Ziggurat Con

A very special convention is happening this summer.

Ziggurat Con, being held June 9 from 1200 to 2100 hours at Camp Adder/Tallil Airbase, in Iraq, is open to all allied military personnel and civilian contractors in Iraq.

This is the first gaming convention EVER to be held in a War Zone.

Full details and a picture of some of the organizers a can be found here.

I'm making damn sure everyone at the con gets a comic book or two. I'm also sending a ton of trade paperbacks for door prizes, as well as Out of the Box games, Munchkin, Chez Geek, Mag*Blast and, of course, Chez Grunt.

Folks know my opinions on the war, but no matter what yours is, there are people over there on all sides who need our help.

This is just one way of helping fellow gamers who find themselves in an ugly, awful situation. They're doing something I couldn't do and I, for one, want to send stuff along to give them a break, for at least a few hours.

For more information, contact SPC David Amberson (a really cool guy I've had the honor and pleasure of e-mailing) at the following address: david.amberson (at) iraq.centcom.mil

Donations can also be sent to SPC Amberson directly at the following address:
