COW 2021

13th April 2021

As of the date on which this update was written (13th April 2021), Knuston Hall has been in contact regarding COW2021, and baring any changes that may result from an upsurge in COVID-19 infections etc. they are able to accommodate a maximum of 32 attendees.

At present, 35 people have booked places at COW2021 and paid in full. The 32 attendees were selected by the simple expedient of using the date order in which they had paid in full and confirmed their booking. The remaining 3 are being held in reserve so that if any of the 32 is unable to attend, their place will be allocated to one of the reserves.

Except where attendees are a couple or members of the same bubble, all attendees will be allocated single accommodation. Not all the rooms normally used for COW will be in operation to facilitate social distancing at mealtimes.

We hope that things will return to normal by the time that COW2022 takes place. An announcement regarding booking for COW2022 will be made after COW2021 has taken place, by which time we hope that the situation regarding COW2022 will be much clearer.

What is Wargame Developments?

Wargame Developments (WD) is a group of like-minded wargamers who are dedicated to developing wargames. It is a non-commercial organisation, and its aims are:

  • To provide a forum for the exchange of new ideas and concepts.

  • To develop both new and existing methods of recreating military conflicts.

Wargame Developments was founded in 1980, and since then it has pursued its aims in several different ways. These include:

  • Running an annual conference (COW - the Conference Of Wargamers).

  • Publishing a regular journal (The NUGGET) that is sent to all members nine times per year.

  • Putting on participation games at major wargames shows in the UK in order to demonstrate the sort of developments in wargaming that are being undertaken by members of WD.

  • Supporting groups of members who are working together to develop particular ideas and concepts (e.g. Megablitz - a set of operational level rules for twentieth century warfare - and Matrix Games).

It is now possible to pay for membership of Wargame Developments and to attend COW using PayPal.
