This is an event report for the 18th Annual U-Con Abstract Games Tournament, which was held at the U-Con Gaming Convention in Ypsilanti, MI, USA, from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM on 10 November 2018.

Seven competitors participated this year, which is the second smallest turn-out to date. As in years past, I drew heavily from the games listed in my GeekList, Two Player Abstracts Suitable for Tournament Play, even though some of the tournament games may not yet be on that list.
