COMPETITIONS?
Name the Game Name Game
For lovers of game bits and puzzles here is a puzzle about game bits to test your knowledge. Pick up a page of pictures and write down which game they are from. Run by Jason for Tactics (blame him for the pictures not me) there are two prizes to win. The prize for the most correct is Pandemic (10th Anniversary Edition) and a random entrant that scored five less than the winner will win Ghost Blitz: 5 to 12.

Dual Dice Decathlon Duel
It's back again but this year it is with a twist or two. This time teams of two players will pit their athletic dice rolling skills live against other teams.
Get the details and sign up at Dual Dice Decathlon Duel @ D-Con 2018.
The prizes for this tournament are BANG! The Dice Game.

Deep Sea Adventures
A group of poor explorers hoping to get rich quickly heads out to recover treasures from some undersea ruins. They're all rivals, but their budgets force them all to share a single rented submarine. In the rented submarine, they all have to share a single tank of air, as well.
Get the details and sign up at Deep Sea Adventure Tournament @ D-Con 2018.
The prize for this tournament is Deep Sea Adventure.

Pandemic Survival
Teams of two players compete to be the first team to find all four cures, or to be the last team still alive at the end of the game. Each team has the same roles, they all have the same player cards; epidemics strike at the same time for all teams; the same infections affect every game.
Get the details and sign up at Pandemic Survival @ D-Con 2018.
The prizes for this tournament are Codenames: Pictures and Codenames: Duet.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue Survival
Teams of two players compete to be the first team to find enough victims to secure victory, get out of the house and meet outside - or
be the last team still alive when time runs out. Each team has the same roles, the same house layout and the same victim locations. Smoke and new victims will appear in every house at the same location at the same time.
Get the details and sign up at Flash Point Survival @ D-Con.
The prizes for this tournament are The Great Heartland Hauling Co. and Spot it!.

Wits & Wagers
Your evening entertainment is taken care of again with this one. Odd questions with odder answers (spelling mistakes not guaranteed this year).
Who will be on your team of four this year?
Get the details and sign up at Wits & Wagers Team Tournament At D-Con 2018.
Each team member on the winning team will win a prize.

TRADE TABLES? There will be several tables set aside in the Hakea Room to enable the selling, buying and trading of games.
Games can be added to the tables from 11.30, with the tables closing at 7.00. This year, to try and better manage the number of tables and the space required, the following conditions apply:
Only current WABA members will be able to place games for sale or trade on the tables
All items must have a WABA tag on them and include the WABA member number (on the name badge) and telephone contact number of the seller. These will be available at the table or from Nick or Patrik (wearing red vests).
Games not meeting these requirements will be removed from the tables for collection by the seller.
If you would like to prepare tags before Saturday, geekmail either:

Well, the ‘updates’ is not very specific. Don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask. I actually just thought the updates just mean prize updates.

It is not very specific on purpose as the wheels are turning and things are being discussed and decided behind the curtains.

I think it's ok to say that there will be more updates about all the things that are happening at D-Con, not just prizes. We just need time to iron out the kinks.

I've run it three times in the past month so giving it a break.
