Howdy folks,

I thought I would save some 1's and 0's and consolidate all of my post-Cangames blogposts to this one TMP post. Cangames took place in Ottawa over the recent long weekend (Queen Victoria holiday). It is a 3 day convention with miniature gaming, rpg'ing, and board gaming a plenty.

I had a pretty open schedule, family wise, this year and I was able to take in gaming on all 3 days. For your viewing pleasure, I leave you the following posts:

link (random pics of tables throughout the weekend)
link (Friday night Frostgrave)
link (Force on Force on Ambush Z)
link (Saturday Bombards and Bayonets)
link (Flight of the Apocalypse Zombies!)

Hope you enjoy the pics…cheers.

Happened to be on a business trip in Ottawa while this convention was going on

Loved it as a smaller convention – from the vendors to the gaming

Gaming ranged from Fantasy to Historical – even some kids games with prizes – more than a half a dozen vendors as well –

In addition to the pictures above there was a nice WWI game going on as well – quite a few older games, good discounts on miniatures and more

Since I couldn't attend much of the gaming due to meetings – I really appreciated being able to go in, look around and buy from vendors without a fee – and shop I did :

Will be an event I plan to attend in the future – only this time will plan to stay and game

Thanks for posting Stan, I've just gotten my April and early May activities posted, so my Cangames report is still not up. I enjoyed playing on the French side with you in the Fort William Henry game, despite our failure to get and stay inside.

This was my first time there and I had a good time, getting a feel for the con. I hope to be back next year and maybe run a game or two. My older Ottawa-area nephew will be old enough to come and game too, though I'm not sure I'll turn him loose on the kids area yet.
