Welcome to Tyneside Wargames Club
The Tyneside Wargames Club has been meeting regularly most Saturdays during the year since 1982. The main thrust of our gaming is historical although we do on occasion delve into Sci-fi, fantasy and boardgaming. All periods are played in various scales from ancient to modern, including naval and aerial combat (but obviously not ancient aerial combat!)
Various rule systems are employed, so the chances are we will have something to fit the bill, including - for ancient, medieval and renaissance buffs - the use of the Great Captain ruleset, probably the most realistic and fun rule set in the world!
The Club has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with no hierarchy (other than the bloke who collects the subs) and was voted by its members 'Best Wargames Club 2009'
The venue, which is the Church Hall of St James United Reformed Church, has a handy location, being situated in the centre of Newcastle on Northumberland Road. Proceedings start around 10.30am on Saturdays mornings and by about noon the blood is usually flowing freely!
So if you're in the area and interested, why not pop in and have a look-see? We'll be glad to meet and chat. Or have a browse round our website and blog to see what we get up to.
