Fall In! FAQs



The following is a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Fall In!® at the Lancaster Host & Resort. From time to time this list may grow, as new questions are raised or details need to be explained.

What is Fall In!® and where is it located?

Well it’s a gaming convention devoted to historical gaming. It’s being held at the Lancaster Host & Resort (Host) 2300 Lincoln Highway East (Route 30), Lancaster, PA 17602 over 3 days in November every year. For info on the Host, see the following links: Each year Fall In!® draws about 1,900 people from around the world and exhibitors offering everything you need to recreate military battles from across history or alternate battles drawn from your own imagination. Scenarios can range from historical ancients to history making moderns, while some even create games from the rich worlds of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. There are tournaments, seminars and a Hobby University of painting classes and events. Activities go from 8am until the wee hours. If you are a gamer, military history buff and within driving distance you should try and make it – even for just the day – you will love it!

What makes Fall In!® special? For me it is the people and friendships formed. I look forward to seeing this band of crazies every convention ... - THIS is the real reason I enjoy the convention. Oh yeah, and I did happen to buy some toys!

What is the historical miniatures gaming hobby?

Three airports are located not far from the Host: Harrisburg International Airport (HIA) 40 minutes, Philadelphia International (PHL) 1 hr. 20 mins and Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) 1 hr. 40 minutes.

When will Gamemasters (GMs) be allowed to send in their games?
Just like in previous years, the GM Event Registration will open the day after Historicon convention at the website. However, also like in previous years, the Events Manager will contact clubs prior to that date to allow them more time to organize their GMs and submit their game list quickly.
