Virtual Charity game day tomorrow!

We’ve spent a week testing all sorts of platforms from playing games online and chatting. We posted our finding in our a couple of guides.

The technology we’ve chosen for now is Facebook and Discord.

We’ll be using a number of gaming services including Tabletopia and Jackbox.

If you want to be ready please,
find and follow us on facebook.
Install the free discord on your phone or PC.
Join our discord
Install Tabletopia via Steam, (both are free)
Jackbox only requires a browser and play one nearly any device.
Also do get your microphone and headset/ head phone out.
If you have a second device get that ready too.

We’d love your support and feedback and if this work we will try and do more mini game sessions over the next few months and maybe into the future, as well as passing on our knowledge. Also do be patient with us!

We will be playing all sorts of games as well as helping you organise games! Give it a go and worse case you will learn some new technology and a few mild swear words.

Currently we don’t have a platform to share the webcams of everyone (which is great I hate being on webcam) but we are investigating skype and zoom.

Finally do use our platforms and our knowledge to run your own meet ups and events.

Finally finally please can you test these links and let me know if they don’t work for you

We need you! Volunteers, sponsors and advertising help?

We are run by volunteers for you! To provide game nights, sessions a community and now a free game lending library. We also aim to give back by boosting and supporting other clubs and raising money for charity.

We can’t do it with out! We need your help advertising, please share our events on social media, in your work place and communities.

We also need prizes, if you have contacts please let me know or refer us. We know times are challenging for all but we really do make the donations count and also try hard to pay our sponsor back with social media shouts and for our top sponsors inclusion in our life size games!

So do you want to know what games we actually play?

Check this new page to see the list of the games we played on each of our games nights!

Hopefully it is interesting to help you remember the name of the game you liked you played last time or just to see the types of games we regularly play.

We tend to play shorter games so we can mix the groups up, be social and play with everyone and end the night on a big social game of codenames or something.

We have a new home The Imperial!

Imperial Hereford is now our Thursday home (along with Sundays at the Beer in Hand) I’ve have a few good chats with Craig the landlord who is keen to support us going forward and is hopefully going to pop up and play with us.

A few rules updates:
+Supervised under 18s are allowed in the function room until closing and before 9pm in the bar. (As a club we’ll need to monitor and see how this goes but I welcome all gamers young and old. I am happy to take suggestions on this as I have a potty mouth at times)
+Outside food is allowed in the function room.
+The is no room charge (currently) I am still going to collect voluntary donations to cover limited club costs like tea, coffee, milk, tablecloths etc.
+We are more than welcome to play downstairs in the bar and we can have section for us, for now we’ve voted to use the function room. (On Thursdays and quiet nights.)

I am looking forward to this relationship and having a stable home for the next year. (If we out grow the Imperial on a regular basis I’ll be surprised!)

Third Beer in Hand Sunday Meeting! Quiet but great fun

Great evening in the beer in hand 8 gamers 2 new faces. Lower numbers than we are used probably because of the good weather and it being a bank holiday.

Less people mean we could all play one game which was brilliant.

We played  Mascarade (Yay a new game for me! I love learning games as well as teaching them!) . Codenames. Mysterium, 7th Hero

It was lovely to see new faces, from 13 meets we’ve only had one session without a new face, and most of you lovely people keep coming back! I guess we are doing something right…

Thank you  Beer in Hand
