One of the HAWKs is the faculty mentor for the Harford Community College gaming club. That club runs a gaming day every year, called HARCON. The HAWKs have supported HARCON for years with games. This is a small, multi-genre event, so we found years ago, that we are unlikely to get someone to devote four hours to a miniatures game, but they are willing to give it a try for an hour or two.
For the past three years, we have been running a really large game that allows passers by to participate for an hour or two. We have en0ugh of our own HAWKs around the table to act as opponents and keep the game moving.
This year’s theme at HARCON was Steam Punk, so we decided to run a large GASLIGHT game set on Mars with many different factions.
Though attendance at HARCON seemed to be a little light, the game was fun and successful. We introduced six new people to miniatures gaming.
