|All 6 boards|
Anyway now these are done I have no excuse not to start the Afghan boards. So they will get started tomorrow. It sounds silly to express the thought that I have been putting them off but I suspect I have at some level of consciousness. Or maybe I am over thinking it.
Other news: Broadside continues to creep towards us. I have this morning contacted Ambush Alley Games and supplied my "Shipping Address" for some "Con support". As mentioned before I have no real idea what this will consist of, but even if just pamphlets it's still worth having as a hand out to anyone at the show and might create a point of discussion with anyone passing by. SO it's all good.
On Monday (After I posted) another trader asked for an invite to the show. Unfortunately as it stands we are on our limit for space. However if anyone drops out we can accommodate them. Additionally we are still waiting for written confirmation from one games club, He's a friend of mine (from university way back in the distant past) so I am granting him some latitude. The other option is that our sponsors "Pen and Sword" who were planning to run 3 games at the show might only be able to manage 2 (they are struggling to arrange the third game). SO we are looking at re-jigging the layout if we need to. In an Ideal world we'd have as many traders and games as we could. Personally I'd put traders ahead of games, but do realise that games are also good as they can help support the traders by showcasing what can be done. I know I have seen a game at a show and thought I'd like to do that and then went looking for a trader who had some of the desired "Shinies!"
I have been reading "Call sign Hades" an account of the Lieutenant in the Royal Irish Regiment and his experiences in Sangin. So far it has been very informative and I have learnt a lot about the conflict from one mans very personal point of view. Some of which I will no doubt bring to the table.
As Rainham club have three meetings before Broadside I have proposed that next time we do some more Force on Force, to embed the rules in our heads. This time I'll introduce IEDs and air strikes and give the Talibs more fire power Given that we have 3 meets left the second game should be something very different so we don't get stale. The Final meet (3rd June) I have invited Fran http://theangrylurker.blogspot.co.uk/ and Ray (http://onelover-ray.blogspot.co.uk/) from Posties Rejects to pop down for a Pre Broadside game. Should anyone else want to come as well let me know and we can probably make it happen.
And finally I have started work on our propose "Zombie Campaign" at the Rainham club. I was wondering where I should set it, England or the States. Fictional or a real city I did even consider "Liberty City" from GTA as I have all the maps and loads of place and character names. but have settled on a setting now. It may be possible IF (and it is a big IF) I get the concept right to get a few people in the Blogosphere to play remotely. But more of this another time. That's today's Post. Thanks for reading. Take care next post on Friday.
