This weekend I am taking a road trip up to Minneapolis/Saint Paul for some casual gaming. What convention or tournament is going on you ask?.... Nothing but a weekend of games at a buddies house. We should almost call this trip Origins or something cool like that, as I'm going up to play at the house of the Dude that got me started in this hobby. This is almost a pilgrimage of sorts. My trip to the holy land, or more correctly, the Alpha Site!
This trip has been talked about for the 12 past years but has never materialized, until now. This weekend will see games of all kinds played. Mostly games from the past like Inquisitor, 2nd ed 40k, and a massive multi player game of Epic on Saturday! Zach will be making the trip up with me, and I must thank him as he was a driving force this weekend got planned and was followed through on. Thanks Zach!
Next week I hope to get tons of pictures, some video, and maybe a battle report or after action summary. Till then, remember the first time you played a miniature wargame. I will be, as I get to play games with some of the best guys in the hobby!
