Wargaming on vacation?

Anyone who has ever been on a wargaming vacation can tell you that there are plenty of upsides to combining these two activities. For one thing, wargaming is a great way to pass the time on a long journey. Whether you’re travelling by land, sea, or air, there’s nothing like a good game of wargaming to help the miles fly by.

Wargaming can also be a great way to bond with your fellow travelers. Vacations are all about making memories, and what could be more memorable than spending an evening engaged in an epic battle?

Finally, wargaming can be a great way to add some excitement to your vacation. If you’re looking for a bit of competition, there’s no better way to find it than by pitting yourself against other wargamers from around the world.

What wargames you ask? We will of course bring the bigger titles in the hobby but will do our best to include some new and fresh mayhem from indie companies or new popular titles. So you can check out some new titles alongside your Warhammer, Star Wars and Dust1947 systems with a splash of historicals for good measure.

So if you’re thinking of taking a wargaming vacation, go ahead and book that ticket—you won’t regret it.

Oh and don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and dice! We’ll see you onboard!
