Rob and I were there for the duration. The summer heat must have kept a few people away, but the airconditioning was fine.

What did you play? What did you see played? Did someone crash into your plane during the Wings of Glory tournament?

Rob and I had three brave volunteers join us in this fine game even though we hadn't punched it or read the rules.

Turns out, Cauldron just about teaches itself and I think we all had a terrific time.

After all the planes had come in to land,and all the Cauldrons had been stirred, with not long to go, Rob and I and Ariaflame started to try to get a feel for the Gallerist.

We muddled along but then got a big boost when Warren came over kindly and talked us through some of it.

We ran through a couple of turns, and it started to chug along. This will help us for future games.

Thanks Warren!

My wife and I, were taught how to play the Lords of Waterdeep by Keith and we picked it up fast as we have played games with similar Mechanic. It was fun and we really liked it, also need to point out that Keith is a good teacher when it comes to board games.

We definitely will consider adding the Lords of Waterdeep to our collection, so if anyone is considering to trade it please let me know.

Great game, played with Chris, two others. I've played this a few times, and never have I seen the Kraken eat so well, with two great sweeps of the board eating all before it. I thought I had a good chance of winning until losing all my hard earned fleets in a blink of an eye, and that was only entree. Even losing so badly everyone was kept on the edge of their seats the entire time. Love this game.

Release the Kraken!

Me, Saba, Keith and Kate. It was more a game of elimination than passing the love letter ! The Batman edition might be more appropriate.

I arrived just before dinner and joined Nick, Sharon and Kent for this fantasy version of Pandemic. We lost. But I got to play a game with Kent!

This year the Annual Rememberance Day Wings of Glory Game was not a mass battle. Instead we ran nine smaller games covering the length of The Great War.

We started with the dawn of The Fokker Scourge, with two EIII's (Garry C and Garry W) vs a DH2 and a Neuport 16 (Jon and Geoff). The Central Powers won with two kills to one.

Next up was Ty and Craig (2xNeuport 16) vs a DIII (Andrew M) and a DV (Jocelyn). This time the Allies prevailed, 2 to 1.

Leece, Chris, and Mike flew Neuport 17's against Craig and Stacey in Halberstats, both of which escaped, one to victory, and the other is presumed lost. 1 point to the Allies, and 4 to the Central Powers.

Jon, Geoff, and Leece then boarded Spad XIII's to take out the Garrys in Roland CII's. Each side lost a plane, but one Roland escaped to victory.

Then is was Jon and David Y in an RE.8 and a Bregeut 14 against the Garrys and Rob in DR-I's, who made a clean sweep of the skies.

Jon and David then tried their luck in Camels vs the Garrys in a DIV and a DV. Again, the unbeatable Garrys dominated the skies.

Chris and Mike flew Snipes against Leece and Stacey in DVIII's and battled to a time-out tie.

Then the bombers came out.

Rob, Chris and Ariaflame lifted off in Camels to stop a Gotha IV piloted by Stacey. Collisions and flames followed, and a badly damaged, but still flying, Gotha escaped to bomb some rear area of the Front.

Ariaflame then flew a Caproni Cauldron against Leece, Stacey, and Chris flying DR-I's in a mighty battle. Sadly, fire damage eventually brought the Cauldron down, but not before forcing one of the DR-I's off the board, and so won the round.

Final scores were Allies - 14 points, Central Powers - 37 points.

Thank-you everyone who took part, and special congratulations goes to the freshly crowned Ace, Garry C with 4 victories to his name!
