Where: Loading Bar (Scenario), 97 Stoke Newington Road, N16 8BX London 

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 often 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’s Feature Game is: Majesty: For the Realm

A game designed by the creator of of the very popular Splendor should be of interest to most modern board gamers and any game where I can play the German version (which was demoed at Rezzed 2018) and still find enjoyment should be of even greater interest! A quick, fun and easy to play set collection game of town building. While a slightly overused theme and setting, the mechanics of this game work well to produce an easy to understand, quick to play game that still feels like it rewards strategic play.

Last Week: Also don’t forget last few week’s feature game, Hare & Tortoise, which will all available to play from now on!


To Play: We have an extensive, ever growing library of over 160 titles including;

    Forbidden Desert is not an easy game. I picked this up like a month ago and play it fairly regularly with the family, we get killed every time! It is a lot of fun though!

    Definitely need to try come down one day!
