About Us

Welcome to B-I-G!

It all began in 2014 when we began a journey into the unknown, we decided to move from Plymouth and head to Bristol to begin a new adventure together.

Our mission was to create an inviting, comfortable and enjoyable experience for tabletop gamers in Bristol. Jim's passion for painting minis; building fantastic terrain; and playing and knowing about what amounts to ALL OF THE GAMES, alongside Ellen's amazing, outstanding customer service skills and complete lack of knowing her Nurgle from her Stompy Robots Dudes has given Bristol a unique gaming venue and hobby store. The gaming community has created the welcoming atmosphere that we wanted at BIG, and is what keeps us opening the doors against all odds.

We haven't always managed to hit comfortable on the head (anyone who has gamed at BIG in February will know to bring thermals), but we think that the atmosphere at BIG is one of community, friendship and belonging and that by far makes up for any frostbite or hypotheria suffered by hardcore wargamers.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve, we’d love to hear from you at .
