  • 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

    Help and advice for liquidating a decent size collection

    You'll get more money selling individual aircraft, as a rule. Check values by looking at current and ended ebay sales.

    Hope things get turned

    Indeed, anything bombing an agile moving target is pretty futile but they could drop what amounts to be an obstacle out of range of a heat ray to delay

    Great 'food for thought', Dave - I like what you've come up with given the 'real' height of the tripods and the specialized T&T 'peg' levels...

    The heavy bombers could fly at a higher altitude to escape the Tripods' weapons but it does make bomb aiming more difficult.
