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 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 is our feature game is: Keyforge

Last week we had one of the hottest boardgames currently in Tabletop gaming and this week we have one of the hottest card games! So much so that Starter Set are rarer than Smurf poop and have been sold out in shops for months, with some sets being sold for up to twice their retail price! But fortunately we are here to save the day! While we don't have any Starter Sets, I have been playing without one and can teach everyone how to do so.

Made by the seminal game designer, Richard Garfield – designer of King of Tokyo and perhaps more relevantly, Magic the Gathering and Netrunner. Keyforge is quite different as every individual deck of cards has a unique name and a unique selection of cards. A really interesting game that is one of my current favourites. Come learn how to play and be in with a chance to win your own deck.

N.B: There is a free App that can help you keep track of the all the values needed to play through the game. Just search for "Keyforge" on the Amazon App Store.

Last Week: Also don't forget the last few weeks' feature games, including; Hero Realms Coimbra 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!
