    Hello,
    I am a lapsed wargamer who has recently moved to Stratford and am looking for a club to get me back into the hobby. Is it OK if I come along on 20 February?

    Regards

      Hello there. Of course you can come along on the 20th. Not sure what games are on, but no doubt there will be something to whet the appetite. What games are you interested in? If you register on the forum you’ll see what stuff is currently making it to the tabletop.

      Cheers

      Tom

      Hi Lawrence
      Sorry for not responding sooner, we mostly monitor the forum rather than this page. We do play most of those and many more so come visit us at the club and register on the forum.
      Cheers
      Andy

    Hi, Is this club still active as interested – mid 40s, getting back into games following a 30 year gap, just starting Kings of War, Dreadball and EPIC Cardgame (recent Kickstarter)

      Yes (just a little distracted of late!)

      Dreadball, KoW are all live games for us at the moment, along with a host of other treats to tempt you.

      If you can make a Monday night, we’d be happy to welcome you. Sign up for the forum to meet and greet the members and arrange games.

    Hi, I’m moving to Kineton this month and feel like it’s time to start war gaming. I have always wanted to get into it but never had the chance. Since this club is pretty close I’m keen to test the waters if that’s ok. Just wanted some information if that’s ok. Would I need anything to come along? What’s the age range? Things like that. Sorry to be a pain and thanks for any info you can give me. I’m hoping to come along sometime in February if that’s ok.

    Thanks and I look forward to start gaming.

    Hello, anyone,

    Full time resident of a tiny village over the hill from Kineton, and hoping to get back into the swing of things. At Uni, I was part of a gaming society where I was first introduced into the delightfully ordered anarchy of Role-Playing Games. I’ve played in campaigns of Star Wars, Vampire World of Darkness, Dark Heresy (albeit playing a Rogue Trader-type character) Dungeons and Dragons, and a steampunk fantasy game I can’t quite recall the name of. All this was experienced in a three-year span, but I graduated last year and have been cut off from the tabletop world ever since.

    Sorry if this is incredibly short notice- I only found out about this little club today -but would it be kosher if I dropped by tomorrow? No need to shoehorn me into any games, I’d just be very interested to see what’s what. With any luck, I could slot myself back into the gaming fray.

    With thanks,

    Asher

    Hi,
    Do you have anyone in the club who plays Force on Force in 20 mm, modern African conflicts? I’m looking to get back into gaming.

    Thanks

      We’ve had one game of Force on Force in 15mm – Vietnam. I have both VC and US so could go for that again. I know another member (Paul) was looking at moderns but not sure on scale or rules.

      I’ve been looking at Tomorrow’s War for sci fi and considering some projects.

      Quite a few club members have 15mm African stuff for the Peter Pig AK47 rules.

    Hi,
    I called in Monday and was made very welcome, thanks. How do you organise an opponent for a game?
