We wish to announce a "Wargaming Weekend" (well in fact two)
Andy has been running board wargaming weekends for the last 30? years, formally and formerly as part of the European Historical Board Wargaming Society; lately with what we regards as friends. Second Chance Games has a large enough customer base that we thought we would be able to organise a board wargaming weekend and open it up to our customer base. As our Autumn one is established with our friends it seemed prudent to offer a Spring event allowing both our customers and friends the flexibility to pick and choose when to join us for some social gaming. We are rooted in the board wargaming industry and this is one way we can give back to the community.
Dear Second Chance Games customers,
We have successfully switched web hosting service provider! Our new server has significantly more resources and a much faster backbone Internet connection. Everything has been going well since the upgrade and we are continuing to make changes to the site to improve performance and user experience.
Thank you all for your feedback, it's been so helpful!
Pete the SCG Webmaster
Should you need a last minute gift follow the link below to Decision Games - Mini Series which was recently restocked.
The Mini Game Series provides a variety of introductory games that are designed to be played in about an hour. The eras covered are: 19th century, Ancient, WWII and Modern. Each game is an 11 x 17 inch map sheet, 40 counters and a rules sheet. The mini game series takes only minutes to learn and once one game is played, players can immediately play other scenarios with the same standard rules. Some games come with cards that drive the action with various commands and events.
They are low priced and compact which makes them ideal for taking away on holidays etc.
We can also offer magazine subscriptions to the following titles:
Strategy and Tactics: Strategy & Tactics Magazine
World at War: World At War Magazine
Modern War: Modern War Magazine
Paper Wars: Paper Wars Magazine (last items within Compass)
Should you wish to subscribe to any of these titles through ourselves we can securely store payment details and send the items out to you as we receive them. For security reasons please contact us via phone to set things up.
Dear all Second Chance Games website users,
This evening many of you will have received an email from us telling you that a payment problem has occurred.
This is not something to worry about, we have not been hacked, this is not an attack of SPAM email!
The issue came about from an almost farcical series of events that led to almost all users being accidentally emailed with this error instead of being a single internal email sent to just the admin team. The flood of email was caused when a payment was declined by PayPal for a single user but the message received by our site from PayPal caused a server hiccup which inadvertently emailed everyone instead. We will be sending out an email to our users soon to apologise for this inconvenience and explain the situation as is done so here.
I'm really sorry this happened, it can cause quite a bit of worry when you get emails like this in your inbox. Please know that the site is safe, secure and while the emails being sent are an annoyance they are little more than just an annoyance.
