This Saturday, the 21st Febrary, we meet as normal in the Bar Convent on Blossom Street, 10am till 9pm, but there will be extra things as we celebrate our 10th birthday! There will be cake! And presents! And prizes!
Yes, back in 2005, there was a small display at Vapnartak of “German games” (as they called them then), with the name “Beyond Monopoly!“. People were interested and wanted to join the club, but it wasn’t a club… yet. A week later BM! had it’s first meeting at Guppys on Nunnery Lane, with members bringing their own games. The club soon outgrew the venue and moved to the Railway Institute where we had cupboards to store the clubs’ collection. Almost 2 years ago we moved again, to the Bar Convent, where we now celebrate 10 years of gaming.
But enough about the past! To the future!
10 Presents! After polling members for ideas, Mark has bought the club 10 new games. Well, 10ish. They are varied and there should be something for everyone. Come along to find out what’s new.
10 Prizes! We’ve got some small prizes to give away throughout the day. When you arrive, get a raffle ticket from one of the organisers. Every hour – 11am till 8pm – we’ll have a draw.
Cakes! More than 10. The Bar Convent will be providing a selection of cakes at 12:30 and 5:30. There will also be two themed cakes during the day.
Free! As usual, our birthday meeting is free! Pay nothing for a whole days’ gaming, prizes and cake!
