    Default Buckeye Gamers in Flight games for Origins 2018

    Here is the list for the Buckeye Gamers in Flight games for Origins this June. I have broken it down by WW1, WW2, and Sails of Glory; it's also broken down by each day of the convention. In addition to these games, several members of BGiF will be running Sword and Sorcery (2 games each day of the con) and Galaxy Defender (1 game each day of the con). It promises to be a heck of a lot of gaming fun!

    Would love to be there this year - especially with Flash coming over from the UK - but the work schedule says otherwise.


    With that many games there is bound to be a huge trove over AARs to pore over.

    Is this also an Origins event? My family will be attending the whole con this year, and I plan to play a lot of Wings of War.

    Bob, this is an event that Phillip is planning to run - while it's not officially part of the BGiF series of events, Phil plays in quite a few of our games at Origins. This is a game he's running for his group (mentioned in his post). I believe it is a WWI game (wgf), although the reference to attacking 'the Reich' might make one think it's WW2...

    Looking forward to seeing you at Origins!

    All the best,
    Matt

    I haven't played WWI yet, although I did pick up the base game and a few used planes dirt cheap a few months ago. I may try this one. Will "Bombing the Reich" be the name in the official event catalog?
