Imagine if the US and Britain hadn’t come to agreements after the fall of the Martians before V-M Day: bickering among the Russian powers tied up vital supplies and treaties hindered tech exchanges; Germany and Italy have split; European politics would create their own new enemies in the Prussian Empire; Emperor Hirohito will not be caught between China and Russia, two warring nations; and Japan will never surrender her Manchurian territory on the eve of recurring hostilities between the two powers. World War I looks like it is about to begin.

Description: The year is 1795, A great Rent has torn open reality and sunk most of Europe beneath the waves. Only one place stands untouched by the calamity: Venice.
By day the city bustles, the Queen of the Adriatic taking pride of place once again as the West’s capital of trade. However, by night Venice takes on a darker persona, both figuratively and literally masking itself. Gangs stalk the canals looking for blood, the clandestine secret societies making themselves known, fighting to carve out their own territories. Run and jump from roof top to roof top, swim the canals or take a gondola to escape your foes. Carnevale is a great cinematic skirmish game from TT Combat and can play 2-4 people. Come give it a try.

If you run an event or events for at least four hours, your weekend badge fee will be waived. Table space will be 60 inches by six feet.

Please fill out the form below with your event (if you’d like to run multiple events, please fill out a separate form for each) and if you have any questions, please let me know via email at atom@tabletopminions.org and I’ll get you sorted.
