BOUNDING FIRST FIRE is a new UK ASL being run by Martin Mayers and Simon Stanforth hat will take the place of INTENSIVE FIRE in 2018.

The main tournament, sponsored by Bounding Fire Publications, will run through Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and will take the form of blind scenarios. We'll notify in advance of equipment which will be required and of which rule sets people will need to bull up on. But most/all will be relatively straightforward. There will be no beach landings, at night, with naval artillery support, and Japanese defenders in cave complexes. We'll confirm full tournament rules and structure nearer to the time.
The minis tournament, sponsored by BattleSchool Dice will run throughout the Thursday. We'll also run similar minis throughout the weekend for later arrivals who cannot make the main tournament but would like a structured tournament setting.
There'll be plenty of opportunities for friendly play for those who would prefer it.
There'll also be Starter Kit mentoring sessions/refereeing for anyone interested in attending who is relatively new to the game (we've had some interest in this).
For more information, visit their website at Bounding First Fire or contact the organisers by email at
