Auction House

The Auction House

We are currently working on a new event for MOAB 2019, which we’ll call “The Auction House”. This will enable us to provide a way to sell more expensive or delicate items and allow sellers the opportunity to maximise their return for their items.

Sellers will complete an online form and upload auction item details including a reserve price and sign a declaration clause. Registration as a buyer to bid in the auction will be done on the day of the auction.

On receipt of the Seller Auction List we will process the information and advertise the items for auction on our website prior to MOAB. This will include the description of the item and a photo if provided.

At MOAB the items will be placed on display in a supervised area away from the general Bring’n’Buy action. Access to the area will be limited and only then to registered bidders, item owners and staff.

We’ll post more as we work out the fine details.

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.

Participation Games

To keep you busy at other times (and between games for those playing in an event) there are many Participation Games you can join in with.

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.

6mm Napoleonic Gaming (Expand for more information)


    6mm Napoleonic Gaming – Demo Game – Blücher

    Blücher is a tabletop game of great battles in the Napoleonic Wars by Sam Mustafa. Players takes the role of a general commanding a large army in a famous or fictional encounter. Units represent large forces such as brigades of infantry or cavalry and concentrations of massed artillery.
    Blücher is fast-paced and can be played at various scales – at MOAB, the game will be demonstrated in 6mm scale only. Why this scale? Simply, no other scale gives the same sense of the vastness and size of Napoleonic era battle, and you’ll be amazed at the level of detail in the painting that can be achieved at 6mm.
    The game at 6mm scale is affordable, easy to paint and assemble – getting you onto the table quicker. The Blücher rules are straightforward and easy to learn, but with some twists and nuances that make for a great level of complexity that doesn’t overwhelm the gaming experience. The Scharnhorst Campaign System is an advanced game feature designed into the game introduces a great dimension which positions the troops for the coming battle.

    Come and have a go.
