Wiley Wargame Weekend 2023


Last weekend we had the great pleasure of hosting Wiley Wargame Weekend. We normally host this in October for my birthday, but this year we did that for our Weird War Stories event.

This year's premiere game was Last Action Heroes. 32 of Hollywood's actions heroes sucked out of their movies to fight in a winner take all deathmatch ala Secret Wars.Eight players had to pick their teams from just looking at their VHS boxes just like the old days of video stores. I did the terrain sets while Steve did miniatures and the fantastic cards.

The goal was to take out all the other teams, earning an oscar each time. They got bonuses if the camera crew was there. The rules were, of course, Fistful of Lead.

Each time they left a "set" they were randomly transported to another set. Keeping teams together would not be an option.

 We hadn't playtested the scenario so we crossed our fingers. It turned out to be one of the funnest games we ever put on. Full video HERE:

We had other games going on too. A modern micro tanks battles set up for a fictional Soviet thrust into Germany.

 And a cross Channel raid by Germans onto British soil.



Great time, and we got to have some new faces. Next up, March to Victory!
