What a Tanker: World at War at Fort Meigs, Perrysburg, Ohio

Post by LordMartarius » Mon Oct 22, 2018 2:21 pm

A friend and I are running two What a Tanker! events at World at War 2018, Saturday, November 3, 2018. It is held at Fort Meigs Historical Site, 29100 W. River Rd. in Perrysburg, Ohio. The morning event starts at 9AM, and the afternoon at 1PM. Here are the events we are running this year. Hope to see you there!

Morning Event:
France - late summer 1944.
US tanks are advancing through the French countryside, when the US commander sees Panzers in the distance. Will the armoured might of the German Wehrmacht stop the advance of Patton’s tanks? Or will the scrappy Shermans prove victorious as the Allies edge closer and closer to the Ruhr? Chose sides and take command of your machine, Tankers!
Scale: 15mm
Max Players: 12
Game Info: Rules taught. All players welcome, under 12 accompanied by a parent.

Afternoon Event:
Name of Game: Just Desert!
Game Description:
The US Army Tank Corps -- ready for their initiation by fire. The adversary -- The vaunted Afrika Korps. The arena -- the Tunisian desert. Objective -- Victory! Who will prevail?
Scale: 15mm
Max Players: 12
Game Info: Rules taught. All players welcome, under 12 accompanied by a parent.

Thank you so much for the kind words. This is our first public event, and we are a bit excited and anxious. But, I think people are going to love this game like we have.

I wish I could come to Drums that weekend, but I have a prior commitment. :(

FWIW, I'm running a CoC game at UCon in Ann Arbor, MI the following weekend. I think there are still 2 slots available for the Saturday game.
