1st Infinity Game-Day Vienna 17.03.2018 – A Summary
Summed up it was a great event, everyone had a blast and especially we had an overwhelmingly good atmosphere from the beginning to the end. On purpose, I did not use the wording of a tournament as my goal was to emphasize on keeping a casual atmosphere.
Even more, it was a huge success by means of connecting the Infinity gamers in and outside of Vienna. I was so surprised we managed to have 10 participants on board who shared a day playing and fighting through the missions J. It was great to visit new players, old friends and connect them to the Wulpertinger community.
Here are the Players:
- Blade_Runner_007 – (NCA)
- Branch – (Tohaa)
- Clank99 – (Onyx)
- emperorsaistone – (Hassassin Bahram)
- Rotfuchs – (Corregidor)
- Sorbus – (Vanilla PanO)
- Strange(r) – (Vanilla Haqqislam)
- Sword_36 – (Vanilla Yu Jing)
- System_Override (JSA)
- Yasashii Fuyu1 (ISS)
One point for improvement for the next events is definitely to have more playing time & breaks. Nevertheless, it worked out fine for this event.
We played three missions starting at 11am – finishing at 7pm
- Mission 1: Deadly Dance
- Mission 2: Highly Classified
- Mission 3: Acquisition
I want to express at this point many thanks to all of you helping me out in order to prepare the Game-Day: System_Override & Snotl for renting me some terrain J and Branch for helping me setting up the game tables the day before the event!
So here are some pictures of the prepared tables:
Just the way I was hoping it would turn out… almost everyone fielded a TAG for the Deadly Dance mission 😛 Gorgos, Maghariba Guard, O’Yoroi, Jotum, etc. .. all those beasts were present and the commanders fought hard in this mission (i like to call it TAG-Wars :-P)
The pairing for the missions was decided randomly and we had quite nice surprises here 🙂
Mission 1 – Deadly Dance:
Mission 2 – Highly Classified:
Mission 3 – Acquisition:
Enjoy the pictures of the Event:

System_Override deployed a beautifully painted O’Yoroi… too bad my Jotum blasted it away 🙂

So after several hours we managed to finish the event – all exhausted but satisfied.
Congratulations to Emperorsaistone for the first Place!
Here is the ranking from our tournament:
System_Override won the magical spoonbut as well a 10€ gift certificate for the award of the fair player!
I still have to add we had no unfair player 🙂 but nevertheless, System_Override earned it well!
Here are the prizes:
Thanks again to all participants it was a blast! I enjoyed the beer afterwards a lot with you and can’t wait to see you in July at the next event 🙂
