Perusing the Salute guide in the current MW I've already mentioned the 190 traders- now to the games- there are 86 listed.
Of those some 40 are loosely historical. with a good number of periods represented including 2 battles of Hastings .... and games in various scales though 15mm is a bit under represented out side WW2 and modern.
Again we have the minor phenomenon of many of the sci-fant games being run by companies rather than clubs.
I think this speaks rather to the limited nature of sci-fant gaming than anything else as - from the list only the Warlords themselves seem to have got out of the samey-gamey mould with their sci- fant games- not unusual for them at all. They do put the effort in .
Perusing further we find a game basedon Wacky Races- the 1970s cartoon- well late 60s when I watched it. - How is that wargaming? Now don't misunderstand it has a place at Salute which has not been a WARGAMES show for a good few years but rather a gaming event with some wargames in it.
Why does this bother me I hear you ask?
Well it doesn't- except that I won't get to see any of the games as I'll be working.
