CharCon is creeping ever closer and I thought it was time to give everyone 10 good reasons why they should all attend!

CharCon takes place in Charleston WV (which by the way is an easy drive from all sorts of places on the east coast of the US) on October 18th & 19th. This will be our third and hopefully most successful year.

We have a very solid board game presence and are working to grow it as much as we can every year.

You can find all sorts of information about CharCon on www.charcon.org



And now, the ten reasons everyone should attend CharCon!

This is the game everyone has been talking about and Rio Grande will be debuting it at Essen. Guess what? You can play it a week before Essen at CharCon! Get a chance to see and play what is sure to become a mega hit before it is even released! You will be the envy of all your friends. Better yet, bring all your friends to CharCon with you and kick their butts at Dominion!

Everyone likes free swag, especially gamers. Every person who pre-registers for CharCon will get a free game. Yes, for real.

What are you waiting for? Go pre-register! http://www.charcon.org/forum/showthread.php?t=217

Thanks to Rio Grande Games and CABS for making this possible!

Speaking of CABS, don't forget Buckeye Game Fest is in a week! http://www.buckeyeboardgamers.org/buckeyegamefest.htm

If you have never played Aerodrome, then this alone is reason enough to come to CharCon. Aerodrome is like Wings of War on steroids (without the shrinkage). It is a truly immersive and fantastically fun game. Not only do you get to shoot down enemy planes, but they track your kills from game to game (and from convention to convention!) and when you hit certain benchmarks you receive authentic replica WWI medals. How cool is that?

Plus, CharCon is an annual Ace of Aces tournament, which means the top pilot of the weekend is recognized for his efforts and likely receives something in return for his efforts!

Thanks to North Star Games, we will be hosting the super popular Wits & Wagers game show at CharCon. Not only that, but each time the game show takes place, each member of the winning team is going to get their very own copy of Wits & Wagers! More free swag!

If you haven't played the game show version of this great game, then you are missing out. Stop it! Come to CharCon and check it out! If you haven't played this game at all, what the heck is wrong with you?

Speaking of Essen, face it, most of us aren't going. I mean who needs it anyway. Its full of all those cool new games that everyone will go crazy wanting to play for the next year and thousands upon thousands of other gamers. That doesn't sounds like much...fun...

Ok, truth is I am sure Essen is great and I would go if I could, but I can't so, CharCon is the next best thing. Come to CharCon and we can deal with our not being able to go to Essen together! Group game therapy!

CharCon is gonna be horrific! Gruesome, grotesque, spooky, scary, heinous, insidious, nasty stuff at CharCon this year. Of course that is because our theme is all about Horror. Being so close to Halloween, it was an easy choice! You will find all sorts of games with a horror theme.

Plus, we will be having other things to match the theme, like costume contests and hosting THE RISING LASH (http://risinglash.com/index.html)!

You can play in the annual CharCon Warhammer 40,000 Tournament. You might even win because I will be to busy to bring my Blood Angels out and kick your butt! Lots of great prizes for winners in this event. Nothing but the Emperors Boot in the face for losers!

Finally, if you attend CharCon, you can tell me just how much you think this Geeklist sucks right to my face. Then we can play a game. Maybe get a beer later. I can help you carry all the cool new stuff you win in our raffle, won in the Premiere Board Game Tourney, won playing Wits & Wagers, got for pre-registering, bought from one of our many vendors or stole from one of the Appalachian Gamers...no wait don't do the last one...I can help you carry all that stuff to your car...or not. Either way, you get to tell me how much my Geeklist sucks.
