100 Years of War Sunday 29th September 2019

Post by Dave Knight » 07 Jul 2019, 09:56

I am running this again now in its 7th year

Usual info below - let me know if you would like to participate

Date: Sunday 29th September 2019

Timing: 10:00 – 17:00 (2 gaming sessions with a short break in between for lunch)

Venue: Newlands Community Centre, Montgomery Street, Grangemouth, FK3 8QR

Cost: Free – tea and coffee (and possibly biscuits!) will be available without charge from the kitchen

Notes for Those putting on games

Each game should be capable of being run in full in one of the 2 gaming sessions and will normally only run once. The expectation is that games will be run by individuals or small groups. Think participation game rather than demonstration game. Any system from 1900 onwards, land, sea or air.

Those taking part will have varying levels of experience as wargamers and might have not played the rules system before – indeed some people use this event as an opportunity to have a go at a new system so please bear this in mind when designing your scenarios.

Tables and boards are available as is some club terrain if needed

If you put a game on hopefully you will be able to take part in another game during the other session and you will have first choice of which one you want to take part in

Please contact Dave Knight with details of the game as soon as you can. An initial statement of intent is helpful but please forward details of those putting the game on. period, scale, board size and number of participants as soon as you can and by mid-September at the latest if at all possible. An example would be John Smith and Joe Brown, Normandy 1944, 15mm, Chain of Command 6 x 4 table 2 – 6 participants. Also advise if you expect to play in the other session.

Notes for game participants

You will have the opportunity to play 2 games during the day, although if you can only make one session this is no problem.

You will be able to state a preference of which games you want to take part in nearer the time, but please be aware that your first choice may not be available and you may be asked to take part in a different game. If this causes you a major issue please have a quiet word on the day.

Part of the fun is to mix people from different clubs and for you to have a chance to play something new, but the primary aim is for us all to have 2 fun games so no strict rules apply other than normal sensible behaviour.

Well done Dave Knight!
Rolling this games event on over six, now seven years is quite a feat.
And seeing the variety of what you have on offer is also a big achievement.
Pity my visits north of the border have lapsed in last 12 months and I am not going to make it this year.
Must get my act on the road, and make more of such wargames events in 2020.

Good luck in 2019 and I hope yopu have a successful and enjoyble games experience.

PS Maybe I should start a gamers roadie subsection to the forum to help link up gamers to events with mutual offers of accommodation and the like? Or ideas about exchanges that could help us all get out and meet up more?
eg sharing driving? offering spare bedroom up for night? sharing journey for company sake for those who may not belong to clubs or choose solo gaming role, but may get out more if sharing the effort?

Other ideas welcomed?

Another good day. The Spanish civil War game was replaced by a Mexican Revolution game using The Men Who Would be Kings. 21 participants overall.

This will almost certainly run again next year - it is normally the last Sunday in September
