Interview on The Gaming Gang More Vul-Con Arena II Coverage

Vul-Con Co-Consuls Rick and Jay had the pleasure of being interviewed last weekend by Elliott and Jeff of The Gaming Gang. If you're not familiar with their site, you should really check it out. They cover the full gamut of the Strategy Gaming Hobby in articles, reviews, sneak peeks, blog posts, podcasts, and more. Shoot over to for the latest in gaming news, reviews, and some of the best gaming opinion columns we've had the pleasure to read. Oh yeah, don't forget to check out the interview with Rick and Jay while you're there (click here to link directly).

We promised more pictures of Vul-Con Arena II, and you'll find them below.  Before returning to photos, there are some folks we owe thanks for the success of the event.

First off we'd really like to thank Darren and Aaron of Imperial Outpost Games/ManaWerx for hosting Vul-Con Arena II.  Not only is their newly remodeled double-store phenomenal, these two gentlemen had a huge hand in making Arena II the great success that it was. We truly appreciate their support and friendship.

We'd also like to give another shout of thanks to Andrea Angiolino for being our first virtual guest.  The Skype interview is in the works for posting, and all involved had a great time. We're looking forward to having Mr. Angiolino as a virtual guest at the full convention, Phoenix Vul-Con 2012, next February.

To our Senators, we just want to let you know that we haven't forgotten that none of this works without you. You give up your time and opportunity to game, so that others have an excellent experience and that is a most noble endeavor. This is one of the reasons we've started a separate raffle of prizes for Senators at Arena II. We'll continue that and more Senator perks and benefits are forthcoming.

To our Citizens, thank you so much for attending. Without you playing the games there would be no point to any of this. Our goal is always that you have a great time, and it certainly looked like you did at Arena II. Don't forget to take advantage of opportunities to pre-register in the future, as it gives you a chance to provide input prior to the event. The earlier you pre-register, the more likely we will be able to make certain we have the games and tournaments you desire.

Thanks to everyone who came and had a great time.  As promised, here are more pics:

100+ Into the Breach - Vul-Con Arena II

Vul-Con Arena II held on Saturday June 16th at Imperial Outpost Games/ManaWerx was a day of firsts:

More Arena II wrap-up is forthcoming and more pictures will join the ones below:

Looking into the Imperial Outpost Side in the AM - Note the Hippodrome

Savage Mars was a huge hit and ended up running groups the entire day

The quonset hut was section was the backdrop for Wings of War: The Dawn of WWII and Dust Tactics

Looking into the Back Half of the ManaWerx side in the AM (the front half housed more RPGs and Board Games)

Showdown at Salt River Canyon was so popular it ran a second time by player request


In a few turns the armored, genetically altered Gorilla will turn on the girl in the tank top, in an attack that will go horribly wrong
