Fantastic atmosphere in the Arena yesterday! Once again we had a multitude of players of all manner of tabletop fare enjoying their jam alongside each other, sharing our ample space in perfect harmony! Just what we love to see!
Of course, a good portion of players were attending the Sunday Board Game Social (more of which below), but we also had a large D&D group continuing their campaign for a good many hours… plus KINGS OF WAR and WH40K wargamers from as far afield as Staffordshire and Buckinghamshire… as well as some more locally-based battlers, including some staff of Nottingham’s very own Warlord Games!
At the Social, our lovely board gamers gave a warm welcome to another newbie yesterday… and everyone must have made a great impression, because Callum, new to Nottingham as well as to LeadBelt, grabbed himself a year’s LBGA membership! Cheers Callum – we all look forward to plenty more gaming with you in the months ahead!
With so much going on across the gaming floor, and so many visitors to look after and chat with, I’m pretty sure I didn’t note down all of what was played by the Social crowd…
Here’s a good flavour for you…
- HERO REALMS
- SPLENDOR DUEL
- PORT ROYAL
- THE TAVERNS OF TIEFENTHAL
- HANSA TEUTONICA
- SMALL WORLD
- STONE AGE
…and one of the longer games, played at yesterday’s Social session by Aviva, Alex, James, Nathan and Will, was TERRAFORMING MARS. It’s one I’m almost ashamed to say I haven’t yet played… but the group’s clear enjoyment has convinced me that’s something I need to rectify very soon!
If there are games on your must-play wish list, why not drop by one of our Social sessions and meet people who will help make those wishes come true? There’s always a big bunch of awesome and friendly gamers at every session – Thursdays from 5 pm and Sundays from noon.
We hope to see you soon.
