Definition of Tabletop Miniature Wargaming:
Miniature wargaming is a form of wargaming which incorporates miniature figures, miniature armor and modeled terrain as the main components of play and which was first invented at the beginning of the 19th century in Prussia. Like other types of wargames, they can be generally considered to be a type of simulation game, generally about tactical combat, as opposed to computer and board wargames which have greater variety in scale.
Game masters will have larger than life “board” games setup depicting History, Fantasy and Science Fiction. Many of the terrain elements you will see on these boards can be (and some were) made right here in the Makerspace! If this event gains popularity We may add some workshops, round tables and presentations at future game days.
There will also be makers on hand to give tours and explain a bit about the Makerspace that is available to anyone who joins.
Admission to the gaming session is $5R/$10NR per person, with profits going to the Makerspace.
