19th November Games

       A good turn out this week to play Dave's Zombie game, which is always popular whenever it is run. This time it had much more of a futuristic feel to it than it normally does.

      The mission specifics this time were;
  • Destroy the alien ship, as this is the cause of the zombie outbreak.
  • Find two lots of supplies and a single canister of fuel.
  • Escort any civilians off of the table.
  • Survive.
The alien ship in the brown thing at the bottom of the picture.

       Once it was established that only one survivor actually had the explosives on them, the alien ship was quickly destroyed, but in our haste to achieve that mission objective, we had been split into two groups who struggled to clear enough zombies to really regroup and we lost our first civilian to a zombie attack. 

The last stand of Paul and James, before James was tricked into drawing the zombies off.

      The rest of the game was mostly just survivors splitting off into ever smaller groups to try and raid the shipping containers or search for more supplies in other places, with different degrees of success. The game ended with a big group of civilians helped off the table edge, all supplies and fuel found, Laurie hiding from the zombies while carrying pretty much all the weaponry left in the game, Lance standing on a mound of dead zombies after being locked in combat for almost half the game and James our only casualty after being tricked into being a diversion.

Next week 15mm WW2.

12th November Games


My thanks to Steve H for providing transport this week due to my car deciding to take another day off (all fixed now - hopefully), which allowed me to run the Napoleonic naval game I had promised. The scenario went well for a first run out, and will feature again with a couple of tweaks.

Mark ran a Gothic Horror game which occupied the rest of those present.

I won't be down next week due to work commitments, but I believe Dave Kightly has offered to run one of his very popular zombie games.Any other offers would be appreciated, as would notification of games for the week after.  
Future news concerns the first bookings for 2015. I have received requests for the Cavalier show at Tonbridge on 22/2/15 and for the Broadside show at Sittingbourne in June. Both require responses in the near future. While I propose to take care of Broadside as usual, can we consider which games we might take to Tonbridge as a priority please? Any ideas please contact me direct.

See yer soon,
