      Amtgard Battlegames

      (There are on average 15-30 individuals that attend weekly Amtgard battlegames.) What is Amtgard? - Amtgard is a swords and sorcery styled medieval combat, culture, and sciences organization. Amtgard was founded in El Paso, Texas in 1983 and has since spread throughout North America and the rest of the world. With over ten thousand active members representing a diverse swath of humanity it’s safe to say there is something for everybody in Amtgard. Whether you’re a teenager in high school or an established adult you will be able to find an inviting peer group that is excited to welcome you to the game. Battlegames - Battlegames are competitive matches between two or more teams using a variety of different possible mechanics. Victory is determined by any number of pre-set conditions. The variety and combinations of possible games are limited only by the imagination. Fighting Gear - Weapons and shields are crafted with foam and cloth so that no armor is required. We always have gear that you can borrow for free. If you want to bring your own fighting gear then feel free to do so but it will need to be inspected by the Champion. Dressing Up - Wearing garb is encouraged if you have it but nobody will give you any weird looks or a hard time if you don’t. Cost - First time is free and $5 a week until summer, battlegames are free during the summer because we play in fields and forests. Classes - Playing a class in a Battlegame is a chance to combine physical abilities with tactical and strategic acumen to achieve victory. Classes in Amtgard are designed so that each one brings a unique and valuable set of skills to the field which can be used as part of a team. Available classes - Warrior, Monk, Barbarian, Assassian, Scout, Archer, Wizard, Druid, Bard, Healer. Physical Exercise - Just like any other sport, Amtgard is a fun way to wind yourself and score some sore muscles for the next day. Crafting - Most of the combat gear and garb that we use is hand crafted, for this reason crafting is a very important aspect of Amtgard and is even required to get into office. If you don’t have experience crafting then worry not. We host crafting meetups every month.(You may also purchase gear from other players if you don't wish to craft) Government - Amtgard is more than just a game; it’s also an extensive organization spread across the globe. Over the more than 30 years since its inception Amtgard has evolved a very stable representative government to help administer the various activities needed to keep everything running smoothly. Community - For many at Amtgard the people here are like a second family and it’s always growing. You can also find us at the Alaska State Fair, The 3 Barons Renaissance Fair, and Senshicon. We host massive weekend long camping events every year filled with activities such as; fighting tournaments, crafting competitions, castle sieges, mazes, quests, and Battlegames.
