On 18 August 2018, Spellenclub Mechelen organizes the first Belgian 18xx Convention to create opportunities for gamers new to 18xx to learn a wonderful game and game system and for experienced 18xx fans to meet other fans and play (a few) game(s).

We hope to see you there!

If I always teach the game and lose, that must mean I'm a great teacher, right?

Registration still possible, though some tables are already full. So do not hesitate.
If you cannot make it, we will announce the date of our Winter convention soon.

Hi,
I would have loved to participate, but unfortunately I will be away...
We have a collection of 18xx games in Namur, but only a few available players. If there is shared interest for planning 18xx games in Mechelen, Namur or anywhere nearby (<100km), please keep me informed!
Thank you,
Jean "John" Michalski

Cool. An earlier start time would be nice, as it allows for more games to be played. I think I could get a lot more people interested if it would start at say 10:00h. And at what time does it end, 0:00h?

When you have a date, let me know and I'll see if I can get a bunch of people interested. Bringing games would also be no problem. I can probably bring 1825, 1848: Australia, 1849, 1860, 1889, 18MEX and all Winsome blisters. Also various others (see my owned list), but I presume that with a lot of relative new players shorter games are preferred.

I'm in Dutch Limburg. If you ever decide to do an 18XX day in Belgian Limburg I'm in .

Edit: assuming I actually enjoy playing 18XX games (I think I will though) but I'll find that out this Saturday in Mechelen .

Early start: check. End time: no end time

Nothing is dediced yet, but Winter Convention most probably will be a full weekend, with the possibility to play on Friday evening, organized play on Saturday (long game & short game) and "something" on Sunday (prototype, demo or free).

Hope to see you then!

Is “no end time” also applicable to this Saturday? If so, I’ll have to do some expectation management at home .

If someone wants to buy something from RailsOnBoards shop http://www.railsonboards.com/our-shop/ (wooden tokens, mounted revenue table), there will be a possibility to pick up the stuff during the convention, but the order must be placed before November 3.

Last call for Winter Convention, starting next Friday. The programme is online if you are still not convinced.
If you are too busy this weekend, save the date: 7-9 June 2019.

Short summary of the winter edition from my point of view: http://www.railsonboards.com/2018/12/03/belgian-18xx-convent...

Craig and Dave from The Train Rush podcast were there as well, and they recorded a short episode on place: https://thetrainrush.cast.rocks/?ep=20RSOHOG-ZC8A1YV

Registration is up (if someone missed that).

Is someone planning to arrive earlier on Friday? I would gladly start at ~14h, so we could play a shorter game (like 1849 or 1848), before the convention actually begins. We would have to find a place to play though (maybe Luk/David could recommend something).

Time to give an update for the 3rd Belgian 18xx Convention
7 - 10 June 2019 (Friday till Monday) in Mechelen.

We will have a broad international audience with many different nationalities, improving the warm and friendly atmosphere of this convention. Registrations are counting (though no limit yet).

We already have 2 prototypes:
1840 Vienna from Lonny Orgler, planned to be launched as a KS campaign. We already had this prototype at the Winter Convention. Now we have revised/optimised rules.
18DO Dortmund from Marflow Games.

We offer free pickup for orders from Marflow Games (since we will pick them up for you in Germany, please place your order using the contact form on our website.
We hope to offer free pickup for orders from Rails on Boards too, one of them has already registered, but RoB has to confirm. We do not take orders, you have to order from them.

We will have many sessions, but for the real diehards, we organize a full 18OE session on Saturday 8 June 2019. If you are interested, please mention it on your registration form.

And for those who cannot make it, no worries, because you can already save the date for our Winter convention: Friday 29 November till Sunday 1 December 2019.

I hope to see many of you in Mechelen.
Please share

There's a local game shop called De Spelfanaat not far from the venue, Putsesteenweg 17, Mechelen. It's open during the day and they have a room in the back where you can play. This is the official venue of our boardgameclub.

Do note that me and Luk might be to busy with preparations in order to join you.
