Make your plans now to attend the Warfare convention in Reading UK on the weekend of 17-18 November. I and a few other members of the "Bloody Big BATTLES!" gang will be there both days, flying the flag for BBB and for Oxford Wargames Society.

https://www.wargamesreading.co.uk/warfare/

Outline plan is to have one big game on Sunday when it tends to be a bit quieter, probably Antietam; but on Saturday when the crowds are bigger and people are in more of a rush, we'll run two small games repeatedly. The candidate small games are probably Langensalza (1866) and Inverkeithing (1651) using an ECW variant of BBB. (No, I hadn't heard of the battle of Inverkeithing either.)

All the games will be participation games in our usual format where folk can play a whole game if they want, or just drop in and out to push a few troops around for 30 minutes if that's all the time they have. If you're going to Warfare and you'd like to join in one of the games, do let us know, or if you won't have time to play, at least say hello it's always a pleasure to meet y'all at shows.

But you do have to be careful on German roads. By some bizarre coincidence I was actually in Hannover last week and literally on my journey there I read about this:

Langensalza is a great scenario to try out the rules, very well balanced: http://wwiiwargaming.blogspot.com/2015/12/langensalza-bloody-big-battles-intro.html

Apparently even Fijian jockophobes like it.  Wink

So if I can only make one day, is Saturday or Sunday best?  I will be in London but I am not sure what else I might be up to.

And should I trust the websites that say it's only an hour from Paddington by train?

Hi

Re. Paddington to Reading by train, it is actually only about 30 minutes baring any railworks, delays etc. The venue is about 20 minutes brisk walk from the station.

Cheers Paul
