"Games"?, What do you mean "Games"?
What kind of games do we play ?
We don't mean games of chance, we don't play or allow any games that involve gambling, that's not what we're about, Mainly our club focuses on two types of games, paper and pencil roleplaying game, and table top war games, but we don't limit ourselves to them, we also play card games and board games on a fairly regular basis.
as for what kind of role playing games, we enjoy and play clasic fantasy games like AD&D, horror and historically based games like Call of Cthulu, modern games such as Top Secret and D20 Modern and sci fi games such as star trek and star wars, on top of that, we have written our own settings to play games and some of us have even written entire game systems and setting to go with them. Role playing games are a form of escapism, allowing you to be a mystical warrior, crew of a starship, interstellar knight, a victorian explorer on another world, a hero or a criminal, the combinations are as endless as your imagination and here we beleive in the power of imagination.
As for the table top games, mainly world war two and sci fi and fantasy base table top war games are commonly played, perhaps the most famous and well known of these would be Warhammer and its sci fi counterpart Warhammer 40,000. quite commonly the games are historical and involve reinacting or rewritting part of or an entire historical battle, its fun to see how a battle could turn out if circumstances were different. Table top games are large in scale, entire battlefeilds can be shown, letting you see how every action and reaction can change the outcome.
When it comes to card games we play a very wide range, ranging from near comical, superhero based and monster based card games. the games most famously know are games like Yu-gi-oh, The fantasy based MAGIC and the wrestling based WWE card games, generally in addition to being games, they are often collectable card sets as well meaning many of them can be expanded on to give new game options by buying card packs that are called "booster" packs. Finally some of these games, famously MAGIC, hold tournaments that bring many players together from large areas, some even hold international tournaments allowing you to meet people from other nations and see how playing the game may differ in their nation.
lastly there are the board games, they are so numerous its incredible, famous board games include monopoly, scrabble, cluedo and axis and allies, but there are so many more, thousands more. in general, board games are simple to play though some take a bit of getting used to, the range of the settings and styles thay have, there is one where your a robot plannning its moves to get from location to location on a map, there is another where you are an investigator fighting to stop an ancient evil coming to our world, in another you are a dwarf trying to mine gems to make your fortune. From those few examples it is easy to see how diverse such games can get, and they can be incredibly fun.
