International Tabletop Gaming Day is tomorrow, Saturday April 5th, 2014.  Anyone going to the local game store to promote X-wing miniatures?  I know I am!  Store owner asked me to use his demo set.  Hopefully we can recruit some great people into the addiction.

I'll be attending my shop's meet, but no X-Wing or miniatures games this morning since they dominate the typical weekend lineups of what is normally done anyway. Luckily my league starts at the end of this month, so I can finally play regularly! :3

We'll be playing at the local store. It's a good chance to try out the mission that came with Imperial Aces, and hopefully show off to some new potential players!

well sadly I will not go. Because:

A) you need a store somewhere near you...

B) I have loads of correction work lying around to fix

A) Libraries, books stores, coffee shops, mall cafeterias work too.

B) IEPs and such were put on hold.  Sounds like you need a TA/student teacher.

I'll be at my FLGS, demoing X-Wing from 12 to 2:30, then Sentinels of the Multiverse from 3 to 5, and then Firefly the boardgame from 5 to 7.

 

 

It's going to be a looooong day, but a fun one.

Well here in the Netherlands wargaming is not a mainstream or widely accepted hobby so by the time I would be halfway through explaining what I'd want to do they'd either have laughed me out of the place or called the cops on me...

 

I really have no idea what an IEP is meant to be sorry. And on the subject of TA's or student teachers: you might be right :-)

Went to my local store today and it was closed. I was really disappointed because according to the international table top website they were running an event.

I went along to my local event with the intention of having my first ever game of X-Wing, but didn't see any being played. Instead I got to try out several boardgames which I've never played before (including Settlers of Catan), so it wasn't a great loss.


Imperial: 5x TIE/LN, 3x TIE/IN, 3x TIE/sa, 1x TIE/x1, 1x TIE/D, 1x TIE Phantom, 2x Lambda, 1x Firespray, 1x VT-49
Rebel: 4x X-Wing, 1x Y-Wing, 2x A-Wing, 1x B-Wing, 1x YT-1300, 1xYT-2400

Pending: 1x HWK-290, 1xTIE/x1, 1x Raider

The store manager at my FLGS asked if I could demo X-Wing, so I am! Good thing I have multiples of nearly everything :P

I tried a new way to introduce X-Wing.

 

 

I set up several 30ish point ships, a couple each of several types of ships with an upgrade or two. The idea was that if there were two people playing and someone else came along and wanted to play, they could just choose a ship and join in. I think it worked pretty well. Showed several Warhammer players how easy it is to pick up, anyway.
