A period of neglect.

Yes. A period of neglect. A long holiday and playing too many games…can there be too many? All this meant I haven’t had much time to update this website, which is a pity as the club is thriving with plenty of gamers and lots of different games played from all periods and ranges. Come along and join in on our regular Thursday night sessions at the Heart Centre.
