The dates for KanataKon have been chosen. The venue is booked. It will be the same as last year (2018).
see the site for more detail
http://www.kanataboardgamers.ca/kanata-con-2019.html

last year we had 20 people at peak. This year maybe more.

plenty of notice if you would like to come and join us for 4 full days of 18xx gaming

This year there will be some newer games to play. I will have 1822MX (Mexico) and 1848(USWest), 1841, and 1837. As well as 1822/1822CA (and their scenarios), OE, 18USA, and the rest of my collection.

Jonathan has 18TT which has been tested a few times during club night which i am sure he will bring out and want to play.

Bob

I'd be interested in 1832 and 1841 from your collection. Other games I'd like to play would be 1844, 1880, 1870/18??, and 1828.

I actually have 1844/54, 70 (with ??) and my mediocre PNP of 28 that I can bring. If you want a better version of 28 feel free to bring yours.

I'm up for '37 anytime, I think I can probably even teach it after 3 plays. Would 'GB be appropriate length and complexity for learning at at convention? Interested in trying that one out - sounds like it bends the brain a little though.

Wondering if an 1825 day would be on the cards. I think Bob has most of them here but not sure if that is the right time to play them or they require a more dedicated space and time.

1825 when played with all units is a large and lengthy game

I'm up to play anything but I'd like to get an 18Ireland game in at some point. I'll bring 1883 and 18Scan. I can teach and am super happy to play either (both best at 3 players, 18Scan takes 3 hours tops so a good one for the end of the day).

I'm also planning on being there all 4 days this year.

And just like that, 4 days of gaming hope is crushed.

I'm in Toronto those 4 days.

That sucks.

If I'm getting a long 18xx game in, I'd like to try 1831 at some point.

Guess that means I'll have to brush up on my 18Ireland.

I'm going. I
ll bring Steam Over Holland and 1865 if someone wants to give it a try. I'm pleased with the variants I've come up with for it.

I'll be there to play mostly 18xx.

I'd be up for joining a game of 18OE if there's enough interest, but would prefer to play a scenario instead of the full game.

If someone is bringing 1880, would really like to try it as well.

I'm happy to bring games from my collection as well.
