Hi everyone, my excellent Comrade nicknamed Bonzillou (aka Pascal from Bordeaux) wants us to organize during this convention a CCN tournament (or Epic and Grand battle games). It maybe possible if some people are interested by it. So, tell me if you're are possibly interested.
Greetings from Le Mans & Happy New Year !

Is there a website for the convention?
How multi-lingual would this be, or would there be a lingua franca?

Much as I'd like to go, I think the wife would take a dim view of me flying from Sydney to Paris to play CCN.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

There's already no website. The games played are in english and/or french. Naturally, a lot of wargamers speak english (for example, my friend Bonzillou who is engaged in the organization speaks very well and had worked for Combat Commander). For myself and my friends, we play CCN with original cards in english.
Why not to plan a romantic trip to Paris with your wife ?
I'm gonna ask Bonzillou and other comrades from my wargames club and the french federation to clear the situation and tell you more about it.
Greetings from Le Mans and sorry for my poor and bad english

I'd be interested, living as I do up the road in Belgium. But what's the date? I'll be away on vacation the first half of the month.

It does depend on the date, and how many days it lasts. Is it a one day event or longer? I only ask because I think I might make the final. Ha ha. I would certainly consider a trip over from England, just need a few more details.

It will occur on the WE of 29th of September (as Bonzillou said).

It will last one day for the moment (depending on people coming and material (maybe interesting to print maps like for M44 tournaments)).

I'll be back soon to tell you more about that.

Currently, there's nothing about 2018 edition on the french wargamer forum Strategikon..

Very likely I would think about getting the train down to Paris for that weekend since it's at the end of September. Who knows, my wife might come along too. Would be great to keep us informed of progress on this event, or give a link to an eventual website that will have the details.
Thanks

Hi everybody, My friend Bonzillou (who is part of the organization of the OPJH (Open de Paris des Jeux d'Histoire - Paris Open of History Games)) has contacted me to organize the CCN tournament during this event with some Prétoriens members. Tonight, i'm gonna talk to my comrades to decide what we will do in September. I'm quite sure that the tournament will be organized. Stay tuned & "Vive l'Empereur !"

Well, it is decided ! We will organize a tournament on September the 29th and 30th (Saturday & Sunday). Next week, I'm going to French Memoir'44 Open in Carentan and I will encounter Richard Borg to ask him if we can reproduce some CCN Battle Maps to make easy this 1st tournament. I have one question for you :
What kind of battles do you want to play : Regular, Epic or LGB ?

If this is your first tournament, I would go for regular games to maximise the number of players and the number of games folks will be able to play.
Looking forward to attending this.
