Star Wars Armada

Live Fire Exercise

At a small, secluded base the Imperial Navy is testing its newest and deadliest Starfighter – the TIE Defender. Intended by Sienar Fleet Systems to be the top-end of a HI-LO mix of the TIE series, the TIE Defender is being put through its paces by Imperial pilots prior to authorizing full series production.

Rebel spies have determined that the Imperials are testing a new Starfighter and an Alliance task force jumps in to disrupt the tests and gain intelligence regarding the rumored fighter. A small Imperial carrier force responds to the base commander’s cries for support as the TIE Defender pilots don their flight suits for more realistic testing than they had expected.

Saturday 9:00-1:00

Operation Sealion 1940.

First week of Operation Sealion. German recon units reach Woking south west of London. Waiting for them are Dad’s Army (home guard), a bunch of locals, and some Dunkirk returnees. A tactical game with a bit of humor…” Sir, I told you we should have closed the pub.”

Saturday 2:00p-6:00p

This combination adventure/movie/roleplaying game is unlike anything you’ve played before.

Featuring rocket troops, gun-toting nuns, leopard men and whatever else Ed’s fertile imagination can produce.

Check Your 6! WW1 – Death of the Red Baron. Who really killed the Red Baron? The answer could be “you”! This game will recreate Richthofen’s last battle using unofficial Check Your 6! WW1 rules. If you have the eagle eye, the aggressiveness and the quick reflexes you might give the Bloody Baron the choice no WW-1 pilot wants to face…Jump or Burn!

Guild Ball – Who says football season is over!

OK, this isn’t that kind of football. If you don’t want to wait for the World Cup give this a try. You think Great Britain versus Argentina was violent…you ain’t seen nothing!
