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.

I can be there on the 12th, and *maybe* the 11th (I am gigging the night before and likely to be wiped and have a car needing unloading before I can go anywhere...)

What time does Campaign MK start & finish? (Center MK's opening times are- Sat 9am - 7pm, Sun 11am - 5pm)

Looks like we're short on people on the Saturday so I'll do that afternoon.

Who has the rules and can whoever has them post a copy as I could do with a reread before the day.

Grahame: If you're there for the morning I can be there to help set up, then I'll take Joshua round in the morning and run the game in the afternoon. Ok?

They're the core rules from Don Featherstone's "Skirmish Wargaming" with some minor mods for activation. Somewhere I have a 1 page QRS which I will dig out.
