September again. It’s seems like it was September only a year ago. Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana. It is 1st Saturday on Saturday, which means it is Beyond Monopoly!
Beyond Monopoly!, Yorkshire’s friendliest boardgame club, meets all day this Saturday 4th September 2010 at the Railway Institute, 22 Queen St, York YO24 1AD, from 10am to 6pm+ (we don’t chuck you out at six). We hope to see a big turn out please, let’s keep breaking those record numbers. We need more tweeters please. Tweet your visit, the games you played, mention #BMYork.
If this is your first visit, then 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.
To find where we meet, look at this page here. If you’re in York on Saturday, pop along and have a quick butchers. You can have look at the games we play and join in if you want. No obligation!
We are buying new games this week as promised a few weeks ago. With a bit of luck, we’ll have four new games in for Saturday. After our review of the collection, we have a target list to knock off. This is one of them…
We’ve also had some offers of donations, but they’ll take a while to arrive. More news on them later.
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 (you may bring your drinks up to our room), 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 new to the club, 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!
