Tabletop wargames

Deeside Defenders is the largest table top games club in North Wales and Cheshire. We have been established for 16 years and have 100+ regular members with a typical Thursday night attendance of 40-50 gamers.

We are a major part of the local thriving war games scene. There are six clubs within 10 miles of Chester, along with war games stores in Chester, Brimstage (Wirral), and Wrexham. The club ethos is to provide an open, friendly environment that encourages and enables people to play whatever war games they like.
