Umm, slightly bizarre question time!

Anyone know I might fare with a double-buggy round this one?  Thought I might bring the twins out for their first exposure to the wonderful world of miniature gaming Wink

Cheers,

The aisles are wide, and in quiet times you should have no troubles, but at busy times it tends to be packed with wandering herds of bloated, corpulant wildebeasts, ripe for the lions to sieze on them sorry, wargamers looking to spend money with traders! Might be best to avoid busy times like lunch and between game 2 & 3 Saturday when the 'gamers' mill about, Sunday also tends to be quieter...

If you get chance Chris, pop by and say hello as it would be good to meet up and have a chat. Craig and I will be there as Double Six gamers.

Thanks for the info lemmey.

In the end my wife decided she couldn't face trying to control a 2.5yo and the twins round Reading just so I could show them off to Leon for 5 minutes  Wink

On the one hand this was a mistake because we discovered the entry was £4 each or £4 for a family ticket (mum, dad and as many U16s as you could herd safely!) when we got there; on the other, the trading floor seemed exceptionally cramped and I'm not sure even our slender 2-seater would have been too welcome!  The Pendraken stand was rather of rather minimal dimensions when compared to the full majesty on display at Salute or Colours.

The gaming floor was absolutely sweltering!  This may have been due to it being the bowling arena so was designed with thermodynamics more suited to a few dozen slow moving geriatrics rather than several gross of over-thinking wargamers...  Wink  Anyway, some good stuff on display, but a lot of it was repeated from previous shows. 

All in all a really nice day.  Got in a quick chat with Leon just after we arrived; there was a really nice, friendly, relaxed atmosphere; everything being on one floor in close proximity helped when dealing with the effects of a Fruit Shoot on my 6yo's bladder without having to traipse half a mile to find loos...  Roll eyes

So, next year, I think I'll take the clan!!  Thumbs up

Good to see you!  The stand was a bit more cramped than last year, not really sure why, but we'll be moving up to an 18ft for next year hopefully.  The gaming room was OK, but as you say, very warm, and it was tricky getting into some of the games for photo's without feeling like I was getting in people's way.
