Just got back from another great game day at the Boeing Museum of Flight. This has been an annual thing for about 10 years or so now. Our good NHMGS president, Kevin Smyth ("A Gamer's Tales" blog), reached out to the museum way back when and somehow gets us in for free on their yearly "Hobby Day". In addition to us getting to host games - we get around 6 or so tables for the morning and afternooon periods - there are also displays from the local scale modellers club, and also the local RC model flying club. This weekend hosted an additional event - the CooperCon, it's a meeting of folks who discuss and share "info" on DB Cooper and his caper. It kind of makes sense to have it there as he did jump out of a Boeing 727 somewhere over the Pacific NW. Anyway, back to the game day - in the morning period I got to play in my buddy Lawrence's game based on the battle at the White River (near present day Auburn) in 1856 between US troops from Fort Steilacoom and the local natives (warriors from the Nisqually, Muckleshoot, Puyallup, and Klickitat tribes). I ran some of the US troops and our side ended up pushing most of the natives back into the wood. The rules used is called Brother Against Brother. The rules seemed to favor our troops as we could charge the natives, but they couldn't charge us. A successful charge to reach within 6" of the enemy forced the enemy to retire 3D10 inches. We also had 30" max range with our muskets and the natives' trade muskets only had a 20" max range. Besides our game in the first period, there was also a Tribal game of "cavemen vs. cavemen". Since I played in a Tribal Game last month at the Veteran's Museum, figured I'd give someone else a chance to try the rules. It was another great looking game put on by David Sullivan ("I Live With Cats" blog). A Wings of War game and a Vietnam bombing campaign game called "Thuds Over Hanoi" were also in the morning period. I played both games in years past so opted to get into the White River game. The afternoon period had a bit fewer games, Kevin ran his Air Race game (always a favorite - and another one I got to play in a few years ago), my buddy James ran a Bolt Action WW1 East Africa game, and another buddy, Wil, hosted a WW2 Soviet vs. German Chain of Command game on the next table. Managed to take a few pictures of the games - also some pictures from the WW1 and WW2 exhibits. I've posted pictures of these exhibits before from previous game days here, but figured it's been awhile so maybe some folks haven't seen them. Oh, and I did get a nice Sheppard's Pie lunch special at the cafe.
