8th March Games

Greetings

Fair turnout last night. Steve S and Andy P ran board games, whilst I 'entertained' Steve H and Josh with a Space Hulk mission. Suffice to say that Genestealers rule OK!

Current plans for next week are for a 15mm WW2 game to be organised by John, while I run a Lion Rampant game expanding on the rearguard action I offered recently, primarily to give my new Norman force a runout. Book your place to avoid disappointment.

See yer soon

15th March Games

Greetings

We ran two games last night; John presented his early WW2 15mm game involving a French counter attack on the German armour advance.


Whilst I put on a Lion Rampant Norman vs Norse game for Dave K, Steve H and Josh. The Norse got away with the relics of St. Haribo again, in spite of some truly appalling movement rolls. An enjoyable game, but the scenario still needs work to give the Normans a decent chance of stopping the Norse escape.


Next week; Dave K will run 'Last Night on Earth', and everyday tale of zombies in America. I'll bring Hold the Line, an AWI board game I picked up at Cavalier recently.

See yer soon

1st March Games

Greetings

There were enough of us present last night to run a further test of Mark's fantasy barbarian skirmish game; debate over proposed rule changes was (as usual) 'lively'.



The nature of next week's games is currently uncertain; Steve s has agreed to supply some board games. i can bring 'The hobbit' game, but will have to think about alternatives and post this in due course.

See yer soon

Cavalier 2017

Greetings

Well, that's the first show of the year out of the way! The zombie apocalypse game was well received, if not appreciated in the Best Game category. my thanks to Dave K for preparing and running the game, assisted by Mark, Andy, Josh and the Steves; we certainly had the interest and those who played all appeared to have enjoyed themselves.



And yes, I had a lovely retail therapy session.

Wednesday night's game will feature Mark's on-going barbarian fantasy game with some rules tweaks he has made; I hope to bring a new AWI board game as aquired on Sunday as back up, but I'll find something in any case.

See yer soon

23rd February Games

Greetings

Only four of us this week - was it something I said?

Dave K, Steve S, josh and I settled down to run through the scenario Dave had put together for the game at Cavalier on Sunday; this worked out well and we should be able to run the game OK. If anyone has any problems regarding the show, please let me know asap. show details can be found at www.twws.org.

No decision has been made as yet concerning the games for next Wednesday due to the reduced numbers this week. Something to be discussed on Sunday, but if anyone has any ideas, let's hear them!

See yer soon

15th February Games

Greetings

Reasonable turnout this week;

Andy P ran his samurai skirmish game, held over from last week.


While I ran a Lion Rampant game to introduce my recently completed Norman force to the rules; Josh was able to get his Viking warlord off table with the fabled relics of Saint Haribo, but lost the bulk of his force to achieve this. The Normans will take a bit of getting used to, but I enjoyed the game.

Next week, wth the run-up to Cavalier on 26/2/17, Dave K has agreed to run a trial game for the zombie apocalypse scenario he has been working on. I have been able to put together a sign for the game and will provide backup table bits where necessary. Any other game offers?

Finally, I would like to offer our congratulations and best wishes to Dave Crook and his long term/long-suffering partner Laurel, who were married on Monday last. I was fortunate enough to attend the wedding and I am sure they will be very happy together.

See yer soon

8th February Games

Reasonable turnout this week;

Steve H and I had a quick ACW naval game while discussing possible amendments to the rules in the event of a future display game.

While Mark ran a further play-test of this fantasy skirmish rules.



Next week I'll run a Lion's Rampant game to christen my recently completed Norman force; Steve S has offered to bring some board games, but another game would be nice . . .

See yer soon
