Tales from AnCon

This was my first year at AnCon.  Keeping that in mind I scheduled events  with no expectations.  When I showed up in Hudson I was not overly surprised by the  number of people at the show.  What I was surprised at was running an event almost immediately.  As it turns out our event success rate was about as high as Origins.  Considering the difference in the size of the show I consider 5 new players  (the same number we had at Origins) huge success.

I have already emailed the players thanked them for playing, they made our experience a success.  I would also like to extend a thanks to the crew of MTSB gaming for running the con.

I had a blast at this show I even played some games.  I role played the part of Batman and made him say “yo”.  I wish I would have made him say “Semper Fi”.  Something makes me think Batman would be an awesome marine, even if he isn’t very gung-ho.   It was my first Mutants and Masterminds experience.  I am ready for more.   Batman and Green Arrow were well um almost juvenile in this adventure.  While Superman and Wonder Woman were a little more serious than we were.  Even if I had no idea I was butchering persona of Batman, I had fun.  I am even looking forward to collecting comics again sometime in the near future.

I even played a miniatures game, House Tek.  Well Table Tek really uses action figures.  That is right action figures.  It is a homebrew set of rules that uses everything in the house as terrain.  Every mini player should buy this game just to show their spouse there is a bright side to our little men.  All joking aside, it is a really good game.  I had a blast flying right down the middle on a suicide run, that didn’t even kill me right away.  I did kind of make my team mates disgruntled by my aggressive move.

I also wanted to take the time to thank Dave Cook for creating Heebie Jeebies.  It is a great new, not yet released, party game that makes people squirm.   Think about it, what gives you the heebie jeebies?  I am sure it is in the game.  If not visit the kickstarter and email Dave your idea.

We are already making plans for next year, you better be there.

WizKids/Neca Align with Gale Force Nine to Create the Supremacy League

Dec 232011

HeroClix Supremacy League System is a focal point for organized play at the retail store level. The league serves to give a loose format to open play in stores without placing undue restrictions or requirements on participants. It supports a casual format of organized play that can supplement a store’s tournament events, and helps to create excitement in-store for ongoing play throughout the week.

Record keeping is done entirely on the board, making it a breeze to run at the store level and minimizing the effort needed to implement it. It also serves as a focal point in the store, creating excitement for new players and long time players alike!




The board includes five of the Convention Prize Exclusive Figures from 2011 – one copy each of Ms Marvel LE, DC Wonder Woman LE, and three Horsemen of the Apocalypse LE figures (one of each!). The figure value alone makes the kit a bargain, and the power of the board to pull players into the store will pay off dividends for a long time to

come as players make purchases!

The HeroClix Supremacy League System is expected to begin shipping in the first week of January. Some minor assembly is required.


This sounds like a great way to push casual play.   A league that runs during regular events – so it doesn’t interfere with the games the players already planned on.  plus it has great prizes to boot.   We will try and get a better scoop on this from Alliance.
