Basically Wooden Review: Scythe and Village insert.

This isn’t a full review, just a few thoughts and lots of picture of building some inserts. Basically Wooden make fine accessories for board games and you can buy them pre build or DIY

The build process was quite easy, only one part was fiddly and took a few attempts, it took a whole ball of elastic bands and best part of a bottle of PVA glue.

Once built they make organising, sorting and getting the game to the table much quicker. The Scythe insert is brilliant. The village insert isn’t quite as polished but still makes getting the game on the table a breeze, but this an early Basically Wooden insert and it shows how much the company and product has matured. They are active and listen to the community, we are lucky to have them in the county

A quick gallery of the build process for the Inserts / game tidies. You can buy them complete or DIY. This is for Scythe…

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.
