Bring and Buy / Demo Games at Firestorm Games – 11th May 2019

Firestorm Games will be holding their next Bring and Buy sale and Demo day on Saturday 11th May 2019. This will take place at the South Wales Gaming Centre in Cardiff As well as the usual Bring and Buy goodness the demo games we are looking to offer are: TT Combat: Carnavale Rumbleslam 4Ground: World War Zero – 18th Century Warfare Great Escape Games Seven Days to the Rhine In addition Trolltrader will be looking at the stalls/anybody really with stuff etc with an eye to bulk purchasing, although this will probably mainly be Games Workshop/FFG type items though. Troll Trader will also be trading MtG singles on the day. They are also hoping to run an Ice Cool regional that day as well but are awaiting confirmation from Asmodee (it’s a fun subbuteo-esque game involving Penguins, what’s not to like). 4Ground and Great Escape Games are still to confirm attendance, but have both expressed solid interest. Final details will be confirmed via an event on the Firestorm Games Facebook page this week.
