Thanks for this update and reminder, Martin.

I'd love to come, but it's Mrs K's birthday that weekend, so it would be something of a game too far... Particularly with Square Bashing on the following Saturday.

Incidentally, there is some (limited) information about the D-Day event on Entoyment's website.

The planned Villers Bocage game will be played, but not the DDay weekend. We will put that on one Saturday in the near future. Will need 5-6 players for it. Me and Big Mike will work on the rules. As the vehicles on the road between the town and the hill are all havin a brew... Might be able to put it on twice in a day. Swop people about. British in the morning, Germans in the afternoon.
Like I ve said before its 3 PBI games one one long table, 12 x 4 game. Objective is to survive. British to keep the road and town, so various points along the road, would have to stay in British hands. If not the Germans wins.
We can nearly do a one to one vehicle and troop ratio.

Sounds very interesting Miles.
Are the 3 sections of the table independent, or do all have to wait for the single  player still struggling to do some task?

Should be good Miles.

Not too sure on that. I suppose technically they could be. But at he same time they are meant to represent one "long" road. Left to right the first one will be part of Villers Bocage town itself. Then the second one will feature the now famous road that Wittman done the damage on, with British units have a brew waiting for the "bigwigs" to decide what they are doing next. Then the third table will be on a slightly risen stage. Where the platoon/company and Regimental command units are meeting  to see where to go next. As the view was excellent from there !
You should be able to travel from left to right and back, and that includes any firing from the edge of each table to the next.
The British would be "Defenders" and the Germans would be the "Attackers"
The scenary  should be relatively simple. Be made of most templates that most of us have in our Wargaming boxes. The only specialist piece would be 2 inch thick polystyrene that would cover most of a 4 ft table, just to make it look higher than the rest of the scene. The two "road" tables will have farm tracks and woods and hedges across, etc to represent Bocage and Farmland associated with that part of Normandy .
That's about it.

Sounds good Miles. Do let the group know when you have it all organised.
Can you get some pictures too?
Any recommendations for a simple and concise (short)text about the action?
