Guest of Honor

Mike Nagel

Michael Nagel

Mike was first exposed to wargaming when living in Brazil in the late 1970's. He started design work through the creation of play-aids for his favorite games, then started his newsletter covering Avalon Hill's Up Front! game.

Wanting to improve on Joe Balkowski's Fighting Sail led to his first published GMT game design Flying Colors in 2005, followed by Ship Of The Line, Serpents Of The Seas and Sun Of York. Mike has also designed Ancient Battles Deluxe for Victory Point Games.

He works full time for the New Jersey Courts as an application developer and manager.


War College

Besides wargaming, NAVCON provides a more traditional means of learning. A convention like NAVCON provides an opportunity to hold seminars about naval warfare. Starting a few years ago, NAVCON has offered its own War College with lectures on naval subjects.

Look for updates regarding our War College events!
