Little Wars Melbourne 2013
not long to go to 25th May!!!
This is a game like real war, played against time, and played under circumstances of considerable excitement, and it is remarkable how elastic the measurements of quite honest and honourable men can become.
- HG Wells, Little Wars (1913)
In 1913, 100 years ago, HG Wells published a set of rules for playing games of war on one's parlour room floor. It was the culmination of many years' worth of fun he had enjoyed with his fellow gentlemen playing with his collection of toy soldiers. We at Little Wars Melbourne would like to commemorate this anniversary by celebrating with a day of miniature gaming!
Mornington Secondary College is this year's venue, and it offers a few new options to us.
- a HUGE amount of room
- flexibility on time, which allows 10am-10pm for gaming
- a lot of parking and accessibility
- a self-contained space for Bring n Buy
For more information on the venue, please visit our venue page:
The emphasis for this year is on freedom and flexibility - for attendees, gamemasters and traders. Breakout areas for boardgames and/or wargames. Extra rooms for possible roleplaying/skirmish/campaign gaming. A LOT of tables for BIG games. There are a huge range of possibilities, limited only by one's imagination!
