Type: News

As the Home of Wargamers is drawing closer, we thought it would be the right time to give you another update on what will take place. Last week we announced the basic setup for the presentations, as well as an indication of some of the games that will be presented and we will be announcing more of these in the near future. Today we would like to focus more on the location and the various events that will be going on around the presentations.

Firstly we would like to point out that the Home of Wargamers event is a great chance to have a Gamers Dream holiday in the magnificent medieval Costello de Pavone, Canavese. The Castello has been besieged four times throughout its history, but has never once been taken! However we are taking over the entire Castello for the 3 days of the event!!  The castle has been perfectly maintained and restored and the rooms are outfitted with all the luxuries that you could wish for, without losing any of their original medieval charm. This includes the main presentation areas, as well as the dining halls and of course your guest ‘billets’.

We will start the event on the first day with a drinks reception in the authentic 14th century court yard (if weather allows), after which we gather for a special event, as yet to be disclosed! In the evening we will assemble in the truly amazing Knights Hall, where a Medieval Banquet will be served.

On the second day, after a knightly breakfast, we will present a varied assortment of soon to be released games (more details will follow soon!) and you will be free to engage directly with the developers and the team.  In the evening you are invited to dine in King Arduin’s Hall (Let me google him for you) where the Grand Gala Dinner will take place.

On the third and final day, we will end the event with a tournament, of our upcoming title Battle Academy 2. Where you will have the chance to match yourself against the Matrix/Slitherine team, our developers and of course the journalists in a scenario specifically designed for the Home of Wargamers event, where you can compete for several BIG prizes, and of course the bragging rights.

The game presentations will form the core of the Home of Wargamers event, but the location and our schedule of events will make this a unique and memorable occasion, so don’t forget to bring your camera.

The Home of Wargamers will be held in Castello de Pavone in the shade of the Italian Alps from 14 – 16 May and you too can be there! Click here for more information.

    Spread the Revolution or fight against it! March to Glory is OUT!

    Thursday, April 12, 2018

    ''Napoleon is a torrent which as yet we are unable to stem. Moscow will be the sponge that will suck him dry.'' - Prince Mikhail Illarionovich Golenishchev-Kutuzov, Field Marshal of the Russian Empire

    Napoleon Bonaparte seems unstoppable. His military genius combined with the revolutionary fire of his troops has crushed every enemy that stood against him. He has already proved his ability against the Austrians in northern Italy, and now, as Emperor is ready to overthrow every European kingdom.

    Is he the Son of the Revolution, the bringer of freedom for all the people under the Ancien-Regimes, or a full of ambitions tyrant? Whatever the answer is, it is clear that only on the battlefield Europe’s destiny will be defined.
