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.

Play 2018: mechas

Even in a convention based on boardgames, and games in general, you can find something different as mecha models made by artisans as Kallamity. Moreover this was the first time that I saw Dust models in a stand. I like 1946 concepts, even if I dislike historical WWII vehicles with legs added. Some of their mechas could be useful for wargame in 28mm, but soldiers are bigger. On the other things, there were a lot of great and extremely big Gundam models but I haven’t the right photos about them to show to you.
