We will be hosting a Wings of demo at Mid-South Con, in Memphis, TN, March 28-30

Event web site

http://www.midsouthcon.org/index.html

This is thd 26th MsC, an event which blends a lot of fantasy/sci-fi types with euro games and board gamers.

The time slot is not official quite yet, but we'll probably be running DoWW2 Saturday morning and WWI on Saturday afternoon. It's a four hour time slot, so anyone in the area can come by for at least some part of it and either enjoy (or try for the first time-- we'll structure the rules to be kind to beginners).

For WWI, we'll be using the first set of miniatures and planes from all current offerings (3 boxes, 2 boosters). Unfortunately, round 2 of the miniatures and the next boosters are not quite here yet.

We'll have a mix of actions and will be set up to play from 4 to 10 players in any given scenario. And, we'll be set up so that folks can walk-in and join, without waiting for a scenario to end. Those eliminated quickly will get a chance to rejoin (probably with a weaker plane, but it still flies!)


Hope to see folks there.

We had a nice turnout and some fun games. Every group is different. I had about six scenarios prepared for use "without the minies" to incorporate all the other planes in the series. But the folks we had were quite happy to just play one fighter-v-fighter dogfight after another, swapping planes and sides around as we went. We ended up with an exciting head-on shot with the last two planes both being near the final damage number.

I'll post some pix shortly.
