|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 prerogative.

|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
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
