Fall Gaming Season Begins
at Hometown Comics
The summer break ended and the new gaming season began for the Indy Squadron on October 14 at Hometown Comics in Greenfield, Indiana. Five gamers were present for the first gaming since Dory Oda won Indy's Red Baron Fight in late May, including new player Thomas Hood.
An important and enjoyable feature of the day was allowing players some control over airplane choice. Rather than playing only with strict adherence to random charts, the basic scenario was determined after which players were allowed to roll percentile dice with the highest roll choosing their nationality. In the final game, the date was determined and players chose any aircraft available that month. The Indy Squadron did this regularly throughout the 1990s and it was a fun and refreshing way to allow players to build their rosters in needed areas rather than entirely by blind, random rolls.
