This weekend was Carronade, in our home town of Falkirk.
Run by Falkirk District Wargames Club, Carronade is something of a hidden gem in the convention calendar, and we love exhibiting. Lots of people, loads of participation games, and lots of traders. It’s a great place to catch up with friends from across Scotland and the North of England.
This year we had a 12 foot booth, rather than our previous 6 – space at Carronade is always at a premium, but the organisers were kind enough to find us that extra bit of space this year! And we needed it!
Carronade is a Wargames show, so we always moderate our expectations as mostly a role-playing game publisher. But surprisingly, the big seller of the show for us was Maskwitches of Forgotten Doggerland. Our new Maskwitches banner sure is an eye-catcher, and people were interested to learn more about this weird-sounding game. And of course we were happy to tell them all about it.
Carronade also provided us with a dry un fro UK Games Expo in 3 weeks time. And our brand-new catalogues proved their worth. We’ve always had flyers on the booth to take away, but these mini-booklets are really attractive! You’ll know if you order from our web store you get flyers and stickers – well now you’ll get one of our catalogues. Nice.
Another great Carronade, another great year, and it was good to be back. We’re already looking forward to next year!
