11/19 Berks Games Day

Various games of 40K going on
Berks-PA Gaming Club held their 2nd official meeting at the Muhlenberg Recreational Center. We had to squeeze this in on a Friday night due to scheduling conflicts with locating a suitable facility so close to the Holidays.

That did nothing to deter our amazing community that makes up the Berks-PA Gaming Club. Somewhere around 25 players from various ages (my 8 year old son), to our resident "old man" Archer, all participated in a variety of games that shape the interest of our members.

Flames of War battle going on, each player with 600 points
Many games of Warhammer 40,000 were going, which by far is the most represented game in our club, but many others were also being played. Games of Battle Fleet Gothic were happening, as well as a number of us stretching out into Flames of War. After a demo game, those of us starting to build beginners armies got together and played a 3 vs. 3 Flames of War throwdown with 3 allied US forces taking on 2 German players who seem to have conscripted some Canadians. It was very fun and everyone had a good time. There were also club members working on models and holding clinics on painting and modeling.

What we learned from this event is that we may have to move into the next room at the facility, which is much larger, to host all of our members and activities. The turnout was incredible, the club support was fantastic. Several members signed up for Elite membership, we had some Club T-shirts available, and Starvos, our forum master, held some raffles throughout the night, which may be something we do more of next time.
25 players, all local to the Berks Gaming Club. I can only imagine what happens when we continue to network out with our friends at Lancashire Gaming, The Gaming Garage in West Chester, Lehigh, and our friends in Harrisburg at the Adventurer's Guild.

Berks-PA Gaming Club will not be hosting an official gathering in December, but will be supporting our friends in Lancaster at Lancashire Gaming on December 4th. The Adventurer's Guild is hosting a (limited seating-10) Apocalypse Game December 11th.

The next Berks Games Day will be Sunday January 9th, 2011 (After that we will be on Saturdays), from 12:00 noon till 7:00pm. There will also be a large club Apocalypse Game going on with 3 various battles. Please check on the Forum for Details. If you wish to participate in this Warhammer 40K event, that will have an impact on the False Hope Crusade campaign, you may play in the large 'super-heavy' board, the smaller 'infantry' board, or even the space battle with Battle Fleet Gothic.
Paul Bates celebrating his first 40K Victory over a Veteran Player
As President of the Berks-PA Gaming Club, I want to say how proud I am of all of our members, new and veteran players. Everyone that showed up enjoyed themselves and felt like they were welcome. I couldn't be happier with how the night went!
