- Just rec'd my ConMan 8 flyer the other day, and I was wondering if
anyone is planning on attending. It's being held Aug 18, 19, and 20 in
Merrimack, NH (just over the border).
I see Craig listed as GM for a Rio Grande Games tournament so I
guess Craig will be there. Besides that, here is a list of some of the
events that might be of interest, Medici, Merchant of Venus, Robo Rally,
Settlers, Vino, plus my favorite, Open gaming.
So, besides Craig who's obviously going, is there anyone else with
an urge to attend?
- Greetings All!
Can you believe it? Is it possible that there wasn't even ONE Unity
Games email post on Saturday? (The END must be near!)
Carol and I enjoyed our short (5 hour!) stay at ConMan on Saturday.
We had hoped to arrive early to beat the crush at the registration
table, but at 5:00am I decided to let my wife sleep in a little
So we didn't arrive until 9:30. Unfortunately, the registration table
wasn't being overwhelmed by people rushing to play Rio Grande games
when we arrived. However, Craig was dutifully manning his post and
awaiting the first players.
I hope ConMan was a success for Craig, Unity Gamers and Rio Grande. I
think it was from what Carol and I were able to observe. We had to
leave at 2:30 but did manage to play three games (El Caballero,
Members Only and Torres). However, only Torres counted for points and
I could only manage a distant 2nd; Alison won handily!
Craig, I just want to say thanks for the effort you put forth. I wish
Carol and I could have stayed longer. I know we missed out on a lot
of gaming fun! I hope the people running ConMan (Totalcon) were
impressed by the turn out for the Rio Grande Tournament. I hope you
can do it again next year!

I'm still waking up, but will post a pic-tography of the day in
an hour or two. If anyone found a business card with some
writing on the back - let me know. One of the miniatures guys
gave it to me so I could send a picture to him of his set-up but
now I can't find it.
We picked up a few new players in the evening session from
Great event! Congratulations to Craig for doing a great job.
Also, big congratulations to Alison who won the event and Jenn
who was runner-up (both got Rio Grande Game prizes).

- It sounds like ConMan was great. I enjoyed reading the reports, looking at
the pics and vicariously experiencing the day. Congrats to Alison, Jenn and
Tamara on their respective win-filled days.
I'm sorry to have missed all the fun, but at least I managed a game-filled
weekend with my sister Karen, brother-in-law TIm and niece Amy. I got to
play several games for the first time: Njet!, a neat little trick-taking
game by Stefan Dorra (of Streetcar fame); Aquarius from Looney Labs; and Ra,
on loan from Walter (thanks, Walter!). We also pulled out Boggle (it's been
years!), Naval War and Twitch.
I didn't get ratings from the other players (sorry, Dave!), but if anyone
wants to hear more about any of these games, let me know and I'll post a
more complete report on CashmoreCon later today.
