Host or Run Our Games
We've been asked a number of times about the possibility of hosting or buying Pennine Megagames. by individuals and groups. This can often be arranged and is usually done after discussions with the game designer, who may travel to put the game on, or make the resources available electronically, for a fee.
The simplest thing to do is to have a look at our game archive and decide which game would suit you best then drop us a line. We can then put you in touch with the designer to discuss further.
Thinking About Acting as Control?
We don't charge our control team for their help in putting games on, but the game runner is responsible for allocating these limited roles and cannot guarantee one for everyone interested. We do ask that control members attend at least one playtest or briefing for the game if at all possible, to help ensure the game runs smoothly.
If you'd like to help out as Control just speak to us at a game or get in touch.
