Announcing the Preliminary Event Listing for Little Wars 2018 and the Opening of Preregistration!

Here is the LITTLE WARS 2018 Preliminary Events Listing  (PEL) in PDF format. In it you will find over 190 events for your enjoyment. A big thank you to all the judges who have already committed to running events this year. We’re pleased to offer a number of tournaments this year, including Bolt Action, Flames of War, L’Art de Guerre, Test of Honor and X-Wing.

Please note we will continue to receive games over the next few weeks. These are the games that made it in before the PEL deadline. If you’re still interested in running an event, the deadline for making it into the Program Book is Feb 23. The final date for submitting events is March 30.

IF YOU ARE A JUDGE AND HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED YOUR EVENT, your time slot and event are confirmed in this listing. If there are any issues, please send your questions or corrections to Corrections and edits are expected to be published on or about February 21, we apologize that they can not be made sooner, however, the Event Manager is currently recovering from surgery and not immediately available. We will be continuing to work on physical layout and table assignments. You should receive a communication sometime in late March with specific information on table location, etc.

IF YOU ARE PREREGISTERING FOR THE CONVENTION, please complete the LITTLE WARS PREREGISTRATION 2018 FORM. Enclose your personal check, cashier’s check or money order, made out to ‘HMGS-MIDWEST.’ You are not preregistered if you don’t include payment. Send your completed form and payment to:


c/o Paul Dayton

PO Box 352

Wayne, IL 60184

We are not accepting emails or electronic preregistrations at this time (although we will be testing out online registration and payment at future events after Little Wars). Important: Preregistration closes March 23, 2018. Save money and preregister now!


You can also preregister for up to six games on the same form. Single Day attendees may preregister for up to three events. Weekend attendees may preregister for up to six events. Each event has been assigned a unique Game Code (first column on the left of the PEL). You will need the codes for the events you wish to preregister on the form. For those wondering about the code, it does have meaning. The first three digits refer to the day. The 4th digit refers to the time slot (1 = morning, 2 = afternoon, 3 = evening). For example, the first listing in the PEL has a code of 1TH301. It means that it is a Thursday (TH) evening (3) event. PLEASE NOTE: We have indicated the maximum number of players for each event; however, preregistration will close for an event at 75% (rounded down) of the maximum number (in order to allow for slots to be available on the first day of the convention). The sooner you preregister, the more likely you will get your desired events.

For those interested in the Bolt Action tournament, here are rules and format: 2018 Little Wars BA Tournament.

For those interested in the Test of Honor tournament, here are the rules and format: 2018 Little Wars ToH Tournament
