Minigeddon

London's community is a driving force behind Minigeddon, a fun, fast and furious way to play or learn Epic Armageddon by fighting scaled down battles. Since its creation in 2011 it has seen a steady increase in popularity around the world and spawned the annual tournament Battle of the Thames, held every November in London.
