A quick heads up on a few changes for Kapcon this year. There will of course be a bunch of smaller changes that don't need to be mentioned.

After a large amount of feedback on the issue last year, Round Three is back to a full three hour slot, 17:00 - 20:00. We realise this isn't ideal. Anyone willing to make allowances for their game to only run two and a half hours in this round to help those who want a bit longer to prepare for the LARP is appreciated.

The removal of the game spiel before each round eased time pressure on games last year. This year we will also be dropping the GM herding of their players. Lists of players for each game will be put up on the notice boards in between rounds, people will just need to check these and head straight to their games after announcements.

As an added incentive for those who run games, this year we will be trialling giving a preferential game pick to a GM for each round they run.

The cafe this year will have muesli bars for those wanting a healthier option. We will also be bringing along a plunger for the coffee connoisseurs.

For those who rely on the game blurbs to sell their game, my suggestion is video your spiel and throw it up on YouTube. You can then put a link to the video in your game description on the Kapcon website.

You might what to change this on the Timetable page. At the moment it still shows the reduced 2.5 hour slot.

Cheers.

If anyone's interested, the game I'm running "The Book Club" is third round and will probably be about two hours. [waves to Larpers]

Will there be a food run in the evenings? Pizza's?

Will there be a stall from the local gaming store on site?

Based on past years, no. There are no kitchen facilities on site.

There will be a dinner order both days. I have considered a few different options but it will likely be pizza again this year. I will confirm this next week.

Wargames Supplies will again be at Kapcon with a stall on both days.
