View Full Version : Ahoy from Ottawa Canada - Bruce signing on

07-25-2013, 22:09
Hi "guys"
I have been a member of the WoG site since 20010-ish and participated-in and enjoyed the later evolution of this first excellent game from those brilliant and creative Italian "boys". Our Family & friends gaming group here in Ottawa finished its 3rd season of WoG in summer 2012, and decided to switch to an old favourite BattleTech for our 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons. BUT, we really, really, really want to get our hands on enough SoG "kit" to use it starting in our 2014/15 gaming season.
We have not abandoned WoG and will not abandon BattleTech miniatures gaming after this season, but rather we are just setting them aside for a few years in favour of SoG which we are sure will be a super game ... with appropriate "house rules" where we think they are needed.
Today I advance-ordered 2 starter sets and one of each single ship pack that may be issued this Fall through my most-convenient local gaming shop (The Comic Shoppe). There is no certainty of delivery date as you all well know, but it will happen I'm sure. And then, we (all of us) are going to be learning and enjoying yet another great game together.
Very glad I am to be a member of another excellent Upton/Haij gaming site, and to rejoin many good friends made on the WoG Aerodrome site ... although I'm sure many of you are using different member names from your WoG names.
Looking forward to joining and contributing to the SoG discussions and building-up of this site.
See ya
Bruce from Ottawa ... never made it to Origins 2012 or 13 after all ... life in the form of our 1st grandchild and associated events intervened ... next year, eh.
