Board Game Club celebrates The Board Game Book

Published on: 1st July 2019

The Kickstarter-funded book lists game reviewer and editor Owen Duffy’s pick of games from the past year.

Guests at the recent Board Game Club night enjoyed an additional bonus when they were given the chance to win a brand-new tome; The Board Game Book. Having backed the 259-page anthology on Kickstarter, Board Game Club raffled five copies at the ever-popular games evening in London.

With one of the authors, Owen Duffy, in attendance, and complimentary prosecco to welcome guests, the evening saw each attendee take a playing card in place of the usual prize ticket. After being picked at random, prize-winners then got the chance to meet Owen, who happily signed the books. The Board Game Book not only explores great releases but also features stunning photography and interviews with inventors of popular games.

According to Board Game Club co-founder Lesley Singleton, backing the book was a no brainer: “As a reviewer and editor, Owen Duffy’s opinion is always informative and fair. As soon as we saw this stunning book on Kickstarter, we wanted to back it. We’re very proud to have the author here to answer questions and dedicate the prizes.”

Now in its sixth year, Board Game Club continues to offer ‘can’t-miss’ dates for the diary. The ever-popular evenings have a wide variety of card, party, and novelty games for enthusiasts and industry insiders to play in a relaxed, informal way. For more information, visit
