Amazing weekend for sponsors and prizes

Four new sponsors have kindly donated prizes this weekend, and I think this is probably all, although the exact prizes donated does need to be agreed.

The new prizes are 5 copies of Ivor the engine, by local designer Tony Boydell. A game about collecting sheep based in Wales.

Our 10th evening public games night was a blast

We had 17 players playing from 6.30pm to around 11. The night flowed well with players forming group and games flowing naturally. We tend to player shorter 90 minute games which allows people to try new games or play with new people. As usual we ended on an hilarious few rounds of Codenames.

For once I was too busy and didn’t take any photographs, but I saw the following games being played:

Darkest Dealings, Istanbul, Isle of Sky, Inis, Stone Age, Lancaster, Star Fluxx and Terra.  ( I am sure there were plenty more I missed)

An awesome night lots of laughter, good games and mild shenanigans. We are really growing an awesome community and family.
