Ross MacFarlane has returned to his home in Nova Scotia after spending the weekend with us at Huzzah! You can read about his games and thoughts on the convention in his latest blog post.
The hall is empty and everyone has gone home but it was another great year at Huzzah! We enjoyed three fabulous days of gaming with friends, and all the fun that goes with it. Thanks to everyone for their contribution, no matter how big or how small, they all added up to an exceptional time. Enjoy your much deserved rest, and then we’ll begin talking about next year!
Here is a link to photos of the convention.
Yes, there is always a flea market at Huzzah! It’s more like a bazaar actually. Any paid attendee is welcome to grab a table and set up, starting at about 10:30AM Sunday morning. There is no additional fee. You may have to share a table, and you are certainly responsible for your own products and table watching. [Read more...]

The board game room will be in full swing this year with more than twice as many scheduled games over last year. Every table has been pre-scheduled for Friday and Saturday with some tables open for pickup games on Sunday.
Not only will there be many great Euro, strategy and thematic games, but several notable historically-based board games as well: A wood-block edition of Avalon Hill’s Advanced Civilization, the hard to find Axis & Allies: Anniversary Edition, and the recently released Guns of Gettysburg: Anniversary Edition by Bowen Simmons, the creator of Napoleon’s Triumph.
