What We Do

Welcome to Tabletop!

The brief summary of the Tabletop Gaming Society is that we play all sorts of non-computer based games. From RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons or Paranoia, or TCGs like Magic: the Gathering, Wargames (Warhammer!), and board games like Smallworld, Battlestar Galactica and Power Grid. If you're looking for something cultural, you might even want to try Mahjong!

We have a huge variety of games and players. There is no need for new members to have any previous experience with any of our areas, we are always happy to share everything and teach people how to play.

We meet up very regularly and are a friendly bunch. We happily accept everyone, whether you're an experienced gamer or if you've never played before. We also have close links with BVGS, the video gamers, as a society.

Check out our facebook page if you are interested.

The Tabletop Gaming Society Logo was inspired by art work by Laura Clayton and drawn by Tobias Woodman.
