Q. What can we play

The Orgnaisers will be around to help you find a game or players for your game during the day.

There will be many games run by the organisers and other attendess with a sign up desk to find games that require players or to register your game.

Otherwise you can bring along any game you like to play, but please if you are going to bring along a game that will require significant space please contact the organisers so we can ensure we can accomodate you.



Q. Do you have a Games Library

We do not have our own games library, though we used to borrow a selection of games from the Spirit Games library. We found most people were bringing their own meaning this was hardly ever used so we no longer do this.

We do ask attendees to leave games and bags on the stage to keep tables and aisles free during the day, please do not mistake this for a games library.

If you are looking for a game to play or players please ask the organisers for help.




Q. What are the opening and closing times

The event opens at 10am and closes at 8pm.

Please note the doors will only open at 10am.



Q. Is Parking Available

The Waterside Community Centre has its own Car Park, there is also a limited amount of on-street parking outside the Hall although there are double-yellows on the Hall side of the road.

As you approach the hall from Roliston Road there is a side street called Byron Ave that appears to have on-street parking options.

As this is a residential area we ask that you please respect our new neighbours during your arrival and departure.

As normal vehicles are parked at the owners own risk.

[We will revise this page as we learn more about our new home]


Q. Can we bring our own food and drink

Yes you are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink.

The only exeption is that Alcohol is not allowed on the premises.

All we ask is that you keep it away from the gaming tables to respect the game owners property as some games are irreplaceable.


Q. How much does it cost

The typical ticket price is listed below, but can be subject to change:

£ 4.00 for Adults, accompanied Children under 16 £free.

Please Note:
All pricing will be subject to constant review and the current price printed on the tickets.
