A MIGHTY WIND – The Plenary Game
1944. The Home Islands are threatened by a huge enemy battle fleet and invasion force. It is our sacred duty to die for the Emperor …
WD Display Team North
Take to the skies over Kent to prevent those new unsporting V-1 flying bombs reaching London. Who will be the top scorer in No. 607 ‘Knuston’ Wing?
GLADIOLUS (the old SOA Gladiator game)
CABINET OFFICE BRIEFING ROOM A
A committee game for up to 12. Crisis management of an unprecedented and dangerous crisis … and explaining it on the Today Programme.
SAVING PRIVATE MOUAT
A 100% Totally Not Footfall mission to rescue one of HMGs most vital assets.
WARRIORS FOR THE WORKING DAY
Just another wargame involving toy tanks in WW2 … but very suitable for those who can’t tell their HVSS from their APDS.
LITTLE WARS: THE WAR OF FIREFLY’S NOSE
If there’s any enthusiasm for lounging around on the grass and projecting matchsticks at each other randomly … this is the session for you!
HEMLOCK AND DEMOCRACY
404BC: Sparta has defeated Athens. The birthplace of democracy groans beneath the Thirty Tyrants. But a small group of rebels seek to change all that … A political/military role-play featuring Spartan warlords, philosophers, priests, democrats and oligarchs.
OVID FOR WARGAMERS
John Bassett on his favourite Roman poet: man about town, wit, master of seduction, intriguer at the imperial court and exile. Will feature a re-enactment of the sad, sad story of Orpheus, with audience participation.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
A simple set of wargames rules for company level actions in the early Twenty First Century using 15mm figures and die cast aeroplanes. An entertainment for up to four players.
Wayne Thomas & David Brock
NIMY BRIDGE IN 15MM
A refight of the attack against the Mons salient by the German 18th Division of the IX Corps. The latest adaptation of “Far Away Wars” for 1914.
THE SIEGE OF FORT WILLIAM HENRY … OR, BRING ME THE HEART OF COLONEL MUNRO
The notorious battle of the French and Indian Wars, and centrepiece of THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS re-created using the latest edition of the “Redcoats & Rebels” rules and a very large number of model trees. With the caveat that the session may take more liberties with history than James Fenimore Cooper, this is for 6-8 players.
MUSKETS & TOMAHAWKS ADG
French & Indian Wars using 25mm figures and the French skirmish rules “Muskets & Tomahawks”. The exact scenario depends on the presence of celebrated frontiersman Pete Grizzell.
