On Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of June 2017 Group North will be throwing open its’ doors to allow a series of small wargame events to be played. Each event is free to enter though space may be limited for events so confirm with the hosts early that you are coming.
The Society is going to be trialling opening the club venue on a Saturday for the next month (starting from Sat 18th). The club will be open from 10am to 2pm. If there are people still playing by 2pm the opening will be extended to as late as 6pm. Standard door fees apply for members and cover the whole day (for those that leave for lunch or something and return). Guests will be required to sign the visitors book as normal as part of their four free visits.
The regular Wednesday session continues and Friday session is still available for those seeking to game.
Well, the night before actually. But we hope that everyone got a few rounds of whatever your favourite game is in between some mouthfuls of sausage today.
First up we had a play of Republic to Empire on a lovely Cigar Box Battles Mat.
Some Guildball was being played. Still a popular game at the club.
There were some more Vanguard games getting played for Kings of War. This will be wrapping up soon and players will be moving onto their bigger armies in preparation for Crows Feast.
Fields of Glory is another game you’ll see every week.
The giant Battletech miniatures continue to get a weekly game at the club.
Flames of War continues to be a regular, this was a first run for an army.
Finally some of the Tantive IV missions from X-Wing were played. There was a tense moment at the end of the first mission as the Imperial player, desperate to cripple the front of the ship lined up three of his ships hoping that would damage it as it moved through. Lucky for the rebel crew their shields took the hits for a win.
Crows Feast is coming back for another year. Recently returned in 2016 as a Kings of War competition this event continues to bring together all South Australian players who enjoy the game for the biggest local event.
The competition will run on April 8th. Entry is $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Entry will include player handouts and provision of food.
2000 point armies are used. There will be four rounds played to determine the ultimate winner. Full details of the event are in the players pack.
Happy New Year fellow wargamers. The club is looking forward to providing another year of great game playing. Our regular gaming nights are available on Wednesday and Friday and we will be adding some Saturday afternoon sessions through the year.
We’ll also continue activities for our club such as Open Day on October 29th and some of our regular competitions such as Crows Feast, LightSpeed, Warrior Kings and anything else that is organised during the year.
We look forward to all our existing members returning and encourage anyone who wants to look for a new place and group to play games with to take advantage of their four free visits to the club and come along to any regular opening session.
