If you've ever wanted to play and actually complete one or more continuous games of Fatal Alliances (or World in Flames) in a solid week, consider coming to this year's WiFcon in Livonia, MI (near Detroit).
You'll play at a table with other gamers for a week and get to play an entire game or more. You can even play with the game designer. We'll have World in Flames (WW2) and Fatal Alliances (WW1). It's always the best week of the year.
