"The wargame convention of the year" – looks like it! I'd love to attend sometime! Airfare from the US is not bad this time of year.

Very impressive, thanks for sharing.

Are many of the games participation games? How do they handle signing up to play?

@holien

Yes, many of the games are public participation.

If you want to play you just ask someone at a table and they will let you know when to start. Quite often you will be asked to play if you just walk by.

Thanks Jim, I guess the show follows the Salute model rather the the Historicon style.

I.e a mix of demo games with some participation games, no formal sign up just walk up and look interested.

I must say the quality of the games and photos are superb, I feel a trip is in order.

Depending on where in the UK that you live Holien you should consider visiting as many of the other shows as possible.

Both Salute and Historicon are at the extreme ends of a variety of different show/convention styles.

I attend about 10 shows a year not including Crisis. Some of them are quite small but still have some impressive games.

One show, Hammerhead I believe only put on participation games.
