June 8-9, 2019
Gruenhagen Conference Center, UW-Oshkosh
Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Come visit your Uncle Atom and play all kinds of fun tabletop wargames! Not a tournament-based event, but an event to learn new games, play fun multiplayer wargames, meet like-minded players, and learn new things.

During this second annual event, you’ll be able to play miniatures games and demos, home-brewed rules, narrative games, and more. There’ll be some teaching seminars, too!

The event is held on the campus of the University Wisconsin Oshkosh and there’s plenty of restaurants and bars right across the street for your enjoyment. There will probably be some activities after the game hall closes on Saturday night.

Saturday badge: $8, Sunday badge: $5, Weekend badge: $12 (you save a dollar!)

SCHEDULE

++SATURDAY++

Event Title: Shattered Crown
When: Saturday, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Game System: G.A.U.R.D.S. General Assembly Rules Data System
Description: The Martian War was a spitting contest compared to what was to come. It could have been much worse for humanity. Imagine if the US and Britain hadn’t come to agreements after the fall of the Martians before V-M Day: bickering among the Russian powers tied up vital supplies and treaties hindered tech exchanges; Germany and Italy have split; European politics would create their own new enemies in the Prussian Empire; Emperor Hirohito will not be caught between China and Russia, two warring nations; and Japan will never surrender her Manchurian territory on the eve of recurring hostilities between the two powers. World War I looks like it is about to begin.

GAMEMASTER SIGN-UP

This event is known as an ‘expo’ because there won’t be any tournaments. We’re looking for people to run tabletop wargaming demos, fun multiplayer events, ‘homebuilt’ rules systems, playtests, and things of that nature. If you run an event or events for at least four hours, your weekend badge fee will be waived. Table space will be 60 inches by six feet.

Please fill out the form below with your event (if you’d like to run multiple events, please fill out a separate form for each) and if you have any questions, please let me know via email at atom@tabletopminions.org and I’ll get you sorted.

HOUSING

There’s great, reasonably priced dorm-style housing available right upstairs from the game room. Rooms include two twin beds, a dresser, two closets, microwave, refrigerator, air conditioning, and towel sets and run just $40 per night. Call 920-424-1106 for reservations.

VENDORS

To vendors:
We’re accepting vendors for the event. Right up front: this event is pretty small and intimate, and we really only want vendors who are game manufacturers, publishers, and designers or vendors who make products for tabletop wargaming (terrain, models, templates, accessories, etc.) as well. A single six-foot table is $30 for the weekend and includes two vendor badges. Please email me at atom@tabletopminions.org if you’re interested or have questions.

MAP & LOCATION

The event will be on the UW Oshkosh campus at the Gruenhagen Conference Center, 208 Osceola Street, Oshkosh, WI 54901. Check it out here on Google Maps.
