Bounding Fire Blackpool is a new UK ASL event where the main tournament will be played using unpublished scenarios.....
Following last years virtual / VASL tournament due to Covid-19, BFB fully intends to return as a face to face event in 2021. Dates have been booked with our usual host The Headlands Hotel for November and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible later in the year.
The main tournament will run Friday 19th - Sunday 21st, 5 rounds.
The Minis, 2 rounds straight knock out, will run Thursday 18th and throughout the weekend for those unable to participate in the main tourney but who would like some competitive gaming.
Minis can also be run on the Wednesday, 17th, if there are enough early attendees. The Headlands is happy to accept guests from Tuesday 16th onwards for any early birds who have REALLY missed face to face play and want to max out their gaming time. Many of us are looking forward to rolling actual, rather than virtual, dice.
The above assumes that there are no further restrictions imposed by the UK Government on such gatherings.
If you are on this website you will likely already know that ASL has been going strong for over 35 years and remains the premier tactical level World War Two wargame.
