Talamania VII ?
« on: December 10, 2012, 01:59:32 PM »
It has been a really crazy year, do we want to get ahead of it and start culling dates?

I believe that that is in order, good sir!

Looking at Friday, May 17 thru Sunday, May 19, 2013.
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

I may be able to make it up for early Sunday at the best. We will be in N.C. on vacation until Saturday. Oh well.

OK. Starting the trash talk again, but also some cool stuff. I do stuff for conventions, but to be truthful I am demo running them for Talamania. It is my favorite gaming weekend of the year.
What I am bringing for the masses, ready to play and demo.

The usual stuff we always bring:
Chronopia & Warzone with even more new minis & units to surprise and murder (or at least try to)
Wings of War
Chariots

Some new stuff:

Dreadbowl: (NOT a redux of bloodbowl, this is a new kickstarter game, fast and mean)
Battle of alabaster station. I think this will be played a lot, it has some great rules and the minis look extreme! Space Hulk is going to get blasted.
Blackwater Gulch: Western gang fighting. If you guys are up for it we can do a fast league over the weekend.
There are some other board games that should be here by then they will come.

There will be two Warzone scenerios I am going to be running (or try to). Both Mars centric, one set in the universe, one just using the Warzone system. Make a 500pt strike force to take and hold an objective. The second scenerio I will have all forces prepared.

There will be an optional Blackwater gulch scenario once I've demoed the game, if people want to adventure.

For the Blackwater gulch, if you want to bring a squad of minis to play your own gang, gather 5-10  28-30mm (5 min is  a good gang) of western sculpt. I will bring empty cards so you can write up your gang for the weekend.

On a side note, Dave, was it you the one the personalized army list cards? If not who was it I want to have them done for this run.

Get pumped May/June will be on us before you know it!

Wasn't me.

Western gang fighting?  Hmmm...sounds fun.

Trash talk?  I'll leave that to those who feel they need the edge of psychological warfare.

I won't trash talk, but i'll make predictions.

Bill will help me in the chariot race again, because I will once again forget everything I was taught last year.

Dave will most likely blow his chariot off the board again.

Tim will theatrically act out/roleplay all my moves after I make them.

Andreas will kick my ass in anything we play, and make it sound really cool.

Fun for all. See ya there, ladies and gents...
