You put me first.  I'm not sure how I feel about that or the fact that I didn't talk about Kriegspiel.

They ordered me not to talk about Kriegspiel.  :hide:

First rule of Kriesgspiel is, you don't talk about Kriegspiel.

I watched the video, but I'm not clear how many people were in the big Kriegsspiel game :P

I believe everyone but me.

Speaking of Kriegspiel, I was told there was going to be an online one starting up... has that happened and I completely missed it (which is likely)?

They're regrouping from the last 18 month online Kriegsspiel ;)

Speaking of which, BC, could you fire an e-mail to that address so I have your contact information there?

Thanks,

Never saw a follow-up but I'm sure there are privacy laws at play

I hope not.  If there was a participant who ends up being sanctioned for horrible behavior towards con participants then the name should be public.  If it is not public, then the same behavior will be seen at other conventions.
