We managed to fit 5 players in a day long hunt for the golden Secret of Atlantis, hidden in the Atlantean temple on the center island. Players were tasked with finding clues on the island, using their land troops to battle hostile forts, dinosaurs and erupting volcanoes. All ships were issued the ability to carry tanks and to land their Assault Points as Marines on the islands.
Here you see the table at the start of the game, still very neat.....

Another overview of the table from the opposite side. Note the KoB fleet landing tanks on the island in the foreground.
Covenant flyers landing walkers on an island, looking for clues to enter the Temple at a later stage.
The central island with the Atlantean Temple, still peaceful at this point...
Sea monsters attacking Brittannian cruiser. Weren´t these an extinct species you ask? Well, after this fight they were....
Various fleets converging on the island in a last bid for the Endgame.
And the Winner! Officially he had to exit the table as well, but it was almost five o´clock and the convention was closing, so we decided that first grabs determined the winner.
As this game was a testrun for the Great Garden Battle for this summer, I can look forward to another run in a few months. The rules worked quite well, only requiring some tuning down of hostile cities and monsters.
A very enjoyable day by all accounts!
