The second and final day of Board Games By The Bay has (sadly) drawn to a close, so here’s a basic rundown of what happened…
We found ourselves back at the venue nice and early for gamers to join us for another fun day.
The opportunity to shoot at each other seemed to appeal, and soon a crowd had formed.
So with many gamers completely new to the game, we had some local, (and some not so local), assistance with running the game, relying on their experience as we set a New Zealand record of 16 pilots in one match.
Before long, the two teams were flying headfirst at each other…
As one flank on the Allies moved to engage the enemy…
…a couple of Allies on the opposite flank got some pre-battle nerves and changed their minds.
The fighting was soon upon us as the Central Powers took an early lead.
But the Allies somehow managed to turn the tables, eventually outnumbering and defeating their opponents.
And the mugs were handed out to the deserving winners.
But of course, it wasn’t all Wings Of War. We also had a bit of a clean up…(cough)…
…and actual gaming!
It was a fantastic day to round off a fantastic weekend – and it all finished in time for us to get home and witness this:
We’d like to thank everyone who turned up, but especially the likes of Niki, Russell, Jody, and Ian, who went the extra mile to help make Board Games By The Bay Tauranga the fantastic event that it was.
