Just realised there are Groups on CSW!  I'm based in the north west close to Northwich - sort of in the middle between Chester, Liverpool & Manchester.  Main gaming interest is wargaming - do a lot of solo board wargaming (no players I know of close by) or computer and, increasingly, iPad games (AI and online).  Primary interest is WWII but have started branching out into different periods.

Hi all, If you are not aware I am organising a grognard gaming weekend in Liverpool via BGG. Details are to be found here


I hope some of you can come . I'm hoping a few monsters will be played as well as shorter games

Curretly playing Matrix Games War in the Pacific by email. I also have their Harpoon and Operational Art of War installed.

For board games you could try Second Chance Games up in Liverpool. They do a good service and sell new and used games. just use your fav search engine to search the name.

I have seen Satans little hole in Brighton....tucked away in The Lanes and out of sight...lol.
Redhill might be worth a visit if I venture that way at anytime.
Boardgame Guru is a good supplier, but he is in London, so not really local, but good none the less.

not a games shop in Brighton anymore- only the dark satan that is GW. Horsham has a nice shop, and theres a small shop with some wargames ( mainly euro games and RPG) in Redhill.

There are no game shops in Hastings, I think Brighton is the closest place with a shop, and even then I would imagine it is limited.
No wargame clubs here either, and I don't know anyone else in Hastings area that plays.
I am playing solo.....lol

It's a tough one - I'm down in Plymouth and we don't even have a proper game shop any more.  Meanwhile only Waterstones and HMV sell games, and they tend not to be wargames.  I'll probably end up doing some research, given I don't know what groups operate in the city, if any.  In fact, am confined to poker - as at least poker in the pub has a viable model that attracts new people.

I saw you were in Derby, and that you like The Gamers games. Never played any of theirs yet.

I am on BGG as nemesisuk, but I only use it mainly as a reference point. Did buy a few games off people on there, and it all went through well.

Are you into computer war games, if so , which ones?

I'm near Derby.
