Fall-loha 2010: A Gaming Luau to Remember
Posted Sunday, September 19th, 2010 at 4:28pm
The second Green Mountain Game Day, Fall-loha 2010, happened this past Saturday, September 18th at the Grange hall in Lyndonville, Vermont. It was a rousing success by any standard.
We played all kinds of games from 10:00 in the morning to after 10:00 at night, when the hall manager shooed us out. There was the Small World tournament, of course, which Ericka Reil won, receiving a copy of the Cursed! expansion. There were also open demos of the miniatures war game Flames of War.
Cyclades seemed to be a big hit, being played almost constantly throughout the day. The new releases Dominion: Prosperity and Back to the Future both got play time. Charlton Wilbur, story game evangelist to greater New England, led sessions of two games: Fiasco and The Shab-al-Hiri Roach.
Green Mountain Gamers would like to thank everyone who made the day such a success. Not just by your kindness in donating to fund the day, but participating and making it all such fun.
The really gratifying part was the number of people from gaming communities from all around Vermont — and even beyond — made the trip to Lyndonville yesterday. Fall-loha became an opportunity not only for the tabletop gamers of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom to get together, but to meet up with people from all over. There were people from Burlington, Bridport, Derby Line, Lebanon, New Hampshire and even Dorchester, Massachusetts.
Plans are already afoot for Winter Weirdness on January 8th in Barre, Vermont. Whether you couldn’t make it to Fall-loha or just can’t get enough gaming action, save that date — as well as November 5th through the 7th, which the weekend of Carnage, the biggest gaming event in Vermont.
