The Skibbwargamers were set up in 2005. From board games to videogames, table-top strategies to the occasional game of charades; we play it. We will most regularly be seen on the gaming circuit as 40K players and we have attended quite a few over the last few years. We hope to provide a group where mutual nerdy interests, like the importance of corridors in Sci-Fi, can be discussed in a grown up manner. We also like to be in the thick of things at any of the Irelands major gaming events loudly explaining these views to anyone who will listen.
Warhammer 40,000 This is the game we play most regularly and we can be seen at most of the tournaments around Ireland. You’ll know it’s us because we’ll be the ones shouting abuse at each other.
SkibbCon SkibbCon is an annual event held in Skibbereen, County Cork in the second Weekend of June. The friendly West Cork town plays host to a Wargaming package weekend where we will stay in the venue of the con allowing us to continue the social side of gaming well into the night without worrying about transportation to the event the next day. Each year we hope to do something different in order to make it that little bit special with the social side of the hobby being our primary concern. So from arguments about whose army is better to loud hissing at the winners of the pub quiz, SkibbCon is the place to be for an enjoyable weekends retreat in one of the nicest parts of the country.
