Club Dates 2012

Below is a list of the planned games for meetings in 2012. If it does not show otherwise, all games are open to join for all those turning up and figures, terrain and rules are provided by those running the game. Please contact the person indicated to make sure that they have spare slots if you're really keen on joining a particular event.

You might find it useful to bring a tape measure, preferably marked in cms and inches, dice and pen / pencil / paper. Although game hosts should provide everything for the game there are never enough tape measures to go round (and every wargamer knows that you can never have enough dice !).

Club meetings are free to paid up members and to new attendees for their first two visits.

If nothing is shown club regulars always bring a game you can participate in.

We've also produced a table showing the variety of games that we've put on over the past few years (taken from previous diaries). As you can see, no single period dominates and we all tend to have a go at everything.

Thanks to Andy, we now have an audit of the tables available at the hall; there are 13 60"x30" canteen style tables, 18 22"x22" card tables plus the club's three gaming boards at 72"x48". The last each need to be balanced on either two tables or four card tables. So there's easily scope for half-a-dozen games to go on at once.

We've left games that have already happened in place, so that non-members can see the variety of games that we run. Previous diaries are also left in place as an archive :
