Raffle to Win our Giant Tsuro

https://www.facebook.com/groups/UKboardgametrade/permalink/2396641313953531/

The proceeds will be split between Mind (25%) and Herefordshire Mind (75%) HBG fundraise for Herefordshire Mind and raised an awesome £1790 last year.

This would be perfect for some gaming clubs, shops, cafes or anyone with enough room to play it really.

Ticket price £2. You can buy as many tickets as you like but please note in the comments here how many tickets you have “purchased” when you donate.

Win our beloved first child and own a piece of board gaming history!

Giant Tsuro was originally made by my best man for our wedding, to be used instead of our first dance, as we are both introverts. This is perfect for game clubs, board game cafes, conventions and charity days.

This is the first out of three Giant games, games we make to raise money for charity and awareness of our wonderful hobby. We also have Hey that’s my fish and 6ft tall Terror in Meeple city.

It is made of B grade carpet tiles and black car spray paint and cost us around £40 to make. It is nearly indestructible but it is very heavy. It does sometimes leave black marks on your hands and does show some mild wear.

I can deliver to the UK games expo or happy to have an excuse to visit another game club, I’ll even teach it. (Delivery range to be discussed) We have taken our giant games to Airecon, Dragon Daze and Great Indoors.

It takes 3m by 3m of open space to play it and we play by the full rules except for recommending the players have two tiles and not three as they are heavy. An umpire to call out turn order and refresh tiles is recommended but left unmanned it gets a lot of play as well.

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.
