This year went fantastically. After every one of these I wish every person who attended was my neighbor and we could game every week. So great to see old friends and all the new faces!
Other then me knocking the ole TO rust off and slowing things a bit day one (sorry sorry sorry), everything went smashingly. I loved having everyone at my place. Friday night was a solid turnout with Games Played! Even sorted out our massive castle 9th age skirmish game, and while Joel can apparently play 9th age, his cultists can’t climb walls for shit. And who can forget Gort the Taruhk enforcer, scourge of the empire, and his bloody trail of body parts.
See here for 9th Age Skrimish Rules:
Those rules are a great way to introduce brand new players to miniatures gaming and the 9th age.
Game 3 did not disappoint with over 40 giants stomping around the battlefield.
Saturday night banquet on the deck was also great food and fun, and I think better then ever, so we may stick with that.
Joel Boccio was the Overall Winner (and Players choice Army!) , Ben Kerr won best paint, Micah Pierce Best General, and Russel Mooney Top sportsmanship.
