“Beginning of the End”: 65th Anniversary, 1944 Campaigns
This year’s theme will be “Beginning of the End”: 65th Anniversary, 1944 Campaigns. The theme encompasses many interesting actions across the better portion of the globe. Land, Sea, and Air scenario possibilities equally abound. From Luzon to Bastogne, and all points in between, 1944 showcases no fewer than 38 major battles and Campaigns, involving troops drawn from more than a dozen Nations.
Just a few of the actions from 1944 that can be used for game inspiration: Luzon, Leningrad, Operation Tempest, Bombing of Berlin, Operation Shingle, Marshal Islands, Anzio, Salerno, Monte Casino, Sevastopol, Crimea, Rome, D-Day / Normandy, Continuation War, Saipan, Operation Bagration, Burma, Minsk, Caen, Baltic Campaign, Guam, Operation Spring, Warsaw Uprising, Florence, Operation Pluto, Operation Dragoon, Liberation of Paris, Falaise Gap, Brussels, Antwerp, Operation Market Garden, Athens, Aachen, Leyte Gulf / Philippines, Greek Civil War, Battle of the Bulge, Malmedy, and Bastogne.
While in Gettysburg this year, if you are enjoying your convention, please take the time to thank a volunteer or two. Our HMGS volunteers do a tuff job, and they do so at the cost of playing games themselves in order to increase others enjoyment. A thank you may not seem like much, but after a long weekend of volunteering, it really is quite a morale booster.
Keep checking back, as we will be adding further information over the coming months. This year’s deadlines have been added to this site, please look at them now. These dates follow the template that has been used by all three conventions for several years now. This means that GM registration for FALL IN! opens the day after Historicon!
I hope to see a record number of you in Gettysburg this November!
