MEN, women and children headed into battle at a special event that saw them reaching not for their swords and shields but their miniature figurines and dice.
Bosses at Specialist gaming store Spirit Games, in High Street, organised the International Tabletop Day, which saw dozens of people, of all ages, take part.
The event ran for 14 hours on Saturday and took place in three locations - the store, Burton Library and the Burton Bridge Inn.
A spokesman for the event said: “We concentrated on board and card games to make the best use of space to fit in as many players as possible.”
There was a casual tournament running all day at the library, with models available to be borrowed by newcomers.

A similar beer and pretzel event will be taking place on April 17 and 18 at Burton Town Hall.
The event has been held for the past 25 years.
