The Mighty Dungeons and Donuts are going to be running a Shadespire competition at Knavecon.  If you don’t know what that is, you can stop now.  (I never played it either but I’m compelled to keep typing).

If you ARE a player here’s the deal…

SHADESPIRE AT KNAVECON: Entry will be €10 at the Dungeons and Donuts booth. We will play 3 rounds of Swiss pairings and then cut to top 2/4 depending on numbers. The player with the most glory points at the end of the Game will be the winner, each match will be best out of three games. The winner of the match will receives 3 pts and 1 pt each in case of a draw. Rounds will be based on swiss pairings. You are allowed switch war bands between match’s but not between games. We will have promo cards, tokens and vouchers for the winners and the two finalists will get a first round bye at our shadespire grand tournament in April where you have a chance to win the Amazing shade glass trophy and other amazing promos. **Players must bring the following:, Warband, decks, game board, dice and tokens

I had the pleasure of talking to the guys from Backspindle games recently.  These are the guys famous for such games as

  • Luchador
  • Dance of the Fireflys
  • Clacks (based on the discworld novel going postal)
  • Codinca

Sir Terry Pratchett chats with Backspindle Boys, Leonard Boyd and David Brashaw

Their latest game MourneQuest is starting on Kickstarter now and is already nearly 100% funded after 1 day!

Backspindle are good friends to Knavecon and I recommend you check out their stuff, They’re an Irish Company, doing their thing and living the dream

Huzzah!

Knavecon Diplomacy #3 Fall 1901

2

So the lines are drawn.

Austria and Turkey team up to keep Austria afloat.

France & Austria help Germany stick the jack boot into Italy.

France and England hoover up a few easy spots.

Everyone benefited except for Italy.  Builds next !

Knavecon Diplomacy #3 – Spring 1901

1901spring

Interesting first move, France and England seem to be getting along.  Russia and Turkey go dancing in the black sea.  Italy digs in and looks for some new spots too.  Germany puts a cat among the pigeons.  Austria is lully everyone in a false sense of security.  Turn 2 will tell a lot

Huzzah!

Knavecon Diplomacy #3

Well it’s probably number 3, not 100% sure, but I’ll pretend it is and no-one will know the difference.

SPRING! is a time for all good dictators to start taking over Europe in 1900. Winter’s good too as is autumn and summer, but before the next Knavecon rolls around some new and some not so new players will have been baptised (extruded, tortured, masticated and spat out) in fire in the greatest of all games.  Diplomacy!

struggle

Here’s the teams

Russia = Leon Kelly (1st game)
Turkey = Eoghan O’Sullivan
France = Barry O’Brien (1st game)
Austria = Black Martin (2nd game)
Italy = Ballina Denis (1st game)
England = Vic (may have played before)
Germany = Earle Flynn (2nd game)

So a lot of new faces and a lot of fresh souls. I almost feel sorry for them….. yeah

Orders will be in soon and let’s see how it rocks out.

Huzzah!

Rules, OK ?

Knavecon 11 will be here in a months time.  One of the things I love about big gaming sessions is learning a new set of game rules.  I strongly believe there is no faster way to learn rules than have them explained by someone who knows the game and is willing to teach you (and beat you soundly).  As a group we have a considerably amount of rules knowledge in our collective skulls.  So before Knavecon rolls around let me know what games you would like to learn on the day and I’ll see if I can hook you up with an expert.

Huzzah!
