We have tons in store for you over the weekend! You don’t’ need anything to play in any of our gaming events; just walk up and jump in for as long or short of a time you care to play. Be sure to pick up a copy of the gaming schedule at registration to see exactly when and where all the fun will happen. Here’s a look at some of what we’ll have going on…
The gaming only stops, if you stop playing.
The Chattacon Scavenger Hunt
Tom Blanks promises this year’s Hunt will be the best one ever! Well, he didn’t actually tell me that, but I’m sure it will be… 🙂 He’ll be giving out the list of items to find on Friday evening around 6:30 at the gaming registration table in Track29. All finds are due by noon on Sunday with prizes to be awarded soon thereafter.
Traveller with John Watts
John is the owner and president of Gypsy Knights Games, a third party small press publisher creating supplements for the Traveller role-playing game.
John will be returning to the Traveller Car (AKA the Ameerican Car) once again to run three sessions of new Traveller adventures using scenarios from his books. There will be one session on Friday and two on Saturday.
Redemption in the Making
– (Friday evening) The crew of the MV Tiamat, well-known as “problem solvers”, have been approached by a woman who wishes to clear her husband’s name. It would seem that her husband had been a pirate for a short time and stole a large sum of money. She wants the characters to help her locate the money, return it to the owners and clear her husband’s name. Can the characters help her?
Futility and Hubris
– (Saturday afternoon) The crew of the MV Tiamat, well-known as “problem solvers”, have been hired by a small company to hunt down a man who has stolen some valuable property. This thief has boarded a cruise ship heading out of the system. The company wants to put the characters on board the cruise ship to monitor and then capture this thief and recover the stolen property. Other than that, it should be a peaceful cruise. Are the characters up for it?
On the Master’s Trail
– (Saturday evening) The characters have been approached by a man named Andrew Maitland. Maitland will explain that they are members of a new religion, the Obedient, who show their devotion to the Great Master by enduring not only enforced hardship but also by remaining solitary. These seven men, along with five others and members of their family, have an unarmed Atlas-class freighter named The Master’s Trail which they are using as a colony vessel. The Obedient have chosen an uninhabited world in the CXD-305 system for their new home. However, the route is filled with all manner of dangers. Can the characters protect the colonists?

The Chattacon Friendly Snowball Fight to the Death
Winter is upon us! So it is time for JoeDog to pop out and start a Snowball Fight. Competitors will stand back to back, take 5 steps, turn and throw a foam “snowball” at their opponent. If you get hit, you’re out! Awards will be given to the top 3 winners. If you don’t want to play this is a fantastic spectator event, so you don’t want to miss it!
Cool Mini or Not
Members of CMOT’s Legion will be on hand to demo all of Cool Mini or Not’s games. Blood Rage is one of CMON’s latest releases and if you enjoy any aspect of Norse mythology you must sit down for a game. If Vikings aren’t your thing, make sure you stop by and play some Zombicide or any of the other fantastic CMON releases!
Aaron Morgan again will handle all activities for this long-lived superhero clickable miniatures game. HeroClix is super easy to learn and is great fun to play. Stop by on Saturday afternoon and see how it all works!
