This one's for the books. Unusually high attendance of WFB players came that day with both Saturday and Sunday WFB regulars playing or just passing through. In fact, the attendance was big enough to even hold an impromptu mini-tourney based on the numbers. It was just ironic that NG Galleria was scheduled to close early at 6pm (scheduled company Christmas party) when there are so many players who would want to put some games in. Attendees that day were as follows:
1. Lito (who I understand has left earlier when I arrived)
5. Ian (looking at prospect of crossing over to Fantasy next year)
6. Kim (only passing the time while waiting for the Commander-in-Chief )
14. Obi (40k player crossing over to Fantasy using Orcs and Goblins!)
Some results that day:
Emcee (Brets) vs. Ryan (Brets) - Result: Ryan's Bretonnians win this Balikatan Exercise
Ryan (Brets) vs. Romy (Dark Elves) - Result: Ryan's Bretonnians prevailed over the Dark Elves today
Ronald (Vampire Counts) vs. Jun (Chaos Khorne) - Result: Vampire Counts win!
Clarence (Vampire Counts) vs. Obi (Orcs and Goblins) - Result: Clarence wins in Obi's first ever WFB game!
Obi just got his push in the right direction in the WFB scene courtesy of Clarence (newly designated WFB newbie rapist? ). Don't worry Dude, everybody falls the first time (take it from a guy who's used to falling. ) Ian has shown interest in starting WFB (maybe Brets *shiver*) and got Ronald (WFB grizzled cheezy veteran) giving the backgrounder and subtle differences between WFB and WH40k game systems well into the night (Ian's interest really got Ronald on a roll. )
The atmosphere was festive that afternoon despite the thought that NG will close early, thanks to Gelo's words of wisdom (and stealthy exit I might add ). Ended up with a game of billiards with some of the guys who wanted to get even before we called it a day. No official scores were tracked by the guys after my 10th straight win. OT: Mental note to restudy my billiard game. I think I'm losing my edge...
