This past Saturday morning, June 11th, a couple of HAWKs and I headed north to New Jersey Con. After an unexpected tour of Trenton, we arrived at the convention site around 10 am – missing out on the morning session of games. But it gave me time to check out the Bring and Buy as well as the dealers.
|The Bring and Buy room – small but packed with stuff for sale|
|One half of the dealer area – Age of Glory is way back in the corner|
Dennis from OMM was playing in the ADLG ancients tournament, so they allowed him to play his games in front of his vendor area while the other games were back in the tournament area. There were 14 ADLG players.

There were 6 tables for the FoW tournament with 12 players (I think). There was also a small Bolt Action tournament set-up in one of the small side areas that looked like it had 6 players.

|Geoff’s Lego Pirate game|
|Regimental Fire and Fury|
|A Disposable Heroes Game|
|Battle of Albuera|
|Duncan checking out Howard Whitehouse’s Flint and Feathers game|
|A large Fields of Glory game|
|Great looking fort – too bad it was just scenery – it played no part in the game|
|Bruce and Dave getting ready to discover that Fields of Glory bogs down once battle lines collide|
Unfortunately, the game I wanted to get in at 2 pm was full – so I didn’t get a chance to play anything. I did have a chance to play in a WWI naval game but preferred to just bang my head against a wall instead of playing – it was more enjoyable.
But I was able to chat with several friends – John from West Point, Mike from Boston, Jim from NYC, Joe from Delaware, Steve from Age of Glory, talked about ADLG with Don M., …..I also made a few purchases. Overall, I had a good time.
The NJCon staff thanked the HAWKS for attending and running games. Hopefully they will be coming back to Barrage again.
