Cauldron 2014 RDU Gameday
Hi Kids, I've been slack! (Shocking, I know) I totally forgot to post the pix from the not-so-recent gameday the Raleigh lads set up at the Atomic Comics store in Durham! Since everything in gaming has to have a code name, this event was dubbed "Cauldron." This was the second gameday this year. These gamesdays are a recent phenomenon, the idea at this point is to have 3 or 4 every year, depending on how many people are interested. We had about 15-20 gamers show up for the historical games, there were also a like number of guys doing Infinity, a large group of Magic types, and a few 40K'ers.
And there was an Infinity Tournament going on that Saturday, too. I didn't even know there was such a thing in the area. Guess I should get out more. Some of the tables looked real cool. Some of these shots were taken during the games, so don't be surprised to see some figs sneaking around. I've always liked the figures for Infinity, but have only bought a couple and have never played it.
Meanwhile its mission accomplished in Vietnam, a slick picks up the jet pilots. Now we just have to rescue the helicopter pilots.
And a final shot of a desert town for Infinity.
It looks like gaming is alive and well in the RDU area of NC. (Too bad Winston-Salem has become the black hole of culture, but thems the breaks...) The RDU lads are trying to figure out if they should continue putting on two full sized cons every year (Spring Fever, Southern Front; attendance in the 150+ range) or do a bunch of these gamedays instead, or a combination of both. It just depends of who wants to do what. For the up-to-date skinny just check the TSS ("Triangle Simulation Society") yahoogroup or forum. If you live somewhat locally, feel free to put in your two cents. Its about 70 miles from here, and I made the trip!
