We had a chance to check out Stratigicon‘s first event of the year, Orccon, last President’s day weekend. If you’re not in the know on southern California tabletop events, there aren’t a lot of them, but ones we can count on every year are part of the Stratigicon lineup.
Live variously through us as we share some of the interesting games, art and people that stood out to us this year.
Warning: photo-heavy post ahead!
The new werewolf party card game, Growl! I love playing our prototype of this game, and it keeps getting better. Check out our review of Growl.
Obscure Reference Games was present, showing off Overlords of Infamy. Go, evil corgi Waffles! I mean, who doesn’t want to take over the land?
Magic Meeple Games brought the wizardry spirit!
Darkrock Ventures, a mining and worker placement game by Magic Meeple Games.
Sentient Cow Games was in the house, offering demos of their Kickstarter game, Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce. It’s a quirky dungeon crawler featuring a multi-level dungeon. Yes, there is a sentient, two-headed cow.
Filibuster, one of few political themed games I like!
Dungeon Brawl, a deck-builder fighting game, comes to Kickstarter on March 30.
Merchant Green Leather Works shared their custom and pre-made leather gaming accessories.
The miniatures gaming section was strong, too. Take this set-up of Relic Worlds Showdown. I love how they used fish tank decor as landscape!
There was a massive battle underway on these tables!
Awesome miniatures from Mythic Battles Pantheon by Mythic Games. All of these miniatures are Greek gods, goddesses, creatures and heroes from myths!
