Well, the night before actually. But we hope that everyone got a few rounds of whatever your favourite game is in between some mouthfuls of sausage today.
First up we had a play of Republic to Empire on a lovely Cigar Box Battles Mat.
Some Guildball was being played. Still a popular game at the club.
There were some more Vanguard games getting played for Kings of War. This will be wrapping up soon and players will be moving onto their bigger armies in preparation for Crows Feast.
Fields of Glory is another game you’ll see every week.
The giant Battletech miniatures continue to get a weekly game at the club.
Flames of War continues to be a regular, this was a first run for an army.
Finally some of the Tantive IV missions from X-Wing were played. There was a tense moment at the end of the first mission as the Imperial player, desperate to cripple the front of the ship lined up three of his ships hoping that would damage it as it moved through. Lucky for the rebel crew their shields took the hits for a win.
