Beyond Monopoly!, Yorkshire’s friendliest boardgame club, meets all day this Saturday 17th July 2010 at the Railway Institute, 22 Queen St, York YO24 1AD, from 10am to 6pm+, but we don’t throw you out at six. Hopefully, our high visitor numbers will stay up. We could be on a record year in 2010.
If you haven’t been before, your first day is FREE! You can come and go as you like, we’re happy to see you whenever you like. For regulars, we charge adults £3, seniors/unwaged/students £2 and juniors £1 (8-12 must be supervised by you). Sorry, no disabled access at the RI, plus we’re up 2 long flights.
If you want to find where we meet, look at this page here. If you’re in town Saturday, nip in and have look at the games we play.
We are still not tiring of Forbidden Island. Turns out that it’s pretty cheap too, so great value if you want to buy after trying it out. Remember, you get discounts from BM! with local sellers like Travelling Man. You should also try out Atlantis, one of the hot games from Essen 2009. Different every time you play, it’s a nice mix of decisions and timing.
For food and drink, you can bring your own lunch into BM! if you like, or go out to eat and come back later. We’ve a great pub bar downstairs (bring your drinks up to our room if you want), they serve food up to 1:30pm, but the bar closes from 2-6pm, so it’s a good idea to bring a water bottle in as well.
If you haven’t been to the club before, just drop in and have a look. We’re very relaxed, nobody tells you what to play next, but we’re always on hand if you need suggestions. Want to try a game? Just pick the game up, ask around ‘Who wants to play this?’ and then find a free table to start. It’s as easy as that! If you need the game explaining, we’ll have somebody sit with you and show you how it works.
See you on Saturday!
