We have our usual selection of participation and demo games this year – a mix of historical and speculative, some of which you may have seen at shows around the region.
Among the games we have a couple of re-creations of local battles, one from the ECW (the battle of Stilton) and one from the Dark Ages (Holme), as well as an interesting revisionist take on Hastings from the Southend guys. For those who missed it at Partizan, Lenton Gamers’ fabulous Oppy Wood 1917 game will be making a reappearance on the show circuit, and John Austin’s merry crew will be back with a smorgasbord of small skirmish games you can dip into, as will local board games club Posh Games and the Rift.
Plenty of stuff to enjoy – hopefully you’ll find something new you want to try and, hopefully, buy.
Unfortunately we have had two more traders withdraw from this year’s show. We are sorry that both Oathsworn Miniatures and Original Laser Designs will not be attending.
We do though have one new trader to announce. Thanks to Christoper Morris books for stepping in and filling one of the gaps! Christopher hopes to build a reputation as the provider of books by the enthusiast for the enthusiast. This will be built upon the efforts of a dedicated team of information professionals who will cater to the needs of a discriminating audience – people who know exactly what they like but who are perhaps not always sure how to get it.
With the recent withdrawals of some traders we have a small amount of space free. If you are a trader, or know a trader who might be interested please contact us ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
We regret to announce that this year’s SAGA Melée will not now take place.
We’ll be in touch with entrants to ensure their refunds are processed according to their preference.
Unfortunately Realplace Terrain have also had to withdraw from this year’s show. We are in discussion with other traders and hope to be able to name replacements for both The Pit Gaming Shop and Realpace Terrain next week.
Somehow when we released the full list of traders last week we managed to leave K Kraft Miniatures off!
