Oyez, oyez, oyez!
Anyone intending to run a game at Historicon 2018 has 3 weeks-thats 21 days--to submit your application to HMGS.


Also, to avoid not having an on-site room, click here for the Host's Historicon reservation form.

(Does the click-on map of the Host Layout _really_ say "Maim Lobby"???)

See ya there!

Thanks I was wondering how long I had to get an entry in…

Better get busy…

capncarp20 Mar 2018 10:18 a.m. PST

I will continue to nag, errr, _remind_ folks with a cheerful, bright, happyhappy,joyjoy posting every couple of days until all who wanted to register have registered or until they rise up, hunt me down to my lair, and stake me to the ground in self-defense.

capncarp20 Mar 2018 10:19 a.m. PST

Holien, you're coming all the way 'cross the Pond to run a game for us Colonials???? How blest are we!

Pizzagrenadier20 Mar 2018 10:20 a.m. PST

It's 2018, why do we need to submit so far ahead?

Duncan Adams20 Mar 2018 11:10 a.m. PST

It's 2018, why do we need to submit so far ahead?

Because before the end of April people will be whining about not having a PEL.

Capncarp I love the gaming scene you gents have over there and I like to try and contribute to keep it going.

6mm are just about OK to carry, although with some odd looks as they go through security…

I wish I could make all 3 events but work does not allow for that.

I am hoping the Host will be up to it and people support the event to keep it going….

Does anyone know when or how they're planning to maim the lobby?

Their food.

Hey, Dan! Looks like we got a potential volunteer with lots of energy to devote to the streamlining and processing of game submissions!! Grab him before he comes to his senses!

Holien: You can always tell the TSA folks that you are a special researcher using the minis to try to outthink international terrorists and their evil plans. The shakos, the busbys, the camp followers, and the bricoles are just camouflage to confuse any snoops.

capncarp22 Mar 2018 9:16 a.m. PST

Type faster--only 20 days left until the deadline!
Hurry, hurry!!!

Poniatowski22 Mar 2018 9:32 a.m. PST

Games are coming in quickly and I might say.. there is some really cool stuff happening this year…. I wish folks would do these awesome things at Fall In!…. but I am biased.

Get them in… for those of you who were at Cw.. I do not think the situation on space will have changed by Hcon…. that means limited space. I will have my work cut out for me….

And PLEASE by all things wholesome…. if you are running a game that uses someone else's terrain or need to be near someone… PLEASE oh PLEASE get your events in on the SAME day.. it is incredibly hard to rearrange a show a month later when someone says… "Hey, can you put me on the same table as XYZ…." a month after the other game was scheduled….

THANK YOU in advance!

Duncan for the win, as usual.

Honorable mention to rmcaras.

capncarp24 Mar 2018 3:17 p.m. PST

Only 18 days left! Have you submitted your game yet???

capncarp26 Mar 2018 8:34 p.m. PST

Sixteen Days! A fortnight, a day, and a wake-up!
<counts fingers, removes shoes and socks> Two hands, one foot, and the little piggy that goes "Wee-wee-wee-wee" all the way home!
This is all the time you have left, game masters, before the dread curtain of deadline falls!

capncarp03 Apr 2018 10:18 a.m. PST

A-hem….Hello (hello…hello), Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home???

Eight days to go.

95th Division03 Apr 2018 12:08 p.m. PST

capncarp07 Apr 2018 7:57 a.m. PST

Saturday (today)
Wednesday--April 11, final day for submitting your event for the Preliminary Events List to be published so all us slavering gamers can choose _your_ game for their preregistration selection.

PJ ONeill07 Apr 2018 8:48 a.m. PST

Alright Cap- I'll take you at your word- your Friday evening is booked ! :-)

capncarp08 Apr 2018 8:47 p.m. PST

Not only has the PEL deadline passed, but the Historicon web page says that game/event registration is closed.

Sounds like no room at the inn, or in this case, The Host.

Not to worry. You can still submit a game for NJCON in June. See the related topic for details.

Now we wait for the PEL to show up. Somebody should start a betting pool on when it will appear.

capncarp12 Apr 2018 4:37 p.m. PST

Online PreRegistration and the PEL are interlinked, so, they will open/appear relatively simultaneously.
