So, i'm putting together my Pet Projects for the summer and I realize 75% of them are game related... surprise
So, I figure why not let everyone know and enlist some help?


I've added some other ideas, too. Momentum and the Muse got the better of me.



If you are interested in participating in any of the games, let me know with a comment or a GeekMail requesting a Chair.

(I know dates/times matter, so I won't hold anyone to a Chair - at least until I set date/time, anyway).

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Game 1: Tuesday, Apr 30 Played 10 turns.

11 - Brian - RUSSIA (White)
10 - Scott H - TURKEY (Yellow)
6 - Steve H - FRANCE (Teal/Sky)
3 - Decatur - GERMANY (Black)
2 - Nick M - AUSTRIA/HUNGARY (Red)
1 - Jeff O - ENGLAND (Royal)
1 - Jeremiah - ITALY (Green)

The Eastern Juggernaut (RUS-TURK sauron Pact) succeeded in rolling over everyone in their path. France's strong start was for naught, thanks to the Euro Bloc pushing back devil. TURKEY should've won alone, but accepted a Shared Victory with his game-long ally, Russia, by NOT taking Sevestapol on final turn to honor the Pact (doing so would've swung the scores 11-10 the other way! Honor intact cool

Would like to rekindle my Superheroes campaign, The Second City Sentinels. Would use the new-ish MARVEL HEROIC RPG System. No experience would be necessary. Players could make own characters OR use pre-generated that I would provide.

Campaign: Set in Marvel Universe, Chicago.

"America's Got Power!" is the latest hit reality tv show. Contestants perform for the camera and public vote, to determine if they are worthy of making Chicago's own Super Team, the Second City Sentinels. Winners become members of the Training Squad, hoping for a shot at the Big League, usually due to the A Team's high attrition rate. The show is 2nd in ratings only to "The Second City Sentinels: Live!", where cameras follow the super-team around on their missions, filming everything (including the recent demise of some SCS team members, ratings went thru the roof). With new vacancies on the A-Team, a new round of "America's Got Powers!" is holding auditions next week.

So, what's YOUR power...?
----------------------------------------------
Wouldn't mind running a bi-weekly campaign. Tuesdays likely best for me Could host at the arena April thru Sept. Number of players isn't set, an ensemble cast would be fine, any total fine as long as 4-5 heroes were present each session. I use battlemaps and HeroClix miniatures.
You wouldn't need anything, unless you want to bring your own dice (tho I have tons you're welcome to).

Interested?

Still want to pursue John P's campaign idea. I now have alot of the stuff, too. We could even run events at both his place and the arena, maybe once/month?

If nothing else, would like to see a few more fly-til-you-die set-ups at our monthly all-day gatherings.

This is hex mat space combat with little metal ship models.

Our last Fly-'Til-You-Die games:
NWIGBA Weekly Game Night - Monday, June 24th 2013
NWIBGA - Weekly Monday Night Game Night, August 13, 2012 (See entry #3)

I need to finish the Big Spina board I started last summer.
Chariot-racing!

It can be a long game, but it's racing + chariot combat driving!
-------------------------------------------------
Update (May 3): Finally found 2 more sets of the chariots I've been hunting for! Now I have enough for 12 Drivers! Now to build them and paint them! Ugh... cry

I like the idea of a Storytelling Night:
* Tales of the Arabian Nights
* Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective
* Fiasco (3-5 players)
* Rory's Story Cubes (a nice warm-up, filler)
* Dixit
* Gloom
* Agents of SMERSH
* Once Upon A Time
* Fairy Tale
* Mice & Mystics
* Dread

Any other suggestions?

I'm declaring our September All-Day Game Day "Storytelling Day"!
Saturday, Sept 14 11:00a-11:00p @ HSC2

Might be willing to start a monthly or bi-weekly 4E campaign for experienced veterans (tho noobs would be taken good care of, "experience" not an absolute requirement). This would be an ongoing campaign of my design. Players would design their own characters at the 1st session (tho pre-gens could be provided in a pinch).

Got this over holidays, been sifting the rules. Supposed to be an improvement on the original - both said to be the "most accurate boardgame simulation of pirate life".

Ok, since we've done baseball, let's see if we can drum up support for a NWIBGA Fantasy Football League. Strat-o-Matic offers a terrific dice & card-based strategy version for football, too. We could hold a Draft and run a League Of Our Own? Or just each take a pro team pack? 8-12 teams? Play weekly or bi-weekly (part of Monday gaming or other weeknights as needed?)

Game would be about a $50 purchase (hoping to split cost with other participants)

Are you ready to rumble?
