Specials & Specialist Gaming

Specials and Specialist Gaming are what we consider one offs and unique events that embody the best of the games club and are either a day or evening event, one that embraces the game and the fun social aspect of gaming in a  friendly open atmosphere. So what you can look forward to:

The games played each night at the club are extremely varied, and while board games are a big feature we also have fans and players of Warhammer (8th edition Fantasy, 40k and Age of Sigmar), X-wing, Malifaux and Bolt Action. In addition to more traditional Wargames, we also have groups who regularly play RPGs.

Organized Play exists to help you explore more of those possibilities. By supporting a wide range of events and gaming experiences,  our previous organised plays saw an X-Wing night, a Bolt Action Sunday and a Gaslands Session. Our players found it helped with new and varied army lists, find more games, meet more players, explore more gaming opportunities.

The Games Club is though at its heart a place to play games and the more people who pop down and game the greater the number of new opportunities and gaming ties we can find. Nottinghamshire and the surrounding places have a wealth of great gaming companies and players, we aim to see that we all get a chance to meet and great.



Quiet Gaming Sessions

Join us for our special Quiet Gaming Sessions – all the same fun of our Tuesday Nights Board Gaming Sessions but with much less hustle and bustle!

Its a quieter spot which provides an atmosphere in which to explore and enjoy board and tabletop, but withan understanding as to the sensitive needs of visitors within autistic spectrum or other communication and sensory conditions. The session takes place usually on a Sunday 4pm till 7pm, during our usual opening hours. Siblings, families, carers and friends are welcome.

Tournament play

We have also seen organized Tournament play and a team up with a local Card Games Organiser and ProjectTHISNG, which saw over 50 players testing their skills at a Yu-Gi-Oh. It allowed players to test their skills, bothin card play and skill, with the usual inter game friendlies.

Bolt Action Sunday Gaming provides opportunities for new army lists, innovative play styles and historical thematic squads for custom events and play styles. with the new army lists and rules from Warlord Games and complete innovative new challenges.

When you play in our Special Events and Organized Play, you’ll become part of the larger gaming community and engage in something that helps cross all social and political and the sexual orientation. We aim to see people having fun and enjoying themselves.

And last, but not least…

There is also the Opportunity to learn about HobbySpotz and ProjectTHISNG, with our Hobby Space and Community Space. We also have ties to the local gaming community (Tabletop Industry Coffee Mornings and Socials) and those who run it from makers to designers and artists and writers.
