Safe House: 24 Hour All Things Zombie Tabletop Zombie Wargames Marathon

Safe House - You have one right?

Welcome to the first annual Safe House event.

Safe House... will you survive the night?
Safe House is an Edinburgh based 24 hour tabletop zombie wargames marathon, hosted by Simon Hunter from Project Zeke Miniatures and James Brown from Hive City Terrain, to raise money for The Sick Kids Friends Foundation

The first Safe House event will run from the 5th to the 6th of July 2014, from midday to midday.

Players taking part will be canvassing for sponsorship for their participation in the event using using the JustGiving donations platform. For those of you who don't know, donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

Check out and donate at this year's Safe House Just Giving Team Page.

 Safe House participants will not only embark on a constantly changing campaign through an ever expanding story of zombie survival using Two Hour Wargames' All Things Zombie: Final Fade Out and its accompanying supplements. And they will be doing so in suitably post apocalyptic surroundings and with all the trappings that go with it: isolation, barricades, canned food, the rapidly deteriorating aroma... you get the idea.

The event will be held in an "abandoned" office block (don't worry, it's safe and we have permission), appropriately furnished for the end of days.

Players will only be allowed minimal breaks (nature can't be ignored after all) and will be spending the rest of their time rolling dice, engaged in the campaign and trying to stay awake.

Safe House is the first event of its ilk in Edinburgh and with your support hopefully we can make it a resounding success. Everything going to plan, we hope to host Safe House events each year in support of The Sick Kids Hospital, a cause close to all of our hearts.
