A very warm thank you to all who took part - for anyone not on social the final figures were;

Yorkists 5
Lancastrians 7
1 Draw

We had 13 games in 9 different countries overall. It was a mixed picture in terms of Covid-19 restrictions - ok in UK/Aus/NZ, for example, and tricky for Canada, who held their game outdoors.

Myself, Gareth and Paul certainly found #WorldWarRoses a welcome distraction as the pandemic uncertainty continues, and we hope others did too.

There has already been enthusiasm for a sequel event next year - perhaps with even greater levels of co-ordination and in-person gaming where possible. We'll keep all updated with plans.

Thanks again to everyone who either hosted a game, painted, took part in the vignette competition, or just showed us some encouragement and enthusiasm.

Next year I think I might just join in the fun. TBH, the thing that out me off this year was well, the obvious really; not being able to play games in person.

Thanks for setting things up - very enjoyable and since I am presently painting WotR … a boost to my motivation.

Certainly worth doing again next year. And thank you for running it; I know it's a heck of a job. :)

From the lack of a reply, I take it we aren't doing a WWotR this year, then.  :(

I just started building my WOTR forces. I doubt I'll be finished in time, but I am interested in continuing the tradition!
