Although I’d be more than happy to describe every moment of the event for you, I figured acting on “a picture is worth a thousand words” would not only be more effective, but much more appreciated by your eyes!  Enjoy (and hover for captions)!

Looks like you ahd the chance to play Angola as well. Did you like it?

Thanks, Highlander!

Hey Xixarro…none of us actually played angola at this event, but yeah, I’ve done it on (rare) occasion during normal training, since my group is regional/contemporanaea. I find it really challenging, but it’s definitely rewarding when I feel I’ve gotten a game right!
