FlamesCon 2012 presents:
War of Flames!
The Flames Of War Third-Person First-Person Shooter Miniatures Wargame
Last year Sean and I enjoyed bringing together popular culture and the Flames Of War mechanics to create two silly arcade games (one based on Space Invaders, and the other based on the Death Star trench run). This year we wanted to do something similar and we ran through a couple of ideas of how to marry popular game themes into a silly little game on the tabletop using Flames Of War. We considered Pac-man, tower defence games, and more until one day we got to talking about Battlefield 1942 and first-person shooters.
Over a few lunch breaks we drafted some rules that tried to recreate a first-person shooter game using the Flames Of War game system. Thus began War of Flames!
So this year at FlamesCon, players can login to one of our two servers. These will be pretty basic, even for War of Flames, but stick around after hours on Saturday and be ready to join a much larger server!
So, to prepare for the event and generate some excitement (as well as some pre-event feedback), we’ll be releasing the War of Flames rulebook in three instalments leading up to FlamesCon on 17 November 2012. Stay tuned after the event to hear about how the games played and we’ll also upload a final copy of the game so that players around the world can have a crack at the premiere Flames Of War Third-Person First-Person Shooter Miniatures Wargame!
Without further ado, here is part one:
