Daily Chronicle: 1 Day Till The NOVA Open

In 24 hours we should just about be pulling into the Hyatt Regency Crystal City and checking in for the 2018 NOVA Open.  We are leaving tonight and driving straight through, so tomorrow is going to be a very long day playing right into the Warmachine/Hordes Team Tournament.  Luckily I do not take tournaments too seriously and I am just playing for fun.  Who knows, maybe after 2-3 rounds we may retire (but we will have to see with our teammate first).Am I ready for the events? Not really...but who cares if I win or lose, lets just through some dice.  Saturday and Sunday events I am really looking forward to ("Breakfastmachine" and "Speedmachine") these events do not take the whole day and leaves some time to do some other things.  I am still glad I dropped the Guild Ball event on Friday to open a day of gaming (I am even bringing a few Batman miniatures and may do a quick demo).I plan on posting some pics each night when I get back to the room, we shall see how that goes...stay tuned..

TSA Barbeque... and Bugman's Bar

On the 25th, the annual TSA barbeque took place at the clubhouse.Combined on a playing saturday, we hosted about 50 people for a fest of burned meat and raw veggies.While me and Nemesis took this opportunity to try out Kill Team, there was also a Frostgrave game and a cycling game going on before we sat down for foodies.In which Nemesis wasn't to be beaten and he was the very first locked and loaded...Afterwards, our table pulled up Bugman's Bar, the boardgame by Games Workshop in which a bunch of drunken Dwarves tried to bring food and drinks to their table in the chaos of a barfight, so that was quite a fitting game for the evening.Mike took the victory against his family, Noshi, Heikki and Nemesis, while I taped a 15 minute or such action tape around the middle of the game.  Yes, it's in dutch, and at some comments it might be better that perhaps you don't actually understand what is said if your not fluent in the Antwerp dialect xD.Another nice sit together it was, and one of those chances to have so

Weekly Chronicle #34 2018 (NOVA Open Week)

Well I finally made it to the week of the NOVA Open.  The NOVA Open starts in just under 3 days, and we will actually be leaving this coming Wednesday night.  All my Warmachine Khador lists have been uploaded to Conflict Chamber (just waiting on some more in to come in so I can finish printing them), my Arena Rex models/terrain is all packed and ready to go for some friendly games (although there are no official Arena Rex events at NOVA Open, we are hoping there will be some space available for a few games), and my shopping list is ready for the event.  That list is not too long or expensive, just depends if we decide to pick up the new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game Rules Manual, or wait until we get back home and pick it up at my son's store.Unfortunately this past week I did not get in any practice games of Warmachine/Hordes, I only have one more night available and that would be tonight, we'll see how that goes.  Last Friday night my son and I did get in a game of Arena Rex, althoug

Daily Chronicle: Dragon Fall 2018 (Oct 19th-21st)

There is a fairly new convention in the Chicagoland area called Dragon Fall   Dragon Fall 2018 will be taking place the weekend of October 19th-21st 2018 at the Waterford Banquet and Conference Center in Elmhurst IL.  Dragon Fall is going into their 4th year and they claim to be “Midwest’s Premier Tabletop Gaming Event”, I guess with AdeptiCon now claiming to be the “World’s Premier Wargaming Convention” is was ok for Dragon Fall to claim the Midwest.I have yet to attend a Dragon Fall convention, in it’s first year 2015, I was still living in Arizona.  Then in 2016 I had to go back down to Arizona to visit my son since it is his birthday weekend.  Last year in 2017, my wife flew down to Arizona for the same birthday visit (and I was home with the puppy) and now in 2018, I may actually attend for one day.Dragon Fall offers a full weekend of gaming, but I had noticed in the events listings that there was no Warmachine/Hordes events.  I am actually ok w
