The Exmouth Imperial Wargames Club is a friendly wargames club in East Devon. We meet every Wednesday at 19.30 officially, although there are normally people around from around 18.45. We play a wide variety of games and new members are always welcome. We have about 20 members at the moment, so are not the biggest club in the world, but we find it does generate a more social atmosphere. We meet in a community centre, where refreshments are easily available.
The club plays a wide range of tabletop games - we don't have a conscious bias towards or against popular systems or periods and any tabletop game is welcome - if you need players for almost any game in any period you'll find them here! Currently we're playing a lot of Warhammer 40K, Wings of War/Glory, WW2 Rapid Fire, Lord of the Rings, Kill Team, Savage Core, X-wing, WW2 Pacific Naval, Hail Caesar, American War of Independence, Battle Fleet Gothic, Saga, Forager, Wild West and Gaslands but anything's possible and a number of less popular systems get played as well. The club has plenty of scenery, boards, mats, dice etc on site for members to use.
We also run Legionary, Exeter's annual wargame show, which in 2020 will take place on Saturday May 2nd at Exeter Matford Centre and features traders, demo games, bring and buy and a tournament or two!
Our club address is:
Liverton Copse Community Centre
