Board Game Club brought back its monthly residency at the Century Club in London on Tuesday night after a long wait.
The crowd of more almost 60 people included plenty of former regulars as well as a healthy number of tabletop fans experiencing the adult games night for the first time.
After a Covid-induced break, the club returned with a revamped look and an expanded team.
Lesley Singleton, of Playtime PR, said: “It was great to see so many familiar faces after such a long break from hosting these events, as well as lots of new people from both within and outside the industry, all eager to play, chat and explore new games together.”
Hits of the night included Funko’s Rear Window game, as well as the company’s recently reimagined Cranium, which marks the game’s 25th anniversary. Guests also discovered the two-player Zensu from Cheatwell Games – a beautiful and interesting twist on games like chess and draughts – which proved a popular play with couples on the night.
Presenter/DJ-turned-games-designer Matt Edmondson brought along his ever-growing portfolio of games, while a team from Bubblegum Stuff enjoyed its first trip to Board Game Club, which included titles from its own shelves such as Chunky Monkey Business.
Board Game Club takes place on the first Tuesday of every month at Century Club, Shaftesbury Avenue, London. Tickets are free and can be booked here for the next event on Tuesday, 6th June.
There is also a Board Game Club mailing list to keep informed.
Board Game Club aims to bring together industry bods, influencers and enthusiasts through a love of tabletop gaming. The nights feature a mix of fun-to-play, sociable card, party and dice games and have been used as testing grounds and launchpads for an array of titles since 2014.
