Summer is traditional game convention season—Origins started today in Columbus, Ohio—but these two you may not have heard of.

APBA logoConnections, running August 9-12 at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, has a serious purpose, “to advance and preserve the art, science, and application of wargaming.” Actually more of a conference, the event includes a number of presentations and panels by military officers and historians, as well as an opportunity to participate in game lab activities.

The 2016 APBA Convention (June 24-26 in Alpharetta, Georgia) is an event dedicated to the 65 year-old company’s sports strategy games. There’ll be tournaments for baseball, football, and hockey, and a playtest event for a new nine hole par 3 golf course.
