      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

International Tabletop Gaming Day

25 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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.

Man...

If I could make it...

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.

I made a showing at my store for ITGD... Played a 100 point game as Imperials, and won. Then the 3 missions from the starter set as Imperials. Won the Senator mission, then Luke got away, and finally my TIE's got shot down trying to collect the Satellites. Then 4 more nrml 100 point games, and won all those. A full day of X-wing, and I came home wanting more... LOL.

 

Cheers

Ended up not playing with my friend as intended, but basically teaching/demoing to three guys between the two of us, so it turned out good.

IEP: Individualized Education Plan.  Here in the States, the Federal government forces schools to implement individual plans for students who struggle in school.  The paperwork required for this process is long, repetetive, and generally obnoxious.  The paperwork process requires so much time that other parts of instruction get less attention.  In essence, teachers spend more time filling out government paperwork to prove that they are working, leaving less time for them to be teachers.
