I went to New Orleans for Bayou Wars XX the weekend of June 8-10. Man, did it rain! The rain began at Baton Rouge and continued off and on until we left Kenner in a torrential downpour. Actually, I am not complaining (much) because Texarkana has been experiencing drought for the last couple of years and it was good to know that rain is still possible somewhere.
The theme for 2012 was “Gaming ‘Til the End of Time!” referring to the Mayan prediction of the end of the world this year. And, with this theme in mind, everyone seemed really to enjoy the games.
Although I confess to being a confirmed soloist, I enjoyed attending Bayou Wars because I met interesting people, learned about different games, and bought merchandise from some great vendors. The following photos will feature all three. Even though I did not attend the tournaments held in the other room — D&D, FoW, FoG, DBM, etc. — I think you will get the general idea about the variety of games and the enthusiasm of the players.
