Games for 29th December 2010

The winter weather led to concerns about how many people would make the meeting and how long those that got there would stay, so table games replaced the scheduled running order. That said 9 members fought their way to the bar.

As it was Christmas Bookmarc, as Treasurer, found he had friends for once. All enjoyed a curry or burger + drink on the club and the landlord was smiling !

After much muttering between James and Bradley, James offered to show Bookmarc, Andy G, Tony and Knuckles some puppies he had upstairs. Once up there he opened his coat to show them what he had got. At this point Tony ran screaming to the bar, but the others were so traumatised they went along with his game and played, spit, Magic.

Luckily Sideshow, Andy B and myself had evaded James' trap and we played the much more sensible "Groo".

Next Weeks Games:

Given the weather a night of table games was agreed. Andy B is bringing "Incursion" (Zombie Nazis in Gibraltar. Why Gibraltar ?), and no doubt James will again attempt to corrupt the innocent. So if you don't fancy those, bring something else. Now don't tell me you haven't got a few table games Mick !


Next week agreed a Free Week.

Club to give staff card + £20 for Christmas (not done as no one had a card. Mick has the card ?).

Last Weeks Quote:

Well, Predator of course. Only Tom has an excuse for not having seen this film when it was released, although frankly if Tony didn't include it as part of his upbringing then shame on him !

This Weeks Quote:

"Think of death and you are no longer sure of your life. It's a Hebrew proverb."

Weekly Round Up and Games for 22-12-10

As both Secretaries were away this week I've had to step in but I refuse to wear the skirt in the condition James has left it in...

This week had two games and some deviants in a dark corner playing with cards...

The Ottoman Turks pushed their way into Europe via Vienna with much loud discussion on both sides while in the 40k game the Imperial Guard faced off against... the Imperial Guard with no loud discussion (non-histerical gamers are so much more civilised...).

Next week we have:

FOW- Andy B, Vince, Rob, Bookmarc, Tony and Tom.

FIW- Brett and Trainset.

Frag- Mick, Robin, James, Bradley and possibly Jamie.

Next week will be a free week and the club will be paying for some drinks and snacks for the attendees.

The club also agreed to give the bar staff £20 in an xmas card as a thank you.

Last weeks quote was from the classic 'National Lampoons Animal House' for the uninitiated.

This weeks quote:

'I ain't got time to bleed...'

Normal service should be resumed next week (although I would get a new skirt Vince!), Mick

Games for 08/12/10

Right then. Back in the secretarial skirt... wash it when you're done, eh boys?

That aside we had three games this week - a certain hippy returned to show off some more nicely painted 20mm Nappies, Rob introduced Knuckles and Jamie to the policies of the ECW, and I introduced Bradley to Santa. Repeatedly.

Next week we have more HotT action, plus Magic and something else, for JDE, Bookmark, Bradley and Jamie. Brett, Trainset, Mike and Rob are playing 17th century Ottomans, Mick and Robin are playing 40K, and the rest of you can sort yourselves out - maybe a nice league game?

Knuckles quote of the week, when asked what game his vampires were for "The one where the figures are on the bases"

Film quote of the week - "Was it over when the Germans bombed pearl harbour?"

Games for 8th December 2010

Last night saw a good turn out with 3 games running.

In D & D the party fought a lobster. What sort of lives do you have to lead, to consider fighting a lobster adventurous ?

In the Ancients game, the Romans and Carthagians still had everything to play for and Mick wasn't sure about the rules (in any sense of the word !).

What can I say about Bradley's Epic game ? When I left at 10-30 p.m they were still on turn 2.

I understand Bradley may have an Epic rule book for sale. Well used, except for the section on victory conditions, which is as new. No sensible offer accepted.

Knuckles of the Week Quote:

Goes to me. When faced with the prospect of an open flank if I could just break the Celts I said:

Vince -"If I cut this lot down I can pursue into the unit next to them."

Rob -"Those are your Velites."

Bloody six mil.

Next week we have:

Napoleonics - Phil (long haired hippy type) will be marshalling Brett, Trainset, Mike and Bookmarc as part of the "Historical Gamers Fight Back" campaign. Good luck is all I can say.

40K - Mick and Robin as part of the "Hysterical Gamers Fight Forwards" campaign.

ECW - Rob, Jamie and Knuckles will be trying to maintain impetus. I don't doubt Knuckles has a book on armies.

Hordes - Bradley and James, as they know not what they do.


The club "Squig Race" was well received at the Bristol show. Bradley and Mick gave all the traders and demo games Legionary 2011 leaflets. James reports that 2 booking have been received subsequentley.

A motion to provide Onion rings for members each week, at the clubs expense, was voted down. It was worth the time just to see the Treasurer's face !

Last Week's Quote:

It was indeed "The Lives of a Bengal Lancer". I suspect the Hitler reference may have been too much of a hint.

Ritual kicking for the member who suggested "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" !

This Week's Quote:

"Where's Goring ?"

"He's on his way."

"Well, when you are fat you don't move so fast."
