Have Dice, Will Travel

By on 16 February 2011

Running in Dorset for roughly 42 years, Have Dice, Will Travel currently have about 35 members. They meet every Thursday night at The New Inn, Oakdale. At the moment they have four or five game tables running each week from 1930hrs until approx 2200hrs. They have a dozen or so regular GMs and an insane variety of games to offer. The usual suspects such as Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu and the World of Darkness games make a regular appearance, but a wide variety of lesser known games see some action too. They’re always looking for new players and GMs. There’s more information about which games are currently running elsewhere on their website; for further details contact them on the email address below. There are regular fees, ‘Have Dice’ is not a profit-making organisation, but they do have to pay for the hire of their gaming venue somehow. Membership is £5 per calendar year and their fees are £3 per game night. However, the 1st week is always free so you’ve nothing to lose!

Venue: The New Inn, 222 Wimborne Road, Poole, Dorset, BH15 2EL
Time: From 1930hrs on a Thursday.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
