Learn to Wargame - Introductory
Have you ever wanted to play or been curious about board war games, but were confused or intimidated about where to start? Do you have fond memories of Axis & Allies or Risk, but are looking for better designed games? Have you conquered the latest and greatest Euro games and looking for more? Are you looking for thematic games that tell interesting stories or help you understand history? Look no further.

Players may pick from a selection of 2-3 player, introductory war games. These games have been specifically chosen to introduce the basics of a number of different war game styles - Traditional hex and counter, card-driven, Commands & Colors system, COIN system and others. Take the basics learned here to explore a myriad of other games depicting events across history. Or just use them to prepare for the "Learn to Wargame - Intermediate" event!

After selecting a game based on system, time period, or simply length of play, rules will be taught, strategies discussed and someone will be available for any questions. Games on offer can be played in little as 10 minutes or up to 2 hours depending on the game selected.

Walk-ups are welcome throughout the event.
