Hi all

I'm always interested to see what sort of numbers each of the miniatures events attract at Cancon.

In 2016 the most popular systems were (in order) Warmachine/Hordes, Flames of War, Kings of War, 40K and Bolt Action. How about this year?

These days I am mainly interested in historical games. What were the numbers for the Ancients rulesets. Were there any Napoleonic games? How about the relative popularity of Flames of War, Bolt Action, and Chain of Command?

Thanks

Mark C

EDIT: Found the following figures elsewhere

SAGA at CanCon .... 15 players

I'm still surprised by the Age of Sigmar turnout. 52 players is huge given how dead the system was a year ago.

Points and a framework on how to play a balanced game has breathed life into it (and some wanted to give it another go - Im personally really enjoying it; I prefer it to 40K at the mo)
