Conference of Wargamers bookings: Only a few places left!

Bookings for COW2014 (this year's forthcoming Conference of Wargamers) have been coming in thick and fast, and I now only have one – possibly two – single occupancy rooms left. Once those have gone, the only way I will be able to fit further attendees in is if people who have already paid agree to share with someone (which is highly unlikely) or the booking is for a non-residential place at the conference.

The cost of attending COW2014 is £260.00 as a resident and £230.00 as a non-resident.

Bookings can be made by post (Cheques payable to 'Wargame Developments') or via the Wargame Developments website using PayPal.

The current programme for COW2014 includes the following sessions:

Tim Gow et al
A MIGHTY WIND – The Plenary Game
1944. The Home Islands are threatened by a huge enemy battle fleet and invasion force. It is our sacred duty to die for the Emperor …

WD Display Team North
DOODLEBUGGERS
Take to the skies over Kent to prevent those new unsporting V-1 flying bombs reaching London. Who will be the top scorer in No. 607 ‘Knuston’ Wing?

Will Whyler
GLADIOLUS (the old SOA Gladiator game)

Jim Wallman
CABINET OFFICE BRIEFING ROOM A
A committee game for up to 12. Crisis management of an unprecedented and dangerous crisis … and explaining it on the Today Programme.

Jim Wallman
SAVING PRIVATE MOUAT
A 100% Totally Not Footfall mission to rescue one of HMGs most vital assets.

Jim Wallman
WARRIORS FOR THE WORKING DAY
Just another wargame involving toy tanks in WW2 … but very suitable for those who can't tell their HVSS from their APDS.

Jim Wallman
LITTLE WARS: THE WAR OF FIREFLY'S NOSE
If there's any enthusiasm for lounging around on the grass and projecting matchsticks at each other randomly … this is the session for you!

John Bassett
HEMLOCK AND DEMOCRACY
404BC: Sparta has defeated Athens. The birthplace of democracy groans beneath the Thirty Tyrants. But a small group of rebels seek to change all that ... A political/military role-play featuring Spartan warlords, philosophers, priests, democrats and oligarchs.

John Bassett
OVID FOR WARGAMERS
John Bassett on his favourite Roman poet: man about town, wit, master of seduction, intriguer at the imperial court and exile. Will feature a re-enactment of the sad, sad story of Orpheus, with audience participation.

John Armatys
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
A simple set of wargames rules for company level actions in the early Twenty First Century using 15mm figures and die cast aeroplanes. An entertainment for up to four players.

Wayne Thomas & David Brock
NIMY BRIDGE IN 15MM
A refight of the attack against the Mons salient by the German 18th Division of the IX Corps. The latest adaptation of "Far Away Wars" for 1914.

Ian Drury
THE SIEGE OF FORT WILLIAM HENRY ... OR, BRING ME THE HEART OF COLONEL MUNRO
The notorious battle of the French and Indian Wars, and centrepiece of THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS re-created using the latest edition of the “Redcoats & Rebels” rules and a very large number of model trees. With the caveat that the session may take more liberties with history than James Fenimore Cooper, this is for 6-8 players.

Ian Drury
MUSKETS & TOMAHAWKS ADG
French & Indian Wars using 25mm figures and the French skirmish rules “Muskets & Tomahawks”. The exact scenario depends on the presence of celebrated frontiersman Pete Grizzell.
