    Have been running the club now for some 18 or 19 years. We meet at the Scout Hut, Old Hale Way, Hitchin. Herts. SG5 1XL. (signposted outside as Hitchin Rugby Club, use right hand side car park and scout hut is to the right of the main buildings).

    We game most things historical,  occasional Sci -Fi/ fantasy Zombie games but hardly any Warhammer 40K or similar (but there are two clubs in the vicinity who do and I am happy to put you in touch with them – they also meet in Hitchin, we are all on good friendly terms and often gather together to support each others events). I can be contacted by interested parties on [email protected]  You can also send me a message on the new club Facebook page which is under [email protected]  (please be aware that the Unofficial Black Wolf site was one set up by a member before we had our own site, it can be contacted and you should be redirected to us).

    The meetings take place every Thursday and start from 7pm till late. Occasional Sunday battles are arranged or all day games days if hut is available. Membership pay for hall at beginning of year and is divided equally (generally working out at £53 per year , so that’s a £1 a meeting really – those joining during the year get charged part costs and then that is passed onto next years funds – canteen charge of about £4 per year to provide tea/ coffee etc.).

    Get in contact if you want to know more, or turn up for a chat.  Peter Day

    The Black Wolf Wargames club (the friendly club for the North Herts area) will start it’s meetings for the year 2021 in March (tentative start date is 25th). The meeting venue remains the same, The Scout Hut, King George’s Playing Fields, Old Hale Way, HITCHIN. Herts. SG5 1XL. Meetings generally begin at 7pm and last until later in the evening about 11pm. Refreshments are available and generally tables do not need to be booked, although this is preferred. New members are always welcome to attend and we recommend you contact the club chairman before doing so on [email protected]  Obviously at the current time the start date is open to change and the club reserve the right to alter this date should the need arise. Games at the club vary tremendously from the Ancient period right through to Sci-fi and they take in miniature gaming, with almost all scales, and into Board gaming. Many rule sets are used but some popular ones tend to be SAGA / Bolt Action / Sharps Practice / many of the Peter Pig rules sets / Chain of Command and To The Strongest.

    Firstly hello to all,

    The Black Wolf Wargames Club in Hitchin is back up and running for 2023. We continue to meet on Thursday evenings from 6.45pm till late (generally about 10.45) at the Scout Hut, King Georges Playing Fields, Old Hale Way, Hitchin. Herts. UK (signposted as Hitchin Rugby Club on roadway and on maps). We game mostly historical battles using a variety of rule systems, although you will find the odd Sci-Fi / fantasy game being played. Most scales are catered for from 6mm to 28mm for land battles but we also game Naval and Air wargames in various scales. Board games are played as well. We are actively seeking new members and would welcome visitors to view what we do. Call in and have a cup of tea/ coffee and a chat, always welcome. As well as our normal meetings we also do large battles on some Sundays. We are also active in attending a few local Museums and shows. We will certainly be at Milton Keynes show in May. If you need more information you can contact the Chairman / Founder, Peter Day on [email protected] or even pay a visit to our Facebook page (just search Black Wolf Wargames Club).
