INsurgency IN INdianapolis


On Thursday August 1, 2019 in Indianapolis, wargamers from around the world will meet to share stories and play wargames.  It will be a friendly insurgency as we all seek to squeeze a little wargame out of the world’s largest game convention!

After prolonged negotiation with Jeff Dreher, Gen Con has agreed to allow us to gather en masse in the Gen Con Games Library.  They have invited us to make some table markers so be on the look out.  Set aside your entire Thursday (if you can) and we will wargame likes it 1999.

Be sure to buy tickets to use for the library as it is about $2 for 4 hours in predetermined blocks.  We plan to start at 8:00 to maximize the wargame goodness and will be there all day.

Travis Crowe created a geeklist (BGG) to allow us to schedule games all weekend!

Harold is responsible for securing some sweet giveaways to players present at set times. Expect to see one or two of his games and some other COIN goodness. More to follow but thanks in advance to these sponsors!


The great Rodger B MacGowan has prepared tee for the event and the guys at The Players’ Aid (Alexander and Grant) are printing them, If you are interested in buying one, please contact them at  Price will depend on volume but will be as low as we can make it.  Here is a pic of a draft design from RBM.

Otherwise, we are encouraging everyone to wear a blue shirt (so no one gets lost!)

Share your email to be added to email notifications.  We will also open a BGG site for players to promote wargames they want to play at Gen Con. Stay tuned for more.  Questions to @haroldbuchanan2 on Twitter or hankhankhank on BGG.

Remember what Ben Franklin said in 1776: “We must all hang together or most assuredly we will all hang separately”. See you on Thursday August 1 ( and after!)
