International Tabletop Day

Saturday 5 April 2014 was the 2nd annual International Tabletop Day. Doug Johnson and The Colby Street Irregulars hosted an event at Fort Meigs in Perrysburg Ohio.  There were about 15 different games played, several of which ran more than once. Approximately 50 gamers were in attendance which is not bad since this was the first tiome this event was held at this location. There were a few miniatures games but the focus was on board games that are fun for the whole family.
Doug Johnson (R) runs a game of Wings of War for a young gamer.

 I ran three three games of Twilight Games' Zombies!!!  throughout the day. One short demo game and a longer more intense game in the AM, then a cutthroat game that I joined in, for the afternoon session.
Things start out well enough in the Zombie apocalypse.
Then things start to get devious!

In the end it was the quiet, non-confrontational player who made it to the helicopter!
There were two historical miniature games also. A World War Two game using the Bolt Action rules run by Jim Wonnacot, and a Dark Ages game using the Johnson Brothers home rules Viking Battles.
Steve Johnson (L) ran a free for all Viking raid scenario while Doug took photos and played.

Jim Wonacott (R) ran an interesting Bolt Action Pacific Theater scenario.

Everyone had a great time playing games and enjoying each others company! This makes the third yearly event at the fort for the Colby Street Irregulars and HMGS-GL.
