Practise for Games 2007 20-Jul-07

A practise night for some of the games which will be shown at Games 2007 was held at Mitcham with only a couple of weeks to go before the big event. Games 2007 isthe open day to the public for Nunawading Wargames Association Inc. (NWA) to show off how much fun wargaming can be.


Practise Night at Mitcham

Each year we encourage our members to test run the games they will put on display at our major event for the year. This usually occurs at one of our normal club meetings. The practise for Games 2007 was held 3 weeks and 1 day ahead of the big event. It was held at a Friday night club meeting.

This is a chance to try out ideas, particularly for the public participation games. It is also an opportunity to seek feedback on games, terrain and figures as well as provide a teaser to encourage club members to come along and see the finished displays.

Some of the games below will be on display at Games 2007. Some are just part of a usual club meeting. You will have to see Games 2007 to find out which is which!
