Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, actual live conventions are impossible. Fortunately, event organizers and publishers have teamed up and created several online events. One of these was Castle TriCon, a convention normally held at a different German castle ech year. This time, the organizers Horrible Guild, Heidelbär and CGE have built a virtual world in which visitors could walk, run and even FLY around, and take part in demos of their latest games. A few impressions:
I recently acquired a good looking copy of WHQ. That’s Warhammer Quest… Yessir. It even included the 3 treasure packs and the Lair of the Orc Lord expansion!
Before you faint or start hating me, stuff was missing. Basegame was complete but for 1 treasure card (a ring of healing I believe), and a treasure card from one of the packs. Also all the Room treasure cards were missing from all 3 packs strangely enough…
