  • 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 Gun, or Guns?

    Thanks for your thoughts everyone, and for directing me to Andrea’s interpretation. Food for thought.

    Jammed Gun, or Guns?

    I think that was me.

    Not factored into the Rules? I'm not surprised - its omission favours the Entente, like almost everything else.

    Jammed Gun, or Guns?

    Well it's an optional rule from the game's designer that's historically accurate and answers Peter's query, so he has a choice now.

    Jammed Gun, or Guns?

    Exactly. Simple.

    I can see that players might want to keep shooting, if there is any possibility. S.E.5As or planes with separate over-wing

    The type of jam doesn't come into it and, having played it, there's no more admin or tracking than the three jam tokens.

    It depends on whether you want to play a game, or a simulation, is my take. I love this game for the simplicity, and avoid all the games that want to
