Pirates Game

After my move to Berlin last week I searched for others players in the city via the Sweetwater Forum. Today I met some of them at the Battlefield Berlin store and played my first game of Triumph & Tragedy. Luckily this was a pirates setting so I could use my pirate crew for LotHS.

The guys were really cool and open and I had a great time - despite me learning the rules the hard way and losing my crew within the first few rounds. The involved factions were: Spanish pirates, a pirate chick crew, a horde of natives, mysterious green critters of tall tales, and lastly, my own pirate crew of course. Here are some photos of the epic battle on the island of doom. Some of them are blurry - I am sorry for that. For the full set of the photos see the Photobucket album.

Hamburger Tactica 2010

From February 27th to 28th the Tactica convention was held in Hamburg. Despite me just moving to Berlin on Friday I went to Hamburg for a quick visit. This was the third time I went there and it is always worth it (click here for 2009). Unfortunately I had very little time so I spent only 2.5 hours there, and there seems to be a lot less going on on the second day. At around 14:30 - 1.5 hours before closing - many booths and tables were already being packed, so I definately recommend going on Saturday if you can. I was very disappointed to find out that the Nosferatu table by Karsten Radzinski (aka Vikotnik) wasn't there that day anymore, as I was really looking forward to seeing that in the flesh (for photos see here and here) after mentioning it in my top wargames tables list. Anyways, I still had a good time there and, of course, took some photos. Let's have a look...
