    Default Where can we New Yorkers get together for a game or two or three?

    I have had the game since WOW came out, but have only played a few times. I was thinking, maybe some us us New Yorkers could meet up in Schenectady when they have one of their game-a-thons. I now the one for June is the 10th, so that is out of the question. If there is enough interest I can try to make contact with them and set up a game on July 8th. Respond here if you would be willing to come out July 8th and play.

    Hi Matt,
    I'm in the Hudson River Valley about 1 hour south of Schenectady -- so if the timing is right, I'm in!

    I will also be running an ongoing dogfight game on the July 8th Game-a-thon in Schenectady. I plan on having a supply of planes on hand so anyone who wants can come up, grab a plane and start flying. It will be strictly WW1 for this as these are the only planes I own. I have a couple of 2 seaters so if some more experienced players want we can put in a bombing mission. Hope to see you there.

    Hi Matt,
    I will try to be there -- I've never been to the Game-a-thon before -- can you tell me where it is held and what time it begins, ends, etc. ?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    They hold a game-a-thon, 1 Saturday every month, and once a year they have a convention. I have been to 1 game a thon and had a good time.

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for the info -- I can come up for the first block (11AM-4PM) on July 8, if you want to meet. I have a number of WWI planes (including a couple of 2 seaters, 1 British, 1 German). I also have 3 gaming mats --city, country, and coastal and would be happy to bring them on the 8th. I have a number of WWII planes as well, but have only played one game in this period. I can bring them as well if you want to stumble through it with me. Please let me know if 11-4 on the 8th is good and if you want me to bring the mats and WW2 planes.
    Looking forward to meeting you,
    Bill

    Hello Bill,
    I will be in Schenectady on the 8th running a Wings of Glory event at the game-a-thon in July. I would love to meet you and play a game or 2 as well. I was planning to have an ongoing game that people could walk in and select a plane and start dogfighting. I don't have any of the WOG mats yet, and was planning on bringing a grass field mat so if you wan to play on your mats feel free to bring them. I have not ventured into WW2 yet and would enjoy giving it a try.
    Look forward to meeting you as well.

    Matt,
    Great ! I'll plan to be there a little early for the 11AM block (Mapquest tells me I'm 1.5 hours from Schenectady) -- I'll bring the gaming mats and my planes. Really looking forward to it!

    Hi Matt,
    How/where will I find you on Saturday? I'll be easy to recognize -- I'll be the incredibly handsome fellow carrying the Wings of Glory gaming mats...... but seriously folks...I plan to get to Proctor's a little before 11AM (Mapquest tells me it is 1.5 hours from my place). Since this is my first game-a-thon, how do I find you?
    best,
    Bill

    Bill,

    I hope to make it there on the 12th. I have to see when my niece is planning her engagement party first though. As long as it is not on the 12th I plan on being there.

    Great to see this thread... not a New Yorker, but I've made a few of the Schenectady games in the past. Looks like I'll need to block out some time in the future.

    Well...how does a day in September look for you? Teaticket has suggested he might drive down if something is arranged at The Time Portal, and I can approach my MA and CT friends to check their availability.
