Boardgamers - New group
Board games are a great way of keeping the brain active. There are many types of board games of different genres, styles, themes and settings. We will be playing a range of board games where winning relies more on good strategy and planning than luck. Better known examples are Settlers, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride. The plan is to enjoy playing new games – No formality, no experience required – just to play, socialise and have fun. Please see new Boardgamers group page. 12.11.19
