Dear all,

Apologies for popping this in the SE23 bit but was hoping it would reach those who set up/attended a regular? board game evening in Big Cheeks Thai a while back!
(Admin - please do move this if felt inappropriate to be here)

Just wanted to pop on here to highlight a new event at Ignition Brewery (about 3 mins walk from Sydenham Station) which I’m helping to setup. It’s a monthly games night on the last Thursday of each month - so this Thursday! The brewery and games will be available from opening (5pm) with a bunch of volunteers/games fans who are kindly bringing games and/or on hand specifically to teach people games. Obviously you can pick a game yourself and go at your own pace or bring your own and teach others.

Classics such as Monopoly and Scrabble will be available as well as more recent classic offerings and smaller/simpler games such as Pandemic, Machi Koro, Ticket to Ride, Exploding Kittens, Dixit, Jaipur, Forbidden Island, Kingdomino, A little wordy, Codenames and Sushi Go.

Lastly there is expected to be a couple of “heavier” games (ie: more complex and longer) in case there are a few people interested.

No booking required, just turn up! Would be greatly appreciated if anyone fancied turning up for the first one or could pass the information to anyone who may fancy it!

Many thanks,

J

Just a little reply/reminder of this in case of interest - the inaugural one had 11 people turn up to learn/teach and play games whilst being a bit sociable and having a drink.

If it’s something you or anyone you know may fancy, please pass the info on or pop on down next Thursday (last of each month) - Ignition open and games available from 5pm with “gamesmasters” offering to teach games from 6ish.

Many thanks,

J

Hey!

An emphatic YES! It has run every month bar December (tap room was closed) and from the 3 sessions so far there has has been 12-15 people turn up for games which is great for a small/new event.

The next one will be Thursday Jan 26th and the only change to previous messages is that although the tap room is open at 5 and all games will be available from then, people to help teach etc will be around from 7ish til close.

Any questions just let me know and the more the merrier!

Hope to see you then!
