Hello all,

Just some news, thanks to the kindness of GMT Games, The Hunters will be played as an event this coming WBC. They sponsored us in.

I have already laid out the plans for having 6-person wolfpacks in the tournament. There will be 3 wolfpack patrols, and during each patrol, 2 people in the wolfpack will have "Escorts Focused" while the other 4 get "Escorts Busy". This will rotate, so that every player has the benefit twice, and the negative mod once, to make it fair.

Should be a lot of fun, I may even track the best wolfpacks for bragging rights Not sure how many plaques we get, probably 2-3 for a trial event.

Due to the 3 patrol format, it should only run 2-3 hours at worst, so I hope however many of you can make WBC this year can make time to enter it. Would love to see this trial event get a nice turnout.

Greg

PS I'm GM'ing it

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

Great News Greg!

Though I will not be able to attend WBC, yet again, I will be thinking of you guys! I just hope they don't place your time slot against the B-17: Queen of the Skies tournament. Your Pens may get bombed and you'll loose the U-boats before they can set sail. shake

Hals und Beinbruch,
Jim P cool

Heya,

I specifically asked on the Event Form, to NOT be slotted the same time as B-17 (since a lot of people enjoy both games.) So hopefully that works out.

Smart move there, Greg. Definitely want to avoid a conflict with B-17.
