24th September Games

Tonight was a busy night at club, with three games being run.

First up is Chris and Dave's, mismatched HoTTs game.

Second is Neil's group participation game of ACW Ironclads in anticipation of the Essex Warrior's show on Sunday. It looked like this game went down really well.

Last up is my impromptu teaching game of Saga for one of our newer members, Paul. He mentioned he was thinking about getting involved and I just happened to have my figures on me.

A reminder that Essex Warriors Open Day will take place on Sunday 28th September at Writtle Village Hall. Doors open to the public at 10 am and close at 4 pm. Entrance is free.

Attractions include a number of display and participation games, trade stands, refreshments, and the ever popular Bring and Buy.  

The traders booked to attend are Wayland Games, Andy’s Models and Games Gazette. Tolehaven are also attending as part of the Hornchurch club game.

       Thanks to Dave Knightly for running his Border Reivers show game in anticipation of SELWG. Laurie and Mark's Scot raiders won, getting all 3 barrels of gold out of the well and off their table edge, but not before losing a substantial amount of men to a couple of strangely powerful dogs.

10th September Games

Thanks to Dave for running his Border Reivers game this week for those present; it was a suitably bloodthirsty affair which resulted in the Scots getting a bloody nose.

Dave has offered to run another Reiver game in the run up to SELWG, as this is the game we will be presenting there.

I intend to run an ACW Ironclad game the week after as a quick test before we attend the Essex Warriors Open Day at Writtle on the 28th; hope to see you then and also in the depths of Essex the following weekend.

See yer soon,
