About Us

Sharing Excitement. Sharing Ideas. Sharing Knowledge. Building a Community.

Wessex Hobbies and Games (WHaG) is a group of individuals with a common interest in history and table-top battle games. (Also referred to as 'wargaming', think chess with figures on a playing surface representing the real world rather than the rigid confines of the chess board.)

Our group is spread across the UK, joining together for events and games days. Please see below for our next event or visit our events page for more information about our future plans.
