75th Anniversery gaming weekends at Entoyment 2019.
« on: March 24, 2019, 08:04:53 AM »
As people may or may not know. It is 75th Anniversery of 1944. So Entoyment are doing at least 2 weekends this year to play games dicated in memoery of those that fought in that period.
DDay weekend has been confirmed for 7/8/9th of June.
Hopefully one for Arnhem will be the weekend 20th September.
Origanally i was hoping to put on a massive game, similular to the Arndennes game in 2018, but unfortunatley for now proved to be too much of a time consuming bemoth. I will put it on in 5 years time. So the research for the whole game is not wasted. Instead we can put on smaller games.
But the important one DDay.
Myself Colin and Big Mike are putting on Gold Beach for that weekend, those that were at Beachhead this year saw half the game, so far.
I have also suggested Villers Bocage which would on the Sunday of that weekend.
Anyone else want to put on a Small (any scale/system) game that weekend can contact Simon Edwards on Facebook messenger.
If not anyone interested in playing any of the games that weekend ?
I am looking for help on both the Saturday and Sunday that weekend. To help run the Gold Beach game of Saturday ? 6/8 people ???
Help running the Villers Bocage on Sunday and British Tanks and carriers and British/US trucks and 6pdrs please ???

Miles,

Thank you for the update. I'm afraid I can't make the weekend of 8th / 9th June (family birthday events), but I do hope that works well.

Meanwhile, I'll keep on painting my German force that will hopefully see the light of day around 20th September.

Hi Miles

Cannot make the June weekend as having a rather large operation two weeks before, so will not be up to pushing toy soldiers around for a few months. Arnhem bridge is taking shape quite nicely, so are the buildings, roads etc, will post some pictures soon, when it starts to come together - clock is ticking as I have to have it all painted by the end of May. If Arnhem not on, then Martin guess we will be playing a lot of bridge actions.

Arnhem will be on. It is what people want to do over that weekend is the thing?
So its a case of what games to put on and who is doing what etc ?
So Wardy is putting on an Arhem Bridge game. I have some "town houses" that would be suitable towards that game, on top of other things you need for that.
I want to put on "Band of Brothers" Attack on Nuenen, i have the British Tanks and Soldiers, I have most of the German tanks, and Scenery. I will need US Paras (Easy Company FoW and Peter Pig ones) and German Pz Grenidiers.
I want to put on Battle for Son newly constructed Bailey Bridge, again I have the British and German Armour, and British Troops and Scenery. I will need US Paras and German troops.
Stewart was talking about the River Waal crossing and taking of the main Bridge of Nijmegen. Northern end of the Bridge mainly i think.
Of course we need some bodies to help play the games over that weekend too. Most of these games over both weekends need 4/6/8 ? people to run them.

More than likely my son Ben will host the Arnhem bridge game with my support, as following two bouts of surgery I might not fancy playing. He is really up for it.

I think we could use your bridge in AWI, BB, western and possibly in pirate land raids.  it wold be called the  "the mystery bridge to nowhere" scenario. How abut it being a transit gate to another game table. Each vehicle or foot base that drives into it can appear on someone else's game table. A random roll.  Then after ruining their game , back into the bridge and off we go,

Since Martin will undoubtedly be charging on the bridge should it be known as "Toll-Bridge"?

So 5 per vehicle or a 50 day pass, my bridge could do quite well!

That rather assumes that any vehicles get as far as the bridge to actually cross it. Historical precedent does not augur well...
