The redoubtable Battlefields will be making its... I'm actually not sure how many times they've held Battlefields. It's been around since I can first remember going to cons in middle school. But at any rate, it'll likely fill the hall with games like last year. I'm not sure if we'll be running a game yet, but I'm sure Anton will update this as soon as he's sure he can!

As noted by our friend and contributor Gary, we have WinterCon at the wonderful facilities at Oakland University! Much like Flintcon, it will be supporting not only miniature wargaming but roleplaying and board games, with a good portion dedicated to classic railroad games like Ticket to Ride and the 18XX series.
