Conflict of Heroes Organized Play
Saturday July 21, 2012
4:00pm - store close
The Wandering Dragon Game Shoppe in Plainfield, IL

We're getting Conflict of Heroes fans together some friendly, organized play. Depending on turnout we'll have a variety of 2, 4, and even 8 player firefights going. We'll be playing until store closing so come when you can!

New players are welcome, but it helps if you check out the rules online and/or bring someone who knows how to play too. Others will be on hand to help too!

Please register her so we can properly plan:

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOU! If you have questions, let me know. Thanks!

How about a LURPS game, in HO scale. You can have fast movers, gunships, and of course, helos. Here's my email -, to send me the place, and possible dates/and times. Two of my 3 LURPS games are already sold out for this year's GenCon.

Ok, but it better have helicopters and close air support and smokin' missiles flyin' around!

Whatever you fancy, even modern. You can check out my photos to see some of the games I've run. System is The Games of War: A Treasury of Rules for Battles with Toy Soldiers, Ships, and Planes by yours truly.

Maybe. You never know. What a great sales pitch though! 

What system? WWII? WWIII minis might catch my attention.

Hi Ty,

    Let me know if you're ever interested in some real wargaming with minis. You can name the scale, 2mm. 6mm, HO, or 1/32nd.

Hi Chicago Area Gamers

I'm gauging interest in a Conflict of Heroes event at the new FLGS in Plainfield, IL. If you think it might be your thing, please take the brief survey here. I hope you can join us!

Hi folks

We have a semi-active group of war gamers in the western burbs. We generally play in the Downers Grove, Elmhurst area. Drop me a PM if you want me to add you to our efforts to arrange play. 

You can see what we play here:

Re-entering the hobby after a long time away, and looking to play any of a number of the latest CDGs, GMT's Battles of the American Revolution series, Prussia's Glory, and/or GBACW. (I picked up Gringo! and its spinoffs to catch up on the latest variation of the system, having grown up with Pea Ridge and the like).

I see I'm not the only Chicagoan to not visit this group in over 2 years. Did everyone die/move away, take up Monopoly?
