Having relocated down to the Carolinas from "up North", I plan to run some Age of Sail games at the upcoming Southern Front 2016 Con in Raleigh and see some advice from knowledgeable people (are you monitoring communications, Mr Mohrmann?).

Based upon general experience, what is a sensible game size in terms of number of participants, given attendance history.

20 player mega-games probably do not make sense.

Am I safe running 4-6 player scenarios?

What about 6-8 players?

Thanks in advance for your input.

6-8 players is doable. I've run 6 player games before and have always had a full house.

For southern front you may want to keep it to 4-6 @ max 4 hrs and have multiple games through out the con.

We do not have the depth of players as one would like to see and with navel ( though there is much talk/interest of late).

Hopefully Ed will pop in who has run it for many years (Plus knows all the local charaters)and can give much better direction.

Thanks for the advice, guys. Hopefully we'll get to meet and shake hands in Raleigh.
