VCOW Day 2

Today starts at 9.00am with two sessions:
  • ‘Give me back my legions!’
  • ‘Remote wargames’
These will end at 10.30am, and after a thirty-minute coffee break ...
  • ‘English Civil War Virtual TEWT’
  • ‘Carrier Strike’
... will run from 11.00am until 12.30pm.

After lunch (12.30pm until 2.00pm), there will be three game sessions ...
  • ‘One Hour World War 2’
  • ‘The Convoy: Gridded Age of Sail’
  • ‘Remote Kriegsspiel’
... taking place until 4.00pm.

After a thirty-minute break for afternoon tea, Professor Gary Sheffield will talk from 4.30pm until 5.20pm about ‘Wargaming & History’. He will be followed by Graham Longley-Brown, who will talk about ‘Defence & Recreational Wargaming’ from 5.20pm until 6.00pm.

A dinner break will last from 6.00pm until 7.30pm, when two further sessions will take place. The first will be a large-scale multi-player game entitled ‘Unfortunate Difference’, and it will last from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.

The evening will end with the traditional historical singalong from 9.40pm until 10.30pm ... but for the first time ever, it will be done online!


  1. G'Day Bob, It looks like you guys are really making the most of it - well done. I would be interested is hearing about the ECW virtual TEWT. Some of my fondest memories of OCTU were Tewting. Cheers Greg

    1. Delta Coy (Greg),

      I’m not sure if the Session was recorded or not, but if it was, you might be able to see what actually took place.

      TEWTs are a good training method, as is the traditional ‘staff ride’.

      All the best,

      I hope that you think that it has been worth the £5.00 you paid!

      All the best,

      I’ve had similar comments from other attendees. It seems to have been enough to cover any costs that might arise as well as just enough to make people value It.

      All the best,
