COW 2022

15th August 2021

The COW2022 booking system is now live on the Conference of Wargamers page of this website. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions that are still in place, we are only able to take 32 confirmed bookings at present, and these will be allocated on a first come, first booked basis.

Once the limit of 32 bookings has been reached, any excess bookings will be placed on a reserve list in the hope that by July 2022 Knuston Hall will be able to accommodate more than the current attendee limit.

The cost of attending COW2022 will be 300.00, and we are currently asking for a 25.00 deposit as this will be the cost of subscribing to Wargame Developments for 2022-2023.

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.
