BiBaCon is a (very) small gaming convention organized by me and held roughly once a year in a holiday flat in Bad Birnbach, Lower Bavaria.

Mostly (but not exclusively) wargames are being played.

This is what we played this time.

This is the smallest (but by no means the least interesting) of the COIN series. We even played this twice because I stupidly brought an incomplete copy of Friedrich (a game we wanted to play as well).

I did pretty well as the 26 July faction (and won) but pretty badly as the government (and would probably have been last if we had managed to play to completion the second time).

Excellent game!

Im my opinion, even better than (but playing quite differently from) its predecessor Pax Porfiriana.

We had a very close game that Bernd won.

I hadn't played this for over thirty years and was really itching to do so again, particularly since I will play this at the upcoming HexaCon in Braunfels this year.

We only had a few hours and didn't manage more than three turns of the "Besieged" scenario, but it was enough to refresh my fading memories that this is a very good game. I even felt more competent playing it than last time.

Decades of experience really seem to make you a better player!

Saturday evening we brought to an end, what we had begun a couple of weeks earlier: an exciting game of Golan '73.
It is a design so good, I even missed being upset after being auto-defeated by Alban.

At the risk of treading on someone's toes I do claim that the game's victory conditions are flawed and can lead to ahistorical play.
Still a very interesting game on which I have not given up yet.

On that day we couldn't bring it to conclusion, but I'm quite sure it was the rebellion side marching down victory lane.

Interesting. Not sure if a want to play it again, I think I'd rather play Triumph of Chaos when I want to play a game with lots of Chrome.

I only played the 1-day introductory scenarios so far, but I really like this game. I like the card activation and the combat chit system. The color coding could be better.

This is one my favorite shorter games. A real delight to look at!
