Raiders of the Game Cupboard XLI
By Oridyne

The Forty First Board Game & RPG event.

Our next event will be on 6th January 2018.

Hopefully you will have the time to join us for a day of escapism Smiley A perfect chance to escape the doldrums of that first week back at work and a chance to break out those new games...
See you all for our next event. The Committee

Saturday, Jan 6th 2018, 10:00 am till 8:00 pm

A full day of gaming with plenty for everyone. New players are always welcome and the organisers are on hand to help you find a game.

To find us we are the ones with Name Badges and Raiders T-Shirts or hover near the Ticket Desk. A wide variety of games are usually played at these events including Boardgames, Roleplaying Games, Card Games, Miniature Games and a host of others.

The venue is a good sized hall large enough to accommodate many gaming tables.

There is usually a good mix of new and old games on offer with most attendees bringing some of their own collection.

Monthly Gaming at the Shop 2nd Sunday of every month
By Sally
Starts at 12 noon 'til late.

We have plenty of tables for playing board games and card games, and a bit of wargames space too. New players welcome as well as our normal friendly regulars, and a large games library on site. The Burton Bridge Brewery is just over the road for those who want a pint with their game, tea and coffee are free at the shop and Aldi and Family Bargains are close by for those who want snacks.

Parking at the supermarket is still restricted on Sundays and the council car parks still charge, but there is plenty of legal on road parking and other good alternatives nearby, ask for advice.
