Gamers Society

About Us:

A relaxed society aiming to provide a place to socialize and play board, card, tabletop war and video games. You don't even have to be a student to join in with our events! Some games will be brand new, or bring your own games, all rules will be explained on the day. You don't need to be good at games or know the games beforehand, just turn up and have fun!
We have a variety of games available, you can even request games that the society can buy in for members to play. We continue during Holidays (including summer) so you can come any time of year and have a good time!

This year each week is based around a theme, so to add some variety to our socials - have a look at our event page to see what's on this week.
