PICK & PLAY NIGHTS
How many times have you said, “I’d love to try that system, but I don’t know where to start” well look no further than Gobstyks Pick and Play night. We will be running a series of small game introductions to systems that you really want to try, or maybe haven’t heard of before. We provide the resources and the miniatures so all you have to do is turn up, pick your system and play!
The Gobstykup is our annual Blood Bowl season, currently running in its 9th season in its current format and has run since 2002. Coaches commit to a yearlong season which starts in January and runs until the end of September when the league stage finishes and coaches qualify for the play offs, a knock out competition where teams are placed based on their final league position. Don’t worry if it’s been a bad season though, as we hold the Gobstykshield to see who is the very best, of the worst. Missed out on joining? Don’t worry, we also run the B Kup alongside the main league, which is less formal and you can play at any point during the season, for more information contact us and our League Commissioner, Septic Bladder will fill you in on all the details, and even how you can get yourself a star to join your team for free!
ALL YEAR LONG!
MARCH MAYHEM SATURDAY EVENT!!!
March Mayhem is our annual Saturday tournament, or to be more accurate, series of tournaments. At March Mayhem, Gobstyks will run several tournaments at once for different systems, this year it will be Blood Bowl, Warhammer 40,000, Warmachine/Hordes and X-Wing miniatures game. For more information on the rules for each system check out our website, and if you’d like to take part then please contact us for more information and to buy your ticket. This is a very popular event and so systems can fill pretty quickly, so get in early and start planning for your victory!
SATURDAY 17TH MARCH
Our Annual General Meeting is on the anniversary of the club founding, which will be 21 years this September. We vote in our leadership committee, who are volunteers who run the club, organise the snack bar, control the finances and arranges competitions and tournaments. These are the guys that make sure the club runs smoothly and everyone can enjoy playing in a fun and safe environment. They also organise a free members raffle on the night, where all members are given free raffle tickets and we raffle of some of the finest war gaming ‘stuff’ you will find. This is just another perk of being a member of Gobstyks.
