The Phoenix Games club is moving into new premises. Previously we were busting at the seams in the Polish Club on Glenfarg St, but a switch to Partick Burgh Hall* means we have space and can therefore look to recruit.

Our games nights are 1830-2230 on Tuesdays.

Lots of wargamers but also some catholic+ boardgamers. We run Wappinshaw if you've been to that annual games show.

Fees for six months would be £50/10, but we'd have no expectation that you'd pay until trying out a few nights. This venue isn't licensed, but there are an enormous number of local shops and hostelries for refreshment.

If you are tempted, let me know and I can send further details or answer queries.


Michael.

* That still to be confirmed, but no difficulties anticipated.
+ In taste, not religion

The Phoenix Games Club is now confirmed for next week onwards. Our new venue has a lot more space and we are therefore able to recruit again.

To re-cap: From Tuesday the 19th of November, there will be a games club from 1830 at Partick Burgh Hall in Glasgow. No expectation that you'd pay any membership fees until you'd tried a few sessions.

Wargames and boardgames will be present. Club members do take part in RPG games, but there is no currently established group for Tuesday. Wargames are mostly historical but there are SF/Fantasy gamers present.

If you'd like to come as an individual or small group then please feel free to do so. If you are feeling a bit shy or unsure, please feel free to get in touch.

M.

Good to know youre still going. I spent a year working in Glasgow in the mid nineties snd this kept me (sort of) sane.

This sounds good. Are there particular games that tend to get played?

Michael,

Boardgames wise the most popular are C&C Nap - with me being a ringleader. Sword of Rome is a regular, as is Condottiere as a filler. Columbia blockgames as well.

As I say, most games are toy soldier games using a variety of rulesets - but I assumed you meant boardgames?

Board wargaming was exactly what I was hoping for. It is one type of game I've always struggled to find people as keen to play them as me.
