Tabletop Tuesday: Century: Spice Road – 25th July 2017

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 our feature game is: Century: Spice Road

This week’s game is a great new game that was getting a lot of buzz at this year’s UK Games Expo where it was shown ahead of release. Many people compare it to Splendor and while it does have some similarities, it is definitely different enough to be of interest. A spice trading themed game of engine building, hand management, card drafting and deck building. Fairly easy to learn but difficult to master, should be a good game for experienced board gamers and also a good gateway game for new people too.

Come along, try the game out and possibly WIN a copy for FREE for doing so!

Last Week: Also don’t forget last week’s feature game, Dark Souls: The Board Game , which will all available to play from now on!

    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!

Mystic Vale provides an innovative twist on the deck-building genre with a card-sleeving method, but a lack of player interaction hampers it.

Iron Crypticle isn't a bad game; it works well enough and there is sure to be an audience for it, but Rik is not it.
