We’re now on Flickr and Twitter

Today I’ve created both Flickr and Twitter accounts for The Abbeywood Irregulars. Flickr is so that photos can be easily shared and linked to from the website and Twitter as another way to get news about the groups activities out to a wider audience.

Links to both services have been added to the navigation bar above, but for completeness, here are the appropriate web addresses:

Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/abbeywoodirregulars/
Twitter – https://twitter.com/AbbeywoodIrregs

There is also a Flickr Group at https://www.flickr.com/groups/abbeywoodirregulars/, for anyone who already has a Flickr account to add photos to, rather than have them re-uploaded to the group’s account.

First Games of 2016

So last Saturday, January 2, saw The Abbeywood Irregulars gather for their first meeting of the new year. It was a very relaxed affair with no real plan except for some games to be played and mince pies consumed. There had also been talk of mulled wine.

Games played during the day included:

  • Airfix Battles
  • SAGA
  • SAGA – The Crescent and The Cross
  • DBM

Of these, Airfix Battles was the most played. This was a playtest version of the game that will be released later this year by Modiphius Entertainment. Thanks to Alan for bringing it along for us to try out. I know it garnered a number of positive comments and suspect it may well be making a regular appearance once it is released. Alan has written a blog post discussing the day’s games.

I don’t think any photos were taken on the day, but if they were, I’ll update this post with some links.

Next up it’s 15mm Napoleonic (Northern Wars) on Saturday, February 6. More details to (hopefully) follow.
