Q. Who are your events for?
A. We want to be inclusive to everyone, but to come on a board gaming holiday you're probably already connected to the modern gaming hobby, or coming with friends that are? If you're really new, drop into Discord and have a chat, and we can make plans to help introduce you to people and gaming.
Q. What games can I play?
A. There will be a huge selection of board games available to play. Our guests bring games they want to play, and we have a library including many classics and a selection of the latest releases.
Q. But really, which specific games?
A. Check out the galleries for examples, or drop onto discord and have a chat. Really, there will be lots.
Q. How about roleplaying games (RPGs)?
A. Gamers need to game! Although we're not organising RPGs, Game Masters and their player groups are welcome to book to come and use table space.
Q. But Matt, this clashes with *other awesome event*.
A. We do our best not to bump anyone locally, and we encourage and support everyone's participation in similar events across the UK. But there are only so many weekends in a year. Everything clashes with something.
Q. How much are tickets?
A. See the FAQ section for the specific event.
