Not sure if this is the right place for this but i can't see where else this fit, so i'll put here and it can be moved if need be.

My local gaming club (St Neots Primarchs) has ebcome prohibitivly expensive to attend, so i'm thinking of switching the venue for my regular gaming fix to GW Peterborough veteran nights

What i'm asking is does anyone here go there, and if so what's peoples opinions of the store. Is it a nice place to go? What are the regulars like?

Basically, is it worth switching from my current good (but expensive) gaming club?

Thanks in advance

Well I was a regular for a few years until I moved away, but it was pretty good then. However I have been back a couple of times since and it's not what it used to be. Very quiet sadly. The only staff member I know now is Dan. Very nice bloke.

Remember you cannot play specialist games, even if you order them through that store you cannot play them for some reason

You're on a bit of a campaign about this, eh?

the specialist games thing is hardly unique to Peterborough. I'm interested in what it's like as a store, not nationwide company policy

What yabba said.

Not wishing to derail but - local club is too expensive - gives a hint of GW's costs in providing free tables.

How expensive is your local club? Ours is 2 a night for 5 hours gaming.

50 pence for adults 30 pence for kids for two and a half hours

The Primarchs is 3 a night, but it's also another 3.50 in travelling costs for me. As a skint uni student, you can see why playing in GW is a much more attractive option.

Its my local store and its a nice place to go, the staff are all great and most of the regulars are genuinly nice people.

I'm down nearly every thursday and cant think of anything bad to say about it.

Most of the people who were dragging the atmosphere of the place down have left aswell.

Hope this helps.

I think I'm going to check it out when i get time, then make up my mind for myself

@ Zirone if you're a regular, then perhaps we could have a game or two?

Yeah sure, like i said i'm in nearly every thursday so i'd be more than happy to give you a game :)

Err, just look for the tall guy with the ginger mop, either outside smoking or yammering on about the Tau Barracuda ;)

Pay to play on the store's table(s)?? Glad to be on THIS side of the pond. But then private tables in people's homes are the norm (at least for non-GW gamers).

I dont't think any of the costs here are for store gaming, but independant games clubs.

Most stores in the UK have limited space for games, so they are restricted to vet's nights and the like which can be quite busy. There are also a lot of independant games clubs run by gamers which meet once or twice a week in hall's, back rooms and the like, for which there is normally a nominal fee to cover hire of the room and to help expand the club (by purchasing club rule books, terrain, new boards, etc)

Due to houses in the UK being smaller in general than those over the other side of the pond, and lacking in useful things like basements (if you had one ver here it's likely now been converted into a flat) there are fewer people who have space for gaming at home.
