Tabletop Tuesday: Pocket Mars – 23rd of October

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: Pocket Mars

Not to worry! This is not the result of a accidentally melted chocolate bar sent to mess up your trousers! Pocket Mars is actually an area control game of hand management that packs a lot of strategy into its tiny box! Help early colonists settle on the Red planet by squeezing as many of them as possible into your settlements.

Come along and see what you think of the game and possibly win a copy just by trying it out on the night!

Last Week: Also don’t forget the last few weeks’ feature games, Senryaku  &  Pyramid of the Sun, which will all available to play from now on!


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