HuskyCon : Emmanuel du Pontavice Second

The HuskyCon took place the week after the WorldDipCon. It was a great event. During the weekend, we played to diplomacy, but to other game too (like Ticket to Ride, War in Terror (hope that is the good name), Imperial, Magnacarta...). Some people decided to go to swimm in the sea and it was a very good moment. But probably, the best moment was each lunch!! Good Food! Good vine! How to explain??? Come the next year to discover that!.
35 players participated to the tournament and 13 boards were played. David Malestky won the tournament with a lot of points, followed by Emmanuel du Pontavice and Christopher Mann. David Norman finished at the 6th place.

Danish NDC : October 18-21

The convention hosting the GP is Hyggecon in Hobro (no homepage yet), on the 18.- 21. oktober. The timeschedule will be something like this:
Thursday: Round one
Friday late evening: Round two
Saturday day: Round three
Saturday evening: Banquet (great food, dancing, girls in fancy dresses...)
Sunday day: Round four, and then awards

Hyggecon was originally a larp-convention, but in the recent years rpg, warhammer battle and boardgames have been a part of the convention.
Hyggecon takes place in Østerskov Efterskole there is a very special boardingschool. It its probably the only school (in the world?), where we use gaming (larp, rpg, card and boardgames) as the fundamental educational tool.
Bonus: I have been in contact with VikingCon in Copenhagen. And we have planned a round zero on that convention. Se the schedule for VC on their website when ready.
On the final note, I can say I have made a danish website, where news about the grand prix and Diplomacy in Denmark will be postet.
