Phenomenon Gaming Convention 2008

By jennybel75 - 6 June 2008 49

Phenomenon 2008 is a gaming convention held in Canberra at Daramalan College over the June 2008 long weekend.

Pheno provides role-playing, RPGA , Living Arcarnis and miniatures games (Warhammer 40K, Flames of War, etc) as well as special events such as the Tryptich, Mission Improv, the World Wide 4th Ed D&D games day on the Saturday and a banquet on the Sunday night. There are also a number of vendors who’ll be selling gaming supplies and books.

The Pheno website has details of our special events, role-playing and miniatures games. Chariman Morph invites you to come and have a look around, choose the games you want to play and join the Phenomenon collective for the fun! 🙂 Registration is from 6pm this evening and we’d love to see you there!

What’s Your opinion?

Is Warhammer that thing based in England, with mediaeval/lord of the rings type figurines made of pewter? We visited a shop in York in 88 and I acquired a very handsome fellow called The Blood Giant. I didn’t paint him though. He’s still around here somewhere. A friend bought all kinds of things, including a model of a castle turret. I believe he had plans to paint all of it.

el: yeah i think its wrong type of gaming… that makes no sense to me, but is pretty cool.

DMD: I have a differing opinion, so I spose I should begin this with a tirade about how stupid you are for thinking something different to me.

Warhammer was awesome! It was great fun. Painting the minituares, creating scenery, reading about the story behind it. Granted i barely ever actually played games, but it was cool! And don’t try and pull this ‘im so poor you rich bastards with 40K are lame. When I was a kid, we lived in a lake.’ crap, you are as middle class as anyone else here, you got birthday and christmas presents too. If you needed more money you should have had a pamphlet delivery route like I did, and become a good little captitalist getting paid exploitatively low wages to save up for something you didn’t need but did want!

End nerd rant.

lol, Maelinar bringing up a really old internet thing, typical.

Are there any Warhammer freaks on here. If so, let me tell you you’re all SUCKERS! Paying $100’s and $100’s of dollars on stupid little army men to get your nerd fix.

Me, I got my proper, economical nerd fix from certain cards that you will laugh at me if I mention. Just a couple of bucks for a booster pack, $15 for full deck….best nerdiness my little money could buy! Then I sold my collection which, acording to my twelve year old self, was worth hundreds, for twenty bucks when I was fifteen so I could buy…stuff *whistle*

End nerd rant.
