Chris Palmer This past weekend 6 members of the the HAWKs (Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers) made a road trip down to the NASHCON gaming convention near Nashville, TN, to host over a dozen games. We were up early Thursday morning to load a 12-passenger van we had rented full of all our gaming equipment and suitcases, and we arrived at the convention hotel late that night after a 12 hour drive from Maryland. We were up early again Friday to unpack our van and set up for our afternoon and evening games. We ran 5 games on Friday, and you can read about them here.
Saturday we were back to the convention room bright and early to begin a full day of gamemastering. In the morning slot, Buck Surdu ran a Napoleonic game using “Fate of Battle” rules. The scenario was the Battle of Mincio Feb. 8, 1814.
I once again ran my Battle of Five Armies game using “Bear Yourselves Valiantly” (BYV) rules. You can read a report about all the BYV games here.
On the third HAWKs table, Don Hogge and Greg Priebe ran a “Muskets and Tomahawks” game.
In the afternoon slot Duncan Adams ran a WWII game, The Battle of Maissin Aug. 22, 1914, using a modified combination of “Look, Sarge, No Charts: WWII” and “A Union So Tested” rules
At the same time, Dave Wood was running a fantasy game called Rescue the Prince using BYV rules. You can read about it at the BYV report link above.
And, in the same time slot Don and Greg were running a second session of “Muskets and Tomahawks”
We wrapped up the evening with two games. The first was Dave’s ancients battle featuring Romans vs Germanic Barbarians, again using BYV.
The second game was a 10 player GASLIGHT Undersea Extravaganza run by Buck and myself. You can read a full report on the game here.
This was our second year at NASHCON, and once again we had a great time. We want to thank the organizers and all the gamers who dropped by to play or just say “hi” for showing us such hospitality. We will be sure to return again in the future.
