Games Wales North is a social group aimed at anyone connected to the Games industry who works or lives in North Wales. We also welcome anyone who wants to join in from across the border, as long as you don’t mind the initiation rites.

We generally meet once a month – the details will be published here in advance, plus via our mailing list (see the Newsletters page) and Twitter feed @GamesWalesNorth
