The Armchair Strategists was officially founded in 1975 at the California State University at Fullerton. The club soon hosted the first Orange County Simulations Convention, better known as ORCCON, in January of 1977. ORCCON grew into Strategicon, which eventually relocated to LAX.

In 2010, thanks in large part to the inspiration of the original Armchair Strategists, SoCal Smackdown brought gaming conventions back to Orange County. And now, in 2011, we're coming full circle by relaunching the group that started it all!
