Strategy - a new UK 24-hour gaming event - is coming this August14 Jul 2016 0
This week we've been talking a lot about table-top wargaming and the future. Richard Bodley-Scott, creator of Pike & Shot, is worried it's dying out. Our man Bill Gray has other ideas, but it essentially boils down to a question of culture and event atmosphere.
Here in the UK, we have our fair share of events – mostly competitions, but a few trade shows as well. There's Salute as a the 'headline' show, and then there are smaller regional gatherings like Broadside in Kent, and WARFARE in Reading. Not bad all things considered, but it could be better.
The master-minds behind the MCM London Comic Con have come together and announced 'Strategy', a new event dedicated to board games, card games, miniatures games and role-playing games, all with a more strategy orientated focus. There will be a large dedicated tournament and playing space, and to top it off, the venue will be open 24-hours-a-day from Thursday until Sunday, one of the very few events to offer round-the-clock access.
Tickets are already on sale, and there is an early-bird discount running until July 27th. You can find out more information on their store page, but at the moment a 4-day pass will set you back around £30 (we're not sure if this is pre or post discount).
Strategy is being held at the Telford International Centre, 25th to the 28th August. We hope to see you there!
