This weekend I went to my first virtual wargame convention.
San Diego History Con moved their convention online last time due to covid concerns, and decided to do the same this fall. I'm so glad they did.
I live in Calgary. We have a great general game convention here, but there's not a lot for wargamers. And given how spread out cities are on the prairies, driving elsewhere isn't much of an option. Even driving to the US is out- the nearest state is Montana. We have more people in my city than Montana in its borders. So the wargame convention scene for me is pretty bald. When SDHistCon went online last year and I read some writeups of all the cool things that happened, I really hoped they'd not abandon the online format.
