The venue was great (thanks for Nigel Wood et al for organizing) and it had a very homely feel with plenty of gaming space.

I got to the event on Friday afternoon and there was already a gathering when I arrived. I met the gracious organizers as well as a few Oldhammer friends including Blue in VT. After some hanging around, one of the local gamers graciously set up a game of Space Crusade for us and explained how to play. What a blast! Very reminiscent of Space Hulk with the 3-dimensional terrain and blip counters. The mission involved a dreadnought who was tough as nails to kill.
