That's another blow! I can't remember us ever having so many players drop out at the 11th hour. Hope everything is okay Phil.

And even that is capable of changing on Sunday morning ... :roll:

Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend. I will be there from some time on Friday morning. The venue is available all weekend, so please do come early, enjoy the Expo, bring along stuff to share with us, etc.

Just wanted to thank everyone involved with this year's Challenge - particularly Tim Child, David Fairhurst and Andy Ellis for making sure that the rest of could enjoy a weekend's wargaming.

4 very enjoyable games vs Terry Shaw, John Patrick, Paul Longmore and Dave Putt saw me struggling to cope with the un-maneuverability of undrilled Knights and longing for the tactical flexibility of the Yuan Chinese. Commiserations to Paul who should have taken my army and would have done so with another 10 minutes of game time.

Looking forward to Britcon!

​Results from the BHGS Challenge @ UKGE now published

For the first time ever The BHGS Challenge moved north to the NEC in Birmingham to run alongside the gaming phenomenon that is UK Games Expo in June 2017. This put all of our BHGS Challenge players in a hall which at times must have had over 1,000 gamers playing miniatures and card games!

This year's attendance also represented a year-on-year increase in player numbers across those periods and systems which ran this year - so we certainly put on a great showcase for the tabletop gaming side of the hobby in front of the 16,000+ people who came to UKGE too. ​Full results for the periods where we have been sent them so far are now on our website, along with some pictures from the event - have a look and see who you can spot!

After the Challenge we also have the following competitions coming up in the next few months that you may be interested in attending: Britcon in August, the Ancients Pairs and FoW Pairs in September/October, and we are also supporting the Derby Worlds in October
