Our club was founded in May of 1997 and were initially located in the North End Hall, Bainsford with a dozen or so members. After two interesting years and an ever growing membership we were located at Beancross & Newlands Community Hall until March 2024 and the move to our current location:
Low Port Centre,
1 Blackness Rd,
Every Monday between 6pm and 10pm.
If you would like more information about our club, we’re happy to oblige.
We have a very active membership and are always happy to see new faces.
We are an informal, easy going group and are happy for anyone to come along, have a chat and see what we do. We welcome and encourage new players whatever their age or level of experience. With over 50+ members you are likely to find a willing opponent for your system of choice!
Our members play a diverse range of tabletop wargames from historical, fantasy, Sci-Fi and all the sub-genres in between!
On any given night you are likely to see historical battles being played out on land, air and sea, alongside fantasy skirmishing or epic battles in mythical realms. Or even beyond, to galactic encounters in deepest space! Our members represent a broad range of experience and interests covering all aspects of our wargaming hobby.
Many of our members own and play a diverse range of board games and often slip into roleplaying character for a spot of adventuring, transporting themselves from the club hall to some fantastical world full of danger, heroics, sacrifice and treasures. At least, for a few hours!
Alongside tabletop wargaming, our members regularly set up elaborate board games, often taking advantage of the extended club Sunday opening hours for epic games or RPG sessions.
Falkirk District Wargames Club is based in Grangemouth in the Central Belt of Scotland. The Falkirk area has a rich military history: the Eastern end of the Roman Antonine wall passes through here; the sites of the battles of 1st Falkirk (1298, Scottish Wars of Independence) and 2nd Falkirk (1746, Jacobite Rebellion) are on our doorstep. Plus Bannockburn (1314) is 9 miles to the north and Linlithgow Bridge (1526) is just 8 miles east.
The club was founded back in May 1997 with 13 original members and has grown steadily since. Our current membership is over 50 people and many of the original founders are still involved. Our focus is primarily on GAMING, not committees, and formalities are usually limited to one quick AGM per year that still leaves plenty of time to get a game in!
