The Amsterdam6shooters are a friendly and open wargame club in Amsterdam, established in 2014. We meet every 2nd Saturday and 4th Sunday of the month in our clubhouse very near the Muiderpoort station in Amsterdam-East, from 13-18 o’clock (or later) . Check our events calendar.
We focus on miniature wargaming and tactical and strategic board(war)games. We’re a social club for social gamers. Minimum age is 16. We laugh, have fun, throw dice, drink beer and conquer lands. We have armies. We have scenery. You can wargame against us even if you don’t have the miniatures. Tactical instinct is the only thing you really need.
We’re not a youth club. The majority of our members are 25 years or older and have been playing (board)wargames for years. We have a core membership group of about 35-40 regulars and 10-15 irregular visitors, who play sometimes and pay an entrance fee.
The club is interested in all kinds of games related to minatures and strategy and all historical and non-historical periods and themes. We started as a mostly historical wargames club and in 2018 merged with the Amsterdam 40K-club ‘Amsterdam Battle Brothers’. Thus, we have two distinct branches that happily play together:
- about half of our group regularly plays a broad range of many different well-known casual historical and skirmish games. You might like Black Powder, Bolt Action, De Bellis Antiquitatis, Blücher, Frostgrave, Flames of War, X-Wing and Infinity. We play that and more.
- Our other half is a group of dedicated 40k-fans. You can join our ‘Battle Brother’ tournaments and game against our passionate 40K and Killteam-veterans, competitive or casual, just as you like.
We also sometimes play dungeon crawlers with miniatures like Descent, Conan or Imperial Assault and irregularly try boardwargames like Command & Colours, Memoir ’44 or Heroes of Normandie. We don’t play general or family board games or role playing games, however. We recommend boardgame clubs (list).
Membership/ entrance fee
Membership fee per calendar year is 45,- per annum. Non-members who join a table pay nothing the first time, 2 euro the second time and after two visits the regular 8 euro entrance fee.
If you only want to look around, we charge nothing. Nada. Niente. You’re welcome (yes, we’re mad). We serve free lunch and spicey snack food, and our bar is cheap (all drinks around 1 euro). Bringing your own drinks is not allowed, however. Come and beat us, and if you can’t beat us – join us!
