2 years ago, Cold Wars 2015. Since then it has been cheaper to just take time off an game at home.

0.013 years!

CATenWolde Inactive Member17 Mar 2017 1:33 a.m. PST

About 10 years! :(

I used to go to 3-4 conventions per year when I was living in the USA, and it was a huge part of my hobby life. Since moving to Helsinki I have been cut off completely, and it has made my gaming more insular. The convention circuit is one of the big reasons I'm looking forward to moving back!

nevinsrip Sponsoring Member of TMP17 Mar 2017 1:45 a.m. PST

Historicon in 2003. or 2004. Whatever year that they honored Hal MWAN.

advocate17 Mar 2017 1:58 a.m. PST

Six months

abelp0117 Mar 2017 2:18 a.m. PST

11 years. Although I miss the games I could get to play, it always felt like total chaos with people removing names on the game schedule board. Absolutely no monitoring of this and other issues. It's probably been fixed since then, but if it isn't, well, I'm just gettin' too old (and ill) for that manure!

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP17 Mar 2017 2:24 a.m. PST

6 months but there have been gaps of 2 years or more between conventions.

JimDuncanUK17 Mar 2017 3:27 a.m. PST

I attend somewhere between 10 and 12 shows a year so not long in between them.

TGerritsen Supporting Member of TMP17 Mar 2017 4:34 a.m. PST

0.1 as I was just at a show last month and will be at one next week. I probably hit at least 4 shows a year, sometimes 6-8.

Ceterman Supporting Member of TMP17 Mar 2017 4:49 a.m. PST

Since, by your own interpretation "boardgames with miniatures" count, I attended CMoN Expo last year.

May 2016

Chris Wimbrow17 Mar 2017 9:15 a.m. PST

TennCon in the late 90s, only because it was in Knoxville.

From money to physical difficulties, I don't travel much.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP17 Mar 2017 9:54 a.m. PST

I can usually make it to something every year.
