This innovative skirmish game has forces of 5-20 models, led by Samurai, battle to decide the fate of a fracturing Japan. Using a combination of Dice, Cards and randomised activation, this game will be a real winner, not to mention the models are just simply glorious!

Demo games will run throughout the day from 11am.


Arkham Horror LCG

Arkham Horror takes you to the Lovecraftian world of the Cuthulu Mythos, where reality bends, sanity breaks and horror is around every turn. This fantastic game is part RPG, part Board Game, part deck builder! Our very own David will be running 4 plucky adventurers at a time through a scenario. Your decks will be pre-built, all you need to do is sit down, pick a character and see if you can survive!

 Running in 90 minute slots from 10am.


Call of Cthulhu RPG

Call of Cthulhu is a tabletop roleplaying game based upon the worlds of H. P. Lovecraft. It is a game of secrets, mysteries, and horror. Playing the role of steadfast investigators, you travel to strange and dangerous places, uncover foul plots, and stand against the terrors of the Cthulhu Mythos! You encounter sanity-blasting entities, monsters, and insane cultists. Within strange and forgotten tomes of lore you discover revelations that man was not meant to know. You and your companions may very well decide the fate of the world! Patrick Boughton has kindly agreed to run a special introductory adventure for up to five players on our opening day!


The game will start at 1pm and will run for around 3-4 hours. Pre-created characters will be provided. PRE-BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. Please email op@chaoscards.co.uk to reserve your space!


Dungeons & Dragons

This is a drop-in game, where players pick up a pre-generated character and play for however long they want. Maximum number of players at anyone time is 5.

Come along and try the latest version of the classic that began it all!

Gorechosen

Games Workshop's Gorechosen is a game of brutal, fast-paced arena combat for 2-4 players.

Fight every man for himself, or team up against the strongest player to decide who is the most favoured of Khorne – lots of variations and tweaks to the bloodthirsty core game rules are included.
