EAST YORKSHIRE


Humberside Wargames Society

The Humberside Wargames Society has been in existence in various forms since the early 1970ís. The Society's members are mostly interested in historical miniatures games For the last two years we have had our own secure premises in the centre of Hull, which are available for membersí use at any time of any day of the year, though I donít think anyone goes in on Christmas Day.

We have rooms on two floors, each with one large games room capable of taking up to six large tables along with several store rooms. The second floor games room is non-smoking and is the regular haunt of naval games, 25mm ancients (DBM and 6th/7th edition WRG), 25mm renaissance (DBR or WRG 2nd Edition), Hordes of the Things in 6mm, various card games (particularly Magic: The Gathering), Warhammer and AD&D role-playing. 15mm scale DBA, DBM and DBR games are usually to be found on the third floor, along with 1/300th scale WW2 and Modern miniatures games.

The majority of players use the club on Saturdays, though various groups of gamers use the club at others times. Tables are available on a first come first served basis. Role-players go in on Sundays and Wednesday evenings at the moment. New members are always welcome.

MERSEYSIDE


Liverpool Wargames Association

The LWA meets on Sunday, Thursday and Saturday at our premises in central Liverpool. We play tabletop games in all main periods, and role playing games. If there's some period you are into which we don't currently play, it's likely that you can interest someone. This is almost guaranteed if you have the figures and easily understood rules.

As far as I am aware, the LWA is the only club offering regular split-table games. The two sides play on identical tables in two separate rooms with a referee placing enemy figures as sighted. The referee being the only person to see both tables means that true hidden movement is possible, adding an extra dimension to games.
