Play 2018: our games

But what we did here? If it’s name is Play, then we played a lot.

Together with some mates of mine from Rome I tried some games as this confused one about pirates. I arrived at the 2nd place on 5 players even if I didn’t understand all the rules.

A game about our feelings and what others know about them. Played by a bunch of rude mates. Fun.

Tex Willer is an Italian western comic. I remember that when I was a child I played with another game based on Tex. This one it’s not so memorable.

Public playtest for a futuristic race game. Futuristic issue, I think.

Memoir ’44 in Normandy. A simple game with strategy. I destroyed the invaders. Next please.

An area was dedicated to 2D wargames. I tasted the water of 3 solitaire games about bombing Germany in WWII. At the end I bought a solitaire game about defending Germany from bombers in WWII. A different view.

While I was playing around, watching gladiators, visiting stands, speaking with friends and all this kinds of occupations, Andrea was mastering a Brazilian roleplay game that he translated in Italian. And in the free time playtested the witch hunt. Moreover he felt bad and vomited in the toilet. But those is another story. However, after Lucca Comics & Games, Play Modena is the annual appointment that I don’t want to miss anymore.

Play 2018: gladiators

Some live role players were around Play Modena. But the really great thing was to watch some gladiatorial fights by local Ars Dimicandi section. Moreover I follow a lesson on Medieval knife combat, with kinds of move, countermove and counter-counter move. I was distracted by other things so I couldn’t stay here to watch all, damn! I want to live more living history combat experiences.

Autori In Gioco 2018

Playtests are the only form of games that I play. Here while we are testing dungeons for miniatures.


The card game about missing cats with its luxury original artwork.

And now a convention only for people who wants to show their games to propose them to editors and to playtesters. In this order. It was located inside a sort of hospice with a section for people who suffers of Alzheimer. On the other side of the road the Italian centre of secret services. Yes, it is weird. However some games were weird too.



And here to hunt some witches.




An original idea from some friend of ours. I hope to see this game published when it will be developed in its final form.

More weirdness in the coatroom: Christ of the crutches.

This year as Ganesha Games in Lucca Comics & Games we were three: I came from Rome, Andrea came from Terni, Damon came from Malaysia.

Damon presented his Star Eagles at Italians and this was a good chance to test some things.




I presented Palaeo Diet. After I thought to write a supplement for it because I think that it is a great game.



Andrea write too many books so he presented a lot of things: Four Against Darkness, Sellswords, Song of Armies and Hordes. And maybe something more.






And these chaps are our super fans. They always buy all our books and they enjoy the games very much. Thanks!

Again in Empoli for one of the best historical wargame convention. Two days of wargame in September 2017.

Some pics about other things around. The tables quality is rising in these years.






And now a display of costly things in an unreal set, however a beautiful view.

Arena by ARSM

In Roma Wargame 2017 I found this arena for gladiators made by Renato Pacotti. It was built appositely for Ferrum et Gloria. Here some photos about its realisation.

Roma Wargame 2017

The first of a new series of Roman wargame conventions, we hope. A new location before used for railway modelling fairs. And the new proposal for a convention that could call people even from outside Rome. This was exactly a year ago, in these days of 2018 the second edition instead.

A large game of Khartoum hosted by ARSM club. It lasted for the two days of the convention. I conducted some Mahdist forces to glory. I stole most of the photos by a photographic report by Giuseppe D’Aprile. I was too busy to take photos.







A walk around other tables at the convention.










We were in a corridor. The gym hall was for a fair about military stuff, stamps, medals, postcards. In the next edition the wargames will be in this hall together with some miniature vendors.

Hellana 2017

Hellana is one of the most important wargame convention in Italy. I go there almost every year since 2004. And as Ganesha Games we have one or more tables where to present new games and to distribute our stuff. What to say more? Look at tables, games and miniatures. At the end new Mirlinton production.
