One quiet weekend in April I invented a thing. My wife was away, I had a lot of solitaire games I wanted to play, so I held an invitation-only solitaire games convention. That idea seems to have struck a chord with some solitaire gamers, who might not invite you to their convention but they still want to talk to you... this geeklist is to collect the reports on the solitaire conventions.

Maybe one day you'll be invited to one.

UPDATE: There's now a geekbadge for solo con attendees! Wear it with pride!

In which Friendless plays a variety of soloable games, but not war games and not science fiction games.

FlabberCon is underway.

Dismal day outside but I'm home and warm in a house I cleaned yesterday and playing games in the first ever FlabberCon. The green felt is out on the table and my goal for the day is to play as many of my favorites as possible. Think that's a reasonable goal eh?

Thanks all to came before me!

May solo-cons be what brings us together!

Judecon 1 is starting at noon today and running until Monday Tuesday at dawn (or whenever I feel like stopping). Click the link for more info:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/167092/judecon-1-my-so...

----

Attention! JudeCon has been extended until Tuesday at dawn because I realized that Monday is a national holiday and the errands and phone calls I needed to do couldn't be done.

I'm not playing as many games each day as I had expected to. I get tired easily and my head and back starts to ache after a few hours. So, I'm not pushing it.

Starting with Mage Knight I am going to attempt to play as many games as possible whilst the three most important people in my life are away from the house.

I am tentatively aiming to play everything I own but we shall see.

I hope you join me 'in spirit' and see how well I do.

My first solo gaming convention. I still have 1 day left, and it is my day off with nothing planned, so I hope to get in some final games. I hope I can get a Mageknight or Defenders of the Realm play in there.

My solo con started Friday after work and has continued through the weekend. There have been a few welcome interruptions (Mysterium with friends and church today) so I decided to extend it until all of the games get played!

I am working on a new short review technique and I would love if people gave me feedback on what they like and don't like. Feel free to stop by and see what is happening!

Catching up on various duties for A Gaming Hobbit, thought I'd turn it into an extended Solo Con.

We have hot food options with convenient delivery to the gaming areas, a really long table with the leaves pulled out, a very comfortable Goblin King Chair area, a math trade with external non-convention goers, and a dealer "room" (thought it's just Cool Stuff Inc and Funagain Games, but their enticing websites function like a dealer room when my thoughts are on games games games).

Two months in China far from the family gives a lot of time to play boardgames. The only problem is how many boardgames could you bring with you to China.

I decided to bring with me 4 boardgames from the VPG State of Sieges family. And I' m going to play each one of them till I win.

Let me introduce you to each one of them..
