The Mane Historical Wargamers Association is pleased to welcome game masters, attendees, vendors, and guests to the registration site for Huzzah! 2018. Thank you for your interest and enthusiasm in supporting (mostly) historical wargaming in New England. The convention continues to grow, reaching at least 350+ participants! The offers of assistance from individuals and clubs throughout the region has been tremendous, and we are looking forward to a weekend of great games and excellent company at the DoubleTree in South Portland, Maine. Our site:
Some highlights for this year's Huzzah! 2018
The 100th Anniversary of the celebration of the victory in the war to end all wars; WW I themed games as well as the featured game, Breakout: Amiens! on Saturday night. Last year's renowned WW II Battle of Stalingrad themed games will be returning as well. Even if you do not play in the featured or themed games, you will not want to miss seeing them!
The Huzzah! Cadets!
Our youth outreach program continues in 2018 with some great games that are kid friendly. Young players can visit various games at the convention to experience different genres and periods of gaming, and win some prizes too!

A discounted room rate has been negotiated for attendees of Huzzah! The discount provides a room with two double beds for $109 USD USD per night. You have all of the convenience of staying at the convention venue! A new hotel, Tru by Hilton, has also been opened and shares the same parking lot for the DoubleTree. For the Huzzah! DoubleTree discounted block, go to: link
You must hurry, as the discounted rooms sold out quickly last year

We are delighted, and very lucky, to have the support of a wonderful group of vendors who bring their shops to Maine for the weekend. The complete list of returning vendors, as well as new ones joining, is a work in progress. Please see the main Huzzah! page as the list of sponsors continues to grow as we get closer to the convention. If you are interested in shopping and visiting the convention (not playing any games) please note that you are free to do so at no cost. We encourage you to wander the convention to view the games, and to shop at our great vendors who will be in attendance.

Attendees wishing to play boardgames at Huzzah! must also register for the day or weekend through the registration system, selecting the board game option in each time slot that you wish to play board games. There will be tables for scheduled games, as well as space for pick up games.

Tournament participants, when registering for the convention, please select the tournament game in the appropriate time slot. If your tournament spans several sessions, please select each tournament session.

Thank you for considering Huzzah! 2018. We hope that you will join us for a great weekend of gaming and fun. Our game masters and vendors offer truly wonderful tabletops and miniatures, and the games prepared for you will be terrific.

Participant registration will open on March 10, and can be found here:
