    This Week's Feature Game is: Dwarven Beerfest Finishing off our month of “Great Little Games”, Dwarven Beerfest is (following on from last week’s High Society) another push-you-like style game but this time it is all about getting Dwarfs drunk! Quick to play and fun, so I expect it to go down as well as a cold pint on a warm day! Also, worth noting that this is the Pre-release version from UK Games Expo but they currently have a Kickstarter active for the new version with added features such as the Under the Table expansion and, perhaps most importantly, a 3D printable barrel!

    This Week's Feature Game is: High Society Continuing our month’s journey of “Great Little Games”, High Society made a bit of a buzz when it was re-released last year. A fairly quick to play, simple card game centred around an auction bidding mechanic that tasks you with collecting as many of the desirable cards while avoiding those with a negative score. But beware – extra snootiness comes into play at the end game with the player that has the least amount of money remaining being unable to win! However, you can win a copy of the game just but playing on the evening and we won’t be checking for money when we give out our prizes!

Clarendon Games will be supporting our events from now on and have already donated some of their smaller games, such as; Brain Elixir: After Dinner Riddles and Laughter Tonic: Where's the Word. This week they join us to help teach us their fun, party game of alliterative actions – using miming in a charades type fashion to competitively guess alliterative phrases.

Our BIG friends over at Big Potato Games are kindly returning to join us with a shiny brand new game in the form of What Came First?!
