We had a great time with 103 gamers at our most recent GMT Weekend at the Warehouse on April 20-23. Thanks to all of you who attended and made the event so much fun!

We do now have dates for our Fall Weekend, so come join us on October 5-8, 2017, for our 34th (!) GMT Weekend at the Warehouse! We’ll spend the better part of 3 1/2 days, often long into the night, playing your favorite GMT (and non-GMT, if you’d prefer) games. This is mostly an open gaming event, although we do have tournaments from time to time.

Gaming starts around 8 each morning and goes until Mike Lam and the Down in Flames Aces event players collapse from exhaustion in the wee hours of the morning.

Quite a few GMT Designers and Developers usually attend these weekends, but we don’t know yet for certain who’ll be here in the Fall. We’ll be updating this list often between now and the event as we know exactly who’s attending this time.

  • Gene Billingsley will run a Friday demo and test Mr. President.
  • Designer Ananda Gupta will make his first appearance at a Weekend at the Warehouse! He’ll be demoing Imperial Struggle on Friday and Saturday.
  • Designer Mike Denson will be demoing The Last Hundred Yards.
  • Jason Carr will be demoing Bruce Mansfield’s Gandhi.
  • John Zrimc will be hosting his bi-annual game of Sword of Rome on Friday.
  • As usual, Mike Lam will be running the Down in Flames Aces Event – which.is.awesome! Come join Mike and a friendly group of air enthusiasts in this fast-action card game of aerial mayhem!

Playing the Story in GMT’s Enemy Coast Ahead: The Doolittle Raid

4 people like this

In one of the Harry Potter books, author J.K. Rowling presents a device called a pensieve. Characters peer into this stone basin to see events experienced by other people. Those memories are removed from a person’s head like wispy spaghetti and dropped into the magic bowl, and the “viewer” peers into the basin for the experience. The word “viewer” has to be in quotation marks because they do more than merely see the memory. They walk around in it and feel the space and hear the sounds, and one presumes, smells the scent alive in the scene they uncannily inhabit. By “playing” the memory, the “viewer” lives in another’s shoes.
