Sniper’s Nest Games Day

DSCF0844Thanet’s premier game emporium is running their second annual “Red Poppy” games day which raises funds for the Royal British Legion on Sunday 15th November at the Westcliff Cafeteria in Ramsgate. For those not lucky enough to have attended last year this is a fun event packed with participation games for you to enjoy for a humble donation to a top cause. It starts at 10.00 am and finishes around 4.00pm.

Sadly because of a double booking mistake by the venue there won’t be as many games as last year, but don’t let that put you off for a moment, many of Kent’s finest clubs will be there to entertain you. Slug’s favourite last year was the Deal Wargaming Club with their “Saving Private Ryan” game, although you got to play the German’s and the scenario was more about killing Private Ryan. This year they’re back and offering up the gentlemanly sport of Dinosaur Hunting.

Also attending will be the Dover Club who will be playing WW1 in 6mm, the Chatham Club who will be donning tights and all things green for their Robin Hood scenario, while the Sniper’s Nest gang will be all chocks away as they offer a WW1 Bombing Run experience.

Canny gamers should find they’ve time to play each game during the day, it’s all in your timing so get there early. Players are expected to make a donation for each game they play, and quite reasonably so.

The venue is actually on the left hand side of the circular water feature at the bottom of the map, with free parking along the length of the Royal Esplanade. The venue has a full restaurant and bar, more details here.

Last Minute Update: Unfortunately due to work commitments the Dover club has withdrawn from this event.
