You don’t get get good at any hobbies straight away. First time you play golf, drive, learn a language you won’t be excellent at it straight away. Hopefully you enjoy the process of learning, enjoy the experience and the group of people you are learning with. You have an end goal in mind.
We love sharing our hobby, teaching people new games and showing them new things. Providing a free social safe space. We try hard to make sure our events are inclusive and supportive. Sometimes we don’t have enough teachers or the game may not be 100% your cup of tea.
Do your best, have fun, enjoy the experience, don’t expect to win your first games, us game teachers don’t expect to win either we are too busy teaching! Our mutual aim is to be have fun and all players at the the table can contribute to that.
The point of this message is, if you try a new game or pop along to an event for the first time and you don’t quite get the game. That’s fine, let us know and we’ll do our best to find a more suitable game or explain things again. Set your expectations to enjoy the experience, try new things.
There are also 1000s of games out there, I personally don’t like extrovert charade style games, it may take a while to find what kind of games you love. Give it some time.
We love seeing people come back time and time again, master games and enjoy learning new games, even getting confident to teach newer players.
We are very lucky to have new faces most weeks, most come back, some don’t which is fine, but we don’t want to fail you. So please give us feedback, ideas and comments, we’d love help and support to. We want to improve.
See some of you this evening!
