Firelands Games is a club that showcases a variety of miniature and board games at unique events, with the goal of bringing new and experienced players together. Founding members are, left to right, James Tolbert, Rusty Parker and John Patrick.

The Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton has long been long known for its collection of antique aircraft and its iconic Tin Goose, the Ford Tri-Motor that began the nation’s quest for public air travel. But the museum is also becoming a cutting-edge location for more modern displays, and this weekend will host a state of the art gaming convention.

The Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton will be featuring “Hold the Line” on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15-16, a historical miniatures convention throughout the museum galleries, hangars and grounds at 3515 East State Rd., Port Clinton, just east of the Erie Ottawa County international Airport.

The event is organized by Firelands Games, a recreational gaming club that showcases a variety of miniature and board games at unique events with the goal of bringing new and experienced players together.

The event is free with normal paid admission to the Liberty Aviation Museum. Special hotel discounts are available. Visit Firelands Games ( for details, including additional information or gaming registration.

“The ‘Hold the Line’ gaming convention is one of the first events hosted by the museum in an effort to expand its appeal to a larger segment of the population,” said Communications and Marketing Coordinator James R. Priebe of Liberty Aviation Museum.

“Museums are often thought of as places to see old things. We want our museum to be a living and breathing showcase that appeals to those looking for new things to discover, too!”

Priebe pointed out that the “Hold the Line” game boards can exceed the size of a two-car garage with incredible game rules and attention to detail. At the gaming convention at Liberty Aviation Museum, a “Saga” tournament and a “Bolt Action” tournament will be the featured events.

For new and seasoned gamers alike there will be a variety of learn-to-play sessions, historical game scenarios, role playing adventures and a wealth of interesting displays.

While on-line gaming has seen significant growth, thanks to Covid isolation practices in recent years, miniature gaming events like “Hold the Line” have become popular for both history enthusiasts and miniature game piece artisans.
