Board Game Club’s fifth birthday sees fastest-filling night ever

Published on: 9th April 2019

The ever-popular evening reached capacity in just 29 minutes last Thursday, 4th April.

With a raft of hit games on offer, guests enjoyed not only old favourites and complimentary prosecco, but also new games from a host of inventors.

Among the titles making their debut were the string-twisting novelty Ztringz, and Tactic’s timer-turning, reflex-testing Ninja Rush. The fifth anniversary also offered up old favourites including Telestrations, Drop It and Mastermind – the first game ever played at Board Game Club. This brought back memories for co-founder Lesley Singleton who said: “When a room this size fills up in 30 minutes, it’s hard to believe it started with a handful of people in a Shoreditch basement.”

Board Game Club’s other co-founder, Toyologist Pete Jenkinson, agrees: “We set this up informally, as a way to get industry people together for a few games and a drink, but it’s grown into a really popular event. Every month sees new faces join the regulars, and it’s a great mix; inventors, publishers, distributors, journalists, and people who just love games.”

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

Board Game Club returns to Century Club, Soho, on Thursday 8th May – contact boardgameclub@playtimepr.com to join the guest list.
