The weekend is almost upon us, and this one looks like being rather entertaining (for me, at least).
Saturday is the latest Mantic Open Day. Loads of stuff going on there, including:
- Azure Forest Tournament (DreadBall)
- Deadzone Campaign Day
- Learn to Play! Mars Attacks
- Learn to Play! Deadzone
- Learn to Play! DreadBall
- Massive KoW participation game
- Project Pandora special demo
- Warlord Games will be in attendance with Bolt Action and Judge Dredd demos
- Alessio will be running a Loka tournament.
- In the morning (between 11am and 2pm), Kai and Sarah will be running a mini event for 7-13 year olds – build some models, non-playing parents can grab a cup of tea and a seat and learn to paint, giving our gaming parents a chance to enjoy some of the morning’s fun. (Children enter free with their parents!).
I stole that from their blog. More details there.
Much of the time I’ll be in seminars with Ronnie, answering awkward questions as usual 😉
The rest of the time I’ll be wandering about the demos, talking to folk and seeing what everyone’s up to with these games in the real world.
If you have the chance, why not pop along and say hi? There are still a few tickets left.
The Triples wargames show is also on this weekend, up in Sheffield. Obviously I can’t get there on saturday, but I’ve decided to actually have a day off on sunday (Shock! Horror!) to go up and have a wander about with some friends. If I don’t bump into someone that knows me there too, I’ll be very surprised. Gaming is a very small world 🙂
