|It is WWI and the last of the great dog-fights is taking place. The skies are
alive with men of steel as they vie for control of the air. Britain struggles to
maintain its sea power, but who will rule the new domain of power - The
Sky. These are the battles that some say decided the fate of the world. How
will it play out when you are in command of the new weapon of war? The
plane in its infancy takes center stage in these struggles that often go
overlooked. Not this day! The grand aces have climbed into their cockpits
and taken war on wings to the aerie heights that only falcons and eagles
knew. GM: Steven Duke brought to Texicon an event that had to come.
Wings of War
If you missed it or if you don't know how important the plane was to WWI
you should. Next year you can.
If it flies...

|Instead of having competitions and raffles
and the other ways conventions hand out
prizes. We decided that the best method
to hand out prizes would be to reward
players who were having a good time,
staying true to the spirit of camaraderie,
being friendly, having good
sportsmanship, and in general making the
con a better convention just by being
there. Thus, we devised Game Wagon.
Here you see us pulling it around the
convention and passing out gifts/prizes to
attendees who promote the values that
encapsulate the concept of Texicon. Ok,
we may have given out prizes for other
reasons too, but hey, that is our

|Karl and Kevin Pajak dedicate Texicon 2010 to Dave and Carol Turrietta who were tireless
advocates for gaming of all kinds. They welcomed us into their homes and lives. Their
friendship and guidance in our growth still forms a major portion of who we are. They were our
best friends and we miss them. It was a major blow to both Karl and I when they passed away,
and we still miss them. The gaming community still feels their loss, also. It is their vision of
gaming that we aspire to bring to all our conventions. Kevin and Karl want to tell them both...
"Hey guys, we made it!"
|Kevin and Karl would like to thank Ol'
South Pancake House for allowing us
to spend countless hours there while
working on Texicon.
We find the friendly atmosphere and
wonderful food to be a big attraction to
working there in their back room. If
you have not tried their German
Pancake you must. People have
driven up from Houston
Ol' South is the official sponsor of
pancakes for Texicon. Let's face it
folks, gamers love breakfast and Ol'
South bring all gamers the best food
for that gaming stomach.
