21st February Games

Greetings

Thanks to Steve H for running the cheerful mayhem that is Zombicide last night; this time the Green Horde (undead orcs) put in an appearance; great fun as always.


Special mentions to Rob and Mark who ran a Roaring Twenties gangster game using the new Osprey rules. Thanks to Andy P for a couple of card games he put on. Hopefully, we will be able to run something more substantial in the future.


This Sunday sees our first show of the year - Cavalier at Tonbridge. Our offering will be the Big Tanks WW2 participation game.
Next week, we'll run some Zombicide Green Horde again, while Andy P will offer his Asian Invasion game.

See yer soon

14th February Games

Greetings

The scheduled games were replaced by Mark's Retro Raygun sci-fi game and a colonial game run by Chris and Andy H using The Men Who Would Be Kings rules. The more I watch the latter set of rules in action, the more I like them and find myself considering other periods in which they could be used; the American Civil War comes to mind. . .

Next week, Steve H will run the promised Zombicide game, and Steve S and I will bring some backup. A reminder that we are attending the Cavalier show in Tonbridge on 25/02/18, where I'll run the Big Tanks game - and questions, please feel free to contact me direct.

7th February Games

Greetings

The trial game of Terminator Genisys took place last night - thanks to Steve S and Dave K for organising and providing the scenery for the game. We were able to run two games, the second using the expanded rules intended for the game rather than the core set supplied with what is after all a starter set. This transformed the loss rate of the human resistance fighters! The idea is to run this as a game later this year at a show but we still need to work on the rules and the scenarios.

Next week, I understand that Andy P intends to run a Conan based game, while Steve H will bring a new version of Zombicide along. I'll bring something as backup.

See yer soon

31st January Games

Greetings

Thanks to Mark for running a Lord of the Rings game last night; Men of Rohan with Elvish support tried to hold a position in the face of an all out Uruk-Hai assault, which ended with thoughts of 'last stand' and 'massacre' crossing my mind. A game enjoyed by all nonetheless.



Next week, we plan another Terminator Genisys game; I'd like to offer this as a game for SELWG in October, so if Dave K can bring his zombie apocalypse terrain, I'll bring my figures and we'll see what we can plan.

See yer soon

24th January Games

Busy night over at Wayland Games, but we were able to grab a table for Steve S' delayed Doctor Who game. The Tenth Doctor and UNIT were able to defeat a force of Darleks, but I think the Master may have made off with the prize.

Next week, Mark has offered to run a Lord of the Rings skirmish and I'll bring Memoir 44 as a back up.

See yer soon

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
