Hi, I'm new to the forums so I apologise if this is in the wrong place.

I was wondering if anyone would be up for playing Bolt Action with a total newby on Monday 8th?

I'm busy this week, but I'd be up for a game next Monday. I may have to remind myself how to play, it's been a while.

Sounds good to me. I've read the rules but haven't played any games yet. I have made the German side of the Band of Brothers box, and can easily have the Americans done by the 15th if need be. Im happy to play which ever will be the most fun for others :)

If you don't have a game for the 8th you can always join the RFC and shoot down some Huns.

There is plenty of space in Wings of Glory/War

I haven't joined any games yet. Mostly because I don't know the rules to any of them!

I wouldn't want to slow down the games. But I'll happily spectate and try to learn.

Wings of war is a very simple game to play, and great fun. So you are welcome to join us.

As long as you don't mind Carl (and have enough spare pieces) I'd love to. So long as no one fancies Bolt Action. :)

"And have enough spare pieces" he says. Oh dear. :laugh:

To translate -
Carl has a small airforce of spare pieces.
I don't honestly think anyone in the club would ever object to you learning a game as you went, we all do, still.
Wings of war is a really easy game to pick up (impossible to master). I once did an event and taught 4 air cadets the game and they were running it for me within the hour.

Ah perfect. I'm glad you guys are so cool about newbies. I just don't want to be a burden or ruin the fun for other players. I'll watch some youtube videos so I'm not at a complete loss :)

Is there a spare place in any game I could squeeze into?

I've had a look at the Band of Brothers set, and there's not a lot in there for an evening's gaming. If you'd prefer, I can bring two armies in for us to have a full game.

Yeah only 2 squads and a Hanomag. If you don't mind bringing an army and teaching a noob I'll happily accept 😊 Are you thinking of doing that for the 15th?

That's what I had in mind, yes.
