Each September for several years we've had a tradition to play a big Colonial game. The late and celebrated Peter Gilder's Sudan collection was heavily featured this time. In addition we played at a venue similar in size to Peter's Wargame Holiday Center.

Wonderful, and I agree with your thoughts about establishing war gaming traditions. I need to work on it.

ASTONISHING !!

Delighted to see the late Mr. Gilder's troops are still in action – and a bit agog at the 1:1 figure on top of the table! Homage to the great is good – my pirate game has a volcano that combines Krakatoa with Mr. Gilder to arrive at Gilderakatoa, rather in keeping with his reputed volcanic temperament. Of course, there are also the Scrubyward Isles and a bit of something for Mr. Featherstone in the mix.

Yes, a good tradition to further – the annual game with good friends served with savory eateries.

What a wonderful spectacle! I agree wholeheartedly regarding gaming traditions with close friends. It really is a social hobby and getting together with your friends around a great looking games table rolling dice and having fun is a true treat.

My local S. FL. group SMG, holds the annual SMG Regatta every December where we play a very large 15mm Limeys & Slimeys game. It's a big hit and we look forward to it every year.

Cheers,
JB
