17th January Games

Greetings

Attendance this week was servery affected by seasonal lurgy - Mark and Steve H, hope you're both feeling much better by the time you read this. Steve S' Doctor Who game was set aside until next week, and we played two games of the initial Space Hulk scenario 'Bridgehead'. The Marines got their armoured botties kicked in the first game, but managed to win the second game.
As noted above, Steve S will run his Doctor Who game next week; I'll bring something else as back up.

With regard to upcoming shows, I have now received details for Cavalier on 25/2/18 in Tonbridge. We appear to be in the hall with the Bring and Buy - no bad thing for bargains! I've also received an invitation for Broadside on 10/6/18 at Sittingbourne. Given the table size restrictions at this show, I've decided to run the Battlefleet Gothic scenario we played a while back as this fits nicely on a small table.

Whilst typing this email, I took delivery of a new display stand for future use at shows. This will help to make our games look more professional at the shows we attend.

See yer soon

10th January Games

Greetings

Mark ran his Barbarian Fantasy game for the bulk of those present - apparently the young woman who couldn't afford any clothes was rescued, but only after the demise of Jon's barbarian hero who was supposed to supply the muscle!


Mike C, Steve B, Steve H and I, played Lords of Waterdeep, which proved to be an interesting evening even if I did finish last.


Steve S has offered to run a Doctor Who game next week, whilst I propose to bring Space Hulk for those not participating in the former. Also, I note from the TWWS website that we have been offered a table at Cavalier 2018 on 25/2/18 to run my Big Tanks game. More details as I receive them.

See yer soon

3rd January Games

Greetings

Just the Steves, Mark and I turned out last night (doubtless poor weather/post Christmas lurgi etc, accounted for the rest) which enabled us to try out the Terminator Genesys game. The rules (while not perfect) play a lot better than previous feedback had indicated - I'd like to look at this from the view point of a future show game later this year. Terrain supplied by Wayland Games which suited the post-apocalyptic feel of the game.

Mark has offered to run his Barbarian Fantasy game next week, so I hope we'll see a few more of you onsite. I will bring something as back-up.

See yer soon

20th December Games

Greetings

Last night saw the return of the annual bout of insane mayhem we refer to as 'The Christmas Game' as organised by Steve S; predictably this involved dinosaurs and cowboys (as you do), which gave me the chance to revenge myself on those playing by running the dinosaurs as an equal opportunity menace! The dino's didn't do so well this year, suffering major casualties and failing to prevent Mark and (I think) Josh from finding the lost gold mine.



Although Wayland Games is open on 27/12/17, it has been agreed that we need to recover from the war on food/booze/tv for the week. Accordingly, SEEMs will reconvene on Wednesday 3/1/18 when the plan is to give the Terminator Genesis game a try.

Thanks to Scott and all at Wayland for their hospitality since our arrival earlier this year; may the deity of your choice shower you with blessings in the coming year and may your Christmas be the colour you feel most appropriate to your needs.

See yer next year

December 13th Games

Greetings

A few of us were involved in board and card games run this week by Steve S (my thanks as usual).

Next week's game will be the annual Christmas game, which Steve S will run. This will be The Valley of Gwanji, and will of course involve cowboys and dinosaurs (Steve, I'll bring the WWE confederates but if you require more conventional Old West figures, let me know). I'd like to offer the chance to play to the other denizens of Wayland Games so Scott, if you would be so kind as to reserve us a six foot table for this purpose and put the word about, I'd be most grateful.

See yer soon

29th November Games

Greetings

The Steves ran their planned Warmachine game last night; Steve H was apparently the victor.


I ran 'The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey' board game as an alternative for the rest of those present. The game followed it's usual pattern of anarchy, back stabbing and Tolkeinian double ententes until Dave K ran out as winner in his guise of Thornin Oakenshield.


Next week, Steve S has offered to run a WW1 Wings of War game. Steve H is looking at a board game based on the first Viking raids on England, whilst I'll bring Battle Cry to soak up any additional players.

See yer soon
