No it was not a race but a celebration of the 400th birthday of Hampton, VA. The Old Dominion Military Society ran two games to expose the public to the hobby of miniature tabletop wargaming. Attending from the club were Carl Sciscio, Chuck Turnitsa, Scott Kidd, Cliff Creech, Dave Dietrich, Kai Weaver, Jon Krigbaum, and myself. As I mentioned in an earlier blog we used a modified version of Neil Thomas' Wargaming: An Introduction.
The club ran three games, two American Civil War games and one American Revolution game. We receive many questions from the public which were admirably answered by all the members of ODMS in attendance. The best thing the club did was allow some young gamers to roll some dice and play. This way the little darlings can see that games are more than right and left thumb events.
Thanks and congratulations to all that attended. The only thing I hated about the event is I forgot to bring a camera to post pictures of the event on this post.
