Here at Nerd Base, we host various events designed for all types of nerd and all ages. You’ll find video game tournaments, trading card speed duels and more. Plus, we’ll soon be launching regular evening events including Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons nights.
We have prizes available for winners, leaderboards in store, as well as a Nerd Base Points system that’ll make you want to come back for more.
There are friendly staff on hand to help you learn how to play any game if you haven’t mastered it yet.
Unless otherwise stated, all events have a £5 entry fee.
Here’s a rundown of the current events calendar. Let us know if you’ve got a particular request for a future event – we’re always open to new ideas.
