So, where exactly is the con taking place? I saw hotels but did not see convention location. Thanks.

Ok, found it in the news blog, like buried treasure grin

NJ Convention and Expo Center. Yes?

WarWizard17 Feb 2014 7:09 a.m. PST

I could not find convention location anywhere. I suggest putting it on the home page.

Hope to make it to this show this year.

Sysiphus17 Feb 2014 8:06 a.m. PST

This would be an easier drive than Virginia, for this New Englander. wink

whitphoto17 Feb 2014 9:13 a.m. PST

Edison nj, under directions

NJCON Fire in the East17 Feb 2014 9:53 a.m. PST

Apologies for hiding that tidbit of information.

New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center
97 Sunfield Avenue, Edison, NJ 08837

Just a few minutes off Exit 10 on the NJTPK.

For all those returning, this is the same venue as last year.

NJCON Fire in the East17 Feb 2014 5:48 p.m. PST

We are beginning to see a growing contingent from parts New England. I hope to see you there.

47Ronin18 Mar 2014 1:33 p.m. PST

Now that Cold Wars is over, time to start thinking about a game (or two) for NJCon in June.

I'm sure NJCon will be popular with all those GMs in the Northeast who don't want to make a longer drive to you know where in July.

The Bring and Buy at NJCon should also be worth a look for both buyers and sellers.

Plus, NJCon has food trucks.

Hope to see you there.

rustycop18 Mar 2014 3:16 p.m. PST

Cliff promised a topless massage chair with hot oil for the con

Blue Devil 8818 Mar 2014 3:59 p.m. PST

Problem is it is Cliff that's topless.

TRUgamer18 Mar 2014 4:41 p.m. PST

I can tell Rusty was scarred from the sight we both saw at Cold Wars on Saturday.
If only there was a way to blind my minds eye. lol.


TRUgamer18 Mar 2014 4:49 p.m. PST

I'm busily working on my 28mm Pegasus Bridge game for NJcon (Fire in the East). I'm going all out getting ready for this game since its being played on the anniversary.
I may start to post some work in progress photos once it begins to take shape.


rustycop18 Mar 2014 5:32 p.m. PST

Tom if you need anything for the game let me know looking forward to seeing it.

Tumbleweed Supporting Member of TMP18 Mar 2014 7:04 p.m. PST

I hope it is very successful and has a great turnout.

TRUgamer19 Mar 2014 8:46 a.m. PST

Thanks Rusty,
I got a hold of the barbed wire guy (Rick) and he is seeing what he can do for me. Thanks for hooking me up!

The event list continues to grow.

Should be a great weekend.

keegantdad04 May 2014 10:32 a.m. PST

Is there going to be a SAGA tournament? I thought I read somewhere that there would be an Xwing and a SAGA tourneys but I only see FOW and DBM tournaments listed on the events.

NJCON Fire in the East06 May 2014 8:54 a.m. PST

I have a note out to the guys organizing the SAGA Tourny.
We will update the website as soon as I get more details.

If you would like to participate in any of our Tournaments please submit your name/contact info to:

The X-Wing tournament appears to have morphed into a Mega Game instead.

NJCON Fire in the East06 May 2014 9:14 a.m. PST

Look for our ad in this months issue of Wargames Illustrated (May).

It was great to see many of you at the Cruiser Olympia Fundraiser event in Philadelphia on Saturday. what a great lead in to "Fire in the East".

Only one month to go!


tancred06 May 2014 3:17 p.m. PST

Will there be a SAGA game?

114th Pennsylvania Supporting Member of TMP06 May 2014 4:51 p.m. PST

Tom and tancred,

Short answer is YES, I will put you down as players. We will be posting the event over the weekend. 3 rounds with room for 8 players for Saturday.

tancred07 May 2014 5:34 p.m. PST

114th PA, thanks. I just ordered the rulebook and am a novice, to say the least. I hope that is okay.

47Ronin13 May 2014 2:02 p.m. PST

FYI, an updated list of Vendors has been posted to the NJCon web page listed above. It includes Age of Glory, Brigade Games, Maplewood Hobby and On Military Matters.

You can also download the forms to list items to sell at the convention Bring and Buy.

Hope to see you there.

keegantdad18 May 2014 5:15 p.m. PST

Still no SAGA posted in events. I plan on coming but don't want to preregister until I know when the tourney is going to happen,

NJCON Fire in the East20 May 2014 6:28 a.m. PST

SAGA Tournament information has been posted!
Please go to the NJC6-FITE website for details.

Here is a link to the Sergeants Miniatures Game events that were run at NJ Con this past weekend. Also, a few photos of the very impressive Pegasus Bridge featured game. WOW!!

47Ronin14 Jun 2014 11:01 a.m. PST

Great convention.

Well done to all those who made it possible.

47Ronin11 May 2020 11:37 a.m. PST

Rather than start a new topic, I went into the TMP Achieves and picked out the most appropriate title regarding NJCON to pass along the following update.

If you have attended NJCON/Fire In The East (usually held in June) in the past (like I have), you might have been wondering about its status for 2020. It will come as no surprise that the convention has been postponed. In addition to the virus lockdown still in effect in NJ, the venue was not available this year. For details, please see the links above to the NJCON website.

As you will see, there is still hope that NJCON may return in the Fall. NJCON is hosted and supported by a dedicated and experienced group of organizers, vendors and GMs. If anybody can find a way to go forward with a convention, they can. Most of them already survived "SweatCon" years ago, the pictures from which are on the NJCON website.

This also might be an opportunity to return to Somerset, the home of the Historicon that never was. We'll see.

Either way, hope to see you there.

TRUgamer12 May 2020 3:36 p.m. PST

Sorry to say NJCON-"Fire in the East" will not be happening in 2020. It's just not in the cards.


114th Pennsylvania Supporting Member of TMP12 May 2020 4:13 p.m. PST

Sorry All,

But NO NJCON12- "Fire in the East" in 2020

The Convention Center is currently being used for COVID-19. We will not go in the Fall since we do not want to effect Barrage nor Fall-In, since we have been accused in the past of trying to compete with HMGS shows which was total BS.

Thank you to all our supporter and Vendors that have helped us to grow the show, we shall see you next year.

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
