CHARITY | Play games, have fun and raise money for mental health charity Herefordshire Mind.
Herefordshire Board Gamers are running their Sixth, annual, charity board game event on 16-17th May 2019 – 11am
New this year a second day! Day one is the same old amazing show at the Core, prizes, giant games, raffles, demos and auctions. Day two is at the Herdsmans quiet open gaming, we may have RPGs and some play to win contests carried over but this is low key simple gaming.

Donation page to come!
Everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t played a card or board game for years. Modern board games come in all shapes and sizes; whether it’s a 10-minute game full of bluffing and laughter or a lengthy strategy game complete with lots of decisions.
Why not go along and let the experts teach you a new game or even bring along a nostalgic classic to share? If you have fond memories of Risk, Pokémon or Rummy, or even if you’re an Angry Birds addict these guys and girls can probably find a board game to scratch that itch.
Please check out the website at www.herefordshireboardgamers.co.uk for lots more information on this wonderful, fun and educational hobby. It’s a great way to connect with friends and family and get away from screens!
Free entry but Suggested £5 donation to Herefordshire Mind . All proceeds to charity. Venue kindly donated by the core
Many of the best board and card games aren’t available on the high street so you may not have heard of them, if you want to learn more we’ll have friendly games teachers on hand to get you started, or bring along your favorite classics and enjoy the nostalgia.
We have raised around £1700 on the day for a gift aid year total of £3346 last year and £1250 the year before and want to raise even more this year!
We had £2000 of prizes won! Including three Chinese raffles where a single ticket won £200 to £400 of prizes (value not RRP)
We are improving our signage, information areas and ways to identify our volunteers. That’s about all we are changing from 2019.
