Our first Wicked Game Day - The Guns of August - was a success, so we are planning another! (We hope to do this every two months going forward.) The event will start at 10 AM and run until 5 PM, with nine games in two sessions, covering a range of historical periods. Gamers of all ages and skill levels are welcome!
Wicked Gaming Center is located at 70 Hancock Road, Peterborough, NH 03458. They can be contacted at (603) 933-9948. Queries regarding the event should be e-mailed to the organizers at email@example.com.
Below is the tentative game schedule. We will allow players to reserve spaces in particular games, but walk-ins will also be welcome. Admission is $15.00 for the day, and can be paid on arrival or purchased from Wicked Gaming directly, but reservations for specific games should be directed to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
