Hi, I'm Paul, and welcome to The Asylum.
So, as you might have guessed, tonight we're talking ChillCon '17. For those who aren't aware of ChillCon, it's Chilling Wargamers' and Asylum Wargaming's very own wargaming show. It debuts on Saturday 27th May, 2017, at Ecclesfield School in Sheffield (full address below), and it's brought to you in association with S.L.A. Industries: CS1 and Word Forge Games.

Let me tell you, the place is going to be packed. Not only do we have demonstration and participation games including S.L.A Industries: CS1, Guild Ball, Halo Ground Command, Shattered Void, Scud Alley, AvP and more, but we're also hosting two awesome Kings of War and Bolt Action tournaments!
