    Default Entoyment - Game Day 17th August 2019

    Just a heads up for chaps in the area that together with Tim (Flying Helmut) I have arranged to put on a WoG game day at Entoyment, Poole so if you are about on Saturday 17th August 2019 with time to spare then please come and join us for a game or two of WoG WW1. We should be up and running by ten if not before and we'll finish when we've had enough or properly need feeding !

    This event was requested by Peter Valinski who owns & runs Entoyment - it coincides with their 'Demo Day' when they open the tables to demo all sorts of games and it marks the third anniversary of the loss of our Dorset Flight Leader & wingman Mick Owen a regular at Entoyment.
    Please come and support us if you can and prick a sausage or two !

    Hopefully Pete will have got a resupply of WoG kit by then too.

    Kickstarter rewards should definitely have arrived by then, and I’m free, so would they like a second table of ‘Pods action?

    Regardless, I will make it down to be an extra pair of hands.

    It'll be good to have you there Neil - not sure if he has spare demo table but I will ask him, though he's not carrying Tripods last we spoke, he can supply the planes !

    Happy to bring everything just in case. You never know, maybe seeing them in the flesh might persuade him to stock them

    - Neil.

    Aah, I'm afraid I'm already down for a family weekend then. Have fun and hopefully next time I'll be there.

    Week to go chaps - hope you can all make it still, I'm told there's quite a bit of interest.

    Well if Tim's coming probably not Rob but bring a favourite if you like.

    Yep, still planning to be there. Aiming to arrive sometime between 9 and 10, traffic permitting.

    - Neil.

    It looks like there will be four of us chaps to run this thing - me, Tim, Rob & Neil, it won't affect most of you but we can get in from half eight if we want through the door beside the main entrance - shop opens to public at ten.
    We may or may not need more balloons so if you have one bring it along for the ride in case we do, and bring along something with rockets if you think you're hard enough !

  13. #13


    No balloons I'm afraid, but I do seem to have some rocket equipped planes however...

    See you tomorrow.

    - Neil.

  14. #14


    Will bring a balloon

  15. #15


    Nice one lads - see you in't morning !

    Have a good one chaps.

    Have a good day and some exciting games!

  19. #19


    All that fun and sponsored by a stockist that carries lots of new toys.... the latter sorely missing up in t’north

    Never Knowingly Undergunned !!

    Entoyment had some series 1 reprints - note use of past tense there .... They will be ordering more !
    They also have mats as well as some WW2 stock & the WGF RAP for those who claim no one has them...

    Thanks to all who came to support - sadly not as many punters as we would have hoped but that just meant more planes for us ! I will post some pics at some point.

    Was a fun day indeed!

    As usual, photos can be found on Flickr.

    Highlight of the day, though possibly only for everyone else at the table, was seeing Dave manage to have a collision between the two planes he was controlling! Given the size of the table, this was quite an achievement! He did manage to survive however and even got a shot off.

    - Neil.

    Thanks for running the games yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon of dogfighting. Look forward to the next one.

    Glad to see everything come off smoothly! Has Entoyment offered you that part-time job yet, Dave?!

    Looking forward to more pictures and more flying there in the future - wish you all weren't so far away!

    All the best,

    Greatly enjoyed the day Dave, thank you, Roll on the next meet up

    I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings
    Coming down is the hardest thing

    Took a few pics of the day.
    Set up - me, Rob and Tim all arrived with minutes of each other and to our surprise got an 18' table to settle down on - here we are clustered at the far end !

    The second couple of games were Recon intercepts
    I nicked a kill from under Tim's nose & bagged the second to secure victory from the Hun

    I survived the fire and had one point of damage left so promptly ran away !

    The second game involved the German recon being intercepted...

    In spite of colliding with my own machines I still managed to finish Neil off ...again

    My second Camel was taken out by Andy as I was trying to intercept an escaping Hannover - both got away having given the SE's a drubbing. All good fun, some laughs, some shopping - think we all bought more than one model !
    Thanks again everyone

    Thanks again chaps for the very enjoyable day of flying.

  28. #28


    That looks like a lot of fun was had by all Sad to have missed it, but I suspect there will be plenty of other opportunities. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks to all or flyers - a fun day indeed!

    As pictured above, I managed to die (literally!) from only two long-range shots; both were pilot wounds.

    It was all going swimmingly until I overlapped him, and Dave popped off the remaining 1 damage point to steal my kill!

    I hope to post pictures of my own (and 4 other game events recently attended!) if I get the time.
