A poke in the eye con?

Seeing as Necronomicon is not running this year another group decided to run their con at Easter, Eyecon. From their FAQ they intend to run it each year. Will it be the new Easter convention in Sydney?

I went and signed up to see how their registration process works, and to see if there was anything worth registering to play.

It was interesting to note that their site tracked how many places in games were available each session, and displayed them to people registering. And that while a couple of game were full, many were very empty.

Hopefully they will get more people turning up tomorrow morning to fill out some of the games. But is begs the question…

Has the Sydney RPG convention scene died and some people just don’t want to accept it? With what seems to be a change from all the Sydney cons being run by one set of past BNGs to another, are they just moving the deck chairs on the Titanic?

(See below for game spaces available at the time I checked tonight, the night before the con.)
