Within the game, Amtgard is based in medieval elements from before 1650 (pre-gunpowder weapons).
In order play the game, you need to have some spare weekend time.  Members of Amtgard meet on Saturdays and Sundays in parks around the Metroplex.  The day of play depends on the park.  Members typically begin gathering at a park between 1 and 2 p.m.  For a first visit, arriving closer to 3 p.m. ensures enough players in attendance to get a "fuller feel" for the nature of game without too much waiting around.
Because Amtgardians often travel to periodic gatherings, it is recommended that new players attempt to contact an active park member before attending for the first time.  At the very least check out the event schedule/calendar beforehand.
Some Amtgardians also gather during the week to practice their fighting skills.
