Bash Day III: Sunday 12th May 2019!

Sign up for BBB Bash Day!

The 3rd BBB Bash Day will be held in Oxford on Sunday 12 May 2019 in Wolvercote Village Hall, 1 Wolvercote Green, Oxford OX2 8AB.

This is an opportunity to play historical battles, using the Bloody Big Battles (BBB) rules.

We expect to have 5 or 6 participation games running simultaneously, and each table to run at least two games during the day, for a total of about 12 games.

Possible games include

English Civil War
American War of Independence Germantown
American Civil War Gettysburg, and/or another to be confirmed
Boer War
WWI Dunsterforce, and/or another to be confirmed

Game allocation will be less tightly organized this year than for previous Bash Days; players are invited to turn up and find a game on the day, and we will do our best to accommodate everyone and make sure people have games to play and troops to push around. Having said that, of course it is helpful for gamemasters to know in advance if they can expect particular players who have expressed an interest, so do get in touch if you want to play a particular game:

The event is being run on a regular OWS club Sunday, so some tables are being reserved in case club members need them to play non-Bash Day games. That said, we intend to have some extra games in reserve, available to lay on if tables are free and if there are enough players to need them.

Doors open for gamemasters from 08:00 a.m
Doors open for players 09:00 a.m.
Games to run between 09:30 and 17:30.
Out of hall by 18:00

5 entry on the door.
Tea and coffee should be available. Bringing a packed lunch is recommended to make best use of playing time; The Plough up the road does good food if you want something more substantial for lunch, and will be the venue for post-battle reorg in the evening.
