CharCon returns this year earlier than in the past. Leaving its date in October it this Friday July 21st to Sunday July 23rd. It has also moved from the Civic Center to the Clay Center in Charleston. Still the same old CharCon though.
This year’s games will include miniatures games of Aerodrome, Kings of War tournament, Tech Commander, Battletech, Warmachine/Hordes, Sailpower; a series of social deduction games like Werewolf and Resistant; board games Agricola, Pandemic Survival, Mystic Vale tournament, live action Red Dragon Inn, a Catan National Qualifier, a bunch of Play to Win games, and more; a series of Family Games on Sunday; RPGs from Pathfinder Society, SPARKS, Star Trek Adventures, Dungeon Dragons Adventures, Call of Cthulhu, Ponyfinder, and Metal, Magic, and Lore.
Non gaming events scheduled are a Quick Draw with JR Earls, a Sci-Fi Sing Along, the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator, a murder mystery game, a game show, Junior Ghostbuster Training, panels, attendee swap meet on Sunday, a Paint and Take, and the CharCon Raffle. The con is trying to do a lot with cosplay this year as well. Besides their Cosplay Contests for adults on Saturday and kids on Sunday, they will be filming a cosplay video, holding photo shoots, a cosplay panel by Bunny Bombshell, a mermaid swim, the Mandolorian Mercs and Ghostbusters will be set up, and their only announced guest is cosplayer John Clark from Galaxy Productions.
Charcon After Dark will be going are at near by bars both Friday and Saturday night.
There will be reps from Portal Games, Mr. B Games. Vendors and exhibitors at the con will be selling all kinds of board, card, collectible, miniature games and gaming accessories, plus comics, art, dice, t-shirts, and more.
Admission for the weekend is $40, $30 for Friday or Sunday, and $25 for Saturday only passes. Children twelve and under can get in for $20 for the weekend or $10 for a single day. Non-gaming passes are available for $10 per day.
The con has a nice line up of gaming for all. I say any gamers out there can find something to do. There is also plenty for cosplayers.
