JunaCon III details anounced

This year, we’re on a boat!

JunaCon III is going the non-traditional route, and will be held at S/S Bore, Turku’s newest and hottest venue for train boardgaming this year. We can now confirm that on the weekend of March 24-25 Turku will be filled with the happy cries of Age of Steamers, the witty banter of Ticket to Riders and the stoic thinking of 18XXers.

The Ticket to Ride tournament is happening again this year, in a much more quick (and unforgiving) knock-out format, as long as enough players sign up.

We’ll have more news as they happen, but feel free to comment or contact us with questions.

JunaCon II – Day 2

Day 2 of our little event has come and passed, closing it in a great way. There was the Ticket to Ride tournament, in which 16 people competed, with Tommi Lantta being the winner for the 2nd time in a row. Congratulations Tommi, and thank you to all who participated!!!

Today there was also some other Ticket to Ride games being played, including the new Alvin & Dexter expansion. On the heavier side of things, some more 18XX was played, in addition to a variety of other games, ranging from Von Kapf bis Kairo to On The Underground and more.

In all, 46 people attended JunaCon II, which was slightly more than JunaCon I. There was also a small monetary profit, which will be donated to the Suomen Lautapeliseura (the Finnish board game society). We hope everyone had a good time, and we would like to welcome you back again for JunaCon III, tentatively due to be held sometime in February-March 2012.

From the organisers, and the Stoori game club, a warm and sincere thank you!
Aleksi, Antti, Jari, Mikko, Teppo & Iraklis
