I am delighted to announce that Oxford's board gaming convention, OxCon, will take place on 28-29th January 2017.

The Facebook page for the event can be found here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/348361128835618/

This year sees the return of our ever-popular Catan tournament, and a newly introduced dexterity game tournament.

Entry is the reasonable sum of £5, payable on the door.

Post to let us know if you're planning on coming.

Hope to see plenty of you there!

The experience of playing with Stuart and Ben last time was so life affirming that I will do my best to attend again next time.

Indeed. I wasn't expecting any information on this for at least another 3 months. whistle

I'm probably going to modify my visit to 'all day Saturday'. The hotel prices seem to have rocketed up this year.

Looks like I'm only going to be able to make Sunday this time so I guess I'll be missing you this time, Ben. Ah well...

Add four of us to the list for Saturday's Settlers tournament:

Peter Woodward
Mike Woodward
Ivan Woodward
Harry Bryant

I don't think we will make it there until 10am but we're happy to join in the tournament even if we miss the first round, or just start a game when we get there. Thanks

Well the number of people taking part in the 'ever popular' OxCon Settlers tournament has somewhat diminished over the past twenty years, with just eight turning up to play this weekend. Hopefully next year will see a bit of a resurgence!

After three seeding rounds the standings were as follows:
1 - Peter (27pts)
=2 - Mike (26pts)
=2 - Josh (26pts)
=2 - Harry (26pts)
=2 - Felix (26pts)
6 - Pete (25pts)
7 - Bill (23pts)
8 - Ivan (18pts)

With Felix unfortunately unable to complete in the 'grand' final it saved having to use any complex algorithms in the event of a tie break and so the last two 'A' and 'B' finals looked like this:

A-Final
1st: Mike (10pts)
2nd: Peter (9pts)
3rd: Josh (9pts)
4th: Harry (8pts)

B-Final
Well actually Bill, Peter and Ivan ended up playing Union Pacific instead, but we'll just take their results from that which put them here:
5th: Peter
6th: Bill
7th: Ivan

Congratulations to Mike Woodward on being crowned (there was no crown, trophy, cup, medal or certificate!) OxCon 2017 Settlers Champion.

Thanks for organising again, hope to see more people taking part in it next year! Great turnout at the venue, just a shame we didn't have more for the tournament.

Thanks, Harry
