Historicon Pre-registration Info for Khartoum! The War Game


The Battle of Abu Klea

Historicon will be releasing the Preliminary Events List ("PEL") later this week and I now have the time slots and event sign up numbers for all of my games at this year's Historicon convention.

I will be running the "Khartoum! The War Game" game three times and the Battle of Abu Klea once. With 12 player slots for each Khartoum game and 10 for Abu Klea, that works out to a total of 46 possible player slots that you can fill if you want to sign up for any of these games. I would suggest pre-registering for one (or more) of these games ahead of time to ensure that you will reserve a seat at the table for your game. All three of the games that I hosted at this year's Little Wars convention sold out quickly, so once the pre-registration is open, go for it!

Here are the game times and identification numbers for each game:


T10:242  Khartoum! The War Game at 10:00 AM - 12 players


F10:243  Khartoum! The War Game at 10:00 AM - 12 players

F19:574  Save Gordon! The Battle of Abu Klea at 7:00 PM - 10 players


S14:244  Khartoum! The War Game at 2:00 PM - 12 players

When you preregister for the game, enter the game number (for example, T10:242 for the Thursday game) when you sign up for the game. You are allowed to sign up for multiple games so it is possible for one to play in all four games if you can beat the crowd.

I am looking forward to hosting these games and to meeting all of the well wishers and blog followers who have been following the progress of this game journey over the past 12 months.


  1. Looks splendid Jim, and sorry I cannot be there. One day …..?

  2. I'm signed up for Friday's 10 AM game!
