Hooray!

FYI - I was told there would be no TOS beer parade this year, so plan accordingly.  Not that you where a huge fan of his goodies anyways, but still....

Did we end up getting room(s) at that one hotel or no?

TOS isn't bringing his stuff?  But, is he coming to play SFB?  or anything else for that matter?

Sorry to say that I can't make it this year. Who knew that chairing the largest sci-fi convention in New England would eat all of my free time for the whole year?!?

On the other hand, I hope y'all consider coming up to my con in January! There is a big gaming scene every year, and I'm running a huge 2-day Indie Expo showcasing independent game developers, comics creators, and makers.

Miss you guys!

All I know, is that if I can squeeze it in I want to visit the Rivers Casino in Schenectady.  Perhaps some poker?  Definitely some Roulette.  If I end up going that is.....Tim?

I am definitely going to the casino, but not what day(s) yet.

To answer Negative Zero's question, I'm pretty sure both me and Marcus got rooms.

Thanks for the players that turned out for the Battleground events at Council this weekend, we had a great time as always!  And thanks to Dave Cheng and the Council of 5 Nations staff for providing yet another excellent event this year.  My current schedule won't permit me to post detailed reports of the games, but I will get an overview of both events up later this week.

Cheers!

I'm looking forward to hearing about it!  Especially Tim's Zero-CA Persia army...

I played against that army.  It was 15 units.

I actually won the fight because as Marcus said....."I brought the beef".  However, it's a very tedious fight because of all of the units.  I also think that I would of lost if Ron rolled a bit better with his archery....That being said, my spear fix and my ranged rules brought the effectiveness of this combo of units back down to earth and it was still a close game.
