NatCon 2015 at James Cook

This Easter NatCon was run in Auckland and ACG Club had the privilege to host 9 systems and a whole lot of board gamers over 3 sumptuous days. That's some serious gaming in anyone's terms and it was glorious. There were travelers from as far as Australia and many of New Zealand's top gamers gathered to compete in one of the oldest established tournaments in the country. The venue was massive and even with 130+ gathered over the weekend there was still a huge amount of space left if we want to expand on the competition next time.

Competitions held over the weekend were : Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40K, Fields of Glory Napoleonic, Fields of Glory AM, Flames of War, De Bellis Renationis, De Bellis Multitudinis, DBA, and X-Wing Miniatures.

Some of the Historical players prepare to get underway.
The hall hums with many games on the first day.

Here's some of the Photo's of the competition winners. 
I'll have more once the Photographers send me their pics.
