A Day of Gaming

So yesterday I spent the entire day gaming with my oldest son.  We arrived a Talons Hideout when they opened at 10:00 am and stayed until 2:00 am.  I promised my son an entire day of gaming since I will be missing his 13th birthday and heading to Las Vegas for the GT.

We got some Lord of the Rings games in, and then he played some Warmachine with other players there.

While he was playing Warmachine, Ian had swung by and we got a game of Fantasy Battles in.  It was my first Fantasy game in 4 years, and the first with 7th Edition.  I had a great time playing and shaking off the cobwebs.  Ian was playing Orks with no Magic, and I was playing my Dwarves (obviously with no magic).  So with both of us without Magic, it was Move, Shoot, Combat, which I enjoyed.  I was never a fan of the Magic phase.  Well the Dwarves prevailed and like I said had a fun game against Ian.

Later in the evening, another friend of mine Gyan had showed up.  Gyan came by so I can teach how to play LotR and so we can get a game of 40K in.  In LotR he played my Wood Elves and my son played his Gondor force.  For Gyan’s first game he took down Gondor and seemed to enjoy himself.  Afterwards he says he will be building a Rivendell army.

After the LotR game, Gyan and I threw down for some 40K.  This was going to be my first game at 5th Edition.  I needed to get some practice games before 9/20/08 since thats when the next 40k Tourney I’ll be attending.  We played “Capture and Control on a Pitched Battlefield”.  Gyan was playing his Dark Angels Deathwing and I was playing my Dark Angels as Vanilla Marines.  The game ended up being a Draw.  It was fun playing Gyan, but it was an alright game.  Only because now everything gets a 4+ save.  Even tanks.

Well 2:00 am came around and it was a long day and time to get home.
