26th October Games


My thanks to Mark for running his SWAT game for the benefit of those attending last night - apparently a U.S. Presidential candidate didn't survive the game, but it would be invidious to name the deceased politician . . .

 Steve H and I settled to a Space Hulk game; Suicide Mission which lived up to it's name, but the Deathwing put up a good fight before being wiped out ('stealers rool OK).

Next week, Dave K has offered to run a Pulp Alley game, while I have it in mind to run a pre-dreadnought or WW1 naval game.

See yer soon

19th October Games


My thanks to Dave K for running his zombie apocalypse game using the new terrain mat he 'acquired' at SELWG: Chris and I took the opportunity to play a properly medieval Lion Rampant, which Chris won.

We also had a visitor, whose name I unfortunately, didn't catch, who is working in the area for a while and may visit us from time to time during that period. Always nice to see a new face. . .

Next week, Mark has offered to run either his SWAT game or a Lord of the Rings action. Not sure what I'll bring yet, but I am open to requests.

See yer soon

12th October Games


A fair turnout on a rather wet Wednesday:

Andy P ran a further play-test of his Samurai Rules.

Whilst, I put on an ACW naval game for Chris and Josh, which turned out to be particularly messy, only two confederate ships survived out of all those present on both sides at the start.

Next week, Dave K has offered to run a zombie game, whilst Chris has offered to run a Lion Rampant game with his 13th century Anglo-Scottish Collection.

See yer soon
