Reminder that Monday night on line board gaming is still going on. We start at 7:30pm every Monday. We use the Discord link that is in the announcement section on here to chat. We usually play on Board Game Arena or Yucata. It is not the same but better than not playing at all. ... See MoreSee Less

New edition of Mijnlieff! If you've not played this wonderful little 2-player, Hive-esque game, then there's no better time.

A colleague has asked for suggestions for boardgames for children, around 4 to 7 years old. They have only played monopoly and similar.

Give me your best suggestions please!

Praga Caput Regni is another hit by Suchy. Yeah it’s a bit of a point salad but one with a very tight 16 actions per game.

(One that Phil Lee and the Friday night gang will enjoy when normality returns to the world)
