Friday Night (8 October) Titan at Council of Five Nations

I want to thank Bob, Bob, Wes, and John for coming by and playing Titan Friday night at Council this year. It was fun game, as always, even though I got my butt handed to me yet again! I really got to learn some tactics and when to be aggressive.

When the dust settled, it was clear who was going to win. Bob McFeeley!

Looking forward to future games with everyone involved and keep an eye here at the SWA for final plans for the 2nd Annual Northeast Titan Championship in 2011.

Flagship ... the Independent Magazine for Gamers

The owner of Madhouse UK, Steve Tierney, recently shared the news that Flagship, a UK based gaming magazine, recently decided to make the magazine free to download to the online community. His recent post on his our Yahoo Group read:


For many, many years Flagship magazine has been the heart and soul of the turn-based games hobby.

In recent times, with the decline in the number of commercial companies out there, they've spread their focus to other sorts of interactive game, while retaining significant turn-based coverage.

It really is an awesome and timeless magazine.

August Game-a-thon

I want to thank Ben Bunday for the introduction to Twilight Imperium. I really enjoyed the game. Hopefully, If I play again I can think about my strategy and be a bit more agressive at the right time.

Of course, hopefully next time we shall get a few more Titan players since I was supposed to be GMing Titan. I can certainly understand with it being summer time and the usual suspects having other plans.

March Game-a-thon

I just want to say thank you for another great gaming experience.

Thanks to Dave for bringing 4th edition Talisman. Having played 1st & 2nd edition since the 80s, it looks like they did a good job updating the game. The few rules changes were nice additions. I hope they consider updating all the old Talisman expansions to the game.

Thanks to Mike for teaching Dominion between the Afternoon and Evening sessions. It certainly proved helpful after Mike and I eliminated each other in Titan.

February Game-a-thon

I want to thank Ralph, Nick, Mike, and Bill for a fun game of Titan. It is always a great to learn more about a game from veteran players. Of course, you never know how the dice are going to roll. I hope everyone had a good time.

I certainly appreciate Nick and Mike helping introduce the game to some new players. I hope at the next Game-a-thon we can get a few more games going simultaneously.

Greetings and Goals

My wife found the news article in the Gazette about the Council of Five Nations convention this past weekend. I had heard of it, and the SWA, back in the early 80s so I thought I would check out the website. Sounds like the SWA has been going strong since its origins in the 70s.

I been into gaming since high school in the early 80s. At that time it was mostly D & D. That carried on into my service in the Marine Corps, where it expanded to a small variety of role-playing, board, and miniature games of the fantasy, science fiction, and historical variety.
