Phoenix Gaming Club is a well-known gaming club based in Rushden, Northamptonshire. The Club was formed in 1997 and this year celebrates their 25th year anniversary!
Attending the Kelmarsh Show over 17th & 18th April, the Phoenix Gaming Club exhibits several participation miniature table top games which visitors can have-a-go, and maybe even change the course of history!
Fantastic for enthusiasts, the Gaming Marquee allows visitors to relive or indulge in more fantasy-based scenarios. Here visitors can battle hordes of Dark Elvish Twilight Kin or the Undead, or maybe, if Sci-Fi is more your thing, there’s Stargrave, or perhaps even escape the clutches of the Walking Dead.
Here’s just a selection of games on offer at Kelmarsh this year…
Cybercity Terminus: A Science Fiction Participation Game: Join the various starship bandits, cyber gangs, mercenaries, and Xeno cartels descending on Cybercity Terminus, and fight each other and the Star Marshals for possession of a treasure trove of information that will set you up for life… or get you dumped into the closest trash vaporiser.
Battle at the Plains of Woe: A large Kings of War fantasy game: The Dark Elvish Twilight Kin of T’sksan Bloodcry with their allies the nightmarish Nightstalkers arrive at the Plains of Woe. However, Undead forces of Count Wolfrik face off on the other side.
