The birth of InterNosCon

To explain what I'm talking about, let's take a look at the past.

It was 2008 and Michele and Claudia were fuming cause each time they met their friend of Janus Design they never got to play together. It could seem strange but we live very far apart. Usually, we meet at conventions where, sure, we get to play but mostly to demo our games to people who don't know them. And when it's evening and the convention is over, we're so tired we can't really play anything.

So we decided to change things and create ourselves a situation where we would satisfy all of our gaming cravings. We get in touch with a friend who has a farmhouse for a gaming week-end. We chose a date and start collecting confirmation of attendance from people.

Instead of the foreseen "max 10 people", we found ourselves with 18 attendees. Excited by this result we organize a rich Programme of gaming sessions organized in orderly gaming slots, we collect subscription to events and even invent a name for this whole event: InterNosCon ("Inter Nos" being latin and meaning "between us" because, theorically, this was a very intimate event). The result is an astoundingly amusing week-end which you can see here.


After the first edition we decide we mean business. For the 2009 edition we leave the hills and relocate by the sea. We find the ideal place in the Hotel Brasilia in Lido di Classe where we get the awesome support of the hotel staff. The convention is a success: 71 enthusiastic attendees in place of the 50 people foreseen. And, had we had more sleeping accomodations, it would have be even more.

In 2010 we're still in Lido di Classe, but we move to a bigger hotel. We start the foreign guests tradition with Ron Edwards (Trollbabe, Spione, Sorcerer) from USA and Tobias Wrigstad (Dubbio, The Upgrade!) from Sweden. They gift us with a number of panels, workshops and gaming sessions to grace an already astounding Programme. We're so lucky we get with us also Frederik J. Jensen from Danemark, the authore of Montsegur 1244 (practically the most played game of the Con!).
2010 is also the first year of INC Book (Riflessioni Appassionate, italian text only, sorry). Our Call for Papers gathers 11 contribution from Italy and outside of it which, available on line, still inspire discussions and dialogue.

And now...
As enthusiastic as ever, we're getting ready for the 2011 edition, struggling, as usual, to offer something more to those attending our events. We trust the expectations will be met, but you don't have to take our word for it, you'll just have to check the Programme as it comes together!
