usual venue - Middleton Hall, CentreMK. Usually great fun and they love us.

Suggestions for what game to take?

I'll be there for at least one day maybe both.

First thoughts are:

1) The "French Invasion of England by Balloon". I know we've done it there before but it went down very well and is very noticeable.

2) The "100 years War - Siege game" we put on at The Leeds Armoury. It's easy to pick up even for a non-gamer, it looks good (it's in 54mm) and is a good demonstration that wargaming does not need to cost a fortune - IIRC both armies, the terrain and everything else cost less than £40?

3) "Battles of Lake Tanganyika". It's 3 games in one with some great stories, it looks good and the rules are simple enough for non-gamers to pick up easily.
