The theme for 2017 was Invasions and there were lots of games that focused on the theme.
As per my normal Enfilade recap, I’m doing two Enfilade posts; one on the general convention and other people's games and a second covering the games I ran. This post will cover the general convention stuff. I tried to take photos of most of the games, but not all of them turned out and with over 65 evens I just didn’t get to them all. Note this is a long post with lots of photos.
Friday afternoon used to be pretty quiet and was a good time to catch up with people you hadn’t seen in a year. However, this year was different as the afternoon was busy with lots of games and that carried over into the evening. Here are some photos from the first two gaming periods.
