SAGA at MOAB 2014
I had a great last day of my holidays yesterday down at MOAB, Sydney's biggest annual wargaming event. I took part in the SAGA tournament, and had an absolute blast. Three games over the course of the day, and I was fortunate enough to win the day with my Pagan Rus. Although I've been preoccupied with Battle Group of late, the day reminded me of what a terrific game SAGA is. Every game had a great narrative feel to it, with the epic struggle between my warlord and his Anglo-Saxon counterpart in the first game being particularly memorable.
As always, in my experience, the day was played in the spirit of very friendly and good-natured competition. I don't know what it is about SAGA, but it just doesn't seem to attract dickheads. Long may it continue.
All hail the dice gods.
