We’re up and running for 2019

Advance tickets (£3, so you’ll save £2 on the door price) are now on sale.

As usual we’ll have a great range of participation and demonstration games and traders. If you were a trader or put on a game at the show in the last couple of years, expect to hear from us in the next week.

If not, and you’re interested in running a participation or hands-on demo game, the application form is here. For trade stand applications, please drop us an email.

Games!

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.

If you’re interested in booking a trade stand or putting on a game at the show this year, the booking information is on the site. Check the menu entries at the top of every page for a link.

As last year, we’re very keen on participation games that get the public involved over anything else, be it for long or short periods of time.
