CLWG meets on the first Sunday of the month in Anerley Methodist Church hall. [how to get to Anerley]
Sessions can be a fully formed game you’ve designed, or something you’re working on and want to playtest, or a half-baked idea on the back of an envelope – of just a discussion about the really cool idea you’ve just had… Send in your session idea on the form at the bottom of the page:

These are sessions offered by people that are not yet confirmed or allocated to a specific meeting. They're here so that we don't forget about them. Contact the games organiser (currently Jim) if you want to offer a session or put one of yours into the programme.
Session NameTypeBrief DescriptionWho from
The Siege of Delhi 1857Tryouta multi-player effort focusing on the problems of assaulting a rambling, medieval city against unknown opposition and without a map.... Real incidents based on one of the turning points of the Indian Mutiny, players may choose from a variety of personal objectives including 'glory' and 'cash'!Peter Merritt
Springtime For Hitler IIITryoutA 'multi-player solo' game of a reinforced German tank division during the breakout from Sedan. Need to ' git thar furthest with the mostest' creating critical morale & political crises for the Allies whilst handling variable opposition from the French, British, and of course OKW... 🙂 If people enjoy it, next spring may also do the July 1941 version with two divisional groups (not in competition at all) driving across western Russia, heading for Smolensk.....Peter Merritt
Infantry Doctrine 1650-1750Design SessionI'd like to talk about how to take ideas in infantry doctrine and how they develop to feed into a fast campaign system that could work at megagame speed with the idea of fighting several wars with the system and seeing how the doctrine develops (but not necessarily as a megagame). See my review of Formidable and Destructive for some ideas.James Kemp
