    A while ago I had suggested either a Cambrai 1917 one day or Samurai one dayer

    I’ve heard very little back.

    I would like to take part in the Cambrai game.
    Also the Samurai but less keen.

    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.

    thanks
    Simon

    I have 2 armies. A Renaissance army with Sams and Ashigaru and an earlier one with just Sams.

    We have

    Jon
    Pete
    Andy
    Bob
    Ian

    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.

    We now have

    Jon
    Pete
    Andy
    Bob
    Ian
    Lynette
    (Wayne).. will it help if I bring Saki Wayne?
    Simon

    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 cool

    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.

    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 comment

    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).
