What You Get At Crusade Wargames Show
Plenty to do and see for a start. Traders by the bucket load. A good mix of the best, the wierdest the novel, inspiration and just plain daft. We treat our traders well, a bit like old friends, and they come back year after year. You should always be able to do a deal with these fellows.
Current Show traders list available from the top menu.
That’s right games and more games. Both participation and demo games galore. From the rivers of Vietnam, to ancient battlefields, the skies above 1916 France, the waters of the Pacific and many more. Don’t be afraid to approach and ask questions and get involved. A lot of the games are put on by other local clubs such as Cardiff Wargamers or HATS and they are friendly and enthusiastic.
