OHIO CLUB SEEKS TO SET WORLD BOARD GAME RECORD AT ORIGINS 2011


Gaming Group Plans Massive Tabletop WWI Dogfight with Popular "Wings of War" Miniatures Game!


COLUMBUS, OHIO (May 11, 2011): An intrepid group of Ohio board game enthusiasts seeks to set a unique world record Saturday, June 25 at the Origins Games Fair in Columbus, Ohio — the largest number of players for a single board game, recreating a spectacular World War I aerial battle on the tabletop with more than 100 participants expected.


The Buckeye Gamers in Flight—a historical aviation gaming club—will be staging the epic air combat in miniature using the popular "Wings of War" board game, a fast-paced, easy-to-learn game that recreates the daring duels in the skies of World War I with beautifully painted, historically accurate aircraft miniatures fully painted and ready to play out of the box. Using a simple card-based maneuver system, players will try to outguess and out fly their opponents as they try to guess each other's moves and line up the shots that will make them the "Ace of Aces!"


The Game is open to up to 140 players who will all participate at the same time, playing to defeat each other in mock aerial combat until only one pilot remains! All interested participants ages 10 to adult are welcome, and no experience is needed — the game is simple to learn and rules will be taught to new players prior to the start of the event. Prizes will be awarded to the top players by the Wings of War Aerodrome. For additional information, visit the Wings of War Aerodrome site at http://www.wingsofwar.org or contact Ken Head at cowman2697 (at) gmail.com.


Members of the Buckeye Gamers in Flight will be running a total of 26 separate events at the Origins Games Fair which runs from June 22nd to June 26th at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Information on the Origins Games Fair can be found at http://www.originsgamefair.com .

A list of the BGIF events can be found at Buckeye Gamers in Flight - Origins 2011 Wings of War Event List on Google


We sincerely hope to see many of you there. Please join us for an awesome time and help us set a new record!

Thanks,

Ken Head
