Kids Games
We are offering a series of games where younger players are especially encouraged to attend. If this frees up mom or dad to play in another game, great! We’re asking that you exercise proper parental judgment as to whether your kid is old/mature enough to be participating without your supervision. This is not intended to be Day Care.  That being said, here is the list of Kid’s games:

Battleground: Fantasy & Historical Warfare
Battleground: F/HW is an excellent miniatures game, disguised as a card game.  There are no figures to buy or paint; you can fit a whole army in your pocket.  This is NOT a “collectible card game”, where you buy many packs to get a bunch of rare cards to pump up your hand. These events have grown in popularity each year at Council, and we’re developing a reputation for one of the biggest and best Battleground cons. We’ve even got guys driving in from all over the Northeast to play at Council weekend.  Please stop by the Battleground table any time during the weekend to play a demo game.  Or, try one of these more formal events:

BFW * Seige of Hawkshold * Battleground: Fantasy Warfare
A-Minis-4 * Battleground: Fantasy Warfare Open Play * Battleground: Fantasy Warfare



The Council Wargame Room
We're setting aside a special room upstairs where the Council Grognards can sit and play their wargames in peace.  No kids games and no Euro games allowed in this room. We started this tradition last year. Help us keep it going, if these kinds of games appeal to you.
