Edit: I've removed the photos from public view.  Event organizers had privacy concerns, and since photography is just a hobby for me, I'm not going to be taking the time & effort to blur or crop faces & badges out of those photos.

It was bitter cold in Ottawa yesterday and (understandably) none of the regular players showed up, but a couple of Magic players from the front room came over for some demo games.  Here's a photo from the end of the first round of the second demo game I ran:

Had another game with Jon yesterday.  We started a little late, and elected to just use the demo setup instead of having a full two-player game.

Image
Demo Setup by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
Jon took the blue & gray and gray & blue frames, I took the dark green and dark red frames.

Jon also chose to be the defender in the scenario, which meant I would have to fight an uphill battle to win.

The station in the middle of the table is a crate of peaches.

Image
First Blood by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
One of Jon's frames damages one of mine in his first turn of the first round of combat.

Image

Plenty of damage to cover, little damage to Jon's frames as I return fire.

Image
End of the First Round by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
Some damage here and there, but no frames have been destroyed, and no-one has taken the station.

(I failed to keep a good record of the end of round conditions after this, so the rest of the photos blur together the rest of the game)

Image
The Battle Swings in  My Favour by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
My frames take the station and destroy one of Jon's frames, putting me in the lead.  But victory isn't secure yet.

Image
One of My Frames Destroyed by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
I'm still ahead in points, but the battle is getting tougher.

Image
Second Frame Destroyed by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
With another frame down, Jon is ahead in points again and has the initiative.

Image
Pressure is On by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
Jon's frame tries to winkle me out of position.

Image
Denied by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
My frames crush a second of Jon's frames, tieing the game.

Image
Last Gamble by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
My last attempt to secure victory before the clock ran out.

Image
End of the Game by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr
The game ends in a tie as I keep posession of the station, but fail to destroy any more of Jon's frames.

It was a fun game, still using only my demo frames, though Jon has started building his own.  I should also do some more building of frames, terrain and stations before the next demo day in March.

Everytime you post a new date I tell myself I should go this time. I swear I'll make it to one of your demo sessions. I got into MF0 briefly when it first got big, but never got around to trying the actual game, but it does seem like quite a good game.

And if the dates I've set aren't good for you, let me know a date that is, and maybe I can give you a demo then.

I'll also be running demos at CanGames on the Victoria Day weekend in May, if you're in town then.
