Title: 23rd Beer & Pretzels Games Weekend
Post by: Zarniwoop on 13 September 2011, 00:09:43
The 23rd Beer & Pretzels Games Weekend (http://spiritgames.co.uk/bnpdetails.php)
12-13th May 2012


at the Town Hall, Burton on Trent

With our usual mix of board, card, roleplaying and miniatures games with good food & beer, in a splendid venue.

Open 10.00 - 10.00 on Saturday

10.00 - 7.00 on Sunday

Tickets 5 per day or 9 for both

available on the door or in advance from Spirit Games Tel. 01283 511293.

I expect that there will be dark mutterings as it is only 9 years since the prices last went up, but the Council now charge 5 times as much for the use of the bar.

There is ample free parking, and the railway station is 2 minutes walk away.

The essential features are:
Guaranteed playing space
Free board games library - plus plenty of people bringing their favourite games
Participation miniatures wargames
Organised role-playing sessions
Disorganised role-playing sessions
Good beer
Hot and cold food

Newcomers - don't be slow in asking for assistance. If you are at a loose end or unsure of what the set-up is, anyone near the ticket/help desk will be happy to help.

If you plan on running any Specifc BoardGames or RPG's then please post details in the Beer and Pretzels (http://www.bigbangburgerbar.co.uk/Forum/index.php?board=91.0) area so space and players can be organised.

Beer & Pretzels 2012

We are starting to get an idea of what is due to be organised:

Andy Holmes of Tavernmaster Games
will be running Tunnels & Trolls once again this year, on Saturday and probably Sunday too, with a new adventure written specially for the occasion

The Cannock Games Club
will be running assorted RPGs on the stage, they are open to suggestion at this stage

There will be a Malifaux being played, and spare forces available for borrowing.

The Long Minute
British Superhero role-playing. A play-test of the new Squadron UK rules by the author of Britain's first Superhero RPG. You'll create your own unique Hereos who will be thrown head-first into a city-wide mystery. Action packed but needing as much brains as brawn to save the day.

GM: Simon Burley. Number of players: 3-5.
Slots: (1) Morning
Slots: (2) Afternoon (If any players want to "carry over" into the second slot - I do have alternative adventures...)

And of course John Martin will be running a participation wargame in his usual patch.

Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh!

On Sunday there will be a 15mm 1860's game using 1960's rules - wargaming from its formative years! And hopefully more Superhero sessions with Simon Burley.

More info as it comes in...

I will also be running the shop on Sunday whilst Phil is off "Thundersprinting" & am looking for volunteers to assist as its always a busy day & I can't do every thing myself.
