Thames & Kosmos returns for Games Night at the Museum PT II

Published on: 22nd August 2017

Games manufacturer invited back to Maidstone Museum following the success of the July games night.

The latest evening of board gaming fun, on Thursday 31st August, is a link to the Museum’s current exhibition Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered, a history of board games that’s beginning its tour of the UK from the Maidstone Museum.

The museum’s public programming manager Lyn Palmer commented: “The first games night was a massive success – players from 18 to 80 turned up, joined in and enjoyed themselves. Thames & Kosmos were on hand to explain and encourage and did a great job throughout the evening. We’re looking forward to our second event”.

On the playlist are Thames & Kosmos classics including Kahuna, Lost Cities, Imhotep and Dimension alongside some of its latest arrivals including Word Slam and Kerala.

Joanna Drage, sales director at Thames & Kosmos added: “Attendance at the last games night was really strong and the demographic profile of the players was really varied, from grandparents looking for games to play with their grandchildren to millennials mixing with middle-aged parents. It was such a great crowd and the museum café made an ideal venue.”

The museum will be open from 6pm to 9pm, including the café/bar where the gaming takes place. Adults are invited to turn up and join other players, and experts will be on hand to help visitors avoid having to read any rule books.

This event is for over 18s only. Tickets cost £5 per person and can be booked online via the museum website – click here.
