Play Board Games in Leamington Spa Tonight - 9th November 2017

BoardSilly Games Club meet at the Newbold Comyn Arms from 8:00 tonight.

Come along and have fun playing board games, card games, dice games and (occasionally) dexterity / skill based games, from a selection owned by the club or brought to the pub by you and other people who turn up.

We usually play "Euro games" that don't have player elimination as a game mechanism, so all players  are involved throughout, and you aren't twiddling your thumbs waiting for everyone else to finish.

We welcome new people who would like to play games and we explain how each game works for those who have not played before or not played recently and want a rules refresher.

Bring some games (optional), money for drinks and 50p subs (unless it's your first visit).

Have fun,

John E

Play Board Games in Leamington Spa Tonight - 26th October 2017

BoardSilly Games Club meet tonight at the Newbold Comyn Arms from 8:00.

It will be busier than usual in the pub tonight. Last week we were told that there will be a reunion of ex-BBC engineers, so expect a large crowd. They might reminisce about when two of them were married - the ceremony was OK but the reception was brilliant! 

Bring games that you want to play, money for drinks and 50 pence subs for the new games kitty.

Bring anything you'd like to play, or just turn up and hope that someone else does.

I might not make it out but I hope to see you later,
John E

Vote against the evil empire for Star Wars Day at BoardSilly Tonight

May the fourth be with you
Don't forget to vote before you come to the pub tonight. In the interest of neutrality I can't suggest who you vote for, so I won't LABOUR the point.
Speaking of being against an evil empire, I'm bringing a Star Wars Dice game to BoardSilly.
I will also bring Democrazy and Quo Vadis - my usual election themed games. I may also bring Kremlin but I have not played it for a while. Anyone got Junta?
Sadly we won't have time for Die Macher, but it is very good - perhaps a games session at a weekend is in order.
Anyway, come to the Newbold Comyn Arms for 8:00. Bring games, bring money for drinks & political bribes & 50p for subs (not the nuclear kind). Anyone got Supremacy?
See you later,
John E

Will I win a game tonight?
You have to be in it to win it  - so come on down with games, money for drinks, 50p subs, and of course, a winning smile.
See you there soon,
