Poll: Warhammer Days

Warhammer 40k and Fantasy have yet to make a regular appearance on our calendar, and it’s high time to fix that. So, Warhammer players of the metro area: when is the best day for regular Warhammer events?

We’re talking regular events here, not tournaments. Monthly or less-regular tournaments will universally fall on Saturday. But if we start a league or even just block out some open play time, what day(s) would you most prefer?

Please check all days you’d be regularly available, and check which kind of Warhammer you play. You can check multiple options. We can’t guarantee the highest voted day will get its spot, but we’ll aim for the highest congruence of votes to available times.

Summary

It’s 1947 and World War II rages on, fueled by alien technology found at a crash site in Antarctica. Dust Tactics is a tactical war game stripped to its simplest elements. It plays fast and fun, with enough tactical meat to engage a thinking player without the minutiae of more complex minis games. Add in a simple, engaging story and lots of low-cost expansion options and Dust Tactics is easily a mainstay for quick one-on-one fun. The only drawbacks are the size and initial price of the box.

Ascension Tournament

Players will be able to show up, play some Ascension, and get a copy of our next promo card, Deep Drone, while supplies last. Entry is $3.

This is a tournament using the Swiss rules, where players build points for how well they placed at each game, and the highest winners go on to a final round. Number of normal rounds is determined by how many people play. We’ll award gift cards to the top placers.

If you have a copy of Ascension, by all means bring it. Each copy can support 4 players.


D&D at the Library

The New Orleans Public Library is kicking off a Roleplaying Game Club for teens! We invited them to post on our Facebook page. Here’s what they have to say:

The Teen Zone at the Main Library is starting a Roleplaying Gaming Club for teens and tweens, ages 12-17. Roleplaying games foster creativity, problem-solving, socialization, math and reading skills. Come roll up a character and join the quest for adventure and fun. The club will meet the second Saturday of every month in the Main Library, from 2-4 PM. The inaugural session is next Saturday, April 9. All patrons ages 12-17 are invited. Walk-ins are welcome.

You can help by emailing teen@neworleanspubliclibrary.org or calling (504) 596-2565. We suggest donating books, dice, minis or the like, and you can always ask about other options.
