Enfilade 2018 Recap: Part 1 - Other People's Games

Enfilade 2018 wrapped up on Sunday and it was another well run and attended convention. This year there were over 400 attendees making it one of the largest ever. It felt like every gaming period was packed with games and gamers. Overall, it seems like the convention is healthy and the Enfilade staff should be congratulated on another great convention.

Sorry for the delay in getting these photos up. But due to some computer issues, it has taken a couple days to put together my photos.

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. This year I seemed to have a little trouble getting a good focus with my camera. So even though I tried to take photos of most of the games, not all of them turned out and some of the ones that were okay are somewhat fuzzy.

The theme for 2018 was Rebels and Rebellions, and there were lots of games that focused on the theme.

Note this is a long post with lots of photos.

Friday Afternoon and Evening
Enfilade started out with some interesting games on Friday. There was the Teutoburg game, which looked great, along with some other interesting games.
