Every week, once a week we play a battlegame night. This night consists of players battling over single or multiple objectives. This objective could involve planting a flag in a certain place, guarding your army's champion whilst trying to kill the other side’s champion, or simply slaughtering them all!
Regardless of your objective, you can be certain of one thing; action packed battle carnage on the regular day at the regular time week in and week out. We cater for all matter of skill, from the fully trained one-man/woman army to the newbie wondering which end to hit them with.
For our new players, we will teach you how to swing your blade, how to defend yourself and launch your attacks. We cannot however guarantee your survival (In game of course).
For those one-man/woman armies out there, we will offer you a chance to show us what you can do with a weapon in order to gain proficiencies. However, your first night, like everyone else, will be spent in the introduction training.
This is because we are focused on Safety and skill overall. We aim for you being able to come back after dying 30 times and not have a scratch on you. We will train all our participants to a strong standard and to grasp the skills needed to not only kill their opponent but ensure they are able then to walk off the field unharmed.
