The GrogHeads Central Command will be back at Origins this year running wargame-specific events in the main gaming hall in our own dedicated area. We've got a bunch of great partner companies we're working with.

Here's the 3 main days that have most of the events









there's more detail about the events on the grids, as well as most questions answered, over here http://grogheads.com/?p=10420

Just a note - there's another company or two that still might join us, but their events won't get entered in time for the Origins program guide. We'll still hold them as scheduled events and let you know when they'll happen, but it'll be more ad hoc than these.

That minis drop-in on Wednesday (5-7PM) .. wonder if I could bring out Arty Conliffe's masterpiece Crossfire and get some other interested. Are minis and terrain available to use?

That minis drop-in was intended for folks who want to poke around with the rules from Proving Ground, but if there's a spare table (and probably will be on Wednesday), there's no problem with goofing off with something on your own, as long as it's not a ticketed event.

Will the Lock and Load tactical events include Heroes of the Nam? Are those teaching events, demos, games?

Full games, although the GMs will be able to teach some basic mechanics and help with some rules clarifications. They are not 5-minute demos; they are full scenarios

The plan right now is either Heroes of the 'Nam or Heroes of the Pacific, based on what LNLP shows up with more of

That said we're always happy to fill some dead space between scheduled games to include other LNLP games! (with our crew, you won't have a hard time finding folks interested in playing them)
