Crusade Wargames Show - Penarth South Wales
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:26:15 AM »
Penarth & District Wargames Society has announced that they have decided discontinue Crusade, their annual wargames show.

The 2020 show was the 26th.  It turns out to also have been the last.

Rumour is that Firestorm Games in Cardiff run or host ADLG and other tournaments…

The event at Usk was presumably Godendag - which relocated to Firestorm Games some years ago.

Whilst I have been known to take part in the odd friendly tournament I generally prefer a show.  I am surprised that Wales does not have at least 2 or 3
