The HATE club (Hackney Area Tabletop Enthusiasts) was formed from the ashes of the Stoke Newington Wargames Society in 2010. Since then we have made a name for ourselves for good natured and enthusiastic gaming throughout the country.

It now exists as a games club dedicated to gaming in many forms, tabletop war gaming (primarily Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000), board games, roleplaying games and collectible card games. At every single HATE might we’ve run, there have been both multiple board games & war games played. And by board games we mean stuff like: Bloodbowl, Space Hulk, Galaxy Truckers, Citadels, Junta!, Lords of Waterdeep, Zombicide, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Chaos in the Old World, Zombies!, Talisman, etc,.

We are mainly driven by the fun and creativity that can be found in our hobbies and are not the most competitive of clubs. This group is for club members and friends to discuss games, events, modelling and painting. As well as to arrange games for club nights.


We proudly support:
