French & Indian War

Well we took our 40mm F&IW game to Salute 2011 and it was most warmly welcomed. I hope to produce  a minisite on here soon so I can share any Legends rule tweaks and the images of the games we play. In the meantime thanks to all who played our game at Salute probably see you at SELWG:0)

End Of Empire

I managed to get the EoE articles finished and they are now with Wargames Illustrated, we wait to see how long it will be before they are published. And we are in talks, with a production company about  an End of Empire Web series. How cool is that?

Warhammer Ahoy!

I have started to publish the new Warhammer Ahoy! site. It isn't complete by any means but I am going for it as a way of spurring me on to get it finished. The Warhammer Ahoy! Yahoo group is growing all the time:0)

Who are SPIRIT OF THE GAME?

We are a small group of friends in Essex who have played various tabletop wargames together for the last fifteen years. Over the years we have played many different systems - fantasy, sci-fi and historical. The main games we play are Games Workshop products or versions of. But we also play games made by many other companies and of course those we write ourselves.

SPIRIT OF THE GAME ARE NOT    

To find out more about us and what we do, explore the sites below.

Why SPIRIT OF THE GAME?

Over the years we have played various games, our usual principle is: Play a game once, if it's a good game, play it again! Nowadays we find we don't have as much time to play as we would like, and our overriding concern is to have fun! There are a number of things that have little importance to us: Winning at all costs (winning is important, why play a game if you don't want to win? But not at the cost of enjoyment.) Fussing over the precise, exactness of a figure's appearance (are those the right colour epaulettes?) Spending countless hours debating if that might really have happened (its only a game you know!) 

Playing in the 'spirit of the game' then is the most important element of what we do.

What's this site for then? 

As we have developed new games or campaigns we have produced websites for them, this site acts as an umbrella for those other sites allowing you to visit various sites produced by us,  and hopefully encourage you to play in the spirit of the game. 

N.B. This site is run by gamers for gamers. Where we refer to someone else's product we do so IN THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME no infringement of copyright is intended. All of our sites provide relevant links to the copyright holders and to other manufacturers.
