    Default Looking forward to Sunday

    I have some of the guys from my Model Club coming over for a ‘game day’. We plan on having three setups SoG, WoG WWI/WW2 and X Wing. My wife is making Chili and we have various snacks etc. The only rule is NO DRINKS ON THE GAME TABLES....I shudder to think what a spilt can of Coke would do to all those maneover cards and the game mats. Should be a blast.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Some pics of the mayhem. While all of us are pretty well versed on WoG, Sog is very new to most of the guys so we played a basic game to get them used to ship handling etc...everyone enjoyed it and of course they now want to buy the game.....a real shame Ares havent seen fit to re-issue the core set.

    WoG first (hope thats ok posting them here)

    The french players had a tough time of it because we were using variable wind and almost immediately they had it against them and it stayed that way for the rest of the battle.

    In this case each side lost one ship so we declared it a draw as people had to get home.

    No problem posting our sister game here Steve.
    It is good to see some of your friends starting on the long voyage of discovering Sails.
    Well done for getting them interested at least. Hopefully we will get some more Starter sets before we all go to Davey Jones's Locker.

    Just as long as you didn't post X-Wing pictures

    Actually one of the groups I game with uses the X-Wing maneuver system for WoG instead of the cards. I have not tried it yet but it looks interesting.
