About Bedford Gladiators

We cover a wide range of Wargames Periods and have a number of role-playing groups that are actively recruiting players.

    Good morning,

    I have just moved into the Bedford area and was wondering if I could come along to the club and get involved/have a few games every now and then.

    I am a member of the GCN network and my club is Gambit Games in Brighton but due to my job I move around every few years. I currently play Warhammer, WH 40K, Warmachine, Hordes and Dystopia Wars.

    I currently am away but will be back on the Tues 3rd Jan.

    If I could come along one Monday night and see what you guys are about I would love to.

    Many thanks – I look forward to hearing form you

    Dear Sir Or Madam
    Im looking to get back into role playing. my main game is Runequest. any advice or help would be nice

    I have a wide amount of materials for runequest and i think many like these are no longer available.

    Thanks for your time

      Geff, we have a group that regularly plays runequest…once a month I believe. Come on down and see what you think to the club. I am sure you will feel right at home.

    Hi there,

    I hope this finds you well?

    I own The Games Vault in Daventry Northants.

    The regulars here and I are putting a gaming convention together and it will be running the weekend of March the 12th and 13th.

    I was wondering if you would please be able to put a poster up at your club? If so please can you give me an e-mail address to send a poster to.

    If you have any questions or would like to run a demo or participation event please drop me a line.

    Many thanks, kind regards,
