Historicon Day2: Hail Caesar At the Con
I was pleased with how the games played as they both went down to the wire and all the participants seemed to be having a great time.
I may run another game tonight - it depends on how much energy I have to set the whole thing up again!
It is both rewarding and fun to be a game master at these events but today I think I'll just go out and play somebody else's game!
I was surprised that I was the only person running Hail Caesar games at Historicon again this year. The ruleset is very well suited for convention gaming as they can be simplified and are easy to teach. There was a good bit of Ancients gaming going on but it seemed to be mostly tournament focused using older rules sets. While Hail Caesar is a great game, it does require a good bit of judgement in rule application and isn't really a good fit for the tournament gaming set.
