Dithering on the Danube

Being: – Paul's Napoleonic grand tactical campaign in the Danube theatre, 1809, using the prettiest Kriegsspiel map ever (and some pretty nice blocks, too, though I say it myself).

Where: Little Gaddesden Village Hall, 20 miles NW of London United Kingdom (from whence lifts may be available).

When: 19th March 2017  11am-4pm - prompt arrival necessary to secure a plum role!

Please DOODLE HERE should you be able to make the decision to attend [Ditherers be assured, I believe that the Doodle can be withdrawn if necessary :-)]

Splendid! A gentleman in Colorado wishes to know what opportunities for plunder will be available, before he orders his uniform. I understand he has a penchant for silver.

I'm more of a dabbler myself, so I'll be Dabbling on the Danube.

Heels too low. You need high heels if you are really going to cut a dash.

I've been wondering who pinched my dress-down uniform. After the blighter, Diggers!

Too bad he's not wearing heels. He may be too fast for you.

Hopefully

There are 14 on the doodle now. That's the highest turn-out we've had in many a year.

It includes 2 Graham(s) though. Has he/they confirmed whether they are 'he' or 'they' yet?

We had a good turn-out for the 1809 game yesterday, and thanks to Paul for designing it.

Our next face-to-face k/spiel is Vikings!  Mayhem in 9th C England.  This will be on Sunday 7th May in Little Gaddesden.

Please use the doodle to express your interest, and preferred role.

I am sorry I missed it. I mixed up my dates Sad

Could the organisers or any of the players write a post-game report perhaps?

Perhaps Steve H is able to send me the photo(s) he took of the mapboard, so I can then attempt an illustrated AAR?

Hi folks

We now take a break for a few months to enjoy the traditional English fine weather.  Our next face-to-face game will be in late September.

* 24th September – Graham & Sean, with an ACW corps-level campaign, set in the summer heat of 1863.

If you are planning to come, please complete the doodle here https://beta.doodle.com/poll/wpnrc82gg6mpzec6#table

This will help those designing the scenario to accommodate the likely number of players.

Just to confirm that our next game after the summer break is an ACW corps level campaign set in the summer heat of 1863.

So far it looks like an excellent turn-out of 11 or 12.  The designers, Graham & Sean, would very much like to firm-up on numbers so they can finalise the scenario.

If you are planning to come but not yet registered your interest on doodle, can you please do so here https://beta.doodle.com/poll/wpnrc82gg6mpzec6#table

Post  Martin on Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:40 pm

Our apologies, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it has been necessary to move the ACW Campaign kriegsspiel from September to October.

A new doodle has therefore been created for October (see below).  If you had already registered for the game, we hope you can still make the new date.  If you couldn’t make September, hopefully you can make October!  In either case, please complete the dooodle so the game designers have an idea of numbers.

There will therefore be no game in September.

The autumn game schedule is therefore now as follows:

* 24th September – cancelled.

* 22nd October – Graham & Sean, with an ACW corps-level campaign, set in the summer heat of 1863.

Doodle here https://doodle.com/poll/wpnrc82gg6mpzec6

* 19th November – David, with Vietnam

Re: 2017 k/spiel game schedule

Post  Martin on Thu Sep 21, 2017 3:04 pm

Hi folks

Our next game is an ACW campaign set in 1863. The game will start at our normal time of 11 am. As per usual, we will probably conclude with a debrief over tea & biscuits, and finish about 4.30 pm.

We currently have 10 or 11 signed-up for this, but could still fit more in. If you’re interested, please complete the doodle here https://doodle.com/poll/wpnrc82gg6mpzec6

The doodle also allows you to express a preference for Union, Confederate and/or umpire.

Kind regards

Crikey. We're now up to 13 on the doodle, and I think at least 2 others are planning to come, so that's 15. We could be on for our largest ever game - Huzzah!

And what a potential boost to club funds. Maybe the long-delayed work on the Little Gaddesden Purple Slime Emporium will finally get underway.

ACW K/spiel on Sunday 22nd October

Post  Martin on Sun Oct 15, 2017 8:52 am

A final reminder that our next game is on Sunday the 22nd. This is a campaign game set in 1863. The game will start at our normal time of 11 am. As per usual, we will probably conclude with a debrief over tea & biscuits, and finish about 4.30 pm.

It looks like an excellent turn-out, but we could still fit more in. If you’re interested, please complete the doodle here https://doodle.com/poll/wpnrc82gg6mpzec6

Splendid news Diggers.

I'm not running this one, but Graham & Sean will no doubt make every effort to accommodate your preferences.

Even though some regulars cannot make this game, it still looks like a very strong turnout, which is encouraging.

Hello all,

I am monitoring flights for the Vietnam session. On the forum I just found the 2015 entry for a Vietnam game, is there a overview thread that I am overlooking? A doodle or anything?

Cheers,
