Summer Time Gaming

(My son Ethan playing against Tucker in a game of 40K)
Spring has come and Summer is here and it is a great time to reconnect with friends who went to college and are home as well as finding other ways to get the general gaming community together.

Recently I opened up my home to my fellow gamers and we had a day of Gaming as well as picnicing.   We fired up the grill and cooked up some hot dogs and hamburgers, everyone brought something to eat or drink and we had a fun day of it.

I'm fortunate that my home is roomy enough for me to set up several gaming tables.  We had three full 4'x6' battlefields in the Man-Cave (basement), one on what normally is my dining room table, and a smaller 4'x4' desert board that we used for smaller point values of Warhammer 40K as well as Heavy Gear.

We also were preparing for a convention called Dex-Con, that was held up in Morristown NJ, and while it featrued many RPG and LARPs, there was a growing contingent of Wargaming.

It was nice to see large floor-battle style Apoc Games with huge Ork Gargants and Titans, and a Space Hulk Game, a 40K tournament, Battletech and other games featured.

A number of us from the Berks-PA Gaming Club went up specifically to support the Heavy Gear tournament as it is a new hobby that many of us have expanded into.

Our club is also running a narrative campaign for Warhammer 40K which has featured some fun missions all based upon locations that exist in our local area.     They are fun and anyone is welcome to try them out for themselves.    If your in the Berks area, or want to jump in at any time, all you need to do is visit our facebook page and start posting away.

So I hope the rest of you are having fun this summer, and look for upcoming events from the Berks-Gaming club, as I plan to host some tournaments and Apoc Games as time allows, so we can enjoy the summer indoors and out.
