A Bit About B-I-G

Bristol Independent Gaming is the largest table top gaming venue in the South West of England, boasting a huge 4000 square feet of gaming space! We set up shop in October 2014 as a miniature WarGaming and board gaming venue and store run by gamers for gamers. We provide a top quality gaming and hobby experience for the tournament player and garage gamer alike. We will always take the time to give you advise on anything gaming related, from painting questions to exploring new gaming systems! Take a look around our well stocked hobby shop or come and play on our fantastic boards where you can make use of our ever expanding variety of terrain!


The venue itself has a dedicated gaming area suitable for hosting large scale events and tournaments with premium quality tables and scenery available for a range of WarGaming systems including: Kings of War, Age of Sigmar, 40k, Bolt Action, War Machine and HordesX-Wing, Saga, Flames of War and Malifaux.
