The South East London Wargames Group are a bunch of frothers who meet

in South London. Their site has info on their activities across the
UK including events listings, results, league tables and pictures(!)
and links to their favoured traders. Be sure to pay a visit to the
miniatures gallery, and if you play in the London area why not pay
them a visit in person? -Doc
Jersey Confederation of Wargamers [CLOSED]
These Philidelphia wargamers produced an excellent e-zine 'The
Volunteer' which detailed their wacky games... but have decided
to retire their website for some reason! No, guys, the web needs you!
Free wargames you say? To download on the web? Nonsense!
|Free Wargames Rules
Enough nonsense from us, frother Pete Jones has compiled a truly
excellent list of free wargames on the web here, to save us the bother!
Top man! Well categorised, easily navigable and kept bang up to date,
this is how it should be done! -Doc
Crazy game of fantasy napoleonics(!), with basic rules downloadable!
Unique miniatures too (you're gonna need them to play this!)-Doc
Chris Engle introduces the Matrix game. No its not based on the
film with Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburn and Carrie Ann Moss (mmm),
but a role-playing/battle game where each player can 'suggest'
how the story progresses, even what another player's character/country/race/cow
is doing! The referee then only has to determine how likely each description
is and roll a dice to see if it is true!
Looks like great fun, ideal of pbem play and easily adaptable for
any kind of setting- full reports of our SciFi version when we get
around to it! -Doc
|Destroy All Monsters!
John Xavier Crimmins brings you the game that lets you play with your
old monster toys and fight Mecha-Godzilla vs Giant Rancor! Climb buildings
and swat helicopters! Woohoo! -Doc
