Spin Master’s first takeover of Board Game Club created instant favourites on 19th September.
Guests were captivated by the Cat Game, mesmerised by Jumanji, grossed out by Pimple Pete, sucked in by Santorni, found their silly side with The Sock Game, as well as discovering the irresistible strategy game Otrio.
According to Board Game Club founder Lesley Singleton, Otrio’s instant appeal is exciting: “It’s not often you see every table wanting to try out the same game. Otrio looks stunning, though, so it grabs attention – and it’s instantly addictive.”
The Spin Master takeover also offered regulars a chance to see the new version of The Sock Game. The undisputed hit of 2016’s UK Toy Fair returned to Board Game Club with one of its inventors, Nick Green. After an extraordinary journey, the appearance felt like something of a homecoming. Lesley commented: “It’s fantastic to have the new-look Sock Game here. Our guests absolutely loved the original, so we’re all excited to see it reaching a bigger audience – it really deserves to.”
Dharaa Patel from Spin Master commented: “We are delighted that our latest Spin Master Games proved such a hit with the Board Game Club guests – there really is something for everyone and that shone through at the event. It was a great night and there was a real buzz about the place. We are looking forward to a busy and exciting Christmas period.”
Now in its fifth year, Board Game Club continues to feature card, party, and novelty games, providing “can’t-miss” dates in the diary. The ever-popular evenings let games enthusiasts and industry insiders meet, mingle and play in a relaxed, informal way. Board Game Club returns to Century Club, Soho, on Wednesday 17th October. The guest list is open now.
