Party games old, new and not yet released help Board Game Club move home

Published on: 25th May 2018

A game in which players drop geometric shapes in a frame became a runaway hit when Board Game Club moved to a new home on Wednesday night.

Drop It – a colourful release from Thames & Kosmos – launched this month and looks set to become a firm favourite.

Board Game Club co-founder, Lesley Singleton, commented: “It’s been in demand all evening. And not because it’s new… watching the chaos when you drop your pieces in the frame is addictive! Other games on the Board Game Club menu at Century Club Soho included the evergreen Rummikub, while modern classics Telestrations and Dobble proved popular with visitors old and new. A few curious new plays also drew crowds, including That’s a Question, from the creator of Codenames, as well as The Mind, Decrypto and the Spiel des Jahres-nominated Azul.”

Co-founder Peter Jenkinson, commented: “We made some great friends on our first night at the venue, a number of Century Club members popped their heads round the door just to see what the fuss was about, then stayed for hours.”

Board Game Club continues to be a must-do date in the calendars of games enthusiasts, as well as those working in the toy and games industry. With a hand-picked blend of card, dice, party, board and novelty games, the ever-popular evening lets people meet, mingle and discover games in a relaxing, informal way.

The next Board Game Club takes place on Wednesday 20th June at Century Club, Soho.

Lesley added: “We’ll be shining a spotlight on Frenetic, the new word game from the design-duo behind Accentuate, and looking forward to sharing whatever gems we find at UK Games Expo next week!”

Brands interested in getting a game on the menu should email BoardGameClub@PlaytimePR.com for details.
