Home of Wargamers 2015 Be part of it!

Monday, May 18, 2015

This year’s Home of Wargamers (#HoW15) is approaching.

The dates are now officially fixed for June 23rd to June 25th and the event is being held at Vittorio Veneto, CastelBrando, a town full of heritage and history between Venezia and Treviso.

The first and most important news is that this year’s event will be solely open to our development partners: we have decided to organize a developer’s conference, rather than a press conference, so that we could really focus on the future of wargaming and strategy gaming.

We will have keynote speeches to talk about game engines, business cases, game play issues, sales channels, price positioning and many other topics to create a true debate about where the wargaming and strategy gaming markets are going, and what we should all do to drive change.

You, as players, are all invited and you will have a chance to take part to the event through live streams, ask anything on Twitter and through the forums. So stay tuned and watch out for further information!
