Seven Years War Convention

We will be attending the SYW Association Convention as gamers and a vendor, and as always, we’ll deliver your orders free of charge, to the convention for pickup!

This convention also has a strangely high number of published game designers who attend, so hacking over game design theory, the nuts and bolts of history, or the trials of publishing are all topics that get plenty of air time.

If you haven’t attended the Seven Years War Convention you really should. It is a terrific, chummy convention that normally runs just over 100 attendees. The gamers who take part are very social and the hotel is quite hospitable. 

This is the third year we’ll be attending as a vendor. So when you spot us, please don’t hesitate to say hello. Meeting and talking is the fun part (and the games)!

Dates:
April 4-6
Location:Waterford Estates
