We hope everybody is keeping well and managing during Lockdown 2.0 – we have now published all of our planned December open days on our website calendar. General ticket sales will start at midday on Wednesday 18th November. In the meantime, if you hold a ticket to a cancelled Open Day from November, please email us with the date you would like your booking transferred to and we’ll get you on before general sales open.
If you are unable to transfer to a December date, we will happily transfer your ticket in the new year for you instead.
We are really excited to have our first open days at our new Battle Lakes venue in Kent on 5th & 6th December, especially as we had to cancel the previous one at the last minute! We would very much welcome input on the weekend from previous players who used the site when Zed’s Adventures were running it, as it will be the first time that we’ve actually played on it. We expect the first few turnouts to be reasonably small compared to what the site can accommodate, so we plan on running shorter, skirmish scenarios in smaller areas of the site initially before moving on to full on FilmSim days as soon as possible.
Obviously, it’s that time of year again, so December will mostly be Xmas themed games which are not to be taken too seriously. Please at least be prepared to wear a bright red or green hat for team ID on the day, and bring your own if you can. Bonus points for full santa/elf/reindeer costumes!
We have two styles of Xmas events lined up for you – our annual FilmSim “SANTA vs ELF” games which see the evil ELF soldiers trying to ruin Xmas by bring down Santa’s sleigh with a SAM. The crack team of S.A.N.T.A. special forces will be trying to retrieve all of the scattered presents from the ELF’s clutches and save the day! This is not our usual FilmSim day, please don’t try and be “tacticool” and moan because you’ll get spotted in a red hat, just come and have some silly fun but using the FilmSim rules.
It would also be immensely helpful if every player could manage to bring along a couple of fake presents for us to scatter around and use as props – the more objectives to fight over, the more fun it is.
We will also be running our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” post-Xmas skirmish. This year it will be on the Sunday and Monday after Xmas. Loads of fast-paced, shorter skirmish games to keep you moving and working off the extra calories which you will no doubt have taken on over the previous week. Again, leave your “tacticool” at the door and come along with a mind to have some silly fun. Please bear in mind that these events usually sell out pretty quickly and this year we can’t open anywhere near as many spaces as normal (the record was 120 I think), so make sure you decide sooner rather than later.
In the event that any of these events (or future events in the new year) are unable to go ahead due to national or local restrictions being brought in at the last minute, we remain committed to ensuring that our customers do not lose out financially as a result. You guys have been really understanding of the situation so far in accepting options such as holding your booking until a future date of your choice or issuing a gift voucher for the website which has really helped us out. Anyone awaiting a refund should receive it within a few days following the ticket sales going live – we really appreciate everybody’s patience.
Stay safe, we look forward to seeing you all soon.
