Whitley Bay 3D Gamers Club
Whitley Bay 3D Gamers meet at the Masonic Lodge Hall on most Tuesday evenings between 6:30 and 10:30 with games taking place between 7 and 10.
Anyone with an interest in boardgaming or wargaming is invited along for an evening of fun and games with like-minded players. The hall is located on the corner of Norham Road and King’s Drive in Whitley Bay.
Why 3D Gaming?
It has been over a generation since the Digital Revolution transformed our everyday lives. Many of us work with computers in our 9 to 5 routines, and the Personal Computer has become almost ubiquitous when we arrive back in our homes. A generation has also grown up with PC games as their main source of entertainment, while the rest of us play catch-up. PC Games are now played across the internet, using social media and skype, to connect gamers around the world. And there is nothing wrong with that. But what the computer cannot do is reproduce the true, in-the-moment, connections that come with playing games face-to-face with friends. Add to that, those of us who spend all our work days on computers and want nothing more than to switch off and do something else. The recent renaissance in board and miniature gaming is a symptom of that desire.
With that in mind, Whitley Bay 3D Gamers encourages you to step away from the desk and play games one evening a week with like-minded gamers. This then is not a wargames club, or a boardgames club, or anything in-between, but a place to play with real games in real time in a real environment. These games involve miniature figures or wooden counters, and depend on skill, the roll of the dice, or the turn of a card to win. If you know what that means, you’ll know what it means to play 3D games: if you don’t know what it means why not come along and find out for yourself?
