Hey all! We’re almost halfway through January and we’ve been working hard to up our selection of board games for sale. Many of you will be well aware that this isn’t our main gig – we want to get people in here as soon as possible playing our huge games library, but in the meantime – we need to keep the lights on! Purchasing a game from us is really easy! We accept all most cards through the stripe payment gateway which is safe and easy to use. Orders are processed on the same day and either posted (nationally), delivered contact-free (locally) or are made available for click & collect at the store (currently Wednesday – Sunday, 9:30am – 3:30pm).

As pledged in our Kickstarter, we’re now an accredited “real living wage” employer! Board games are always great fun- but so many of our guests positive experiences are carefully-curated by our wonderful staff. Their tireless enthusiasm and hard-work has helped establish us as an awesome place to visit, despite us still being in our infancy! Our collective goal for this year is to go above and beyond our Kickstarter goals and establish ourselves as a shining beacon of fun and positivity on Burton Road. Despite the challenges surrounding the pandemic (and particularly local lockdown rules) we’ve managed to gather some real momentum, and can now proudly boast that we have over 200 members.

To that end, we’re investing in our staff’s well-being by bringing our…
