In Wargames, we simulate battles through the use of custom-built and painted miniatures. These range from small scale skirmishes to planet wide conflicts, with players using a mixture of luck and skill to carefully position units and resolve the resulting combat through rolling dice.
Our Wargames sessions involve a range of game systems; regularly played systems include: Warhammer 40,000; Kill Team; Warmahordes; Star Wars: X-wing; Armada; and Legion. Don't worry if you have a preferred games system that isn't listed here, as we are always happy to try out a new wargame. We also have society armies allowing anybody to turn up and play, regardless of experience!
We are running a drop-in session with limited capacity. We will meet at the listed venue and then games will be held socially-distanced in different rooms across campus. You can stay longer if you like - however we may you to step out if we need space for those who are waiting!
If you wish to attend our in-person events, you must abide by the following rules or you will be asked to leave:
- We will be mandating that masks are worn by all participants along with social distancing in accordance with government advice. If you do not wear a mask, if you do not abide by social distancing rules, and/or if you do not practise proper sanitation, you will be told to leave our event.
- If you feel ill or are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay at home. We won't be chasing you up if you miss your session or anything like that - we'd much rather you got better and didn't infect anyone else! Plus, we are offering online versions of all of our events (except LARP), so you won't be missing out.
- We ask that you wash and sanitise your hands before, during and after your play session. We will endeavour to provide hand sanitiser as well as disposable gloves if you would like to wear those while playing. Furthermore, we ask you not to eat during your play session.
- Tables will be sanitised after people have finished playing on them, ready for new players to sit down and play.
- If you sign up to this event, you are agreeing to abide by all the rules we set out above, and our Code of Conduct (https://www.warwicktabletop.co.uk/page/codeofconduct/). Do not sign up if you do not agree with them.
