p1fx is organising a wargames/RPG/card games convention in Greenock around April.

Are there people willing to run a demo game there in order to promote the club ?

And if so what would we do best unsure

(i dont normally play evil empire games, but will make an exception in this case. tongue )

We are also looking for open participation games aswell as demo ones, a game where members of the public can play either against the host or another visitor with the host acting as ref. Things like bloodbowl would be good for this, perhaps RoE or 40k too.

We will also have on some un related games such as Subbuteo table football due to demand.

That would look pretty cool if the footballers where replaced with Bloodbowl teams! B)

Hey Z, what about your "Gang Wars" ... something different and plenty of time to pretty the game up? I'd be happy to create some game cards for the teams on the go and anyone wanting to play in the event, and make the rules available in a PDF to anyone who might want an online copy?

People could easily join in at the event as well? ... Walts

Its an option, but we should look at other options to, a historical wargame might be better ?

Whatever you decide will be fine I am sure, I am just happy to have another club on board.

I would however suggest that you pick something that you are all really comfortable with and know the rules back to front. Just so it will be easier for yourselves to run

By the way each club involved has a representative on the organisational council, would you like to decide on one from your club?

What about Imperium battles? Its fun, fast and really easy to understand so even younger gamers could join in.

What is that? Is it something you could make look real nice and shiney?

By the way the council have voted on a name and the winner was, ClydeCon. So that is what we are christening the event. So far we have yourselves, Lanarkshire Gamers and Inverclyde Roleplayers signed up for sure, hopefully Greenock and Gourock wargames clubs too, and we are going to contact Ayr and Prestwick too.

What is that?

Imperium battles is in all respects the first version of warhammer 40000, its a tabletop game based off of the old space crusade board game using modified and fan created rules to let you play wit a large number of figures rather than the one squad you get each in traditional space crusade.

Depending on who we can get to join in we could make it more shiney than Frodo's Mithril vest biggrin
