Another Schenectady Wargamer Association Gameathon is coming our way April 8th. The March Gameathon netted more than 25 participants, even though the sun was shining and the temp. was an amazing 60 degrees! Game lineup for the next Gameathon is not finalized yet, but should include the usual suspects--D&D, historical minis, Euros, and FFG. 11am start for session one, 5pm start for session two, $6 for both sessions, $4 for one (except full-time students, $3 and $2, respectively).
See www.swa-gaming.org for more info.

Studio of Bridge and Games (aka Price Chopper Community Room)
1639 Eastern Parkway, Schenectady, NY

Actually, the head count was just over 35 different gamers this month. Considering the absolutely gorgeous weather, it was a welcome surprise.

Trying to decide what, if anything, to run.

I was thinking about all-day Titan. But I'm not sure if anyone would be into a playing a game that could take both sessions. If they got eliminated they could play something else in the evening slot, but still.

FYI for those who don't know- My Titan set is "deluxe". All the pieces are on poker chips, and the board and battlelands are larger and laminated!

If anyone out there is into it LMK.

TITAN, TITAN, TITAN!!!!!


LOL... Thanks again for running El Grande Bill, thats a cool game. Pretty fun.
Different as well.

And I am NOT just saying that because I won. It was a good experience regardless.
Now our battlefront game previous to that... ugggh. that was ugly, rife with bad die rolls, poor tactical choices and just a bad showing on the brits behalf.

Does that mean you're in?

Just trying to gauge interest. It's hard to tell how something is going to go over at a Game-a-thon.

And besides RPGs I'm not sure what else is running. Don't know if they need any more GMs. Maybe I'll delay Titan a month or two.

Actually, I am hoping you will be willing to postpone the double titan session till May.
Mainly due to the fact that I will not be attending the April 8th. GOT.

thanks

Let me know if you have an issue with postponin it.

R.

Too bad I am finding out about this now. It would be cool to do some board games, or even some halo2.

Yeah right! I forgot the big board! ugh what a dope.

We had to play on my normal sized set. Oh well, we still had 5 players and it went well.

Next time I run it, I won't forget. Maybe in June or July.
