UNITY GAMES

Started: 2001 till present (sometimes two a year are held).
Location: Has been held in several locations in the Greater Boston area.
Info: http://www.unitygames.org/
Date: On average there is one in August and another in January or Feb.

Hi-lites: This is a solid boardgame only convention that only goes one day, but boy oh boy it is a full day. Open gaming is the primary name of the game though people connect to play unofficial games together.

ECONO-CON


Started: 1998 (I think)
Location: Plymouth state University Plymouth, NH (gateway to the White Mountains)
Info: http://psugaming.wordpress.com/econocon/
Date: In April every year.

Hi-Lites: Love this Con. It is very casual but pack full of gaming of all kinds and plenty of boardgames. It is a student run event and they reserve the entire student union for gaming. The plus, it is cheap! Something like $10 for both days. Plus plenty of door prizes, last year I won a very top of the line Poker set.

CARNAGE CON


Started: 1997
Location: Lake Morey Resort, Fairlee, Vermont
Info: http://www.carnagecon.com/
Date: First weekend in November


Hi-Lite: Well the boys and girls accross the river in Vermont do this one right. They take over an entire and beautiful lake side resort. There are rooms full of historical minatures, rooms dedidicated to boardgameing, a seperate (garden side) wargaming room, LARP, RPG, CCG,..they even have a full screen movie theater that plays classic sci-fi during the con. In the evening they even open up a full service bar while you game. Solid!
