EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

GnomeCon, a three-day science fiction/fantasy convention slated to hit Savannah in April, will be hosting a series of Flames of War games run by Effingham County Middle School 6th grade social studies teacher Alan Sheridan. He has been using his passion for miniature gaming to help capture his students' imagination.

Approximately 18 students participate in a Flames of War after school group hosted by Sheridan. The table-top game is published by Battlefront Miniatures, who offers full support to school groups looking to host the game as an extra-curricular activity. Sheridan's group meets every Friday.

At GnomeCon, Sheridan will run two sanctioned Flames of War tournaments. On April 21, a tournament for adults will take place and on April 22, a tournament for middle and high school students will be featured. Both tournaments will begin at 9 a.m. Visit http://gnomecon.org/ for more information.
