NJ Con will be held on 9-10 June in New Jersey. A number of the HAWKs are going to head up to run a few games. Among the games we are taking up there are three Combat Patrol(TM) games (http://www.bucksurdu.com/Buck_Surdu/Combat_Patrol.html).

Zeb Cook is running a cowboy game using his under-development Wild West variant of Combat Patrol(TM): World War II. Various factions battle it out in a wild west town.


Duncan Adams will run a War of 1812 game using his recently released black powder era supplement for Combat Patrol(TM). This scenario is set in a small Caribbean coastal village. The Americans land in the village to push out the British.

Come and experience the streamlined mechanics of Combat Patrol. Cards are used to resolve combat, not just manage activation. A card draw takes the place of calculating a bunch of modifiers, rolling some dice, and then looking up a result on a table. The result is that you can fight the game, not the rules. Check out the rules' Web page (http://www.bucksurdu.com/Buck_Surdu/Combat_Patrol.html) for demonstration videos, free downloads, and other information.

Thanks, all. I will be running several WWII games at Historicon. One will be France 1940 and two France 1944 games. Several others will be running non-WWII Combat Patrol games. Come by and say hello.

Just to clarify:

- The NJCON Combat Patrol games will be run on a single table dedicated to HAWKs games.

- The Historicon Combat Patrol games that Buck mentioned will be in the usual HAWKs room.
