    It sure is.



  • @IWNGU

    In your opinion, what are the top five games that you would consider a must play at the convention?

    @IWNGU

    In your opinion, what are the top five games that you would consider a must play at the convention?

    Ohhh, tough question.  There are so many great games!

    If we remove Axis and Allies (any flavor) from the equation and look at the lesser played games only the list may look something like this;

    Tsuro
    Tobago
    Ikusa
    Merchants and Marauders
    Dominion

    And for the more well known games perhaps add;

    Star Wars X-Wing Fighters Miniatures
    Rules of Engagement Miniatures
    Munchkin
    Settlers of Catan

    It’s a tough call.  Just looking at the FMGCon library games list it’s hard to pick out a top 5 (or even a top 10)!


  • 2020 2019 Sponsor 2018 2017 '16 '12

    The more I sit here and think about it, the more I can’t decide what “must play” games would hit the top 5!

    Oh, the decisions!

    Perhaps it would be best to make a list of what games I (Rorschach of IWNGU) would like to play personally at FMGCon 2013?  Of course any top 5 (or 10, or 20) is biased by personal opinion so this is probably the best way to do it;

    Tsuro
    Puerto Rico
    Tobago
    Ikusa
    Settlers of Catan
    Ticket to Ride
    Aquire
    Merchants and Marauders
    Carcassonne
    Revolution
    Munchkin/Munchkin Apocalypse/Munchkin Zombies
    Dominion
    Warhammer 40,000
    Rules of Engagement
    Star Wars X Wing Fighter
    Formula D

    That’s a pretty big list!  And I’m sure there will be more.  Personally I am avoiding A&A at this years con as we play it fairly regularly anyway and I’d like to take the opportunity to play non-standard games.



  • What about Flames of War? Anyone into playign Flames of War at this? I can bring “Open Fire” (the starter set). Dying to play buthaven’t had a chance yet.

    We have not yet had a FoW setup at the con (though there was a local store owner who was supposed to bring one last year and never did), but I’m sure someone would be willing to give it a try with you!



  • I’ll bring it along just in case. It intrigues me, I’ll be brushed up on it by the time the convention rolls around  😉 (and yes there were 2 puns in that sentence)



  • It wont be to much longer before its here

    Yep yep!  Get registered people!  Remember the prizes from last year?  There are even MORE this year!  With even more games planned alongside all the pickup games.

    Plus, let’s not forget there will not only be the tank demo but tank RIDES available!


  • 2020 2019 Sponsor 2018 2017 '16 '12

    More sponsors have jumped on the bandwagon!

    Warlord Games (www.warlordgames.com) has sent us a box set of their “Bolt Action Miniatures : Assault on Normandy” game.  A complete WW2 miniatures game in a box!  As we already have WW2 miniatures games that will be set up ready to play (including the Bolt Action miniatures rules) this is likely to be given away as a prize … how still to be determined.

    Steve Jackson Games (repeat sponsor!) has sent some great stuff for the games library.

    Fantasy Flight Games (repeat sponsor!) has sent along some more as well!

    Check out www.fmgcon.com for a list of what games will be available for public use in the FMGCon Games Library and to start or sign up for a game ahead of time!

    Remember, space is limited to the first 100 registrants!  I know it’s still a few months away but we’ll keep reminding people.  😉

    @Craig:

    We’re hoping to snag a ‘celebrity’ guest attendee or two…

    Wait a second?!?!?!?! 😮 😮 😮

    I don’t rate as at least a “B”-lister in the A&A community? 😢

    You are an “A” in my books….  the biggest AAA “celebrity” that I have ever defeated in Battle  8-)

    Jeremy

    You beat whom???  I don’t remember any such thing!!!

    Actually, all I really remember about that game of AA50 was the young guy who was playing Italy kept leaving and coming back.  I remember more about the multiple Acquire games and the Agricola game that we played.  Also, I think we played Cosmic Encounter.

    Must have been the Sleeman’s!!!

    😄  Very historical game…  The Germans always complaining about the Italians…



  • So who here is coming for sure? I know Suprise Attack is 100% and staying at my place for the weekend, what about Vance, Joel, and Bernard?


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Well in lieu of the financial predicament I am working through ($10,000 from start to finish) I am not yet sure if FMG will be viable for me this year or not.

    However, as I have received overwhelming support from this community… if coming out there is possible, I will.

    We would 1000% understand.  However your presence on the Battlefield will be missed.

    I’ll be there. Ray’s been looking forward to it and we’re hoping to bring Mugzy up as well so the whole Dicetruction crew should be present.

    Awesome!  The more the merrier, obviously!  🙂



  • Lets all rally around this event!!!
    The clock is ticking closer and closer….I cant wait!
    Send out P.M.'s to every one that attended last year
    S.A.

    Once again there will be real TANKS at this event.  Not gate guards but actual moving vehicles to keep it interesting.  In addition I have been informed by the 420 Wing that there will be a Battle of Britain ceremony on site for Sunday with Band and March Past.

    All very cool…

    Play War games while you enjoy the History alive around you!

    Yeek.  You will cram 100 people into that tiny little hall shown in the gallery???  Or has the venue changed from what was shown for last year?


  • '12

    Strong possibility myself and two Toronto pals I haven’t played with in ages will be there. Just need to work out the details. Excelsior!

    Yrs.,
    R.



  • I think there is room for everybody, and theres another room too. I don’t know if its off limits to us.
    Only about 5 more weeks!!!



  • Even though the cap is 100 and we may get there… It’s a weekend event, so realistically… there won’t be that many in the hall at one time.
