DixieCon 32 is underway!

Postby DQ » 25 May 2018, 17:04

Last night began with a couple of games of Terraforming Mars - I crashed out before midnight, but games went on until the wee hours.

Diplomacy starts today at 6pm - plenty of time for all y'all to get here! :)

http://www.dixiecon.com/ Updates throughout the weekend!
Stab you soon!

Can we have a pic of you all?

So we can imagine and share the experience by proxy.

We want photos of playdippers. Make with the camera you two.

I got there yesterday, played a long game of space empires (all 4 of us were learning the game) that ended at 1am, then crashed out. Looking forward to Dip at 6!

First round did not go well, a quickly ganged up on and eliminated Austria. Second round went much better, with a 10 center France as part of a three way. Also played somewhere around 7 hours of stratomatic baseball, which is always a good thing.

Photos to follow, but David Miller won this year, with a 2 way draw in the final round to edge out returning Champion Andy Bartalone.

I tied for 6th. 5 boards per round, 41 individual players. Very nice turnout for a year when it isn't WDC/Dip Con.
