Nashcon 2020 is still on
We are monitoring the Nashville Mayor's four phase plan and if things continue as they are, all restrictions will be lifted by the first of July. Our vendor space is full, we have 3 new tournaments , and people are submitting games and buying passes.
We want everyone to be aware that because of the need to maximize space there will be no way to maintain social distancing in the game rooms. We are not requiring face masks and we won’t able to supply them, so anyone that wants to wear a masks should make sure to bring one /or more/ with you. We encourage attendees to take appropriate precautions including wearing a mask and not to attend - or leave the convention - if you have or develop flu- related symptoms.
The hotel will have hand sanitizer outside of each game room, and if you are staying at the hotel each guest room will be supplied with sanitizing hand wipes. The hotel is working hard to maintain a high level of sanitization, and there is a link to a video below that explains all the steps they are taking.

The Con within a Con
Johnny Con is an annual gathering of fans of the rules and games of the late John Hill, with the focus on his famous set of ACW rules “Johnny Reb”. We have recently been getting together every year as part of Nashcon and if you are interested in playing or learning these fantastic rules there is no better place to do it!
Most of these game masters were original play-testers, developers and designers of “Johnny Reb” and this is a great chance to come out and play with some of the guys that were in John Hill’s gaming group and helped develop “Johnny Reb” into what it has become over the years. This is a group of friendly gamers that enjoy teaching the rules to others, so no worries if you’ve never played before....you will be welcomed!
HMGS Mid-South Presents
The Premier Gaming Convention in Nashville TN
As we gather again for gaming and fellowship we look forward to seeing you there!
Besides the amazing games, there are several ACW battlefields within easy driving distance, like: Franklin, Thompson’s Station, Spring Hill, Nashville and Stones River. Nashville is home to the best music, great restaurants, shopping, movies, and can provide plenty of entertainment and fun for the entire family if you’d like to make Nashcon into a family adventure!
HMGS-MidSouth is a non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Tennessee serving members primarily South of the Mason-Dixon Line and East of the Mississippi River.
