SFB Day at Dave's House - Saturday, April 1, 2017

RESCHEDULED

Spring SFB Day – Saturday, April 1

Hello SFB Community,

We had fun at the informal Star Fleet Battles day we had at Dave’s house back in May, so we’re doing it again.

When: Saturday, April 1, 2017
Where: Dave’s house in Albany, NY
Cost: Chip in for food. Gaming and lodging are free (unless if you upgrade yourself to a hotel bed)

DETAILS
We will start in the morning of Saturday, April 1st whenever people get up and/or arrive. We will play SFB all day and into the night. The default for many of the guys we expect will be tournament games, but other SFB action is welcome too. Other Star Fleet Universe, and related games, are welcome too. If you want to run a game, let us know and we will publicize an event list. This is intended to be a casual gaming day.

If someone wants to run a scenario, we already have one person who will show up for that, but he’s not into Tournament SFB. So volunteer yourself as a GM and we will publicize your event.

We will have food. Everyone who attends can chip in. We might order in, or we might cook onsite. Or a mixture of both. This all depends on how many RSVPs we get. We’ll figure out details on the food later.

If you are traveling, guest beds are available. Dave has made progress with accommodations since last time. Downstairs in the Guest Suite we have a Queen bed, two Twin beds, and a pull-out couch with a Full size mattress. Upstairs we have a Queen size pull-out. If we have more than five guests, I’ve also got a couch, two air mattresses, some reclining chairs, and plenty of floor space. These accommodations are free to guests. For those of you who want more comfort and privacy, there are three hotels, each at a different price point, within literal walking distance of Dave’s house.

EXTENDED WEEKEND ACTION
You are welcome to arrive Friday afternoon/evening if you’d like. We will have some kind of group dinner on Friday, March 31st. We will then either watch a movie on Dave’s awesome home theater system, or do some causal gaming, or something else.

We will probably have some kind of Sunday brunch for those who stay over on Saturday night.

Please RSVP here, or via email.

More soon,

UPDATE - Winter SFB Day – Saturday, January 14

Hello SFB Community,

We are a little less than two weeks until the Winter SFB day at Dave's house in Albany, NY.
Saturday, January 14th will be upon us real soon!

We have six confirmed attendees:

Brian Evans
Ed Slusarek
Rob Estrada
Brett Johnson
Tom Compter
Dave Cheng

Chris Proper is a Maybe/Probable.

If you are interested in Non-Tournament Non-SFB, Tom Compter is volunteering to run a Federation Commander scenario with Minis. Saturday morning or early afternoon, as he needs to leave by dinnertime. Please reply if this interests you and you would like to reserve a spot.

Please also reply if you are thinking of attending and would like us to add you to the Confirmed list.
The five confirmed already listed account for all five beds available, but I have some air mattresses, so I can host a few more overnight guests.

Deadline for RSVPs is Wednesday, January 11th, so I have a few days to plan for food.

Hope to see many of you soon,

Dave Cheng
Schenectady Wargamers Association

Friday night movie

I forgot to mention.
We will almost certainly be watching a movie on my awesome 70" home theater on Friday night after dinner.
Title TBD. I have a few good ones to choose from.

Games at Dave's!

8 People showed up to play SFB all day at Dave's in Albany. There were:

-Dave C
-Brook Villa
-John Rigley
-Rob Estrada
-Brian Evans
-Ed Slusarek
-Chris Proper
-Peter Bakija

I played 2 games (going 2-0 vs Dave's LDR and Brian's Hydran); Proper played 3 games as the Fed, going 1-2, including a game where he went to R0 against a Hydran, did 90 internals to the Hydran, but still got killed (as while the Hydran was down to 1 power, the two stingers were still alive, Chris couldn't do anything about them, and they killed him). There were a lot of games of tournament SFB played. And some Incan Gold!
