whatever. Also, I try to run
something "unique" that you won't find elsewhere. Previous players
may remember "OGRE Macrotures" and "Capital Ship Combat" to name a
few. This year it's a "Hot Wheels Race Rally". A big dual-lane
track that includes a ramp drop, loop and jump on the way to a finish
flag. The cool thing is that YOU get to race against everyone else.
Even cooler, you can bring your own Hot Wheels cars (or Matchbox, or
Johnny Lightening, etc.) As long as it fits on the track (and isn't
a blatant attempt to cheat) you can race with it! There will be
prizes and maybe (I said "maybe") trophies awarded to the top racers!
Details are still being hammered out exactly where I will be this
year, but odds are good that it will be down in the main hall again
as in previous years. Watch the gaming page at the Megacon site for
an update listing where the Hot Wheels Rally and game library will be.
Be sure to stop in, play some games, or at least say "Hi"!
