It is great to find such an inclusive, friendly group. We were welcomed and made to feel very comfortable. There was always someone on hand to explain how to play the games.

HBG is really a community and we are all supportive of each other and accept one another for who we as individuals are. I personally find gaming to have a relaxing, Mindfulness effect on me where my mind quietens, thus increasing my mental health and well-being
Woman 30s COMMUNITY REGULAR
Everyone involved and attending were so friendly and helpful. There was not one person I came across who was not willing to help or share their time. Would we return next time: MOST DEFINITELY!!! This weekend was an absolute first for us and most definitely not a last.

I think the thing I liked the absolute most was that the event was sensitive to mental health, identity and non-cis personas without being sanctimonious or pretentious about it. It made both me and my partner really comfortable and able to freely enjoy the event.

Woman 20s UK GAMES EXPO 2022 BOARD GAME ORGANISERS KNOWLEDGE SHARE
Last year I was introduced to online games. At my age….64… I thought it would be snakes and ladders. I can hear the intake of breath. No these are fun ones, some a twist on old games, mystery, team games, the list is long. But most of all the people are genuine soles eager to help and encourage any and all.

The Herefordshire board gamers have had such a positive impact on our family.
We like playing games but find after playing the same ones we end up not playing at all. And with the rising costs of living it’s just not financially viable for us to pay out for new games all the time. The group have given us back that quality family time by allowing us to try new games for free. So much choice and very friendly, knowledgeable people running it. Even our 16 year old has started getting a game out ready to play once the younger kids are in bed. It’s been lovely having time together. The kids are excited when it comes to ‘game swap time’ too. It weirdly reminds me of the excitement I used to feel as a child going to blockbuster and being able to choose from so many items!
“Herefordshire Board Gamers Library is an absolute gem for board game enthusiasts like us, and it’s quickly become a go-to destination for fun and entertainment. In a world dominated by screens and virtual experiences, Herefordshire Board Gamers Library is like a breath of fresh air. It’s a reminder that the simple joy of sitting down with friends, rolling dice, and strategizing on a board is timeless and priceless.
The first thing that struck us was the incredible range and sheer number of games available. It’s like entering a magical realm of cardboard and strategy. From classic family games to intricate Eurogames, there’s something here for every taste and skill level. Every game we have borrowed from the library is in excellent condition. It’s clear that the organizers and volunteers put their hearts into ensuring that the games are in top-notch condition. It makes the entire gaming experience feel really enjoyable. The organizers and volunteers, they deserve a standing ovation! Their passion for board games is infectious, whether you’re a seasoned gamer looking for a challenge or a beginner in need of some guidance, they’re always there to help. And let’s not forget Adam, his recommendations are excellent. The costs of some of the premium board games make them hard to purchase, the library lets you try before you buy. We have made several purchases after borrowing games (and finding that we couldn’t live without them). So, next time you have some free time check out the library, and I am sure that like us, you won’t be disappointed!”
