Thread: WoG on the Last Frontier

    Default WoG on the Last Frontier

    Traveling for a living, I have played WoG (as much as I could) all over the globe, just as much as my job has imposed long hiatuses in my gaming career.
    Nevertheless, I still find myself to beat my own gaming records!
    Today in Skagway, Alaska at Latitude 59║26,7'N I played the northernmost game of my Wings of War career!

    In my lunch break, giving up on food, I unwrapped my "travel WoG kit" (a duel pack) and had the SPAD XIII face the Albatros D.Va
    Quick game it was, as it took only 3 turns for the German plane to explode mid-air after a short range burst of the SPAD's machine gun!

    Just another reminder of how flexible WoG is, if you can carry around a few miniatures!

    Next stop - Spad vs Albatros in the Mexican Riviera!

    Valerio - this is true dedication to WOG! Love the idea of your "travel" version too.

    Thanks for posting!

    A nice quick game for your lunch break. I used to play chess in mine back in my younger days and it was always hard to finish a game in the time available.

    That's some serious globetrotting gaming, Valerio, well done old chap.
    Reading this I recalled someone had made a travel set for the card game - 1/3 scale mounted on magnets with a metal backed map board to play on. I found the thread from 2009 though, sadly the pics of it in use in hospital are long since lost in the ether.
