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Giant Tsuro was originally made by my best man for our wedding, to be used instead of our first dance, as we are both introverts.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.
More information on the giant games here
Our giant games can be seen here on the 18th May 2019
Here is a peak behind the curtain on how we made our giant games
We are just back from Airecon an excellent gaming convention up north. It is not one of the largest in the UK and features loads of open gaming spaces. As well as hosting our giant games.
We unveiled Hey that’s my fish and for most of the weekend it was played with along side and at the same time as Tsuro.
See this gallery for more info http://herefordshireboardgamers.co.uk/hey-thats-my-fish/
We left the giant games unmanned but with a help yourself sign in the evenings and they were played with just as much and always left tidy! Gamer are great.
We also managed to catch up with and make some new gaming friends and get a game of my shelf of shame. Sidreal confluence which his an awesome hot mess which none of us can decide if we love or hate 😀
It’s two months to go to our main charity day, the work has stepped up a gear and we are reaching out to games shops, publishers and other similar businesses for prizes and to help share our event.
Phase 2 will be local businesses, if you can help please get in touch
Also a reminder April 14th is our first all day sunday game which replaces the 21st for this month only.
Don’t panic! We’ve just enbiggened another game, the crazy team have spent over 100 hours making this. We’ve managed to grow it from 2 inches to nearly 6 foot tall, and kept about 70% of the orginal rules. Total cost is probably less than the base game .
This dwarfs giant Tsuro which needs 3m by 3m of floor to play it. This is going to be need about 5m.
There is some place holder art to replace but it will be ready for 19th May https://www.facebook.com/
