Cancon is coming - good time to start planning. Who’s in, who’s not, and where are we staying? This year it turns out the Canberra Carotel Motel destroyed our beloved living quarters for some reason. This was super disappointing as where we usually went was absolutely perfect for Cancon. It was the right distance from the venue, it was isolated enough so we could be loud into the early morning without disrupting others, it had a massive fridge to hold everything, and it had two giant tables which could comfortably fit two or three large games.
Colonising The Death Planet
Red, Hideki, and Spike quickly realised there wasn’t much hope. Thriving within the subterranean planet was almost certainly futile. Water, warmth, food, and oxygen were practically non-existent. The initial survey determined they were inside The Death Planet. How and why they were there was anyone’s guess. The first Duplicant would be printed in a few cycles.
Cancon? Yes. Not long after that, we descended upon Canberra for Round Two of the epic event known simply as Cancon. This time around was a little bit different than last time, but it was just as excellent. We had a slightly different group of people, and I didn’t participate in any tournaments.
I was invited to attend Cancon this year, a convention focusing on miniature games, card games, and board games. Games are awesome, so a long weekend of playing games was locked in. I had so much fun it was ridiculous, anyone that likes games should go check it out (even if you’re not sure about liking games just yet) – make sure you can stay somewhere with a bunch of people.
