Fruit, musksticks and getting in the way!
Victoria's only regional convention
Friday 31st March - Monday 3rd April, 2006
Welcome to the 7th FauxCon - Victoria's only regional convention!
This year's convention theme is Superpowers
and Mutations - not just as a comic book theme, but an indepth
examination of the hero phenonomen as it is projected by the
modern psyche. Please note that despite the enthusiastic support
of our theme, we must ask all attendees to wear their underwear
on the inside of any other clothing they choose to adorn themselves
What is FauxCon?
FauxCon is a weekend's worth of gaming - we aim to present events
that appeal to anyone that likes to play games, whether boardgames,
wargames, tabletop roleplaying, Live Action or freeforming events.
FauxCon changes venue every year or two, picking a new location somewhere
in regional Victoria - unlike
other conventions which remain at their preferred venue for as long as
they can - in order to give country Victorians a chance to attend the
sort of games convention that might normally only be available in
Melbourne. It also gives the established gamers who can't take time
away from their normal lives a chance to showcase their gaming talents
to Melbournians who take the time to travel out to FauxCon.
In 2006, FauxCon will be visiting Horsham, Capital of the Wimmera
area, and more specifically, the Horsham Croquet Club, adjoining the
beautific Wimmera River.
FauxCon 7 will be running on Friday 31st of March, Saturday 1st of April
and Monday the 3rd of April - unfortunately, due to a scheduling collision with
the regional croquet tournaments we were unable to get the site on
the Sunday. However, there is always a silver lightning, and numerous
fun activities have been organised for the con attendees who will
be idle on the Sunday. (See Special Events).
For this year's convention, FauxCon will also be trying out a few
new activities: FemmeCon,
a ladies night of gaming on the Friday night; a FauxCon dinner/picnic
at the scenic Halls Gap; and day trips for friends and family of
attendees to nearby tourist locations such as the plains of the Little
Desert National Park, the Horsham Agricultuaral college and the Wool
A number of items of lost property were handed to the convention
organisers at FauxCon V in Steiglitz. Although they were forgotten for
FauxCon VI, the organisers will definately have them to hand for the
coming convention. If you lost any, er, personal items at a previous
convention, please come to the main desk.
