Board Games Afternoon

Board Games Afternoon - in the upstairs room at The Bless 

Let's have a meetup and play some board games.  Bring along your favourite games and hopefully there'll be a good selection of your own favourites and also some new games that you haven't played before.  Games that don't take too long and have straight-forward rules will probably be better, so that we don't have to spend too long learning complicated rules.

There is no charge for the room as long as we buy some drinks from the bar :-)

I have put the start time back to 4.30 pm so that anyone driving can take advantage of the free parking in the city centre after 4 pm.

      I guess that just means we'll have to do it again, so we can all play different games next time :-)

    What time is this roughly going on until?
    My Sunday has gone different to how I planned, but I would still like to try and make it, even if only to pop in and say hello.

    February 9, 2014

    • Steve

      Hi Garry. It's impossible to say really, because it depends on how long people stay. You can always text me to see if we're still there :-)

      February 9, 2014

    • Garry

      Thanks steve,
      I should only be an hour late if that, I shall pop down anyway as it's not far from me at all

    If anyone wants to reply to this comment and say what games(s) they are able to bring, it might help us to get a more varied selection :-)

      I have also dug out 'Addiction' and also since it is the Winter Olympics a curling game! could be a long evening.

      February 6, 2014

    Just to mention the room is booked for several hours, so if 4.30pm is too early for, feel free to sign up and come along later :-)

    Hi sounds good fun, do us ever play for a small amount of money? That always adds to the excitement :)

    January 25, 2014

    • Steve

      I think you might find it's illegal to play for money in a Public House without a gambling licence. I might bring a few sweets for the winners though :-)
