Join the Canucks Amuck Game Group at:
http://wargames.meetup.com/78/events/4821429/
and come out on Saturday, Jan 28, 2006

2006's first session features "Twilight Imperium" (Third Edition) an epic, low-complexity (but high strategy) game of galactic conquest in a galaxy torn apart by the collapse of the central authority. With a wide array of alien species and more ways to back-stab than a Roman senator in the Ides of March, this game is a graphic delight as well as fiendishly fun to play.

Other games to be shown include: "Descent: Journeys in the Dark", by Fantasy Flight Games, a tactical fantasy boardgame set in FFG's Runebound universe using Kevin Wilson's "Doom" mechanics; ADB's "Federation Commander: Klingon Border" - a revamped and simplified Star Fleet battles game; a few dogfights in the "Down in Flames" series of quick WWII aerial combat; and possibly a play-through of the original 1976 version of "Starship Troopers" by Avalon Hill.

Group organizer (and BGG member) Kozure will also be bringing a few beta versions of home-brew games for playtesting. (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/Kozure)

If you haven't been to a meet-up yet, this first meet-up of 2006 presents a great opportunity to get out and meet your fellow group members, and get a few games in at the same time.

sign up to the Canucks Amuck group for the full details on this and other Toronto wargame events.

How long are you planning on going for that day? OISE is not far from where I work but I will be working until 5ish. I wouldn't mind dropping in and checking things out, tho I probably couldn't stay to play anything.

Formally, the event starts at 1pm, but there will be a smaller group there earlier - around 10am - and there will be people there up to as late as 7pm

Not sure exactly when the TI3 game is starting....probably in the afternoon though.
