CelestiCon 3 is on Facebook now. I'm a complete novice on Facebook, but do a search for CelestiCon.

We had a bunch of boardgame event proposals come in today as well.

Cheers!

Questions about the con. What kind of dealer room will be available? More importantly, will there be a flea market and how will it be set up? Looks like a nice location and near a grocery and some good off-hotel eateries.

thanks in advance

Hi Ray,

It's great to see you on BGG too! It's always nice to connect with local gamers. I've been at DunDraCon all this weekend. It was an exciting convention this year and there was a lot of buzz about CelestiCon.

We have set up the dealer room, contacted interested vendors and are waiting for the right time to announce that information.

There will be a flea market on Friday or Sunday. Details are being worked out and will be influenced by the game schedule. Check http://www.celesticon.com or the Yahoo group at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/celesticon/

Cheers,
Kris

Rick Schuldt’s Historical Miniatures Events at CelestiCon
I am excited to announce that Rick Schuldt, founder of Scenic Effects, will be running two of his impressive historical miniatures events at CelestiCon. One event is a battle on the Tigris River during the 1914-1915 Mesopotamian campaign of WW1 in 28mm. The other event will be a surprise announcement at a later date. Both events will have a tie-in lecture in Dana Lombardy's War College so that participants can play the games and learn the history behind them!

For more information on this and other events at CelestiCon, see www.celesticon.com

Myself and a few of the staff went to the Days of Wonder office today. They were a really nice bunch of people to visit, and generous too. Days of Wonder provided two large boxes of game and prize support for CelestiCon. Thanks! They are sending a demo team too.

Hi Marc,

Not currently. That wouldn't stop anyone, maybe you, from doing it though. We'd welcome a math trade.

Cheers,
Kris
