I live in Fareham but Saturdays are a non-starter for me.

If you have any club members who fancy a mid-week game please ask them to get in touch? I play FoGA&M and want to start playing FoGR.

Please pass on my email address - peterdalby@talktalk.net

Cheers
Pete

As my sister lives in Southampton I might be able to drop in occasionally if doing family visiting type stuff :)

We are looking into holding some games midweek, we are currently seeing how much support we would likely expect.

Just an update to the very old thread messages above. As chairman of the club now I can confirm, yes we do have a large number of a regular players of FOGA and FOGR players. We did attempt to have a by weekly Wednesday night meeting which unfortunately did not continue due to numerous reasons. We are going to address this again in the near future. Please do look at our website which will give you dates and times of our meetings. We have a number of members in the Southampton area who game as and when work permits, I am sure midweek games could and would be arranged through the club site. Nik by all means please do visit, you will be made most welcome.

Cheers Kevin, chairman

New member here on this forum, and also a member of the WWS which I've been attending for just under three years now. It's an excellent club - so much so that I am happy to do the two hours plus round trip and ignore much more local clubs, a couple of times a month. There's usually at least one big FoGR game each meeting, often more. Usually, it's 1400 points on the "long" Saturdays (10am-6pm) and 800/900 points on the "short" Saturdays (1pm-6pm) - I think all army books are covered, but mainly Tudor and ECW.

Just to add that a triumvirate of Wessex Wargames Society members, alternating as a pair under the name "The Double Ones", managed to come a very creditable last (out of 12 teams) in the Abingdon Doubles last October, snatching a draw from the jaws of victory in the last of our four matches by failing a death roll of 1 with the final roll of the bones. But were we disheartened? Well.....er, yes, a bit actually as we could easily have come 7th, things were so close. Nevertheless, inspired by our unexpectedly high placing, we are now thinking of entering two teams in the Devizes Doubles in July. Onwards and downwards is our motto.......so look out for us (hint: if you are looking for us, starting at the bottom of the league table will save you a lot of time).

Just a quick update to this thread. The FoG:R players at Wessex Wargames Society are about to start an ECW campaign in January 2020, using the FoG:R rules for battles and army lists. If there are any current - or lapsed, we are happy to rescue "fallen" wargamers - players in the Southampton area, or further afield, I drive down from Haslemere* as does my regular sparring partner David Hewkin (the only other gamer in the village :lol: ), you are most welcome.

(That's the Surrey one, not the Buckinghamshire one - that would be a bit too keen!)
