The Seven Years War (1756-63) was actually the most bloody and world-wide war in the Eighteenth Century, many have called it The First World War due to being fought in Europe, North America, Caribbean, India and the trade routes of the world. It was a bloody and so exhausting war for all the major powers, that it needed to end up with a workable Peace Treaty!

Anerley Town Hall

Game fee is £30.00

Super-heroes, super-villains and vigilantes. Setting the rules for super-powers in a context of vigilante crime fighting in New York. The government categorised anyone with power as Afflicted Persons (AP). Various government agencies used AP agents (allegedly) for secret operations. The government has set up a senatorial investigation committee into the AP issue to establish a way forward for the treatment of AP. This is one half of the game: a large conference to discuss the issues and figure out a way forward. The other half of the game is vigilante crime fighting in New York City. This features an operational game of fighting crime and trying to thwart the bosses behind it. This generates input into the conference as AP either protect or destroy the city.

Anerley Town Hall

Game fee is £30.00

The megagame of resistance to the Norman Conquest - set in the aftermath of the Battle of Hastings. The Normans and their allies seek the crown and the rich lands of England. The Anglo-Saxons would like to preserve their kingdom and their family holdings. Other neighbours (Celts, Vikings and Franks in particular) may take the opportunity to get involved, or to use the time to settle their own internal affairs.

Do you need experience to play a Megagame?

Absolutely none, other than a willingness to enjoy yourself with 50+ scheming people in a very large room while confronting the most pressing matters of politics or war.

Is there a minimum age to attend a Megagame?

There is, the age limit to participate in a Megagame is 16 or over, but anyone younger can come so long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

How do I sign up for a Megagame?

If you have been to one of our Megagames before then you will already be on our system, just login to this site and book on the game you are interested in. After booking and payment of the game fee, you can add any role preference. If you haven't been to one of our Megagames before you will need to register on this site in order to be book into a game.

Can I sign up others onto a Megagame, can I book/buy multiple places?

No. This site requires you to register and login before booking, so you can only book for yourself.

Do I need to get a whole team together to play?

No, absolutely not. You don't have to field a full team to take part . We have many individuals sign onto a game. If people already know they want to play on the same team as their friends, then please use the "Note" field to tell us so. It is best to nominate one person as team co-ordinator and then enter a Note with their name e.g. team John Smith We will then take account of that when casting is done (about a month before the game).

How many can be in a team?

It depends on the individual Megagame and can vary widely Usually team sizes are between 3 and 6 people.

How are roles assigned/teams selected, when will I find out what role I have been cast?

Because of the nature of Megagames we do not 'sell tickets' but carefully allocate individuals into roles, roles which influence the structure and direction of the game. We allocate people into teams and roles about a month before the game, after which we will email you to let you know and publish a role list on the game web page. Up until then we book people onto a Megagame up to the numbers it can cater for and make a note of any team or role preference, which we will use to help us with the casting.

We try to meet everyone's role and team preferences (if stated) and usually do, but obviously no guarantees can be made. Usually we give people the roles they ask for, or something close to it. This is why we often ask you to express several role preferences.

What's the chance of getting on a game if I go on the waiting list?

Our experience shows that there is a better than 50% chance of getting onto a full game. Most people sign onto a Megagame well in advance and sometimes their availability changes nearer the time of the game and so they cancel their place on a game. The priority for getting a place from the waiting list s based on first-come first served basis and it is therefore well worth adding your name too.

How do I pay? Can I pay for someone else?

When you book for a game on this website, you are directed to a PayPal link to pay the game fee. Once the game fee is paid, then you will be taken back to this Megagame Makers site where your booking will show as "paid". Payment confirms the booking, so if you are interrupted while on PayPal, your booking will show up with a payment link and, after a decent interval, it is likely to be cancelled (although you can, of course, easily book again). It is not, unfortunately, possible to pay for others but if that is a necessity, then please email admin@MegagameMakers.uk and we will try to help.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you cannot make the game and let us know up to two weeks before the event then we can issue you a 50% refund (minus any bank fees incurred). Within two weeks of the event , we do not offer a refund. Please see our Cancellation Policy for further details.

What will I do for food?

We strongly advise you to bring a lunch. There are usually food outlets at, or near, the venues we use, but given the pace of the game we don't advise disappearing for a long lunch or you might find that you miss something vital.

Do I have to dress up / is it ok if I bring a costume to get in character?

Role playing is encouraged, as is dressing if you enjoy it, although it is certainly not obligatory. We want everyone to feel comfortable being in the game whether they have dressed up or not. Please be aware of sensibilities and use common sense when choosing a costume. It is not acceptable to come in Nazi regalia, for example.

What do I do if I still have questions?

You are always welcome to email us at admin@MegagameMakers.uk . You are also welcome to join the Megagame Makers Facebook group which is very active, friendly and helpful. You will find easy links on the footer of the pages of this website.
