Game Format

Megagames are essentially very large scale World War Two wargames, with somewhere between 30 and 50 participants. The games are played with 1/300th or 6mm Armour (mostly GHQ) and Infantry model from Adler. The games have a command structure, with Army commanders making strategic decisions which effect the decisions that Corps and Divisional Commanders make on the battlefield. Added to this are separate Air and Naval Games (if appropriate to the scenario) with supply and reinforcement considerations. The daytime part of the game is spent resolving the table-top action, the evening can be as varied as briefings, planning new games, setting out the new terrain, trying to amend the plan that fell to pieces on turn 3 on the first day of a 2 day game, or just occasionally a rest night. Whatever the nights challenge there is always plenty of chat and maybe one or two beers
