Luckily there is still much to be said for being middle aged and enjoying the company of long time friends and playing games.
That's me on the left. (sic)
After a pleasant hour or so reviewing Rob's current armies (including some old friends), his painting table and lead pile, and accepting his offer of a painted 25mm Darius and a couple of Persian chariots as well as some spare back issues of the Courier, (best wargame magazine yet imho) we got down to it.
Rob's place is a traditional Montreal flat so no basement game room with an 8 foot long table but a nice big, comfortable kitchen table. While the fringes of Irene blew past us, we started off with Wings of War with Les & I ganging up on Rob. This was followed by 2 games of TransAmerica, a railroad boardgame by Rio Grande and last but not least, my first games of Hordes of The Things. These saw Rob & I team up against Les. Largely human 15mm armies on both sides, though Les's troops were a little more fleshy than ours. I confess that I did enjoy these games.
Out looking for new recruits.
Thank you Les for the invite to come along and thank you Rob for your hospitality.
