Way back in 2009 I wrote a post for this Blog about demo tables at shows and in particular the lack of information for visitors and sometimes the lack of interaction between exhibitors and show attendees. Since then I have had the pleasure of contributing to three demo games in conjunction with Posties Rejects at the Broadside show (in 2012 and 2013 and again in 2014). Looking back at that article I'm glad to say that the quality of information and interaction at shows seems to have improved immensely. However, I thought it a subject worthy of revisiting and the latest episode of The Quarantined Wargamer looks back at that earlier article and explains what sort of information I like to see accompanying a demo game at shows.
Fortunately, things seem to be improving year on year as more clubs and groups respond to the needs of their audience. But what do you like to see accompany a demo table? I've given you my list, but what sort of information do you look for when you visit a well laid out demo game at a show?

And of course, I'd like to hear what you think so please leave your comments either here or on my youtube channel. Next week I'm asking the question, is it time we ditched the army list? Until then, stay safe and keep rolling high!
