Terror in Hereford City!

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/events/358455677932846/

There will be a lot more suprises and ‘easter eggs’ hidden in the game too

Welcome to Hereford city, the cathedral is over 6ft tall.

Our amazing prize haul!

The majority of our prize pool! 30 Board games. Basically Wooden have provided 9 gaming accessories and a £25 gift voucher. We also have vouchers donated by other awesome, local businesses and food and drink to win.
 
 
Our sponsors have been incredibly generous and have donated well over £1000 in prizes and just under £1000 in services.

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.

Games we play!

Event updates: Saturday games August 26th and September 23rd

Event updates:

Great Indoors is this weekend! https://great-indoors.co.uk/event 

On to club news:

First Thursday from 6.30 at the Imperial.

Going well no changes but we welcome your feedback.

Third Sunday at the Beer in Hand

Change of time to 3pm to 9pm to match pub opening times. Going well with an overlap to Thursday nights but some different faces too.

Saturdays:

August 26th and Saturday 23rd. 11am to 11pm.All day game sessions at the Imperial. Similar to the mega charity day but much more informal. There might be a surprise large game or side attraction for those that want to but generally just a chance to sit and play some of the longer games.

Mega Charity day

I am already planning the mega annual charity day for 2018 it will be May again for Herefordshire Mind unless we get any strong objections. I will be looking for volunteers to help me put up posters, drum up prizes, prep the venue, teach games and advertise the event on social media. If you are interesting please let me know now. I want to start organising sooner so we can pace ourselves.

At or around our Birthday in July 2018 we will vote for a new charity of the year for 2018-2019. I am using our Birthday as the Charity anniversary rather than the calendar year as it allows for simpler organisation.
