Welcome to CGN

Welcome to Canterbury Gamers News. This website orginally started in January 2002 as a printed magazine containing only two Play by Mail games a bit of news and a story. The games were The Paris Tribune and Chronicles of Rokugan. Since then a lot of time has passed players have come and gone, as have games, but the two original games continue.

This site is now the home of all the games that are and have been run under the CGN banner, it is not a replacement for the Adventure Gaming Society (our local Univeristy Gaming Club), it is an extra that can be accessed for free.

Feel free to join the site, there is not obligation to join any of the games, but you can discuss gaming, find out what is coming out at Westgate Games (our Friendly Local Games Store (FLGS)) and find out what events are being run in the Canterbury area.


Join the traders as they manipulate the figures, massage their egos and fulfill the contracts.

 CGN closing

Dear all,
I have received an email with a new bill for the hosting of CGN, unfortunately there are currently no games active on the site and so with sadness following the many many years of running CGN I am going to close it down.  There has for a long time been a Facebook group for CGN but I've never done anything with it and only a very few people even knew it existed.  If you want to stay in touch place search for CGN on Facebook and ask to join.

The bill is due on 2nd June and the site will go down shortly thereafter.  I will run backups of all the data and keep them on my computer.

CGNDocs is unaffected for the moment, until the next bill is due, but again I will ensure everything from there is backed-up on my computer.

Thank you for all your support over the years and see you on Facebook,

 Something Different

Folks, my time on the site will be limited for a few weeks (bad timing it seems), but our second little one arrived on Wednesday lunchtime.  Benjamin Edward Challoner will be taking up some of my time.
