  General News Summer 2014 Update

Now that summer is over and school is back in action, I can get back to business. My summer was a busy one, played a ton of board games!

So, I've been thinking about forming a game group that would play on a regular basis that is open to the public. I was thinking of doing something like the Rochester Boardgames Society (RBS). Meet on the 4th Saturday of the month at a neutral location (which we would have to secure or negotiate with). I was thinking about also giving it a name: Enchanted Mountains Game Society? Let me know what you think.


location: Buffalo Niagara Convention Center - downtown Buffalo NY
when: September 19-21, 2014
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this will be the second year we attended this convention, the first year we attended as guests.

location: SUNY Geneseo, Geneseo NY
when: January 30 - February 1, 2015
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this will be our 598409586405694 time we have attended this convention. Look forward to another great year.

location: what ever hotel we decide to stay in when we get to Charlotte, NC
when: February 13-16, 2015 - President's Day Weekend
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this is our convention for Lenny Hayes who lives too far from us! This will be our 2nd convention and we hold in the lobby/open area of the hotel we stay at. Last year's was a BLAST. There is no event list, we play what we want when we want, all games, all weekend and eat good food. If anyone is interested in attending contact Renee to find out where we will be.

There are some other conventions in the Fall in various areas around us, but I have not decided to attend any of these at the time I write this.

Games we played:

1. Praetor - 2 games

2. Eight Minute Empire: Legends

other notes: We were suppose to get OGRE and an Epic Battles of Westeros to the table along with Quantum to the table this past weekend but not having the numbers and not knowing when people would show up changed the ebb and flow of things. 

We had originally planned on playing the new Memoir '44 D-Day Maps from the 10th/70th Anniversary but all that fell through when I was unable to obtain a copy of the maps before our event. I ordered it on Sunday night, should be here before next weekend.

Had a pretty good weekend, played a lot of lighter fare but it was worth it. The socializing was worth the sacrifice of meatier games, but we did manage to get some meatier games to the table.

  General News 70th Anniversary of D-Day (June 6th) Event 2014

This Friday June 6, 2014 we will be running an Epic Memoir '44 event.

other games that we will be playing that day:

1. D-Day Dice
2. Heroes of Normandie (demo's only)
3. Memoir '44 - Overlord Omaha Beach scenario

our Schedule so far:

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM: open gaming

6:00 PM: Memoir '44 Overlord Omaha Beach Scenario (8 players)

other notes: This gaming day is centered around D-Day because it is D-Day! It is a special day (for Americans) in history and I believe it should be celebrated on its own. Too many people think that Memorial Day is for barbecues! So, we will play all the D-Day games that we can! Even if that means we need to re-theme some to play on Friday! If you wanna play Nations or Splendor or any other game that isn't related to D-Day, come back on Saturday or any other day of the year. :)
