Follow-up to Geek Weekend (tm)

All and all, one of the stranger Geek Weekends.  It all started at 5:45am on Friday when I showed up to the grand Walla Walla Airport for one of the two flights to Seattle; only to find out it was cancelled.  The afternoon/evening flight from the night before had some mechanical issues and only made it as far as Yakima before they had to put down.  Quick trip home, time spent with the kids, and back to the airport for the noon flight.  I landed at 7pm, had some dinner, and then started in on the games.

Went to sleep around 2am (this will be a running theme for the weekend)... and got up to go see the new batman movie.

Back to the Palace of Geekdom, more games.  We went to Game Kastle, back to the house for even more games.  There was some strangeness with one of our friends involving his family...

Up way too late playing Battlestar Gallactica.  Up too early for more gaming on Sunday, up way too late on Sunday, up again on Monday morning, two more games in before lunch and the flight home.

I believe there will be no gaming updates for a little bit - OFCC is next weekend and then I'm off for Europe for two weeks for work... there may be some random travel updates if anyone is interested.

Geek Weekend!

Packing the bags for a 4 days-3 night geek weekend.  Mad prop to the wife who's left home with the kid (I'm so going to owe her - I'm going to Europe for a work trip for about 2.5 weeks in August).  Pictures and details will follow via the phone.

1-0 with 6th edition... so far

Played a quick and dirty game of 6th with my Eldar vs. a Dante-led Descent of Angels list.  I say DoA - but... it's not really possible anymore.  It was Dante, Librarian Dread, Furioso Dread, Sang Priest x2, 4x5 Sang Guard, and 2 Storm Ravens.  We played the "Heavy can hold" mission on the deployment zone where you start on the short sides.

It was interesting.  We know we did lots wrong (oddly enough, not much wrong in wound allocation).

I'm not too worried about getting 6th down till after OFCC first weekend in August.
