My newest original game is coming back for a second run in Reading on 25th April. Sugar and Sedition is set during the Cuban revolution, exploring the interesting dynamics and challenges of this conflict. The game is operational, but there is a very strong political el...

I am pleased to announce a new megagame design coming to Bristol on the 11th April. Bad Moon Rising is set in an alternative history 1970s, where the USA and the USSR are rapidly developing bases on the moon in a duel for supremacy. Can they handle the political, logis...

A little over four years ago today, on the 10th October 2015, in Swindon Village Hall in Cheltenham, I achieved two major megagame "firsts". I simultaneously attended my first megagame and ran my first megagame. The game was, unsurprisingly, 'Watch The Skies!' (back th...

It's 1am. I should be studying for finals, but instead I'm hiding in a bush in the campus quad, setting up a hidden video-camera with my best friend. I keep my head on a swivel for angry cultists as I fumble with the device's settings. My hands tremble. Poison is turni...

At the beginning of March I ran 'Watch The Skies: Second Sight' in Cardiff - the first megagame run in Cardiff in the last few years. I was really pleased with how it turned out, and it was great to see so many local players coming along to try out megagames for the fi...
