The “Siege of Vicksburg” convention, scheduled to take place on Presidents’ Day weekend, starting February 2024, at the VFW Hall in Vicksburg, Mississippi. This event not only celebrates our rich history but also brings together gaming enthusiasts for an unforgettable experience.

Join Us for a Weekend of Historical Gaming and Fun

We invite history buffs, gaming enthusiasts, and families to join us for a weekend that promises to be both educational and entertaining. Save the date for Presidents’ Day weekend in 2024, and stay tuned for more information on ticket sales, gaming opportunities, and vendor details.


We have dates and I am moving the convention to Ridgeland Mississippi. This was not an easy decision but I really like the new location, Reservoir Pointe.

The convention begins at 5PM Friday night and runs until midnight Saturday. Vendors will be able to pack up Sunday morning 8AM-10AM.

Badges are now on sale. I cannot stress enough how important pre-sales are. I am able to point to these when talking to sponsors and vendors. This allows me to provide prize support to make this the best convention possible for attendees.

You must have a badge to create and/or participate in tournaments.

In Case You Was Ponderin’

I am currently in negotiation with Sheraton in Flowood.

They add a new wrinkle, as food is a big part of the rental. They push it like: “Buy $1500 worth of food and get a $2000 discount”.

So, if it happens, Saturday may have a free breakfast.

Current offer is this: $7000 for 5190 square feet. I am way more comfortable at $5k, so we are looking at space closer to 3000 square feet.

I REALLY hope to have this done and selling tickets by the end of the month.

2023 Update #2

You guys know my struggle with communicating with the casino. Well, I finally got through and learned they have switched to a 21+ policy onsite.

I feel like this would effect the convention negatively by restricting attendees.

I do want to know what you think.

What do you think of the casino changing to 21+?

Right now I am leaning toward moving it to the Jackson area. I know I would at least pick up my local players.

2023 Update!

After finally talking to the Casino, they let me know that they are willing to commit to a date next year until January.

The reason being they are debating on refurbishing the room we used.

So what to do now? I can go forward with a location TBA but I don’t think that’s wise. So I think I will go forward with ticket sales starting when I know the venue.

Right now I am thinking this schedule:

Friday 5PM-MIdnight

Saturday 8AM-Midnight

Sunday will be for vendors to pack up.
