Players must be 18 years of age or over – we may ask for proof.

Children aged 16 and over are allowed to play providing they are accompanied by a playing parent or legal guardian.

Okto Eight is the phonetic for the number eight when radio atmospherics turn to little more than mush.
The number eight is key to an organisation that creates eight-hour Milsims; military simulation games involving Airsoft Replica Imitation Firearms, uniforms, movie roleplay and a fair smattering of smoke, props and things that go bang.
Total immersion is the watchword and Okto Eight engage their clients months before the action begins, with news reports and intelligence, building up to an action-packed climax.
Join in now, leave work and stress behind and become somebody else for a weekend.
Take on the mantle of a Special Forces operative, Private Military Contractor, or an armed Tribal Herdsman for a straight eight hours in theatre; blood, guts and glory. At the end of the Saturday game, go home or back to your motel, have a hot shower and sleep soundly in a soft bed. If you’re keen, you can camp over on the Saturday night and forego the shower and soft bed in favour of more realistic conditions. Battle recommences on Sunday morning for another eight hours straight.
Operation Scimitar
In the previous episode, Phoenix PMC managed to steal the formula for ZPAP 55; a volatile purple liquid nerve gas which attacks the human nerve system and can kill very quickly. Once the victim succumbs, it leaves no trace, making the area safe to occupy by invading troops; a great way to clear areas of unwanted occupants or visitors.
In Operation Scimitar, the action moves to Libya.The “Tizzit” are an indigenous people, who have occupied North Africa for 3,000 years. They are a proud race, with their own language and customs. Colonel Gaddafi, the former dictator of Libya did his best to eradicate them, but instead he ended up eradicated himself, throwing Libya into a terrible civil war in the ensuing power struggle attempting to fill the vacuum he left behind.Libya is currently being fought over by the LNA and the GNA, together with a multitude of smaller warlords and factions; fragmented like a broken mirror. The developed world watches the chaos from the side-lines and different countries back one opponent or the other in a proxy war of so-called civilised countries. Meanwhile, civilians suffer and migrants flee for safer shores.Almukhtar is a warlord in western Libya and has engaged Phoenix to use ZPAP 55 to destroy the Tizzit. Almukhtar wants to strike them so hard, with such finality, that these indigenous people are unable to offer further resistance and surrender their gas-rich homeland to him. Phoenix are promised Gold as a down payment with a share in the gas riches once the job is finished.
The LNA are supported by many countries including Russia and Egypt. However, the UN, including the UK and the USA support their opponent, the GNA.Fearing genocide of an already endangered people and the loss of Libyan gas reserves to Russia, NATO need to act, but cannot afford to get embroiled in open war and the expense that will entail after the financial destruction of COVID19.The JTF SF unit are despatched to Libya to support the Tizzit and combat both Almukhtar and his Phoenix “ronin”. The Tizzit are herdsmen, often with facial tattoos and who engage in strange tribal customs. However, armed with weapons fresh from NATO armouries, they face a fight to the death, to protect their loved ones and all they stand for – their very existence.Will Almukhtar finish what Gaddafi started? Will ZPAP 55 finally be released in a cloud of purple, laying waste to western Libya or will the JTF save the day?Operation Scimitar will be an adrenaline fuelled weekend of tactics, asymmetrical warfare and role-play and is to be the ninth game in this exciting Bad-To-The-Bone series.
Initial information is already posted on the Okto Eight Facebook page in the form of news clippings.
Once you decide who you will fight for and pay your deposit, you will receive access to a secret Facebook page which will give you access to top secret reports and emerging information. At this time, you can also communicate on a secure “comms” link to your team mates and discuss tactics. The other forces won’t see your comms or intel. If you aren’t a Facebook user, we can arrange to send the information to you by e-mail. This information will not be available on the public OEM Facebook page and it will not be accessible until a player has booked and paid a booking deposit.
