My photos from OwlCon 2019, held at Rice University the weekend of February 22-24.
On Friday night Brent and I ran a giant eight-player game of Osprey's Ronin. We were able to manage the chaos by arranging it to be four two-player games all sharing the same large table full of terrain. Everyone had a great time and Brent and I plan to run a Madame Butterfly themed game of Ronin, for six players, at Texas BROADSIDE! 2019.
Saturday morning John ran a large game of Blood & Plunder. I participated with a 100 point English land force, lost my commander to gun fire early, then fell behind over the center-board objective and couldn't make a Strike Test because I'd lost my commander.
Saturday afternoon and evening saw me playing Daniel's Brigadier General Commands, fighting the Battle for Arnhem. I'd managed to have the entirety of British 1AB table-ready in time for the con and ran the Air Landing Brigade.
Sunday morning Rob ran Cruel Seas, which I'd picked up from Table Top Generals at the con. I really liked the rules and plan to run a game of it at Texas BROADSIDE! 2019. If possible with a 1:350 waterline model of the USS TEXAS on the board too.
Sunday afternoon I played in Rob's Check Your Six! Jet Age game, flying in two battles taken from the Hollywood engagements featured in Top Gun and the Zeros vs F14s scene from Final Countdown.
Great con and great fun. Enjoy the photos.
