We seem to be missing a couple of things, like the phrasing of the question, "based on this pre-poll discussion" and a certain big summer convention put on by HMGS (formerly) East.

Fall-In! and (hopefully resurrected) Cold Wars have exactly the same vibe as Historicon (since they are run by the same folks) but one day shorter.

Alas, Millennium has been cancelled this year because the Waco Wingate Hotel, where it's been held for years, demanded an exorbitant raise for booking. I attended all but 2 or 3 & ran a game or 2 at most of them. Hopefully, next year's MilliCon will be held in Temple, Texas, which a little further north of Waco on the same highway.

I'd so-so agree, Scott. All three feel the same when held in the same facility--and, for that matter, in the same era. But an early Fall In at the Ike was not a late Cold Wars at the Host.

Unless you are a board or card gamer, I couldn't recommend Origins.

Add role-playing and cos-play and the same goes for GenCon.

Enfilade – Olympia WA, Memorial Day weekend.

Mserafin is correct!

Someone didn't read the question… grin

Someone didn't post the question--or the pre-poll discussion.

It's right there, Robert.
