Wargames Illustrated 7tv 2nd Edition Day
28/05/2016 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm£30
Stand by for action! Ever wanted to run you own Cult TV show? Or are you already the Producer and Director of a Cast of Heroic or Villianous Archetypes, either bent upon world domination or destined to save it? If the answer to either of these questions is a resounding “Affirmative!” then join us on Saturday 28th May 2016. We are offering 24 players the opportunity to visit our HQ in Nottingham, UK and take part in a Campaign Day set within the eclectic world of the Crooked Dice Games Studio’s finest product, 7TV Second Edition.
Tickets will cost £30 and will cover all food and drink, including snacks and a hot lunch. Producer-Directors will need to provide certain items for use on the day, including their own 28mm miniatures taken from whatever range they fancy!
In company with all our Gaming Events so far, this is NOT a tournament. Instead, we offer the opportunity to meet up with a wide range of gamers in a central location and have the chance to share an aspect of the hobby. Our Campaign Days are designed to be relaxed occasions where the social aspect of the hobby is paramount.
So, if you want to thwart devilish plots or threaten the world with that ‘laser’ in the garden shed, purchase a ticket TODAY!

The 7TV 2nd Edition Day is not a tournament. It is instead a Campaign Day set within the world of cult TV outlined in the rulebook. We are hoping for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You will note that the timetable is not ‘packed’ and you will not be rushed from table to table.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to WIHQ and taking part in the Mini-Series of the century!
