GameQuest 2009

GameQuest 2009. An interesting venue, the Vancouver WA, USA Hilton convention center had a boatload of space and about 900 attendees. It's mostly board games and board games that include miniatures. My buddies and I got in a couple of games with the Anniversary Edition of Axis and Allies, but I put on a Wings of War scrum from 1:00 to 5:00 PM on Saturday and got 9 players including a husband and wife that brought their own planes.... There seems to have been a bit of grudge involved, but husband (flying Goring's white plane) drew the explosion card for his first damage card, then drew it again after a couple exchanges with a fresh plane. Not a good night to be the husband, I think. The tweener flew the last plane shot out of the sky, but a couple of the older guys flew off the field intact.

The wife gets caught by herself in a Series III Nieuport but husband's Goring get's blowed up and she wiggles for while but eventually succumbed to the firepower from the combined Richthofen's (Series I Albatross DIII and Series II Roland CII).

Father and son flew till shot down then went to play some other game, leaving seven players still in. Husband gave up on Goring and came back for a third try in one of my planes.... We started with two Goring's at either end of the table.

The rivers and roads are from WizardCraft out of Coeur d'Alene, ID US sold ready to play. The craters are from Stonehouse Miniatures out of Portland, resin castings that I painted and decorated. They are all basically intended for 15mm minis, but it makes a more interesting table than featureless felt.... ;o)
