No PEL yet? No problem.

Knowing HMGS as I do, I thought it would be easier for the GMs to start listing their games in a separate topic rather than wait for the PEL to come on line. Even if the PEL shows up 10 minutes from now, this still takes some of the pressure off of the HMGS staff while treating the symptoms of "PEL fever" currently being suffered by some gamers.

For myself, I know I sent in a couple of Horse and Musket games for either Friday or Saturday. (It's been so long I forgot the details.) I look forward to reading the details when the PEL arrives.

How about the rest of you?

The Preliminary Event List ("PEL") for Cold Wars 2017 is available on the website. I haven't read through it completely, but it is at least 45 pages long. There is also an additional section for tournaments. Enjoy.

Thanks, John.

I'll enjoy reading the PEL while it snows outside. I'm sure others will do the same.

GMs can still continue to talk about their games here.

I'm running "The Maul of America", a "beer and pretzels" game using the Ambush Z rules. If you thought Black Friday shopping is rough, you haven't seen anything yet..

Frostgrave, 11 AM Saturday. Parent/Child combos are more than welcome, I like to run games I know younger players can enjoy to draw more people into the hobby.

Moe, if I can beat the rush, I'm in for the Maul of America game. Still drooling over other options.

The Wargaming Company will be running three Napoleonic games using Et sans résultat! at Cold Wars.

We're doing small(ish) learning games, so players of all levels are encouraged.

An Overview of the rules and Quick Reference Guides are both available on our Downloads page. We'll be playing at 1"=75 yards with 15mm figures.

Hope to see you at the game!
