Singapore Toys, Games, and Comics Convention 2018

Blitz & Peaces at STGCC 2018
with Benjamen Lin
This past weekend, Blitz and Peaces decided to hit the Singapore Toys, Games, and Comics Convention (STGCC). We decided to do as much as possible to raise awareness of the Flames of War game, Team Yankee and TANKS!

We had 2 major draws for the show:

  • Firestorm Red Thunder
  • Stalingrad Buildings Showcase

First up, we decided to use our tournament area to hold a live Red Thunder campaign. This was a blast! We had NATO and Warsaw Pact commanders smashing head to head from dawn to dusk.

The very first game resulted in a  6 – 1 victory for the Soviets which saw them win Hanover. NATO counterattacks pushed them back out and into red territory in the afternoon and the first day ended with a single territory from eastern Germany in NATO hands. The second day brought some serious fighting around Dresden which was almost lost to NATO.

Right: The the end result of the campaign. (click the image for a larger version)

Defending Capitalism the whole day. Infantry are inside looking for Flat Pack Mobile cover.

I was on site as the embedded war correspondent.

This didn’t stop me from joining a few rounds to help the reds. NATO shot at a press reporter...

The Second thing we had was a 4 x 4 ft Showcase table for Stalingrad. We placed 6 snipers in the ruined city and anyone who could find them would get to roll a dice and see what they get.

As an idea of how hard they were to spot, in the picture to the right. There is a sniper here in the second bottom window from the right. Remember they have to spot them from about 3-4 feet away.

This didn’t stop people from winning though. Some spent 3 minutes, and gave up, some spent 3 hours, went for lunch and came back for another hour to find the last one. All of them shared the photos on Facebook.
