Flames of War Tournament at Game Parlor, Woodbridge, Virginia
Last Saturday I participated in my first FoW tournament. This one was organized by Eric Lauterbach who held it at the Game Parlor store in Woodbridge. As you can see from the photos the playing areas filled up the back of the store and it was a wonderful assortment of scenery. It was a long, but fun, day of gaming. I think there were a bout 20 participants and they all seemed to be having a great time. Tournament play is a good way to gain experience. You see all the different armies and their equipment in action and you learn how your stuff works against a variety of opposing forces and different situations. Definitely a good learning experience. I'm not a beginner, but I learned a lot anyway. Over the next few days I will be posting more pictures and commentary on this event.
