I spent a good six hours today at Gen Con 50 – what a great day!
I took a bunch of pics, played two games and bought stuff…
First son shots from the vendor hall – fantasy flight Star Wars X-Wing, Armada releases:
A new game which caught our eye – mythological/ fantasy gladiatorial combat game:
Here is a fortress wall from 4 ground for their fabled realms range. The walls look right for a range of periods and the dimensions felt very usable for ancients to medieval. Very nice piece and their booth was exceedingly busy. I bought this one in a moment of weakness. – it weighed 15 pounds! Check it out on their site.
Another one that caught our attention was Academy Games 878 Vikings. Map board, miniatures, interesting mechanics – good stuff! Bought it.
Mantic had their Walking Dead All-out-war demo up – Inplayed asbRick Grimes and lost…. the boys played each other a couple days later and really enjoyed it.
A caravan game with miniatures – May be tempting.
Saga tables looked very nice.
This Mordheim table caught our eye.
I will add some Sunday photos time permitting.
