Last Saturday was GA Lardy Day at Gigabites Café in Marietta and it seemed to be a success.
We had dozens of people playing in 6 good looking games. An incredible variety that barely hit upon some of the various Toofatlardies rules.
Jim Schmidt ran his Coastal Patrol rules with a September 43 Mediterranean setting as the Allies attempted to intercept a Axis supply run. The Italians didn't know who to fight since is was the day after their country surrendered.
John Ford had a massive 6 person Sharp Practice 2 Never Never Land Pirate game in 28mm. Dutch, Spaniards, Caribe Indians, English, French, some Scots on horseback, and lots of wildlife. I don't know what wasn't in it!
There were no Russians though, They were in Matt's 6 person Winter 42 Kotelnikovo Station Chain of Command game. Incredible scenery that lowered the temperature in the room and I think caused me to catch a cold. It was so cool we played it twice.
William's Carentan Chain of Command game with US paras and the 17th SS was a superb layout that got 6 new players into the Lard. First CoC game I've seen that had 2 random events.
Chris Stoesen had a 15mm SP 2 Pirate game that featured the Spaniards raiding a Corsair controlled village during the Golden Age of Piracy.
I ran a 6 player Burma 45 Chain of Command that had a hypothetical armor clash between the 254th Indian Tank Brigade and Japanese 15th Div.among the dry rice paddies and a Burmese shrine

Had a great time and wished I could have stayed for all sessions. Good to see that many historical games where the tables are usually populated by xwing and 40k. Both fun but a nice change and hopefully we can host a few more mainly historical game days in the future. I would love to run some TSATF for some colonial battles.

Glad you made it and we do plan on running more historical days.
We need to work on getting a bigger crowd in later. We had some great games later in the day and could've run even more.

Looks great. Just wish it was in Marietta, NY where I live!

Fine looking event!
Good job getting the scenario placards in the shots too (just that much more interesting info added – and they look great too).
