So for the second straight weekend, I was able to make the 2 hour trip to Sioux Falls for some gaming at Universal Bits and Games. This time a group of buddies came with and we picked up another along the way. We picked last weekend due to their slow grow league was meeting and playing and the store would be hopping with activity.
Blake and Brian picked me up around 10am and we headed to Vermilion to grab Zack. We had all made 500, 1000 team, and 1750 point lists in preparation. Their slow grow was playing 500 point 40k games, but I really wanted to play a team game. I have never played one before but I have been intrigued by team tournaments in Minneapolis.
We played an awesome game. Thanks to the guys at the store for having so much space available. There was at least 9 or 10 games being played!
|We played on a city scape similar to this. Awesome Store!|
We ended up squaring off against each other as everyone was already playing games. It was Sisters of Battle and Imperial Guard VS Space Marines and Dark Eldar. It was a close game, but in the end the traitor marines and dark eldar prevailed.
The trip back was plagued by snow and wind making road conditions very dangerous. Luckily none of us had to work on Sunday, so we crashed at Zach's house for some more late night gaming.
In the end we all had a great time and are looking to do another "road trip"! I managed to play another Sisters of Battle game that night and hope to put my thoughts on how they played in the next couple days.
Big thanks go out to UBG for the space and atmosphere, Blake for driving in those conditions, Zach for the place to crash at, and Brian for the game at Zach's.
