(WAYNE, NJ) -- Only a few spots remain for Historical Miniature Gaming Day at Dey Mansion on Saturday, September 24. Join HMGS Next Gen Inc. for a Game Day Event, specifically focused on the Battle of Freeman’s Farm which took place in 1777. Gamers will play with hand-painted miniature figures representing the British and Continental Army on a tabletop decorated with terrain to represent the battlefield. The event begins at 10:00am.
This miniature wargame will be played with dice, tape measurers, and other tools to recreate the difficulties of command in the American Revolution. After the game, players will learn about the real Battle of Freeman’s farm and discuss the challenges they faced leading their armies of miniatures.
