What we're about

For those who love playing board games, but had no-one to play with.

Board Games Master List
A list of all the board games available can be found on the group Message board. On there you can add your own games, or sugest which one(s) you'd like to try.

Please note that the availability of these games depends on whose organising/coming to the event. Also, complex games may need a whole event dedicated to them.

Playtest an unreleased game!

Card Merchant Nelson

A local game designer has asked me to get a group of people to playtest a game he's designing and give feedback. The currently untitled game is designed to nurture children's creativity and combines elements of snakes and ladders, drawing challenges, and storytelling. Experience with children is a bonus but all that's really required is that you're willing to provide feedback on how you enjoyed the game. I'll also bring along some treats to sweeten the deal. :)

Advanced Board Games: Eldritch Horror (with expansions!)

Card Merchant Nelson

"Across the globe, ancient evil is stirring. Now, you and your trusted circle of colleagues must travel around the world, working against all odds to hold back the approaching horror. Foul monsters, brutal encounters, and obscure mysteries will take you to your limit and beyond. All the while, you and your fellow investigators must unravel the otherworldy mysteries scattered around the globe in order to push back the gathering mayhem that threatens to overwhelm humanity. The end draws near! Do you have the courage to prevent global destruction?

Eldritch Horror is a co-operative game of terror and adventure in which one to eight players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One – that is, an elder being intent on destroying our world. Each Ancient One comes with its own unique decks of Mystery and Research cards, which draw you deeper into the lore surrounding each loathsome creature. Discover the true name of Azathoth or battle Cthulhu on the high seas."
