I was in Brisbane last weekend, and realised to my good fortune that Briscon was happening. In the nightmare petrol-guzzling dystopian mire maze that was the carpark, I received good preparation for a Gaslands Refuelled particiption game. Ross Williams ran this as well as made all the scenery and cars. The tyre piles are sliced Nerf rounds.

|Buggy with rocket turret and shotgun|
|Car with turreted machine guns and napalm dropper|
|The course. Ross proudly told us that noone had made it to the second gate.|
|Start your engines!|
|We race to the first gate, which activates weapons.|
|I veer infront of the buggy and drop a molotov accurately on it|
|Mayhem! I dodge a rocket; napalm is dumped and the buggy crashes into the other car|
|Both my opponents blow up, I try to squeeze through the eye of the needle|
and we called the game. Great fun!
Other participation games I saw included Lion Rampant crusades and Wings of Glory. There was an impressive 15mm Johnny Reb display game of Gettysburg, but it lacked any explanation or crowd-wranglers. I'm getting crotchetty.

I had a good time at the bring & buy stand, including an absolute bargain on OOP Forgeworld renegade milita and metal Catachans.
