Well... that didn't take long.

So basically:

(A) the organization is still at the cat-herding phase,

BUT,

(B) You bastards have nabbed all the accommodation.

Nowhere to plug it in.

(NOT an insertion-based euphemism, right? I mean no electricity.)

Hello Mr G.

I believe LT is looking for suggestions of games which people are willing and able to put on. He'll prepare a picking list from those offers on which we will vote.

Options is a euphemism.

LT will be running a book:

Odds EB arrives at the right place: 10:1
Odds LT arrives on time 20:1
On time right place 200:1
Odds Norm arrives right time: 5:1
Odds Norm and LT both arrive right place and right time: 1000:1
Odds no domestic appliances are interfered with: 300:1
Odds Norm arrives with a HUUUUGE army given to him in a brown paper bag: 1:20 on

Victory book to be opened when the games are sorted.

To place a bet, shake LT's hand, scratch his palm with your little finger and whisper, "I am looking for some chancy options" into his ear.

WD3 X-Factor Bake-Off

So there are some game proposals for Framlingham 2014. Such is the generous nature of our contributors that some have proposed more than one game, and these probably need voting on first, while others are more focussed and have offered one game only.

The proposed games are:
Essex Boy
War of Spanish Succession 20mm

Simon
South American Wars of Liberation 1810-24 28mm

Peeler
Napoleonic 15mm DBN

Gavin P
1. WW2 10mm IABSM!
2. Vietnam 28mm
3. WW2 Air 1/300th 1/285th CY6 or Bag The Hun!

Tim Hall
1. largish ACW game. 28mm
2. The Colonial game circa 1880,
3. Normandy game in 1/72
4. A 1930's Colonial game
5. A 54mm WWII Normandy village fight
6. Plastic Army Men game
7. Post Apocalyptic skirmish game

LT
1. Monmouth Rebellion 1685 28mm
2. WW1 1914 28mm Mud n’Blood
3. VBCW 1937 28mm

What I’m going to do is run a first round vote for the multiple game offerings, so one vote on Gavin’s, Tim’s and LT’s suggestions and then a second vote on the winners from each of Gavin’s, Tim’s and LT’s plus the games proposed by Peeler, Essex Boy and Simon.

Note that these games vary (precise details to be given in the voting rounds going up today) from large 2 day games for most/all people to a half-day game for 2-4 people. So depending on the outcome of the voting we may need to rejig the games/results to provide a sufficient number of games that will give everyone a game all the time. In other words, the voting system is merely a means of sorting out orders of interest and does not necessarily mean that we will be tied to a result no-one really wanted.

To make this even remotely workable, please could you vote only if you intend* to come to Framlingham. However these are WD3 games which we like to think are just a little bit virtual so everybody else is naturally free to add comments/suggestions/ridicule.

As if I could stop you #-O .


*'Hopeful' votes accepted :d

Edit: As I put the polls up, I realised that given the variety in Tim's offerings it might be helpful to allow two votes per person. Then I thought it might be more helpful to allow this in all three polls. So you've got two votes. Don't all thank me at once b-)

Good stuff LT, very organised indeed!

I did offer 2 small 1/2 or 1 day games (17th century skirmish or scratchbuilt inter-war naval) but to be honest, the other options sound better and I've voted already!

Lots of very nice options up there. If we stay a week can we play them all ?

Thanks to everyone who's suggested hosting games - it sounds like it's going to be a fun weekend. And thanks LT for designing the electoral system!

I've cast my votes :AR!
