KevCon Oct 6th-9th, 2006

When: Friday October 6th until Monday evening October 9th. Four Days
of Game Playing
Start Time: 6PM Friday October 6th

I actually have to work on Friday, but will try to be there at about
8PM on Friday,
October 6th.

Where is KevCon?: Kevin`s English School, Tsukahara Station,(Daiyuzan
Minami Ashigara City, Kanagawa. It`s not your typical school in Japan.
It looks like a cottage with wooden floors and tables. It is pretty
nice! Address: 2659-4 Tsukahara, Minami Ashigara City, Kanagawa

Come for one or all days. Bring a sleeping bag and sleep over or
reserve one of the beds available in this Kari River side cottage-like
house. Views of Mount Fuji and surrounding rice fields can be had.
Email Kevin to reserve a bed: greatpowers@yahoo.com

Come anytime! Bring your favourite games or play
what other people have brought. Also Kevin has an extensive collection of
wargames and boardgames in the club house or you can even check out
the games in Kevin`s War Store downstairs! http://www.KevinsWarStore.com

How to Get There from:
Tokyo, Fujisawa, Atsugi, Machida or Yokohama:
Take the Odakyu Line to Odawara and be sure to get into one of the
first four train cars as the train splits. Take a Kyuko (express
train) it has
red kanji on the side usually next to the door up top. It takes about
90 minutes.
Get off at Odawara Station and transfer to the Daiyuzan Line. Get off
at Iiwahara
Station, it takes about 11 minutes from Odawara. Take the only exit,
cross the
train tracks and take your first left. Walk straight until you see a
white house
across the street from the Fuji Supermarket. There will be a sign saying
Merry Lue and Kevin`s English School.

How to Get There:
From Shizuoka, Nagoya and other points South: Take the
Tokaido line or the Shinkansen and get off at Odawara. Transfer to
the Daiyuzan line and follow the directions above (for Tokyo).

**The Shinkansen also stops at Odawara. You take a Kodama Super
Express. It
takes about 40 minutes from Tokyo. Costs a little over 3,000 Yen one way.

Right next door is a restaurant. Across the street is the supermarket.
Downstairs is Kevin`s War Store and Merry Lue`s General Store if you
want some Doritos etc.

We have an oven, gas table stove, large fridge and microwave. Bath and
plus a load of games and game related books you can read. Plus you can
buy some
games from Kevin`s War Store which is located inside the cottage and
on the first floor.

Take a break from the city and see some mountain views and breathe
some fresh air.

Email me if you`d like to come: greatpowers@yahoo.com

Feel free to pass this on to interested people. Games of all kinds
welcome. Bring whatever you would like to play, chances are, others
will want
to play it too.

I may run a game myself or see what people want to run. I will keep
posting updates of what games will be run at our various JIGG Clubs.

At one KevCon we had over twenty people and JIGG was actually featured
in The
Mainichi Daily News. It was great to see JIGG in the Tokyo media! Last
was one of the best! It was great to meet so many of you!

What facilities do we have for playing games?
We have three large tables and two large rooms to play in. We also
have a large boardgame and wargame library to choose from.

Clean up:
Please wash your own dishes or put them in the dishwasher. Rinse out
your cans
or bottles. Some can be deposited across the street in the recyle bin
next to the drink
machine (across the street next to the supermarket). Please ensure to
separate recycle
ables into cans, pet bottles etc. This will help me to clean up faster.

Email Kevin at:
greatpowers@yahoo.com To tell me you are coming and I
will Email you my phone number should you need it.

Co-Founder of JIGG
