- GO: Games Night: Central Boardgaming (Walsall)See main event text, See main event text
Games Night: Walsall Central Boardgaming
Venue: Asgard Games, Market Square/Digbeth, Walsall, WS1 1QU
From July 2021, we have resumed physical tabletop board-games nights. At present these are run fortnightly on Fridays. We meet at Asgard Games Cafe, normally in the front-left area
Our members have a big collection of modern tabletop board games to choose from. We rotate them each time, so there will always be variety. Please feel free to bring along similar games of your own.
This is intended as a low-cost evening, but please do keep the owners happy with something from behind the counter/bar, perhaps one of their beers or a cuppa, or maybe their food is tempting enough.
To make it easiest for you to jump into a game straight away, it's best to arrive at the start of the session and stay on, plus it's worth trying new games as well as ones we already know how to play.
Location and parking
Parking is possible in nearby roads, though perfect for public transport. The cafe is a large building on your right as you pass through the Markets area coming from the bus or train stations.
New Members and Guests welcome! Please RSVP separately to each event you plan to attend. Host Contact 0.7.8.1.126.96.36.199.6.2.3
