The Jackson Gamers are a thoroughly disorganized group of historical miniature gamers who meet on the first , third, and fifth Saturdays of each month in Jackson Mississippi USA. We play all manner and scale of miniature war games, with a variety of published rules and our own efforts.
Visitors are always welcome in these public games. If you let us know ahead of time, we can try to “save you a command.” Even if that is not possible, we can always wedge you in somewhere. There are no game fees or dues.
The game begins as soon after 10 am as we can get things set up, and it runs until the middle of the afternoon. We also fight private games in members’ homes. Some of these may be announced here and some may only be arranged “by word of mouth” because of space limitations.
WHERE DO WE MEET?
For a number of years HOBBYTOWN USA allowed us to meet there, but available space limitations after they moved to a smaller location ended that. Then we met at THE DRAGON’S LAIR in Pearl MS but since that store closed, most of our games have been in individual homes.
FONDREN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, located in the Fondren District of north Jackson has very kindly allowed us to have some games in their Fellowship Hall. We acknowledge their support, fellowship and tolerance of us and thank them for it.
HOW IS YOUR CLUB ORGANIZED?
We are not organized in any manner. There is no club government nor officers. The Jackson Gamers have been in existence, in one form or another for more than 35 years. Before that we were a group of students and gamers at Mississippi State University. Like Topsy, we “just growed.” We claim as members and friends (no distinction here) gamers in many locations over Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas.
We welcome contacts from gamers and other gaming groups!
