Hello Reader.

 

The Rumble in the Jungle event was born from an idea that always seemed rather far fetched to me: organizing a wargaming tournament where I lived.

 

Today, after the most recent edition of the “Rumble in the Jungle” the idea might not sound so out of place, but back then when it first occured to me it was difficult to believe that anyone would come to Cuiabá (the capital city  of the State of Mato Grosso, pretty far from the main city centers in Brazil) to play a wargaming event, especially twice. I couldn’t be happier to be proved wrong

Hello Reader.

 

Preparations for the second Rumble in the Jungle event “Rumble in the Jungle II – The Mission” are well underway as me and my friends in the “Clube Cuiabano de Wargames and Boardgames” (CCWB – our local war gaming and board gaming club) continue to work on the new projects we’ll feature this year to welcome the participants for another weekend of gaming and fun.

 

As the event’s date draws ever nearer (it will happen in the 23rd and 24th of July 2016 in the city of Cuiaba in Brazil) it’s inevitable to look back and remember how enjoyable and rewarding it was to host the event and gather friend around the cherished hobbies of war gaming and board gaming.

Salve Leitor!

 

Os preparativos para o “Rumble in the Jungle II – A Missão” continuam a todo vapor. Tanto eu, quanto os amigos do Clube Cuiabano de Wargames e Boardgames (o CCWB) estamos envolvidos em vários projetos para receber os participantes para mais um final de semana de jogatina e diversão.

 

Às vésperas do novo evento (que acontece nos dias 23 e 24 de julho em Cuiabá/MT) é inevitável olhar para trás e relembrar do 1º Rumble in the Jungle e o quão prazeroso e recompensador foi reunir diversos amigos em torno do hobby dos wargames e boardgames.

Hello Reader!

 

Playing miniature games is always our escuse to meet, so, as usual, with Marcos coming to visit Brazil it was high time we organized something to get together with our friends in Sao Paulo and play a couple games.

 

Last time we had Marcos around we held the 1st PAPOCON, the first meeting from the do Papo de Mesa Podcast (the podcast me and Marcos host) held at the “Clube Paulista de Wargames” (the Sao Paulo wargaming club), so it was natural to think about holding the 2nd PAPOCON this time… but the hard truth is that the podcast isn’t being published as often as we’d like as we’re struggling to find the time to record and edit new episodes, so calling this meeting a PAPOCON was almost like salting our own wounds .

Olá Leitor!

 

Jogar bonequinhos é sempre a desculpa que usamos para nos encontrar, então, como de costume, com uma nova visita do “Ultra”Marcos ao Brasil é claro que tínhamos que organizar algo para nos reunirmos.

 

Da última vez rolou a 1ª PAPOCON, o primeiro encontro do Papo de Mesa Podcast (programa do qual somos hosts) sediado lá no Clube Paulista de Wargames, então era natural que tivéssemos a 2ª PAPOCON… mas a verdade é que o Papo de Mesa Podcast anda estacionado diante da falta de tempo para editar e gravar novos episódios, então chamar esse encontro de PAPOCON parecia meio despropositado.

According to the bets being placed this article should see the light of day sometime around 2017, but in order to contradict the naysayers I’m publishing it today, little over a month after the Rumble in the Jungle was held. I do like to contradict prognostics.

Salve Leitor.

 

Uma das coisas legais que fiz relacionadas ao hobby no ano que passou foi ter ido visitar o Clube Paulista de Wargames por ocasião da 1ª Papo de Mesa CON (ou PAPOCON como eu gosto de chamar o encontro).

 

“Como assim? Que diabos foi essa PAPOCON e porque eu não fiquei sabendo dela?” Consigo ouvir alguns de vocês perguntando, sem entender que conversa é essa de PAPOCON e tentando lembrar se você ouviu falar desse evento ou não. Deixa eu contar essa história do começo.

Hello there Reader.

 

One of the great hobby related things I did last year was attending the first “Papo de Mesa CON” (or simply PAPOCON as I like to call it) in Sao Paulo/Brazil.

 

You may be wondering now what am I talking about as I had never mentioned it here and I do tend to give my readers fair notice about any events I’ll attend in case any of you guys want to join in the fun. If you read this blog regularly you know by now that I’ve started hosting and producing a podcast show with my good friend “Ultra”Marcos (from the “Chumbo, Plastico, Tinta & Pincel” blog) called “Papo de Mesa Podcast” (which would roughly translate as “Tabletop Talk” in the English language), a show produced in Portuguese language (so it might not be of interest to some of my English readers) thus aimed at the gaming communities in Brazil and other Portuguese speaking countries given that very little hobby content is available in our native language.
