TobyCon is named in honor of our Jack Russell terrier, Toby. He's a ball of fire, and too smart for his own good. Toby runs herd on everyone when they visit, and I end up holding him through most games as he demands to be up where he can see what is going on. Jack Russells have an insatiable desire to be involved and in charge.....
The first TobyCon had an ancient theme, with a Roman/Seleucid and a Han/Three Kingdoms Chinese game. Both games used Pulse of Battle for the rules.
The Han/TKC game was first - a clash between two exotic and colorful armies. Thanks to Terry Shockey for providing the armies. Beautifully done, and armies I've never seen in use before. I'd be lying if I said I remembered the flow of the game, but I believe the Han won the game.
Game 2 as a Seleucid vs. Roman game, planned and created by Eric Miller. Eric provided the vast majority of the figures (beautifully painted, as usual) while some of mine were pressed into service to flesh out the armies.

I had great fun, and I'm looking forward to the next game - hopefully in early November. I'm presently working away on redoing my game table, to get the design aesthetic to more closely match the cabinet style we've used throughout the house (Shaker). So far so good - but more on that in upcoming posts.
