300 or so games in the lending library, two additional shelves upon which campers store their own games, and five days spent packed around a cluster of tables bending the mind and focusing the will on strategic victory.
What could this possibly mean???
It’s Spring CamasCon of course!
Forty campers made their way into the mountains, bringing carloads of strategy board games with them.
No need to toil away at work, cook, clean, or even venture more than the few feet between the dinning area, gaming tables, and bathrooms!
CamasCon is all about playing games, so so many games, meeting old friends and new, and gathering together to rejoice in being connected as followers of Christ.
Of course Van Helsing brought board-game-themed lessons for the chapel sessions.
What? You don’t think The Man In Black has anything to do with the Bible?
Oh, you of little faith. Sit through just one chapel and you too will be quoting scripture in the voice of Vizzini! Whether you are looking for quirky Bible lessons,
games with stuffed rats and teeny weeny cardboard cheeses,
epic battles between armies of toothsome monsters,
adventure on the high seas,
tricky track-building travails,
a word puzzle that inexplicably involves adorable plastic pickles,
or just the simple pleasure of antagonizing a good friend,
there’s something at CamasCon for every gamer.
feisty and argumentative,
or an experienced campaigner who is long in the tooth and just might have a gray hair or two.
Thank you to everyone who came and all those who worked behind the scenes to make Spring CamasCon a delightful experience for us all!
