Hello.
As I sent GeekMail the other day, I will visit HKSW meeting on this day to introduce the wargame scene in Hong Kong to Japanese wargamers on "Command Magazine Japan Edition" (I am a writer, not an editor).
I hope to interview those who know well the history of wargames in Hong Kong and to play the games. I have original Japanese edition of "A Most Dangerous Time". And I played "Storm Over Taierzhuang" as KMT last month.

I look forward to seeing you.

The French armed with their spirit "L'attaque a l'outrance"), dug in their hideouts deprived of the artillery guns (removed for the great Allied counter-offensive actions in the previous year 1915). Hot, rain and mud surrounding much of the field around the ancient city Verdun in the summer, no one would expect this war was not meant to be a slaughter.

Dear Members of The Hong Kong Society of Wargamers,

I am delighted to inform you that we shall have a visitor from Japan, Hiroshi Tamura visiting the Society in the coming HKSW meeting on 15/8/2009. Like other boardgamers in the remainder of the World, Hiroshi found our Society in the Boardgamesgeek. By publishing our events in Boardgamesgeek which is cost free, we can let other boardgamers and wargamers know our presence, especially those who are moving to Hong Kong and do not want to miss the Hong Kong wargaming scene.

(A) I have received the following private messages from Hiroshi in July:

Dear Mr. Ho.
I am a Japanese wargamer and writing serial article "Wandering Wargamer Goes Asia" on Command Magazine Japan edition.
So, I hope to visit HKSW meeting to research the wargame scene in Hong Kong and introduce Hong Kong wargamers' past, present and future to Japanese wargamers on CMJ. I also hope to invite other Japanese wargamers to Hong Kong.
In Japan, many companies have summer vacation around 15th August, and these days are suitable for inviting other Japanese wargamers to Hong Kong. But, there is no announcement of meeting on August now.
When is it decided?
Sincerely,
Hiroshi Tamura

(B) I have received the final confirmation of coming to Hong Kong from Hiroshi Tamura in the Boardgamesgeek Forum:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/428564


Hello.
As I sent GeekMail the other day, I will visit HKSW meeting on this day to introduce the wargame scene in Hong Kong to Japanese wargamers on "Command Magazine Japan Edition" (I am a writer, not an editor).
I hope to interview those who know well the history of wargames in Hong Kong and to play the games. I have original Japanese edition of "A Most Dangerous Time". And I played "Storm Over Taierzhuang" as KMT last month.

http://www.geocities.jp/xod2006/sgbattlereport20090726_j.htm...

I look forward to seeing you.

Therefore, should you want to talk with Hiroshi (especially for David White who will move to Japan later), come to this HKSW meeting. We welcome Hiroshi to come to the HKSW to interview us. I think our boardgaming member (Andrejz Cierpicki, Li Tai Wah, Chan Kai Biu, myself, Anthony Lee, Lai Lap Wan, Simon Lai, Henry To, Lawrence Hung, Christopher Chu, Eric Leung ...... I try to present the list in descending order of wargaming experience in Hong Kong) may like to share with Hiroshi on the history of Hong Kong wargaming scene.

Moreover, Hiroshi would like to play "A Most Dangerous Time" with us. I also would like to take the opportunity to foster relationship between the Hong Kong wargamers and the Japanese wargamers to pave the way for possible joint wargaming event to be hosted in Hong Kong for the Asia wargamers/boardgamers.

I shall also take advantage of this opportunity to introduce him to other wargaming groups and wargaming shop in Hong Kong.

With Best Regards,

Lawrence Ho
Member Co-ordinator
Hong Kong Society of Wargamers

We might also have another wargamers who live in Hanoi visiting us at the 15 Aug 2009 meeting.

------------------------------------------------------------------------


Dear Mr Ho!

My name is Kirill Oreshkin, I've been wargaming (board wargames) for more than 10 years. At the moment I live in Hanoi, Vietnam but would be in Hong Kong on August 15. Hope I can attend HKSW meeting? I guess finding Hitec Centre would be simple enough, but how to navigate inside? Would there be any signs? And at what time should I come?

On the "supplies" page of HKSW site there are listed some shops I would certainly try to explore. Can you recommend anything else?

Best regards,
Kirill

Last Sunday, I went to Hong Kong Wargames Club. But, there was under remodeling. So, I could not enter. It may re-open on next week.
Today, I went to Great China Wargame & Book Shop. There is a little wargames (almost books).

"Hokkaido 1995" was sold well and reprinted in Japan. So, getting it is not easy, but is not very hard.

Last February, I visited Ho Chi Minh City on business and I know there is a boardgame cafe having "Twilight Struggle".
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/tropical2512/
But, I don't know the detail of wargame environment in Vietnam and I hope to know.

(2b) 450 AP 15mm DBMM Warring State China (Chin Chinese vs Chao Chinese) (organiser: Cheung Kar Fai) (2 tables)
Kar Fai will bring both armies to the meeting. Hopefully, somebody will bring along the table cloths and the terrain pieces to ease his burden. This game is still open to members participation, especially for those who have the trouble of bringing their own armies to this meeting.
Participants: Cheung Kar Fai, Herman Ng
The game is still open to other members participation.

(3) Boardgame: They Shall Not Pass (organiser: Lawrence Hung) (1 table)
Participants: Lawrence Hung, Rowan Hunter

The Battle of Verdun, one of the most brutal battle in WWI beginning 21 February 1916 until December the winter. The German devised a plan "Fall Gericht" ("The Place of Execution") to bleed the French white without counting the no. of bodies of their own. The French armed with their spirit "L'attaque a l'outrance"), dug in their hideouts deprived of the artillery guns (removed for the great Allied counter-offensive actions in the previous year 1915). Hot, rain and mud surrounding much of the field around the ancient city Verdun in the summer, no one would expect this war was not meant to be a slaughter. By the same designer of "Defiant Russia" fame, William Sariego put foward this small little game for players to recreate this unbrearable war experience to life.

(4) 15mm WW2 Flames of Wars (organiser: Nick Alter) (2 tables)
Participants: George Wellington, Nick Alter
