2016 Wrap Up

Sunday was a blast! We only got in Sabre Squadron (won by the WPA defenders - David and Anson) and With Sword and Shield (won by the Dwarven defenders Mike and Lee). 10+ hours of gaming was plenty.

A Late Addition

Just in case we have time... just in case the early games end up remarkably one-sided and are over in a flash... I'm adding one game to menu.

Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts

The battle will feature a Russian supply convoy being intercepted by a Turkish group on the Black Sea. V@S is an easy system to pick up so I don't foresee much difficulty getting a bunch of novice sailors on board.

Memorial Day 2016

One year on and we'll do it again! It's not going to be very "America" themed this year, but it will be fun.

The game plan:

12:00pm (That's noon to some of you)  Sabre Squadron
     The Litumsian civil war continues! The Rebels of the MCC are attacking a government airstrip. Take command of some rabble and enjoy some good old-fashioned third world fightin'. We'll be using my 15mm "modern" Africans. The game uses d10s - bring some lucky ones if you're superstitious.

3:00 (Or whenever the table is cleared and set back up)  With Sword and Shield
    That link won't get you too much info. Haha. WSS is still in beta testing, but you can give it a try! A combined group of Dark Elves and Demonic Horde attack the brave Stunties Dwarves. Become an entry into the Great Book of Grudges or break out a pen and start recording the dastardly dishonor done to your kinfolk.  I'll be supplying 6mm minis and will have plenty of dice. WSS uses a mix of die types, d4 - d10s.

Evening  X-Wing (probably) and/or Wings of Glory WWII
     These games are easy enough for any number of folks to just sit and play without too much thinkery. I've got enough ships for X-Wing , although it's a worthwhile idea to bring extra dice and templates. Bring WWII WoG planes if you have 'em. I have eight right now and may pick up a few more.

There's room for a second table if you're willing to supply a 4 X 6, minis and everything else necessary.
