Board Games And War Gamers Thread

posted by Stephanie on 25 Jan 2013 at 5:46 pm

I moved from the North 6 months ago and I find that I am really missing the regular board games nights me and my friends used to have.

I haven't managed to meet many people in Bexhill, and I wonderd if there would be anyone (of a vaguely similar age - I'm 32) who would be interested in playing every now and again?

A few drinks and a board game is always good fun!

Any Luck?

posted by Chris on 03 Jun 2013 at 11:28 am

I moved to the area about a year ago and have been traveling to eastbourne to play with others but they are mainly wargamers. I'm 21 and looking for something closer to home.

Have you had any luck finding gamers?

No joy as of yet! My husband is a wargamer and plays over in Eastbourne, but for general board games i‘ve had no luck...

I understand there is a group called the 1066 wargaming group that recently started in the area. They have a Facebook page and a link with the Famous Collectables store on Western road. I've been meaning to check them out myself as I'm looking to get some D&D games going.
