Williamsburg Muster is one of our favorite little cons.
It, and it's sister con Guns of August, are hosted by the fabulous folks of the Hampton Roads Wargamers in February and August every year.
Held at the oh so lovely Holiday Inn Patriot, the con sports a bevy of board games, historical wargames, Warhammer Fantasy and of course our very own Flames of War tournament. This year, the I-95 guys battled through illness to bring us a 1500 point early war tournament.
The tournament sported 22 players, with one coming from as far as Danbury, CT. Each of the major early war books was represented and there was even a Dutch PDF list! In the end there were three, after an epic round 3 showdown between Dirty Jon and Stevie Mac, where only one could come out victorious, Dirty Jon Baber won the day with his Confident Vet German Panzer Companie. Rounding out the top three were Jeff Knoke at number 2 with Fallschirmjagers from Burning Empires and Sean "Throckmorton" Sarah with 3rd Sensha Rentai from Rising Sun.
But that wasn't the only fun the team had. Friday Dirty Jon hosted a Netrunner tournament and Saturday after the Flames tournament Steve hosted a Lord of the Rings gaming night for 17 folks with raffle prizes. Of course, there's a ton of pick up games, board games and all the other great gaming fun we've come to expect from this great little convention.
