After numerous conversations about an 18xx con at LFG last weekend I am polling for interest for an 18xx con in Sydney.

This would (at least initially) be a one day eight to twelve hour event.

There would be a mix of 18xx games there including entry level games (like 1889 and potentially 18Chesapeake), but also some harder to play in Australia games (like 1817).

It would be a one day con on a Saturday or Sunday running from morning to afternoon/ evening.

Likely cost is $10 to $20 a head.

Minimum attendance would be something like ten people, but there would be sufficient capacity to go much higher.

If you are interested either message me or post here with any questions or thoughts

Looking likely to be Saturday November 2 from 10am to 10pm.

I will 100% have 1830 and 1846 there along with poker chips.

I’ll try to confirm ASAP if 18CZ, 1822(assuming it fulfil), 1824, 1817 and 1889 will likely be available too.

I'd always figured it was inevitable. I made my own 18AL three years ago, but still haven't played it. I landed 1830 in an auction, and it's still in shrink. When the opportunity came up for a bundle more, I limited myself to three because I have restraint.

This 18xx Con looks like an opportunity to do more than solo 1829 Mainline.

Hey folks!

Whilst Andrew is the brain child, I'm managing some of the other aspects of this event. We've pencilled in the 2nd of November for now, and depending on the success we may plan future events with more advance notice.

Once we've locked in a venue (see question 1 below), I'll start ticket sales.

I have a few questions for you...

1. CBD location, or non-CBD location (if non-cbd please list preference, ie, inner west, outer west, lower north shore, etc) I have a good CBD location already picked out, but I know sometimes people find this difficult due to not being able to park in the CBD (although all day parking is around $20).

2. Assuming a base entry price of $10-15... Would you pay extra if tea and coffee were included, or catering?

3. Name of the con - please submit ideas. Current favourites are a simple 18xx Sydney, or 18xx Sydney Rattler Con. I am leaning towards 18xx sydney, but I'm open to creative ideas.

4. Anything you'd like to see from the event? Bear in mind it is the first event so keep expectations reasonable But stuff like minimum table size, is useful to know, or just generally what you'd need to have a fun gaming experience for 12 hours.

If anyone prefers to use facebook you can also find the group we've just set up: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1464563123685893/
