Frenetic enjoys successful Board Game Club debut

Published on: 22nd June 2018

The team behind the new word-race Frenetic were special guests at Board Game Club on Wednesday evening.

Graeme and Fiona Fraser Bell – the brother and sister team behind the guess-the-accent game Accentuate, commented: “You can make over 10,000 words using the letters from the periodic table. In Frenetic, you race to create words using the element symbols in play. The first to reach 1000 points wins. We were so encouraged to see players coming back to the table to play again and try and improve on their score.”

While comparatively new to the market, Frenetic is enjoying continued success after non-stop interest at UK Games Expo in Birmingham. Not surprisingly, other Expo purchases also found favour at Board Game Club. Co-founder, Peter Jenkinson, commented: “It’s important to put new games on the menu. We always want to have a mix: games you love, stuff you’ve forgotten and things you never knew existed.”

Among the additions last night were Coiledspring’s Okiya; High Society from Osprey Games and new cult favourite, The Mind… The latter sees players aiming for a near-telepathic rapport while laying down cards in ascending order.

Board Game Club continues to be a can’t-miss date in the diaries of those working in the toy and games industry, and enthusiasts alike. With a carefully-chosen blend of card, dice, party, board and novelty games, the evening lets people meet, mingle and play in a relaxing, informal way. The next Board Game Club takes place on Wednesday 18th July 2018 at Century Club, Soho. Visit for further details.
