CaptainCon Gaming Convention up on Kickstarter
CaptainCon is a 3-day gaming convention that will be held in Taunton, Mass., in July (from the 17-19th). They’re up on Kickstarter partly to raise funds, and party lust as a pre-registration system for the event. If you’re planning on attending, head on over to the campaign and get your badge, plus some extras (when they meet some stretch goals). The convention is being run by the New England Privateers.
The campaign is set to run for another 26 days.
From the campaign:
CaptainCon 2015 will take place Friday, July 17 through Sunday, July 19 in Taunton, Massachusetts – midway between Boston and the Rhode Island border. Last year was a massive success thanks to our Kickstarter backers and all the people who attended, so we’ve gotten ourselves a bigger pirate ship with over 9,000 square feet (that’s the entire second floor for those who were with us in 2014) of gaming space available around the clock. That’s allowed us to make a number of improvements based on your feedback from last year including adding even more gaming tables, increasing the aisle space between table rows, and adding more room to stash bags and things. We’ve added dedicated space for role playing games and more vendors with great products to give you even more options at CaptainCon 2015.
We hope you’ll join our fleet as we journey to exciting new places. Our mission is to bring you the best gaming experiences available at a reasonable cost with as few restrictions as possible. Our vision is playing what you want, when you want, in a fun and engaging atmosphere with great people. With your support we’ll provide:
A single convention badge price – no tickets for individual events
24 hour access to the convention’s game space
The Captain’s Log achievement system that rewards you with prizes just for participating in fun stuff
A robust schedule of well-organized competitive miniatures games tournaments
Plenty of table space for casual miniatures, board, card, and role playing games
A demo area where you can learn and try new games with the coaching of experienced players
A dedicated hobby area where you can assemble or paint models (we’ll supply the paint and brushes) and socialize
An entire weekend of meeting new friends, hanging out, enjoying games, memorable conversations and having fun with an amazing group of great people
