Welcome! I am in the middle of learning a new interface for updating my website. If you were looking for information on my past Megagames The Colossus of AtlantisAquila Rift, or The Galaxy Will Burn, they should be restored within a few weeks.

Watch the Skies: Cold War at Wellycon

The first megagame project of the Wellington Megagame Collective will be an adaptation of Jim Wallman’s classic Watch the Skies game to the Cold War era of the 1960s. It will be run on Saturday 2 June 2018, at Wellycon. Bookings can be made here. As well as booking for the convention, please register for the game on meetup.com. Casting for the game will be based on the meetup.com event registrations.

More information about the game will be posted here closer to the date. Casting for teams and roles will close Saturday 26 May.



Dillon started playing serious strategy games in the 1970s and has been running Megagames in New Zealand since the early 1990s, primarily at gaming conventions in Christchurch and Wellington. These games have also been called “Grand Strategy Games” or the “Saturday Night Special”. He was lucky enough to play in some London based Megagames in 2007/08. In 2017 Dillon was a member of the Megagames Coalition at GENCON 50 in Indianapolis, where he ran Colossus of Atlantis, helped control Watch the Skies, and coordinated a seminar on designing Megagames.


The best way to contact Dillon is by emailing grand.vizier@gmail.com.
