What: A celebration of the best board, card and tabletop games with themed nights and prizes – all washed down with awesome gaming cocktails! We feature a new game every week. Each week you can play this new game for free and usually have the chance to win a copy just by playing the game throughout the evening.
When: From 8pm until 12pm! But feel free to turn up early and play more games!
Cost: Free entry and games are free to play, just make sure you buy your drinks!
Feature Game: Each week we feature a different game. There is usually the opportunity to win a copy of this game just by playing it on the night. Everyone that plays the feature game is entered into a free prize draw near the end of the evening.
This Week our feature game is: Forbidden City
We continue on our month long journey of exploration by venturing forth to the Forbidden City. Fortunately we have permission to make our way into the city and need to try to gain the most influence in the Imperial Palace to aide the young emperor.
Similar to last week’s Small Islands, this game appears to be similar to Carcassonne. It is a tile laying game for 2–4 players that takes around 30 minutes to play.
Last Week: Also don’t forget last weeks’ feature game, Small Islands, which will be available to play from now on!
Tournaments: Every first Tuesday of the Month, Bez, of StuffByBez, will be hosting tournaments with prizes for her fantastic games, Wibbell++ & Kitty Cataclysm. No prior knowledge of the games are needed and everyone will be encouraged to join in with the fun!
Also, note that recent feature game, Keyforge, will only be available on Tuesdays by request – just ask Tim and he will gladly teach you using the two sets we have for Tabletop Tuesday.
