IRONCON is a bi-city initiative of my buddy Stan (in Montreal) and myself (in Ottawa) to start a NEW series of board-gaming events focusing on the MOST challenging games (hence the "IRON" in the name). By this we mean either in terms of difficulty, depth, endurance , etc.

This "Fall" IRONCON will take place starting Friday evening and ending Sunday afternoon in center-west MONTREAL. Meal food and drink will be up to players but some refreshments and snacks will be provided. Transportation between Ottawa and Montreal is being arranged for those who may need it.

This IRONCON's theme will be: The Games of Martin Wallace and Vlaada Chvatil (Hardcore Designers of Repute Series - Part I). This is not to exclude other games people may like to play; however priority will be given to those most relating to the theme. The format is come and go as you please but the games will be scheduled in advance so players can prepare.

Some of the games we currently are proposing to hold are: Through The Ages, Dungeon Lords, Galaxy Trucker, Brass, Mage Knight, Star Trek: Frontiers, Automobile, Any of the "Steam" series, etc...

SO....if you are interested and able to come up for a session, a day, or a weekend, please contact me for more information...

----------------------------------------------------------------------

CALL FOR GM SUBMISSIONS!!!

DEADLINE Sept. 4 (but the space/time fabric in this continuum is limited so the earlier the better...!)

The success of IRONCON depends on brave folk to step up and run events so please, please consider running a game. You MAY play - and possibly win - any game you are GMing.

It is (highly) preferred that you choose from "Vunderkind" Wallace's or that "Master of Funky Design" Chvatil's vast repertoire of excellent, tough games. But we'll try to fit you in if you absolutely want to run something else. And if you can wait then fear not - there'll be more IRONCONs in the future...

As a general rule we are planning the following time slots:
FRI - 18h00 to 24h00,
SAT - 09h30 to 12h30, 13h30 to 17h30, 18h00 to 24h00; and,
SUN - 09h30 to 12h30

Each slot can hold 3-4 gaming sessions simultaneously.

Q: What do I need to do to submit?
A: Send me a message with the following details:

- Your name,
- The game you wish to run,
- How many players/session and how many sessions?
- Which time slots do you prefer (give a primary and at least one alternate); and,
- Would you be interested for this to be THE official IRONCON tournament? (A trophy for the victor is in the works...)

IRONCON was a blast and all attendees had a great time. There were 4 of us who made the trek down to Mtl. I'm posting AARs, commentary, and pix as the GMs provide on Facebook. If interested to check them out, please send me an BGG-mail.

Everyone left anticipating the Spring IRONCON in April, 2017 in Ottawa...
