The Bristol Big’Uns are a group of people who enjoy fantasy, science fiction and historical games. Whether these are in the style of tabletop war games, CCGs, CMGs, RPGs or board games doesn’t matter. If this sounds like a hobby you currently enjoy then why not come along or join our forum. http://biguns.co.uk
The club is based at Iron Acton, between Bristol and Yate, in the recently refurbished Parish Hall and is held Sunday evenings from 6 pm until 10 pm. There are tables and chairs available plus 6’ x 4’ boards and terrain for Warhammer type games. There is a ‘tuck shop’ happily providing crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks at a reasonable price. Use the contact tab above for more information on how to get to the club.
The club runs several special events during the year including all day meetings and tournaments. The tournaments are for Warhammer and are the famous Bristol Brawl and the infamous and imaginatively named Bristol Brawl part Deux. Use the tournaments tab above for more information on tournaments.
The club has a web-based forum for discussion and for arranging games. Use the forum tab above to introduce yourself and say hello. (Note that the forum is actively policed to keep spam and non-club related chit chat to a minimum.)
We encourage our members to write gaming related articles which we post on the website. Have a look yourself by using the articles tab.
