And as mentioned, a lot of the German tabletop community joined in this event, so you've seen some that you've met at other shows earlier this year. Rhein Main Tabletop brought their Battlefleet Gothic table with them, along with a set up for Aggro, a hooligan skirmish. The hosts themself showed among other tables, their […]
As promised, I headed down into the "Palz" to Meckenheim, to visit the Ad Arma Convention 2019. New location, moved from the Sportshall in Speyer to the Gymnasium in Meckenheim. Parking was a bit of an issue, if you came a bit late, you had to park along side the road or on the otherside […]

Well this past weekend was "Spring Fling 2019", one of the largest Guild Ball tournaments in the US and it was out in Ashburn, VA and my son and I made the drive out for the weekend. The event was scheduled for 4 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday, unfortunately after Saturday was over my son and I were both 1-3 and he was leaning towards heading home on Sunday morning instead of playing 2 more games. The drive with stops is about 11 hours, so I also did not mind coming home at a decent hour instead of 3:00 AM Monday morning.As I said we both finished 1-3 for the event. I had 3 very fun games (yes only 3 of 4), my first game against Mortician's was like one of my previous games against Alchemists. The Morticians hid all in a corner all grouped together dropping rough grounds, -4" charge AOE's, -4" MOV plays and it was just no fun standing there not being able to do anything. I do understand it is a tournament and it is do what you can at all costs to win, so he did. I
Due to the so-so weather, I didn't take the scenic route through the Taunus towards Nidderau, just north-east of Frankfurt, but the Autobahn. Because once again and for the 7th time, the Tabletop Club Rhein-Main hosted their Rhein-Main Multiversum at the Willi-Salzmann hall during the whole weekend. The event has grown a bit since last […]
Lest We Forget
Back in 2018, I attended SkyCon in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. This multifaceted convention featured “analog” gaming of all types. From The post Wrapping up SkyCon 2018 appeared first on Must Contain Minis [MCM].
This weekend, on saturday and sunday, April 27th and 28th 2019, the Rhein-Main-Multiversum will be held at Nidderau. I've been there for the first time last year to the 6th event hosted by the Tabletop Club Rhein Main e.V. and was very satisfied with the event. It is close to Frankfurt, so very central in […]
Lots happened at Havoc 2019. We played a game recreating the raid on Deerfield, Massachusetts during Queen Anne’s War. We spent time chatting with Trevor Attridge of Breachstorm. We also had a great interview of GMT Games designer Mark G. McLaughlin.

The Renegade Open is another gaming convention that takes place up in Minneapolis Minnesota, and 2019 will be it's 7th year.I have been contemplating on this event only because Warfaire Weekend (formerly Warmachine Weekend) also takes place in November. Warfaire Weekend this year is changing formats from strictly Warmachine/Hordes to an overall convention (which is what the Renegade Open also is).So my funds will not allow me to attend both events in the same month (plus my wife would not be too pleased) so my son and I had to pick one.Our decision is for the Renegade Open, the main reason is that there will be 3 days of Batman Miniature Gaming, The following is from the Renegade Open website:Bat-Fans, let the hype begin! The Renegade Open is November 22-24, and I am running THREE events this year! Friday will be a 250 rep Batmatch, Saturday will be the premier 350 rep, 4-round Batmatch, and Sunday will be a doubles tournament using my Dynamic Duos rules.Details to come on June 1st when tickets go
On a rather delightfully warm Saturday morning, I found myself once again trekking to the hallowed tabletop show that is Salute. Once again the tabletop masses descended unto the London Excel for Salute 2019. Grab [...] The post Salute 2019 – Another Year, Another Wonderful Show appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Well, last week was a pretty good week for me especially with AdeptiCon 2019 and I was able to get another model completed ('Steeljaw') before we left for the event.Games played last week was really good too (obviously with a convention), I managed to play 8 games last week, which is not really that much, but I did not want to stress myself over the weekend.Here is just a quick recap of AdeptiCon 2019 for my son and I, you can go back for a little bit more detail here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4Wednesday: This was mainly just a travel day for us with badge check-in later in the evening.Thursday: Vendor Hall shopping followed by 2 games of Guild Ball in the Early Bird Open.Friday: This became an off day for me with a demo game of Aristeia! and a friendly game of Guild Ball vs Alex Botts. I was originally signed up for X-Wing and I would have played in X-Wing if my son was also signed up, but this was his day to play Batman Miniatures Game.Saturday: This was 4 games of Guild Ball in the AdeptiCon Champion
Well first off, Happy Birthday to me! yep today is my 45th Birthday and I spent the entire day playing in the AdeptiCon Guild Ball Championships.The event started at 10:00 AM and after 4 games my son and I were ready to call it a day. With 38 players registered, it was going to be a 6 Round event.I started off my Game 1 vs an acquaintance Ray from Michigan, and his Butcher's managed to beat my Butcher's 12-8 and it was a very fun game. I enjoy starting off tournaments against people I know.Game 2 was another mirror matchup vs Max from Wisconsin. This game Max totally controlled me and he easily won 12-0. I started off 0-2 and my son was sitting 1-1.Game 3 I got to play Justin from Indiana playing Fisherman (who actually I have met once at our South Bend store) and I actually pulled out a 12-4 win (even with a Goal by the Butcher's.Game 4 was against another Fisherman Guild played by Doug (who my son had beaten earlier), Doug had managed to get the win on me 12-4 but 'Shank' had m
Friday was Day 3 for AdeptiCon and it did not go as scheduled for myself. My son went downstairs early for his Batman Miniatures Game tournament and I was heading down an later and I was entered in the X-Wing System Open Qualifier. At the last minute I decided to bail out on the event and continue to check out the vendor hall.I wanted to get in a demo game of Arestia! from Corvus Belli, so one of the founders of Corvus Belli, Carlos game taught me how to play the game. This was the game I was eyeing before coming to AdeptiCon as a quick play game to have done within an hour. I enjoyed the game a lot, so stay tuned next week for some posts about it.When I was done with the vendor hall for the morning, I decided to head upstairs for lunch and a quick break before heading back down with my Guild Ball stuff. If someone was going to ask to play, I might as well get a game in.While watching my friend Josh play a friendly with his Fisherman's Guild, Alex Botts (World's #1 Player) asked
Day 2 for AdeptiCon has come and gone. Today was going to be our shopping day with a little bit of gaming.The vendor hall opened up at 10:00 AM and we were downstairs right when it opened. We walked up and down each aisle just handing my wallet to every vendor we see, not really but we did purchase a lot. Mainly I was able to purchase the items I needed with once exception. It seems like each year there is always a new game I want to get into, well just before AdeptiCon I was eyeing a new game and I did make the purchase, I am saving that post for when I arrive back home.Some of the vendors we did purchase from were : Broken Egg Games (Tharn CID and Destiny tokens), Muse On Minis (Miners, Cooks. New Captain tokens), Army Painter (washers), and some terrain for Batman Miniatures Game (dumpsters and bus stop).Once shopping was completed it was time to get ready for the Guild Ball Early Bird Open. With then event starting at 3:00 PM, we had a feeling we would only be playing 2 games
