June's theme is The War of 1812, marking the 200th anniversary of the start of the "war which both sides won".
June 18th, 2012 marks the bicentennial of the commencement of hostilities with President Madison's declaration of war.
Candidate games include: "1812: The Invasion of Canada", "The War of 1812", "For Honour and Glory: War of 1812 Land and Sea Battles", "S&T#207: War of 1812", "A Mere Matter of Marching" and many others.
You need not play a game related to the theme; the idea behind the theme is to get people to play games or explore eras or systems that they might not otherwise.
Remember to pre-arrange your games and opponents on our message board in this thread:
Newcomers are always welcome. You don't need to bring a game if you don't have one; other members usually bring far more than are necessary.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As has been the case for the past few months, we will playing in the lower hall of the church, not in the parlours. This is the same location we have played in at the April and May meet-ups.
We will be playing in the lower hall of Forest Hill United Church, located at 2 Wembley Road, just north of Eglinton on Bathurst Street. Look for paper signs posted on the doors to guide you to the room. When you approach from the parking lot, go to the doors on your left, not the main doors into the sanctuary.
Some parking is available in the streets nearby the church and you may also park in the lot if there are spaces available - many spaces clear up right around 11 AM. To get to the church by TTC, take the #32 bus east (if coming from Eglinton West station on the University line) or the same bus going west (if coming from Eglinton station on the Yonge line). Both buses run frequently. Get off at Bathurst and walk one (short) block north on the west side of Bathurst.
There is no admission fee, but a small donation to the church's property committee is appreciated.
