GamesFest in Tring - October 2016

Our Fishguard 1797 Demo Game at GamesFest, Tring
GamesFest is a small convention held in our home town of Tring. It's mainly aimed at Fantasy gamers and Role Play Gamers with plenty of tournament games being played. There were traders and Demonstration and Participation Games on show.

Henry and Ian represented Tring Wargames Club taking their Fishguard 1797 The Last Invasion Of Britain Demo Game. Rules used are Donnybrook and they have demo'd this game at several shows this year. Although this scenario is based on an actual historical event it was well received by visitors whose main interests were presumably Fantasy. I called in for a while to give support to the event and the guys on our demo game. I didn't win anything on the raffle.

The organiser has posted on Facebook to say it was a successful event and it is already booked for next year on Saturday 21st October 2017. Hopefully we'll be able to muscle in again with another historical Demo Game to represent the club and Historical gaming.
