Bit Bored? Try Board Game Night!

One of the best things about a gaming club such as ours is it allows our members to immerse themselves in a new world. Be it fighting a universe expanding war in the 41st millennium or donning the mantle of a fantastical character to join a party of others on a role playing adventure.

Everyone has their own preferences. Someone who likes playing regimented miniatures games may not be as keen on the flexibility nature of a role playing campaign. Others like to paint and create, while some just like to turn up and join in a game without any planning!

One thing that I’m sure we can all agree on, is it’s too easy just to stick to what you know. And while that is totally understandable, it can limit your ‘scope’ of what is actually available at the club.

To help break down some barriers, provide opportunities for members of the club to interact more and to give everyone a taste of something different to what they are normally used to, we would like to make the last Wednesday of every month ‘Board Game Night’.

So what does this mean? Starting on Wednesday the 31st of May, we will have a number of volunteers running various board games that anyone can join. Games will range in complexity and theme as well a variety of short and longer games. We will have a ‘menu’ available for members as they come in the club so they can see what is on offer so they can easily join a game that they fancy the look of!

But what about all those games of Warhammer and Role Playing sessions that you would normally play? Well, this would be a good opportunity to break from the norm and play something different with folks you may not have chatted to for a while.

We hope a lot of you guys like the sound of this and are keen to support it. We will share the list of games available to everyone ahead of the 31st itself so members can have a think about what they would like to be involved in, but we will encourage as many of our members to give this a go and help make it a permanent fixture of our monthly calendar.
