  • 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

    Have you tried any altitude rules with the app? e.g. simply replacing straights or sideslips with climb/dive or more complex approaches as in post #286?

    Check the maneuver card.

    If the card doesn't have an upward arrow in the bottom corner, it isn't a straight, and therefore legal to use
