Post  Guest on Tue Mar 23 2010, 23:18

Our gaming space includes eight tournament sized (8'x4') terrained tabletop wargames tables (wastes, desert or forest), two 4'x'4 tables for board/card games, four multi-purpose gaming tables which can be used for board, card or wargames (option of blue for sea games or black for space games). We also have 'The Morgue' - a private gaming room with an 8'x4' morgue effect table. This room is best suited to a role playing group game, but if available can be used for any gaming activity.

Also on offer is an unrivaled selection of merchandise available to purchase - discover products here which have previously been unavailable in Ireland, including products from Warlord Games, Mantic, Perry Miniatures, Army Painter, Battlefront (Flames of War), Spartan Games, Kabuki Models, Otherworld Miniatures, and of course Games Workshop.

Facilities on offer include a leather sofa lounge area with Sky HDTV, tea/coffee making facilities, a microwave and a vending machine for snacks and soft drinks.

Hi - a nice little selection of the most popular items at present, but will expand as we go along, and of course we can order in anything you need. Discount? Yes! Monthly and yearly members get a 10% discount. Check the membership topic for more info, but hope to see you on Saturday Big Grin

Congratulations and thanks to all concerned with today's successful opening. All your hard workis justified.

I had a great timeand was impressed with the setup.I was amazed to escape without spending a fortune on miniatures etc.And thanks for the buffet too.

I forgot to pickup any hne-night gear,though.

Unfortunately Glenoe is too far for me to be a regular visitor, but I wish you well.

A HUGE thank-you to everyone who turned up and showed their support today. The sun was shining and we got through loads of games, but we couldn't have held the event without you guys!

Hope to see you all soon.

Gary

I play Race for the Galaxy and Dominion (as well as a few other non CCGs). We have some MTG players though.

Hi Wulfen

Mostly Magic the Gathering so far, but i'm sure that will expand once someone brings something different. There's a few guys playing MTG at Arkham as we speak Big Grin

We stock MTG and Yu-Gi-Oh! at the moment but again, that will expand in time.

What are you into yourself?

Card game wise I am heavily into my Yu-Gi-Oh! and Board game wise I play Warhammer 40k.

Unfortuantly I refuse to play with my 40k army until I have it painted.

So when I do get a chance to venture round I will bring what I have. Wink

I also play Warhammer: Invasion, for those that don't know this is a LCG (Living Card Game) from Fantasy Flight.

Forgot to mention that.

I think we've just ordered a core set to stock at Arkham. I haven't tried any of the LCG range as yet.
