I spent a very pleasant day at the show, managing to chat to lots of people and even enjoy a game of Sharp Practice 2, run in his own unique style by Rich Clarke.
The first thing of note was that the show was much bigger than last year, with more traders (28) and more games (26) – the tournaments were even moved to a different room.
Despite the increased number of tables, the show still had enough room to move around comfortably. Coupled with the fact that the venue was very well lit, this meant that the overall feel of the show was busy, without feeling cramped.
Most (if not all) of the games were participation, and were generally of a very good standard. I managed to grab a few pictures during the day:
The Battle of Tribola – James Morris, Simon Miller and the Lenton Gamers
Canel Commandos – Very British Civil Forum
7TV – Crooked Dice
Battle of Culloden – Bedford Gladiators
The 30K Channel
Colonial Sudan – Peterborough Wargames Club
To Sleep Is To Die – Harrogate Wargamers
Martian Practice – Forest of Dean Gamers
The Battle of Benfleet – Southend Wargames Club
Viva Ras Begus! – Too Fat Lardies
Congratulations for Matt Slade and Ralph Plougman of the Forest of Dean Gamers for winning the Steve Frisby Memorial Trophy for their Martian Practice game.
Another excellent show organised by the Peterborough guys – hopefully it will go from strength to strength in future years.
