The Battle of the Wilderness, May 5, 1864. When General Grant took command of all Union armies, he was convinced that he could defeat the Confederates by a fighting a war of attrition. To that end, he moved his Army of the Potomac across the Rapidan River on May 4, 1864. Lee countered by moving Ewell and Hill to meet the Union advance. They met in the deep woods of the Wilderness around 1330 h. on May 5, 1864. In this battle, the Confederates must control the cross-roads to prevent Sedgewick’s 6th Corps. and Hancock’s 2nd Corps. from entering the battlefield. To simulate Fog-of-War, we will be using Blue wooden blocks to represent the Union brigades hidden in the woods, and Greywooden blocks to represent the Confederate brigades. During the battle, the dry woods caught on fire and immobilized wounded soldiers were burnt alive, crying and screaming throughout the two days of battle. This aspect of the battle will NOT be simulated in this table-top war-game.

Players are welcome to either bring along a level 3 character or pick a pre-generated one. Please bring a miniature for your character if you have one. This game is picking up on a story we started a few months ago, so if we run low on places priority will be given to existing players.

GAME: Runewars Miniatures
GENRE: Fantasy rank & flank
HOST: Luke Fraser & Thomas Paterson
RULES: Runewars Miniatures
PLAYER SLOTS: Up to 4 (a demo will last between 40-60 minutes).
Mass fantasy battles in the realm of Terrinoth. The game uses a dial-based initiative system (an evolution of x-wing, for those familiar with it) to resolve activations, with each unit locking in its action at the beginning of the round. Play proceeds in initiative order, with different actions taking place early and late. Not only does this create a tense fog of war effect, but it gives concrete mechanics to each unit, bringing their theme to life with gameplay. Can you guess your opponent's plan and stay one step ahead?

GAME: Mystery Scouts
HOST: Daniel Charlton

To an outsider, this sleepy northwestern town appears normal, but the residents know better. The wacky and preternatural are just everyday occurrences to its citizens - though nobody but the children seem to notice. Players assume the roles as juvenile scouts from this town's troop and since none of the grown-ups seem to notice, it's up to them to hunt down the truth.
