I just posted this in another thread but wanted to make this it's own thread some people will see it.
This year for Charcon we are going to push/ask/beg GM's to run games in 2 hour blocks. The purpose of this is to allow people to see/play as many games as they can or want during the convention.
This is not to say that if a GM has a longer, more involved game that they cannot run it, we will not stop anyone from running a longer game.
The convention is still new to this area and a lot of people that don't get to attend Origins or Gencon haven't seen the plethora of games that may be out there.
So this year we are going to try and showcase as many games as we can by running a lot of games in 2 hour blocks to allow people to play a system and move on to other games.
We will still be having the tournaments will play all day and the Aerodrome people will probably be returning along with the Sailpower group.
So if you are interested and would like to run games, think about something you can put together and run in 2 hour blocks that will be fun and teach people the system and hopefully gain some new players for the system and your gaming group.
I am going to run:
Check Your 6 WW2 Air combat
Battlestar Galactica (2 different game types)
Lord of the Rings Amon Hen
Systems I would like to see. If you would like to run one of these but don't have the materials I have miniatures and terrain for most of these systems I would let someone use to run these games:
40k and fantasy skirmish (low point, small unit games)
Would LOVE to see a BIG scale Apocolypse game (I know that would take more than 4 hours but would be cool to see)
other LOTR games
Flames of War games (small scale)
Just some ideas if anyone has other feel free to post here.
