24th May Games

Greetings

Enough of us on hand last night to run two games. Steve H and I played an Airfix WW2 board game - not with any great success on my part as I haven't read the rules in ages. Mark ran his barbarian fantasy game with a beautiful 3-D dungeon layout.

Next week; Andy P will run a Samurai game, whilst Chris and I have a Lion Rampant session planned.

See yer soon

17th May Games

Greetings

Fair turnout on a very wet evening this week; Dave K ran a further Pulp Alley/Sweeney game.


Whilst, Steve H and I tried some refinements to the Poseidon's Warriors game.


Next week, Mark has offered to flex his mighty thews and run his new Barbarians game (Crom!). Not sure what I will offer yet, but will advise when I decide.

See yer soon

3rd May Games

Greetings

A quick change of Games on my part this week; the Napoleonic naval game has been put back and a Poseidon's Warriors game substituted. Josh and Steve H played, whilst I umpired - both are happy with the way the rules work and we continue for the game's show premier at Broadside on 11/6/17.


Dave K ran a Sweeney inspired Pulp Alley game notable for the absence of kipper ties . . . .



Our AGM is scheduled for the next Wednesday to start at 8.15 sharp. Please try to attend as we have some serious issues to address, a few quick board games for afterwards might be handy as well.

See yer soon

26th April Games

Greetings

Reasonable turnout last night - Steve S ran a Car Wars game and I umpired the AWI board game ' Hold the Line'; we played the Lexington and Concord scenario, which resulted in a further win for the Crown forces. Bunker Hill next tim methinks.



We also had a visit from Tim who found us using Google-Fu but apparently knew of SEEMS from our days at the Rocheway Centre (when dinosaurs ruled the Earth!)

Next week Dave K will run a Sweeney based Pulp Alley game, whilst I will run a Napoleonic Naval game at Tim's request.

See yer soon

19th April Games

Greetings

Thanks to Dave K for running a Western gunfight game for those attending last night. Steve H and I had a quick run out with Poseidon's Warriors to give him a taste of how the rules work; this was generally successful.

Next week I'l bring the AWI board game 'Hold the line', while Steve S has agreed to run a car wars game.

Salute at Excel is this Saturday - I expect I'll see a few of you there.

13th April Games

Greetings

Travel problems left us a bit short-handed last night; I put my Poseidon's Warriors game on hold to allow Steve S to run an experimental Star Trek game for those attending. The basic mechanisms work OK and Steve made notes during the game for a number of changes. i'm pretty sure I have a number of similar models in Area 51.1 (aka my loft) so I'll have a look and see what I can find.

Therefore, next week I will try to run my Poseidon's Warriors play test. Dave K has offered to run an Old West Gunfight using Pulp Alley rules. See you then.

29th March Games

Greetings

My thanks to Steve S for hosting a board game last night; whilst I ran a 36AP Lion Rampant Anglo-Norman vs Norse game for Josh, Alan and Dave K. Both sides suffered with poor movement dice rolls at various times, but Dave was able to inflict serious casualties on the Norman cavalry (guys-charging shield walls hurts!), although he couldn't complete the scenario requirements for victory in the time available. I still gave him the benefit of a winning draw for a gutsy fight . Based on last night the Normans can be very effective, but require careful co-ordination.

No firm decisions for games next week as yet; I hope to be able to run Poseidon's Warriors (ancient naval rules by Osprey) provided a play test this weekend goes OK.

See yer soon
