Hi

Just interested in what gaming systems were popular at MOAB this year?

What were the numbers in WM/H compared to 40K? Is anyone playing WFB or is Kings of War more popular? Are people playing Bolt Action or Flames of War? Was there any Napoleonics? What Ancients rulesets were used and which was the most popular?

Regards

Mark C

Hi Mark, I know there were 6 players in the Epic 40K: Armageddon system....that is all.

I hear it was up on numbers from last year according to event ticket sales.

Hi Mark - Age of Sigmar and 40k were popular, so was Bolt Action and Chain of Command. X-Wing got a good number of players. WM/H I don't think ran at all this year, same with Kings of War - it looked as though Age of Sigmar was the popular fantasy choice. There was no Napoleonics comp but the Fire and Fury (new updated rules) participation game and the Sharp Pracrice Napoleonic participation game were excellent and I believe the traders sold out of those rule books by Sunday arvo. Popularity re Ancients seemed evenly split between Impetus, Sword and Spear, DBA, and Art de la Guerre. Wasn't much in the way of FoG.
