Thread: Pre Doncaster sortie Chez Hedeby

  1. #1

    Default Pre Doncaster sortie Chez Hedeby

    Andy( Nightbomber) and I had the good fortune to be invited to Chris (Hedeby) little oasis of gaming in Doncaster.
    It has all a gamer could dream of . Plenty of space, its warm, as was the greetings from other gamers and it has a kitchen where the members cook such delights as Beef Curry, rice and popadoms for a very reasonsable fee.

    Anyway We stared out on a simple \scout action Myself , Andy, Chris and a couple of his friends, one being a first time WoW player. It was a brief encounter, my Spad getting a double boom on its first attack from the newcomer
    Chris was keen to play test his game for the following day so we agrred to cut short the first outing and concentrate on his creation.
    It was and has the potential to be a classic OTT scenario and pre plying certainly ironed out a fewbugs in the system.
    My thanks to Chris, not only for inviting us down there but to chaufering us about the maze that is Doncaster. only sorry we didnt take some photos of the game, or maybe Andy did, along with the shot of him next to an Imperial Stormtrooper.

    It was a very nice Club indeed and Chris' scenario is absolutely innovative.

    It was a pretty cool place Barnaby. Lots of 40K stuff see photos but room and tables upstairs for 30+ Magic and other card games to take place. And a budding WoW section. That and you can take beer in is to my mind a dream come true.

    Magic - exactly what is Magic because everybody down at my FLGS is crazy about this game ... meanwhile I haven't got a clue what goes on with it??!

    Very glad to hear the magic (pardon the pun!) words 'budding Wings of War section' - beer I'm ok with although I don't drink myself for health reasons

    Four O'clock in the morning was not too good either, and there was only one of them.
    Still at that time of the morning I guess I looked pretty rough too.

    Got you into that too
    Bang's a fun game, esp. for cons when you have a couple hours to kill between WoG games, or late night wind downs.
    Comes in a few alternative versions too; samurai, zombies, that I know of.

    Can't say that I do; I avoid zombie games like the plague!
