Join us and our friends from Alderac Entertainment Group and IELLO as we showcase all aspects of table top gaming: miniatures, RPGs, CCGs & board games will all be spotlighted and highlighted through a series of demo and open session games. AEG's staff will be on hand for the world premiere of their new game, Dark Seas, and to demo Doomtown, Pagoda, Istanbul, Love Letter and many more titles from their extensive line of best-selling games. IELLO will be here with sneak previews of two yet-to-be-released games and a slew of demos of their top-notch games.

2015 Star Wars: X-Wing Store Championship Results

Robert Flynn takes the mantle from 2014 store champion John Coviello and enters the annals of history as one of the top-ranked Las Vegas X-Wing pilots. While only one pilot can earn this high mark each year, recognition is due for the exemplary bravery and skill demonstrated by pilots on both sides of this galactic war. The Aces below earned top marks and walk away with the following awards and commendations (click on a pilot's name to check out his squadron roster):

Headline: Little Shop of Magic Attends Las Vegas Open, Shenanigans Ensue.

Last year Frontline Gaming turned the classic Flamingo landscape, into a gruesome scene of plastic mayhem and resin carnage. The convention--aptly titled The Las Vegas Open--showcased the very best that war-gaming had to offer with a sold out Warhammer 40K tournament, Streamroller Tournaments for Warmachine/Hordes and much more!  With the convention being an instant success, the boys behind the Las Vegas Open decided to paint the town red again and invited us down to the party!

For hours and hours our self directed mythical employees--read goblin slaves--scoured the tomes in a pitiful attempt to both learn to read and concoct a plan worthy enough of this convention. Finally, through sheer luck and otherworldly perseverance, the goblins emerged from the employee rest area--read dungeon-- with a fantastic plan: we were going to show up with enough pizazz, rhinestones and showgirls to field our own Broadway production.

Needless to say, we are currently looking for more goblin slaves.

So we decided to do the complete opposite of what the goblins proposed and have a good ole fashioned Flames of War tournament! Duke it out in a 1550 point,  Late War tournament designed to satiate the palette of any blood thirsty war gamer. Registration and more details can be found here.

Army not ready? That's okay too! We're going to have a booth and will be selling all manner of wargaming supplies and goodies! You'll also want to stop by the booth as we have some fantastic surprises--think prizes and goodies--that will be waiting for you!

Ok ok, you're probably wondering: "What are the prizes?! Stop being so vague handsome narrator person!" How does a Convention Badge for next year sound? Or product from Hawk Wargames? Or fantastic bits from Kromlech or Mechanical Warhorse? Or some Dragon Bits from our store? We've got all that and more for anybody that particpates in our scavenger hunt! Stop on by during the show to find out more details!

It should be a fantastic show! So come on down, play some games and say hello to your local gaming wizards!
