Two other new-to-me demos I played were Frostgrave from Osprey and Battlegroup by Ironfist Publishing. The author was running Frostgrave. It was neat, but I didn't really get excited about it. The same goes for Battlegroup. I liked it, but it didn't really seem to give me anything I can't get from Flames of War. Based on just the demo, it does seem to be a bit simpler to pick up than Fow, but it has a random chit system to determine morale failure - and the end of the game - that I didn't really care for. Also, it is easy to pin units, especially infantry, but the only way to unpin them is to draw one of the chits against your morale. Units can't do anything when they're pinned.
I also got in numerous games of DBA 3.0 and Commands and Colors Ancients, both favorites of mine.
So now for the somewhat meager acquisitions and a few random photos. I didn't really take a lot of pics - I was so busy running around doing stuff I didn't really think about it.
