  • Wings and Sails of Glory online registration for the 2018 Origins Game Fair! (FINAL UPDATE!)

    Ladies and Gentlemen it is once again that time of year!

    The Buckeye Gamers in Flight, The Wings of Glory Aerodrome and The Sails of Glory Anchorage are proud to be representing for a seventh consecutive year at The 2018 Origins Game Fair!! We would like for you to come join us this June 13th through June 17th in Columbus, Ohio for a total of 45 separate events in conjunction with Ares Games over 5 days... including Wings of Glory WWI, Wings of Glory WWII, Sails of Glory, and even Galaxy Defenders and Sword & Sorcery! Events will be run by Aerodrome members Matt56, 7eat51, Misdomingo, Rhodie80, Teaticket, Jager, Jago85, CappyTom, Yatag2003, The Cowman (that's me), and Flash, this year's Aerodrome Lend Lease participant.

    WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! This year Ares Games is offering up the chance for you to participate in a World Record Event… Three different chances in fact! We want to break the current “World Records” for the most players in a single “Of Glory” event for Wings of Glory WW1, Wings of Glory WWII, and Sails of Glory! Below you will find the listings for these incredible attempts in bold type. We need you to come participate and help us make something amazing happen! New players are welcome, and all players will receive an airplane pack or ship pack with which to play and take home after the event! The current records are: 100 players for WWI, 23 Players for WWII, and 79 players for Sails of Glory! We CAN do this, and we want you to be a part of it all!

    Online Event Registration for Origins should be open as of May 2nd. Be sure to hop on and register soon though, as our events have limited seating and tend to fill quickly! Each of our events also has prizes for lucky participants, so you might even go home with bonus swag! We promise to show you a fun time and absolutely want you to come game with us, so please register soon and we will see you at the show!

    Preregistration for Origins has now closed! Tickets for our remaining event seats will be available onsite at Origins beginning June 13th at 7:00 AM. Thank you to all who pre-registered! We look forward to seeing you! The event list with remaining seat counts can still be found here!

    Though it's strange that there have never been so many manufacturing defects in the lines you have done before... And I'd hardly call them small defects.
