Allan you forgot to mention that you didn't randomise your Grudge Thrower hits on my Dreadlord and his poor Dragon.
True, though I rolled the wounds the way you told me that it worked.  We should have stopped and checked the rules on that one.

I also think that you were using the stepping up rules incorrectly, as you can only do it against a unit that is to the front of you. That is why it took my Cold Ones, Witch Elves and the Corsairs with my Master to finish those stubborn runts off.
I'm working through the rules again with a highlighter and I think we played it right.  My warriors on the flank fought your warriors on the flank and all my step-up attacks were directed towards the unit in the front.

More or less wounds still wouldn't have affected my Break Tests since I was Stubborn (though I'll concede that it may have ended the combat a round sooner - if we played it wrong it).

Hi everyone,

Strategy Saturday is coming up this Thanksgiving Weekend.  Usually we postpone it a week but this year I'll be in Calgary at FallCon.  So October the 9th it is.

My offer is still open to anyone who would like to feature a game from their collection.  We almost had a Feature Game demoed by someone other then me, but it didn't work out this month.  Hopefully next month.  So with that said I've taken a look into my collection for something that isn't too long and decided on Havoc .  This is a cool card game that re-creates the 100 Years War between England and France based around a poker mechanic (BUT it's not poker!  :D).

As usual, we'll be getting together from 7pm-midnight in the basement of Argyle Road Baptist Church (3510 Argyle Rd).  Again we'll have our snack counter open so feel free to contribute a drink or something to munch on.  And feel free to bring along friends.

Hope to see you there,

Allan
(along with Michael and Barry)

After playing Dean I had a game with Maeson (both were played at FRAG's September Games Day).  Our game turned out to be an interesting affair.  His Dark Elves and my Dwarfs played a Meeting Engagement in amongst an abandoned town (where would have everyone gone??).  I had the same list as my earlier game against Dean and after some deliberation decided to hunker down in the corner of my deployment zone and just hope that I would end up getting some line-of-sight targets for my war machines.  Maeson ended up going for a quick rush attack on my left flank rather then skulking through town.  It was not a bad choice.  Unfortunately he didn't count on my stubborn Hammerers holding up his entire attack (it took a total of 4 DE units to slaughter them to a man).  All the while my unblessed stone throwers (no runes!) had amazing pinpoint accuracy dropping hit after hit on the DE general and dragon.  And to add to the despondency, not one DE spell was able to be cast (can't count on that next time!).  These three element spelled the doom for the DE incursion and as the rest of the Dwarf army closed in for the kill it became clear that this was not the day to dance with the short, ugly guys.

Yeah, Wednesday at Comic Readers, 2500 pts.  I can probably get there by 5:30 or so.  Does that work?

OK, so the new WHFB starter box is out and I'm sure that there are a good number of people who:

  • Want the Skaven
  • Want the Elves
  • Want the Rule Book

I can say for myself that I'm interested in getting my hands on at least one rule book and a few batches of the Elves.  I haven't bought the starter box yet but would be happy to do so and simple exchange the Skaven for Elves to somebody who is appropriately sneaky.  Or maybe we could come to another agreement.

So if you're a Skaven-type and don't want the pointy ears cramping your style, drop me a note and maybe you'll end up with some more vermin.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the late notice about this coming Strategy Saturday.  Stuff happens.  However, despite what may all be going on there is no denying that this weekend is the second weekend of September so it's time for another edition of Strategy Saturday.

I have a number of announcements to make:

1.  The Feature Game is going to be ... (drum roll - oh, and don't hold your breath Dwayne) ... Brass!  Besides the fact that I love this game there is another reason why I'm featuring it yet again.  Next month I'll be moderating it at FallCon in Calgary and I need to brush up on my teaching it.  So if you've never had a chance to play this gem be sure to contact me since there is only room for 4 players (unless of course one of our other attendees has a good heart and brings another copy).

2.  Next month the second Saturday falls on Thanksgiving weekend.  Usually we bump Strategy Saturday to the following weekend when it comes to holidays.  However the following weekend I'll be at FallCon, then the weekend after that is FRAG's Games Day and the last weekend is Hallowe'en.  So that means we'll be running Strategy Saturday on Thanksgiving weekend after all, on October 9th.  I hope you can make it.

3.  I send out a monthly email just to remind people of the upcoming Strategy Saturday.  If you'd like the convenience of receiving a quick reminder in you Inbox (usually around a week in advance), just drop me a PM and include your name and email, and I'll happily put you on my mailing list.

My offer is still open to anyone who would like to feature a game from their collection.  Contact me if your interested.

As usual, we'll be getting together from 7pm-midnight in the basement of Argyle Road Baptist Church (3510 Argyle Rd).  Again we'll have our snack counter open so feel free to contribute a drink or something to munch on.  And feel free to bring along friends.

Hope to see you there,

Allan

STRATEGY SATURDAY VENUE INFORMATION

Description
Strategy Saturday started in the fall of 2004 and is a once a month evening of board games.  It is generally held the second Saturday of each month.  Sometimes the date moves around a bit due to the facility being unavailable that weekend, it being a holiday weekend, or the organizers being simply unavailable.  That all said, it still is generally the second Saturday of the month.

Hours of Operation
7 pm until midnight (or there abouts) once a month.  We have an open door policy so feel free to come later or leave early.  Just know that if you come late you may end up waiting a bit to get in on a game.

Collection of Games Available for Use
If you do not wish to bring a game, no worries, there are always plenty of games available.

Age Limits
This is an event that is open to all ages.  We only ask that if a young person attends that they have the ability to stay focused on the game they join.  We leave it up to the parents to make this evaluation.

Cost
It's FREE!

We have a snack counter where people contribute a drink or something to munch on.  If you haven't brought something we still want you to feel at home so don't be afraid to help yourself.

Parking
There's plenty of parking available along the street or if you prefer in back in the church's parking lot.

Feature Game
This is something that was started a few years ago.  Each month we have a game that will be guaranteed to be taught and played.  This Featured Game is started at the beginning of the evening so if you want a seat at the table, you'll want to arrive on time.  If you know you'll be running a little bit late or you just want to guarantee yourself a spot, post you're intentions and we'll reserve you a seat.

Also, we are always encourage others run the Feature Game with one of their own games.  Maybe it's a new game you just got and can't wait to try it out or its a old favourite that just doesn't see the light of day like it should.  PM me and I'll be happy to see what arrangements we can make.

Things You Should Know
  • Have fun. This is a family friendly evening.  So conduct yourself accordingly.
  • There are always lots of games available for use.
  • Bring a friend. Bring a game. Bring both.
