TtT: High Society: London – 17th September

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’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!

Last Week: Also don’t forget last weeks’ feature game, Mind the Gap,  which will be available to play from now on!

Tournaments: Every first Tuesday of the Month, Bez, of Stuff By Bez, 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 – from both the Call of the Archons & Age of Ascension sets, will only be available on Tuesdays by request – just ask Tim and he will gladly teach you using the four decks we have for Tabletop Tuesday.
