100 Years of War

Post by Dave Knight » Sat Jun 10, 2017 9:52 pm

Details below of this event. Although not restricted to Lardy rules there are normally a number of such games on - indeed of the first 3 games offered 2 are CoC (the other is a Check Your 6 Jet Age game set in the Indo-Pakistan wars

Jointly sponsored by Falkirk and District Wargames Club and the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers – now in its 5th year

Date: Sunday 24th September 2017

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 are very likely to be experienced wargamers but may have not played the rules before – indeed people use this as an opportunity to have a go at a new rules 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 game you want to take part in

Please contact Dave Knight with details of the game as soon as you can. I will firm up details nearer the time

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.

There will be an opportunity for you 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 placed 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.

This is always a fun event and recommended as a good day out.
I may also be running either an "If the Lord Spares Us" East Africa game or a "Through the Mud and Blood" scenario depending on discussions to be had with my brother-in-arms and fellow conspirator Allan.
