I have been involved in three events in the last few days
The Antonine's Folly Impetus tournament on 28th April
The Carronade show on 11th May
The wargaming element of the wartime experience at the National Museum of Flight today the 12th May.
I will post a report on each by this time next week (says he with great conviction)
I will leave you with a recommendation.
I recently played my first board game in over ten years 'A few acres of snow' depicting the tussle between the British and French colonists of North America. Highly recommended by me- but for reviews by people who know more about board games have a look here http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/79828/a-few-acres-of-snow
