The next Joy of Six will take place on Sunday 20th July 2014.

The Joy of Six is an annual wargames show devoted to 6mm wargaming. It offers a refreshing change to any small scale wargamer who wants to see the best that the scale has to offer without being drowned out by the 28mm juggernaut that tends to dominate the hobby and hog the stage at the mainstream shows.

The show has grown out the Baccus Gaming Days and now encompasses the work of a range of 6mm manufacturers and a large range of periods. However it still retains its original aim to showcase all that is best in the small scale.
Our aim is also to provide things to excite the jaded wargaming palate with things to take part in as well as just observe. Yes, the 'eye candy' is vital to our events as the photographs will show, but we strive to put on as many participation games as we can, feature hands-on painting workshops, provide seminars looking at various aspects of the hobby and provide spare tables for people to just play games.

The shows are held at the Workstation, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 2BX.
This is a great venue in the centre of Sheffield, easily accessible by public transport (just five minutes walk from Sheffield Mainline Station and Sheffield bus interchange), and with lots of cheap parking very nearby.

Yes, just 5 days to go before the 6mm wargaming event of the year. For those attending, here is a reasonably accurate floor plan..
As you can see, lots to see and do. We'll also be running three seminars/discussions during the day:

Peter and The Igor - Your chance to find out what makes a wargames company tick! You get to quiz the Odd Couple on just how they see things in wargaming, life and the universe in general. We're looking for the awkward questions, so please let us have some in advance and email them to lindyesco@hotmail.co.uk. Any received will not be revealed until the day, so the rabbit trapped in the headlights expressions you see in the room won't be faked!

Command Horizon - the way ahead.- Dave and John from Wargames Emporium will be on hand to outline their plans for this great SF range and discuss the challenges of taking on such a project.

The Polemos Sunday Grill - A bunch of Polemos rules authors locked in a small room with a group of players, interested parties and critics. A recipe for carnage if ever there was. Even if you don't use the Polemos, it's a fascinating insight into what it takes to write and publish a commercial set of wargames rules. I'll also be hoping to do do a short presentation on our progress with the electronic versions of the rules.
