|Main hallway. Whatever those new black things are they resulted in the loss of space for six gaming tables.|
|Miniatures game room. Although other tournaments such as Flames of War were in another room.|
Fairly quite in this room Saturday morning.
I did not play in any games this year, but visited the Convention on Saturday morning. There was good attendance, but there seemed to be a sparse number of historical miniature games. Although, the new layout this year may have contributed to the sparse appearance. The Exhibitor (Vendor) room looked good. The room was full. I did not buy much, but I certainly could have bought some board games...lots to choose from. There were very little historical miniature products to buy (apart from the normal Flames of War), but this is normal at Denver conventions. I miss the JR Miniatures booth that used to attend.
I heard that some game masters had either zero or one players show up for their games. That was unfortunate. No one reason why, just a mixture of not a lot of historical miniature gamers, too many games in a slot, lack of interest in a certain periods, scenario not interesting, or maybe no interest in the rules for the games. I was fortunate to have three play in my four player game.
|Another view in main hallway.|
|ACW Battle of Trent's Reach.|
I should have played this and compared it to my scenario. Pine trees?
|British and French in the thick of things.|
|Many French and British destroyers lost in 15 minutes of battle.|
|French battleships running into to fog to avoid British battleships.|
|Strasbourg has multiple fires on board and taking the brunt of three British battleships.|
