Nuke-Con is this weekend!

This weekend is Nuke-Con, a gaming convention held in Council Bluffs, IA (which is across the Missouri River from Omaha, NE for those that don’t know). I’ve been to GenCon three times now but this will be my first local con. I’m really excited about it and look forward to meeting other gamers in my area.

If you’re going to be there, or know someone who is, make sure to say hi if you see me. You can see my picture on my About page. I’ll be there Friday evening and pretty much all day on Sunday.

And if you have nothing to do on Sunday, I’m running a game at noon. I’ll be running Legends are Made, not Born. It’s a great game that I’ve run before a few times and is a lot of fun. I’ve done a video review of it in the past, which you can view here.

For the past few years, an ogre that lairs in a cave near the wilderness town of Dundraville has demanded tributes of ale and supplies. The villagers were happy to comply, lest the brute attack them or destroy their property. But recently, the ogre changed his demands. Now he wants gold, building supplies — and captives! When the ogre walked into town only to have his request denied, he flew into a rage. The brute dragged two townsfolk off to his cave, to be eaten for sure! The villagers have no heroes to protect them — so someone must rise to the challenge! Six determined townsfolk have decided to take justice into their own hands. Can these village commoners defeat the ogre in his own lair before their fellows are eaten?

  • A unique adventure challenge that pits six NPC-classed characters against a challenge far greater than they can handle. Only good thinking and clever strategies can save the day!
  • Includes full stats for 6 pregenerated “local yokels,” all 0-level NPC-classed characters.

I hope to see a few of you there. :D

@Ann – Thanks for commenting! Overall, I liked the convention. My wife and son enjoyed the Paint and Take a lot as well as the fact they could borrow games to play while I was gaming. The people were friendly and sign up was a breeze. I will say I was disappointed at the relatively small turnout, though. I had hoped to see more people. I also would recommend putting all the booths closer to the front entrance because I noticed a lot of people didn’t make it to the booths in the back. All in all it was fun and I plan on attending next year. :)

I’m so glad you liked the paint and take, gaming library, and registration. I’m especially glad the staff was friendly and you are interested in trying us again next year. :)

The much larger hall was a challenge for us this year. We are gathering all suggestions and working on a plan to activate more of the space throughout each day.

Thankfully our numbers were right on target, but with the larger space and lots of extra tables, we looked down right vacant a lot of the time. Hopefully, we can draw more folks in 2009 and start filling the space with more gamers.

Again, we’d love to hear the good and the bad. As we are all volunteers and this is a labor of love (or insanity), people taking time to provide feedback really does help us see our strengths and where we need to improve.
