Monday Night Games / MONDAY 21ST DECEMBER 2020
Last post by Mike Whitaker - December 15, 2020, 04:54:27 pm
As this is the last meeting before Xmas, and we would normally be having our Christmas meal that week (or perhaps today, in fact), Grahame has (been) volunteered to run a quiz (and agreed, for which thank you very much Grahame!)

See folks there to see if anyone can dethrone the previous champion! Bring a drink and a mince pie!

http://www.peterborough-wargames-club.org.uk/forums/index.php?topic=1998.0 for the Zoom call - usual 8pm, please bring your thinking heads!

Please note, the Zoom chat *will* be open on the 28th for those who want to discuss their Christmas acquisitions :D

The provisional plan is to take something that we can pull off the shelf and run on minimal prep, so that if the show gets cancelled we're not wasting time and if we we're only allowed to get together a couple of weeks before the show we're good - current plan per Grahame's suggestion is the 54mm HYW game, as it hasn't been to Hammerhead.

Do we have a planned game? What's the status of the Cube?

8pm scheduled natter - all manner of interesting military history and wargaming topics if the last few weeks are anything to go by - I think we ended up discussing Gildas, Nennius and the Venerable Bede last week!

Fingers and toes crossed for this to happen. Presume you could continue with the previous planned game ?
General Gaming / Free rules

I thought a thread on free rules you have found would be a good idea. Little wars tv [youtube channel] have produced a free set of dark ages skirmish rules with its own dedicated website www.ravenfeast.com  - they are well produced and a good looking set with straight forward mechanisms.

And I quote:

QuoteUpdate: December 2020
Hammerhead 2021 has been moved to Saturday 31st July.
The extremely welcome news that there will be a mass immunisation program for CV-19 rolled out over the next weeks and months, has at last created the certain belief that the wargame shows will be able to resume once again.
It has been obvious for a while with the current progress of the pandemic, that the March 6th date for Hammerhead is too early for the show to function in a normal way and follow the necessary guidelines to ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone in attendance. So many people have put so much time and effort in creating the fantastic range of participation games for the Hammerhead shows, that rather than simply cancelling the show, we wanted to move it to a future date when 'normality' has returned. It is our sincere belief that by the end of July next year a mass vaccination program will have delivered the safe environment necessary for Hammerhead 2021 to go ahead, hopefully without the current compulsory social distancing, facemasks etc.
The date of Hammerhead 2021 is Saturday 31st July.
Both venues have been booked and we will be contacting traders and game presenters in due course. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the tremendous help, encouragement and support we have received over the last seven years that Sally has been organising Hammerhead. Now that we have a new date for the show, we will work hard to make this 'Summer Hammerhead' a true celebration of our hobby!

<noddy>It's MOOOOOOOOONNNNNNDAY.... </holder>

Hrm. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it :D

Usual Monday natter - I should be there, but I've been rushed off my feet over the weekend. I have fixed the call so you don't need me around to screen share.
