Chicago Skirmish Wargames plays Bushido for the first time! (Finally!!)

My club, Chicago Smirmish Wargames, finally played Bushido for the first time, and we loved it. Expect to see more from us soon!

I had to insert some spaces into the link because I apparently can't post anything with a hyperlink, so sorry.

I'm teaching the staff at my FLGS how to polay tomorrow. They picked up Rise of the Kage at Adepticon. Hopefully, I can convince them to carry the line.

Glad to see some other Chicagoland folk are playing.  At least three of us from my local store and a couple more from another picked up the game at Adepticon as well and are starting to play.

We are up in the Grayslake/Wauconda area (NW burbs).  Either Unique Gifts & Games in Grayslake or Lindsay's Gamer Garrison in Wauconda.

Sorry to be doing some thread necromancy but Adepticon has come and gone and has created some players looking to get into the game.  My local store, Grognards in Roselle has gotten a bunch in stock and I am looking players if anyone is still playing!

I actually just picked up a bunch of stuff at Adepticon and from Grognards after the con, and am looking to start playing. I'm up there every Thursday for Infinity, and only live like 5 minutes away :)

Nice!  I am there a few nights but am usually there on Wednesdays with Arena Rex and now Bushido.  I may try and swing in on Thursday to meet you and see about getting a game with you sometime.

I am that person! smiley

 

Leif gave me your number too and I was going to text but had a crazy weekend!  I will catch you Thursday and bring Bushido and my Arena Rex!  

Now I have to work on painting my stuff.  I have some paint on a few of the Bushido figures and I got an order of Sarrissa terrain in to put together.

Haha! awesome! Looking forward to learning the ropes! I'll need to get going on my miniatures too. I think I have a game of Infinity booked in Thursday, but that's all subject to change obviously! Definitely will see you there though, and we can hash out details _\m/

Have you guys been playing down at Grognard? Myself and one other play farther up north but I could maybe make a trip down now and then.

I have been playing there a bit.  been playing more at home but looking to find a day that would work to play at the store.  Been there on a few Mondays and Wednesdays, but Wednesdays are more Batman and Arena Rex for me. 

I'd love to get my butt kicked by someone other than my friend! :)  where do you normally play or what day would be good for you to come down to Grognards?

We normally play up at Lindsay's Gamer Garrison up in Waukonda. It's just me and one other that do Bushido so we don't have a fixed not, just arrange it. My schedule changes week to week but Tues/Wed/Thurs are my best days. A weekend might work sometimes too.

Same at Grogs... its me and one other that are playing regularly.  But my son and another come in every once in a while from Sycamore/DeKalb to play.  However there are 2-3 others at Grognards that have minis but haven't played.  I am trying to lure them out!

We'll have to see how our schedules match up to see if we can get a game in sometime.  Weekends work for me too and my weeknight schedule is flexible, except Wednesday as I am usually doing something at Grognards.  

Are you on the FB Bushido page too?  We might be able to schedule something there.  I am also going to see if Grognards could host a intro tournament or something.  They have a supply of figures so they may be up for it.

Are you heading up to Grognards this Wednesday? If you are, I'll swing buy if you're playing Bushido. It'd be good to see a game in progress so I can get a feel for it :)

I will be at Grognards on Wednesday.  I'm showing Batman to someone but may be able to slide a game of Bushido in depending on who is there.  I will post and let you know if my buddy will be there too.  I will know tonight.

Don't worry if you can't, I'd be purely an observer at this point. I'm painting up my Cult figures so i'll be ready to play in a couple weeks or so :)

I'll be at Grognards tonight but my partner in crime for Bushido will not be there... I'll have my stuff but probably will not be getting a game of Bushido in.
