HMGS MidSouth is glad to announce that Nashcon will be back in 2021 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel. With all the time we have had at home this year we are looking forward to seeing what everyone has been building and painting.
HMGS MidSouth policy on COVID-19 is to adhere to all legal requirements. Currently the Davidson County Metro Government is not requiring any restrictions regarding COVID-19. All COVID-19 capacity restrictions were lifted on Friday, May 14, and updated guidance from the CDC led the Metro Public Health Department to also end the mask mandate on May 14th. Therefore, no masks will be required at Nashcon, and no social distancing restriction will be in place. Obviously this does not mean you cannot wear a masks if you feel you require one, and the Sheraton Music City Hotel urges any non-vaccinated guest to wear a masks. We want everyone to feel welcome and safe. You can go here if you would like more Nashville COVID-19 information. https://www.asafenashville.org/

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!

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!
