Visiting Fireman

Last night Tim Gow – a fellow member of Wargame Developments who co-organises the Conference of Wargamers [COW] with me every year – paid his (almost) annual visit to my wife and I. As happened on previous occasions, he was in London for a conference and made time to come over for a chat, something to eat, and a wargame!

We spent a very pleasant evening together, and managed to fight the Battle of Bull Run using BATTLE CRY ... which he won! (The end positions for both sides can be seen in the following photograph.)


We also spent time talking about wargaming in general and the Conference of Wargamers [COW] in particular. Quite a few ideas were discussed (including a possible Plenary Game for the next Conference), as were several potential scenarios for large-scale MEGABLITZ wargames we might fight in the future.

As usual my wife and I enjoyed seeing Tim, and hopefully he will be visiting us again in the very near future.

  1. Hi Bob,

    It is always a pleasure to have gaming company - especially if you can get a game in as well!

    In my opinion any of the Command and Colours series makes for a cracking game and I am sure the tussle was hard fought.

    All the best,

  2. David Crook,

    It was nice to see Tim and to actually fight a battle with a live opponent for a change.

    I chose BATTLE CRY because it was close at hand and I knew that Tim was familiar with the game (I think that he owns a copy).

    All the best,

    Bob
