We are also updating the website and creating a new area for our charity work as it is an important part of the club, who we are and what we do. I am also creating galleries and copying across some legacy content from Facebook. So there will be some blank pages as I work on them.
Any feedback on the website is welcome!
The charity photos are up, the venue was sooo good, spacious, well lit and accessible!
Giant games at our Charity day. We are welcome back two favourite oversized games, Tsuro and Jenga.
We are working very hard to give you one more massive surprise a game so large it will make Tsuro look tiny! Watch this space.

The Imperial has been a great host for us and have just started a game shelf so as a thank you we’ve put together a selection of games from our recommended list to get them started!
The kit also contains a charity shop bargain copy of Carcassonne donated by one of our members. I think it is a great kit, you have dexterity, word play, dice and push your luck, bluffing and reactions. All of the games are robust enough to loose a few pieces, easy to teach and look great and exciting.
