This event is pending.

On June 6th, 2019 shortly after midnight...75 years ago, the British made an assault on the Pegasus Bridge. On June 6th thru the 10th, 2019...join in a WORLD WIDE experience with player from all over the world playing a Pegasus Bridge/D-day game! This could include AAM, FoW, Memoir 44, Battle Tech etc.

participants to be announced just under 2 years from now!

Plan A- June 9th 2018 is a Saturday. We'll attempt to gather a group of names and locations where everyone can play a Pegasus Bridge/D-day game. We'll work out some details, and attempt to increase the players for 2019. I'll check with my local gaming club to become "D-day Central", and to have a dedicated room where everyone is playing a Pegasus Bridge/D-day game. The goal for 2018 is to acquire a list of locations, and total number of players. I think we can get at least 400 people/ 10 countries playing. There will be some time zone issues as well. More to follow!

other ideas will be to have a 80% bunker in the room, and a Live Facebook stream at Ground zero (local gaming store)

I'm hoping to get this off the ground. I will submit reservations for the room, and give them the plans when I have something worked out.

We're set! Starting the morning of June 9th, 2018...we'll attempt to have 400 people playing D-day /Pegasus Bridge related games. We should have people from the UK, Spain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and 15 states in the US playing that day! A little ways off, but we should be able to pull this off! I'll have access to a gaming room near-by, and I hope to stream live some of the activities!!! I'm counting on IA, AZ, WA, FL, OR, TX, CA, MS, TN, and MO to play for this event.
