Fires in the Sky - WWI air combat: Adriatic Raid                                   Friday 8 PM - 11 PM

Game STARTS: 8PM - Assorted Italian land bombers take a very hazardous coastal route (cliffs & all that) to attack a naval base from the sea. This unexpected direction leads to the desired surprise attack. The Austrians respond with a scrambled squadron of both land and seaplanes. bombing success is mostly a matter of luck with the crude equipment, but skill is helpful. Will the Italians make their mark or fall into the sea in flames? Pick a side and see if you can lead the team to victory.

Fletcher Pratt, Modified: World War 2 Naval                                        Saturday 10:30 AM - 6 PM

Allied and Axis forces get together for a sea control fight.  Ships are on the floor.  Minimal die rolling. Can you blow somebody up?

Savage Skies - Naval Expansions: CaptureU-505                                 Saturday 2 PM - 6 PM

Naval action with Commander Dan Gallery's Group 22.3 off Cape Blanco , West Africa. One player gets to play U-505, lurking somewhere on the table. The American aircraft carrier can launch up to 4 Wildcats to patrol, but they have many 'decoys' to examine and must take refuel breaks back at the carrier. The sub can sink the ships or surface and shoot down the Wildcats if the opportunity presents. This is an epic miniatures scenario (4-5 hrs to play). Sub Hunt II (Fires in the Sky / Steamboat Willy) rules systems will be used for resolving movement and combat. Good Hunting!

HTTYD Dragon Training: Dragon Racing                            Saturday 7 PM - 11 PM & Sunday 9 AM - 1 PM

Train your dragons for the best trained racer! Pole position goes to the trainer with the best score. Training is followed by a 2 lap race, Feeding your dragon is required for long races (pit stops) but in-flight feeding is one of the skills that will help you minimize that! players select a viking teen or adult from the movie characters to train and fly the dragon in the race. Start your Dragons!???!?  (Well, I guess they are already running) But watch out! they do not always 'behave' the way you want them to!
