This was my first convention in quite a while where I was a Game Judge. I have to say I did miss it. (The last time I did this was at Historicon in 2007 but that was a whole different game. )
Well being a trainer, I am always in front of a group of folks, so that isn't it. I paint damn near every day, so, no again. It really appeals to my geeky organizational side. I loved these things:
- Researching a battle, or topic
- Painting towards a goal (this required a lot of discipline due to a bit of ADD in my painting concentration!)
GamesGame one: Friday night
My buddy Nick Johnson ran a British/Taliban scenario which was fun to help with, here are some pics on that one:
Game two: Saturday morning
Chechen Scenario, it was added at the last minute, but no one showed.
Game Three: Saturday afternoon
Take that Hill! Great scenario using the Twilight:2000 rule set as a scenario setting. I used to love the RPG, so thought it would translate well to a game. Father/son team kicked some serious butt in this one.
Game Four: Saturday night
Nick did another game where I got to play the Taliban. Almost ran off with 5 Brit bodies, we light them hardcore.
Game Five: Sunday morning
Chechens roughed up the Russians good, but given another two turns the Russians would have taken the Parliment house!
All in all a very busy weekend, but it was worth it.
More to come.
