Program Description

Event Details

The Battle of the Bulge and the Siege of Bastogne, December 1944.

Come play a recreation of the famous World War II battle between the Germans and the American Airborne 101st Division using miniature models and figures of all the tanks and soldiers. The Germans try to overwhelm the surrounded Americans, who are low in supplies, ammunition, and even winter clothing. When asked to surrender, the reply was simply, "Nuts". Lots of fun, and also learn a bit of history.

Please pre-register. Games are facilitated by experts from HMGS Next Gen, Inc. who have great experience in running games that are fun and challenging for players. Presented by the Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, Next Gen.
