Activities

Looking for something to do with the family on the long weekend? Well drop in to MOAB and there are lots of things to keep you occupied whether you are a seasoned gamer or new to the hobby and games and want to check it all out.

There is additional parking behind the main building on the lower soccer fields. There will be signs indicating where to park.

General entry to MOAB is FREE, although tournament play involves a fee.

First up, we will keep you fed and watered at the fully licensed canteen – awesome food and drink to buy at low prices.

If shopping is your thing (or you have stuff to get rid of) then visit the Bring and Buy or any of the many Traders we have all in one convenient location.

They include these Participation Games:-

The Petit Race for Africa (Expand for more information)

    The Petit Race for Africa

    Somehow overlooked by both explorers and surveyors alike during the great partition of darkest Africa, lays an insignificant parcel of unclaimed land, ignored until recently by the European powers. Newly discovered and defined by the eccentric French explorer, Jean-Baptiste de Pain-Perdue, who announced his findings openly to the world and then promptly disappeared, the discovery of this insignificant parcel of land has spurred a second, albeit petit, race for Africa by those nations who covet it. The doctrine of the Berlin Conference still holds true although – cultured society demands that there are rules to be followed when “annexing” an innocent’s land!

    But the insignificant parcel of land is far from uninhabited. The land is home to native tribes, both noble and warlike, who have witnessed their unspoilt lands ravaged by nefarious slave traders. These sellers of men have taken many slaves, the daughter of the head chieftain amongst them, their miserable trade being plied from a slaver tembe that sits festering like a cancerous wound by the river. What will happen should the White Man arrive?

    The scene is set, the protagonists introduced - who will be victorious in this, The Petit Race for Africa?

    This event will be run on both Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th of October.

    Play as the dastardly Belgians, the stiff upper lipped British, the steadfast French, the imperialistic Germans, the devious Zanzibar Slavers or their crafty Baluchi allies, the noble and savage Watumbi, or the hashish addled Ruga-Ruga, in this large 8 player participation game, expected to last all afternoon.

    Make sure to be early at the venue, as we intend to start at 12 o'clock.

    Places are strictly limited and registration is essential and FREE. Get in early to secure your place and avoid disappointment.

A Song of Ice & Fire (Expand for more information)

    A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game

    A Song of Ice & Fire Miniatures Game is a competitive tabletop miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne.

    Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit's capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fuelled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.
