  • Origins 2019 Games Schedule

    Event registration for Origins 2019 is live starting today! Below you will find a list of our favorite games, at least those tied directly to this and our sister forum... They are organized by day and time and are grouped under the aegis of the different groups running the games this year - since there are three different groups/places where you can get your 'fix' this year, make sure you know where your appropriate game is taking place. It would be a shame to show up at the wrong place for the right game, or vice versa... I have listed the event registration number at the end of each entry to help you register for your potential game(s). To be safe, make sure the title of the game you want matches the event number - sometimes the Origins organizers have a glitch and numbers don't match. When in doubt, use the title of the game

    Jammed guns green Vs red

    In my damage deck (A), I have two types of "guns jammed" symbols. One is green and the other is red. Is there a difference between these two?

    Multi-gun airplanes and damage decks

    You're probably right - more decks.

    I routinely use triple decks anyway, so will stick to that formula.

    Did Ares ever make the FW.190 A? I love

    Yes sir, one of many Hugh Marlow "classics", although my favorite Hugh Marlow film is a 1949 production titled "Come To The Stable".

    Seaplane battle in 1918

    Nice link. I guess with using cards and maybe the WoG Mates movement cards from the files section here it would indeed be possible to play that scenario.
