one somewhat close to your neck of the woods, Hammercon - in hamilton ontario. this will be its 2nd year, its 100% gaming. about 100 attendees showed up last year, expecting the same this year, if not a bit more.

Cheers,

one of the best campaigns I ever ran with with the Conspiracy-X game - loads of fun.

fast, simple "modern" type game.

I certainly got my monies worth from that book.
