I say! Can it be true? It is quite possibly time for our 9th official all-dayer!

Gamers North of Manchester England (GNOME) are holding another of our famous and increasingly popular all-dayers on Sunday 30th September 2012 at St Mary's Church Hall, Horwich. Access to the car park is from Richmond st (BL6 5QT for you Satnavvies). Doors open at 10:30AM and we need to be out by about 10PM.

As previously, we have the hall to ourselves and the bar is open from 12 Noon to 10PM. There are shops and takeaways within easy walk but we will be providing some light grub at around 6PM to keep you going.

Everyone is welcome of course, from newbies to old hands and including kids (so long as they are gamers and not run-around-and-knock-things-over-ers). Bring your own games or come and play ours. Around 90 gamers turned up last time including many new faces and there is a genuinely friendly atmosphere.

Despite the impending Grexit and the hated pasty tax (this is Bolton after all), we have managed to maintain entry costs at £3.50 (£1.50 for under 16s).

£3.50 for nearly 12 hours of gaming, which includes free hotpot/soup at 6:00PM or £120 for 10 seconds of the men's 100m final (plus £5 for a bottle of water and £10 for a soggy burger and chips). I think the choice is clear.

Anyway...

Please post below if you are interested in coming, it really helps the planning. Also, let everyone know if there is anything special you will be bringing or would like to play.

If you have never been before, you can get a feel for what the day will be like by checking out the lists from last time, March '12, Mar '11, Sep '10, March '10, March '09 and Sep '08..

Hope to see you there.

Thought I might do another M44 Overlord, or possibly two if there is enough interest. Any takers?

I am definitely going to make an increased effort to attend this time, and also hopefully bring others of the Cumbrian contingent.

I am moving in with my partner in Preston at the end of August all the way from skaggy Southampton. So providing nothing rears its ugly head this is a definite possibility. Will be good to find myself some new people to play with as I am sad to leave my old playing buddies behind.

Welcome to the NW.

Please ignore the posts about March (I haven't a clue what they mean) blush

I think there is now a club in Preston but if not you are welcome to join us every Thursday night in Bolton.

I thought they meant the enforced march to the sports hall when the Church hall is double booked ...

Me +7.

They may add themselves. So I'll keep you updated if they do, but I also expect at least another 4.

Car pooling is the way to go.

I'm hoping to have a few kickstarted games too. If they bloody arrive by then that is. Chicken Caesar, Sentinels of the Multiverse (Plus expansions ) and Ground Floor (inc. Skyline).

Count me please.

I will bring Arghandh Tactics which is my own design. I hope someone will be happy to test it as I am looking for a good insight and comments from some professional hardcore gamers.

Game is light in rules tactic skirmish game set in fantasy world.
