Phewww that was Battleground

Back from the show, tired but happy all seemed to go well, I think 9 or 10 games during the day and hardly a break. Everyone very complimentary about the game and hopefully all enjoyed it. All left smiling anyway. HAving done it at a couple of shows now I know it works, is quick to set up and I can accommodate experienced gamers through to fairly novice children.
The table set up first thing, plenty of space but 
sports hall lighting!
 One close up of the table, I didn't get to look at anything else much during the day 

My loot for the day, with not much spare time Steve who was helping was looking out for bargains. A couple of Universal Carriers at 30% discount, some light german artillery which I was picking up, it
cost me £3 using the Warlord discount email from a couple of weeks ago ! A smudge of terrain for next weekend, some Grenadiers ( I actually only want the arms)  and some Ironclad armed WI, these are great but will take a while to get to the painting table.

A good day and very likely to be back next year with another game thank you to everyone that played and came and had a chat......a special prize should go to Martin who played twice and managed to get Aragorn killed both times ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Nice to meet you today, Matt. I've got to say seeing your terrain and boards 'live' is a better experience than seeing them via photos. Very nice work!

    I enjoyed the game, though tiredness was kicking in by the time I played, so I'll admit to failing to grasp the scenario to start with. If I get to play again I'll be bettered prepared, however, and probably won't be so carefree about Frodo Baggins's life. Definitely a good game you've got there, and it works really well - and yourself running it - in a show environment. Definitely a game I'd recommend.

  5. It sounds like you had a great day, and you certainly got a nice bargain on those Carriers.
