We will be updating Flickr which these images this weekend.
Flickr includes tagging of photographs so it is easier to search, we have over 500 pictures of games and gaming on flickr so do show you friends and family what modern games and gaming actually look like!
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Giant Tsuro was originally made by my best man for our wedding, to be used instead of our first dance, as we are both introverts.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.
