This year, Fallcon was moved to a different venue, the SAIT campus, from the original Commonwealth Centre location. The new place caused some issues, mainly with parking, since the SAIT parking lot was less convenient and cost money compared to the original. It didn't seem to reduce attendance though.
Friday night, I ran an expanded version of my Imperial Skies game with 4 players.
Here, the German players entered the map in two groups, making straight for their targets.
As the Germans came closer, both British players sent their destroyers forward to harass their opponents and kept the bigger ships back.
This resulted in British destroyer casualties as the first blood of the game.
I was quite sick Friday night and Saturday morning, and I missed some events. However, I did feel better later that day and went to the auction. At the auction, they presented awards for amateur game design, and members of the 501st Imperial Legion in Calgary showed up to provide some atmosphere!
On Sunday, I joined a game of Chain of Command run by Stu from Calgary. This is a Too Fat Lardies ruleset used for 15mm WWII games.
From that point on, since the Germans had a deployment location in town with a lot of heavy cover, they were well protected against any British attack and were able to play aggressively.
This year, I had a great time again, despite being sick for a part of it. We'll see if the SAIT location will be used again next year.
