Introducing our star prize and sponsor!

**Trumpet noises** Introducing our golden Sponsor and star prizes Basically Wooden.

In addition to helping in our secret special project, Andrew and Sue from Basically Wooden, which is a Hereford based company making high quality board game accessories, from organisers to full boxes to card and token holders to make your life easier. They really care about their product and are wonderful people.

They have offered not 1 but 3 dice towers, a pair of card trays and token holders which clip together (magnets) and one of the latest products a combined card and token holder, scooped for easy access and some where to play your hand of cards for easy viewing and access. Perfect for those with mobility issues or dyspraxics like me who end up with hand fatigue. (The photo shows a built one which is mine, two flat packed ones are actually included)

These accessories really help keeping games flowing, the card holders can serve as a great first player marker as you pass the deck of event cards and you place it on the table with a satisfying clunk.

That’s not all. They have also provided a £25 gift voucher which covers most of their game inserts and accessories.

There are great items, but can be a luxury so this is a perfect chance to make your gaming betterer.

Please please share the event and my posts we need all the publicity we can get, our prize pool is worth well over £1000 and we’ve had nearly £1000 of free services.

Basically Wooden Review: Scythe and Village insert.

This isn’t a full review, just a few thoughts and lots of picture of building some inserts. Basically Wooden make fine accessories for board games and you can buy them pre build or DIY

The build process was quite easy, only one part was fiddly and took a few attempts, it took a whole ball of elastic bands and best part of a bottle of PVA glue.

Once built they make organising, sorting and getting the game to the table much quicker. The Scythe insert is brilliant. The village insert isn’t quite as polished but still makes getting the game on the table a breeze, but this an early Basically Wooden insert and it shows how much the company and product has matured. They are active and listen to the community, we are lucky to have them in the county

A quick gallery of the build process for the Inserts / game tidies. You can buy them complete or DIY. This is for Scythe…

A few photos of the Christmas open day at Basically Wooden’s not so secret HQ, They went up late to Facebook and I’m posting them to here even later.. oh well 😀

I hope these are of interest to you, it’s great to have a local business doing well and really getting into the gaming scene.

I know it's April…. In December the workshop doors were flung open and then closed again 'cos it was cold, mince pies…
