Thread: The Wright Flight is at it again...

    Default The Wright Flight is at it again...

    This coming Saturday is the second one of the month, and that means The Wright Flght again takes wing at Epic Loot in Centerville, Ohio. Doors open at 11 AM and we're usually airborne by 11:30. Come out and join the fun if you are so inclined! As it is the day before the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, I imagine we'll be flying some late-war crates in a desperate last-minute attempt to stave off defeat/ensure final victory. As usual, we will adjourn to a local watering hole afterwards for a late lunch/early dinner/aftenoon snack...

    PM me if you need directions

    All the best,
    Matt

    Some pictures of the action yesterday - we pulled out the late war aircraft to commemorate the war's end...Sopwith Snipes taking on a Fokker DVIII and a Halberstadt CLII for the first action. The two-seater was replaced by a Siemens-Schuckert DIII for the second round.

    The Halberstadt was the big winner in the first round - he ended up vanquishing both planes - lots of damage points dished out all around, but it was the boom card that did each of the Snipes in eventually...

    The second game seemed a bit more even - everyone dishing out A damage and the planes pretty evenly matched from a maneuver standpoint - we found ourselves bobbing and weaving and shooting up a storm (when we weren't jammed). On the final turn of the game, three of us either passed our damage point limits or drew the boom card. First time we've had three palnes drop in the same turn!

    Our little group is such a well-balanced assembly of gamers - everyone comes to play and enjoy - there is never bickering over rules, and we all enjoy the knowledge and information each brings to the mix. It really is a joy to spend several hours each month together at the gaming table, and after-gaming food and drink at one of the many local venues makes for a delightful end to the session.

    All the best,
    Matt

    Saturday, Dec.8th 11:00am at Eppic Loot in Centerville, Ohio. Google maps said it’s about 26 minutes from Monroe. We game from 11:00 to about 2 or 3 and then go out for a sandwich and beverage. Always a good time. Come on up.
