What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Our favourite board gaming convention is back in January. Its a great chance to try games you don't normally have access to as the facebook group helps bring people who want to play and people who own games together. The food is normally pretty reasonable if a bit pricey and you may need to look further afield for a hotel room if this one is booked up. There are quizzes, demos and silly games and large multiplayer games organised. There is always a fairly good bring and buy and a fair umber from the club are going. Tickets are available on the HandyCon website.
An additional meetup for anyone who has trouble joining us on Wednesdays....or for people who just can't get enough tabletop action :-D Bring along any games you have and want to play...or just rock up and see what other people have brought. It's Friday. Have a drink, relax and de-stress by turning your work brain off and your gaming brain on....and doing the exact same move that someone else wanted to do... causing them to wave their fist in the air and shout "Damn you!!!!!". So cathartic...we love it when that happens! As usual, any questions; drop us a message...we will reply.
You are welcome to bring any board games with you or just come and join in. We don't have any expectations of previous experience. We usually choose games from a selection brought on the night based on how many people we are expecting - so signing up early helps us bring games that will cater for everyone . Game requests are always welcome....just speak up in the comments section. Anyone wanting to play a longer game that will take all evening should mention it too, so that we can ensure it gets set up quickly and the players involved can turn up early. We will always have a choice of games available to play and hope you come along and have fun! Everyone is welcome to bring their own snacks and drinks including beer / wine etc. We will have free tea and coffee available. Please note the different venues and facilities available for our Wednesday / Alternate Friday meetups. Any questions; message us! We are used to it and will reply :-)
Stephen has managed to book us in to the North End Club for the last Sunday in every other month. Its a chance to spend an afternoon and evening playing board games! :-) Make a dent in your pile of shame! Bring along that game you love but isn't played often enough because there just aren't enough hours... bring lots of shorter games to play or just bring yourself and enjoy other people's games. The club has a bar with drinks and snacks available to purchase for some of the afternoon.. There is also a nearby Sainsbury's for when the bar is closed. There is every chance of me organising a large takeaway order for anyone who wants one when we hit 6 or 7pm. Use the comments for game requests if there is something you want to play but don't have...or to list what you are going to bring with you. To ensure that we cover cost of the room, I'll be charging £3 per person (or possibly a little more if we get less than 10 people).
