A while ago I had suggested either a Cambrai 1917 one day or Samurai one dayer
I’ve heard very little back.October 5, 2017 at 2:43 pm #2629October 6, 2017 at 2:35 pm #2632
We have 2 potential dates. Theme aside can you please let me know if you want
26th November or 10th December, both are Sundays

Sunday 10th December is better for me.October 9, 2017 at 8:39 am #2634
I’ve asked Simon to book the 10thOctober 12, 2017 at 10:12 am #2644
The 10th is now booked. So next is to plan the gameOctober 13, 2017 at 12:55 pm #2649
So with the 10th booked my proposal would be to organise another big FoG:R Samurai battle. This time
Battle of Dōmyōji
On June 3, 1615 the Eastern Army of Tokugawa Ieyasu and the Osaka Army of Toyotomi Hideyori clashed in battle at Dōmyōji , Osaka. This battle was one of Japan’s major historical battles between samurai forces. This battle was one of a number of battles that took place during the Summer Campaign of the Siege of Osaka that led up to the fall of Osaka to the forces of Tokugawa and the death of Toyotomi Hideyori.
The game would accommodate 6-8 players (which is what we had last time). We would need a few armies. I have 2, Wayne & Lynnette another, Bob I think you have one and Dene. So we should be good for figures.
At the moment this is the plan, and I’m looking for interest. I’m happy for someone to organise something else. But we just need a few decisions now.

I have 2 armies. A Renaissance army with Sams and Ashigaru and an earlier one with just Sams.October 13, 2017 at 7:20 pm #2651
Please count me in for the Samurai game.October 15, 2017 at 10:32 am #2652
so a couple more to be viable
There is no reason at all if you want to attend but not t play the game. Lets let to make it a full turn out.October 18, 2017 at 7:11 am #2654
We now have
(Wayne).. will it help if I bring Saki Wayne?
So we are now definitely viable. So others can join in or play a separate game if this doesn’t appeal.
I’ll bring some nibbles, but as its close to the holidays perhaps we can bring some food in a make it more of a jolly. So volunteers to bring something in would be coolNovember 20, 2017 at 2:25 pm #2684
I’d like to propose a slight change. Steve is running a FoG:R battle (Augrim) . So rather than playing 2 FoG:R game we propose we have a big Team Yankee game. This gets to use the new 12×6 TY mat we bought at Reading. Please comment.November 20, 2017 at 3:23 pm #2685
Hi Simon, I’m quite happy to play Steves game but I worry if we have another main game we may struggle to have enough people to play both.

Bob Amey has cancelled. So that really leaves Jon Phipps Peter Gregory Andy D , Ian Wilson , Lynnette Maxim .. and maybe Wayne,Simon & Colin Marsden. Ray is away , and I suspect so is Dean. So As there is a FoG:R game + whatever Richard is playing. Its looking more likely that it will be a gameS day. So for those not playing FoG then we could look at Team Tankee (but we might be pushed for toys), or 40K is a favourite … or even just a selection of board games. Please call out if you have a commentDecember 1, 2017 at 7:57 am #2694
So the general consensus is that we leave it a everyone to organise a game, so its a game(S) days rather than a 1 day game for all. So roughly we have FoG:R Augrim, Richard B’s game (whatever that is), Boardgames from Lynnette and Colin (and maybe others).From my POV I’m organising a morning game (40K) with Peter and hopefully Jon will play me in the afternoon (either 40K or SB).
