Various tournaments, boardgames and CCG games take place in the various conference rooms located just off the ballroom. Miniature games large and small are held in a separate section of the ballroom. A large, multi-player game of Flames of War dominated the center of the room. Played with 20mm (1/72) models and scenery, this game also served to introduce new players to the game. It was put on by a local gaming club out of Northridge, California.

This game pitted a U.S. Armored Company of Shermans against a dug-in German PanzerGrenadier Company on one end of the table; with a British armored troop with accompanying infantry and Paras attempting to drive German S.S. from the village on the other end of the table.

The Paras and Fallschirmjagers mixed it up in close combat, but poor die rolls led to a standoff for a brief period before the Paras were forced to withdraw with heavy casualties.

Armor and infantry dueled it out among the hedgerows.
