More Battle Play Testing October 17th

Battle Day and Weapons Construction Workshop, October 17th, Fort Collins, CO

There will be another play test activity for the book "Battle Gaming: The New American Sport" on October 17th at Lee Martinez Park in Downtown Fort Collins. Directions are below.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM Weapons construction in the basement of the River Rock Cohousing Community House located adjacent to Lee Martinez Park. (Directions below)
  • 12:30PM - 1:00 PM Lunch and Feedback, I will provide sandwich bar
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Battling. We play test specific scenarios
  • 3:00 PM - free fighting time

I hope that you will come and participate. You can help shape the book that is likely to shape the future of this sport.

What to bring:

Any and all Amtgard/Belegarth/Dagorhir weapons. The system in the book is inclusive to all these weapon technologies. You may also wish to bring armor as we will be doing some play testing with armor.

If you are attending the weapons construction workshop, please consider bringing some supplies. I have many supplies which I will happily donate, but my supply chest is not bottomless. Typical stuff such as foam camping pads, pool noodles, tape, cores (PVC pipe/kite spar/fiberglass rods) and cloth are always useful.

Fort Collins is located about 60 miles from Denver.

  • Take I25 to Exit 269B which is CO-14 also known as Mulberry Street.
  • Follow Mulberry Street approximate 3.5 miles and turn right onto Riverside Ave. This will be the intersection just after you pass the rail road tracks.
  • Riverside Ave will become Jefferson St.
  • Go across where it intersects with College Ave. You will now be on Maple St.
  • Go four blocks and turn right on to N. Sherwood St.
  • Follow N. Sherwood to the end (it ends in the park) and then turn right and go down the hill and park by the ball fields.
  • Walk directly south to a fire lane (gravel) and follow it up hill to the east and you will be at the back of the River Rock Community House. Look for signs.
  • Look forward to seeing you there.

Please note there will be no play testing on October 10th, instead more effort is being put into getting a larger crowd out for October 17th.
