A Funny thing Happened on the Road to Damascus -Pre-Registration on this game is CLOSED
Its hot! So hot you can see the camels sweat. But here you are in this stinking border town of Canus Minor…”Dogtown” to the locals. The only claim to fame of this miserable little one chariot town is that its far enough south of Palmyra to avoid too much attention from Imperial authorities, and too far west to be looted by desert bandits. It’s the perfect place for a man to earn an honest (!?) living on both sides of the frontier, or to live in the shadows and not draw too much attention to himself. As a result, it has become a magnet for every smuggler, hustler, charlatan, snake oil salesman, magician, holy man, or people with secrets to keep. In other words, its an opportunity!
Dan Hutter presides over the lying, bribing, cheating and back stabbing for 8 to 16 players in this Ancient pulp adventure skirmish game in 28mm using his "Roma Victa" rules
A Song of Ice and Fire drop in
Come and try out an exciting new game from CMON. "A Song of Ice and Fire :- the miniatures game" is a quick playing large battle system. It has some very basic and easy to remember rules, great miniatures with quick resolutions, but is also deep in tactical and strategic options galore due to a hand of faction specific cards. The game also has unique tactics board where non combat characters fight for position in the court of the King which adds flavor in the form of some behind the scenes back stabbing (in true Game of thrones fashion).

This setup will be for anyone interested in trying out the system and for those who just want to get a quick game in. We will be running 2 games side by side on the same table. One will be a fully painted battle pitching the stubborn north men from house Stark vs the proud but scheming House Lannister forces. Another table will be showing off the game (in its pure unpainted form) to anyone who wants to just stop by and try it out for themselves without commitment to stay.

Derek and Lauren Hall host this 32mm fantasy game for 4 to 6 players.
