Paul Dean’s recent recounting of a childhood spent playing Advanced Heroquest over on SU&SD got me thinking and reminiscing about the tabletop games I played growing up. Part of me thought that my recent obsession with board games and RPGs stemmed from them currently being in a golden age of sorts. But my trip down memory lane prompted by Paul’s article made me realise that my childhood is steeped in tabletop, more so than I originally remember…
I figured I should start posting more about my tabletop and board gaming adventures now that they are becoming a more regular thing. This first post will be a bit of an info dump but in future expect a steady trickle of board game and pen & paper based delights.
So here we go!
First thing is that I went to Draughts over the weekend and really enjoyed myself. Draughts is London’s premiere Board Game Cafe and is really worth checking out. They have a ridiculous amount of games on offer and the setup is elegantly simple. You pay £5 and you can stay and play as many games as you want. Food and drink are on offer too (at fairly reasonable prices for London) and the whole place has a professional feel to it that other Board Game Cafes seem to lack.
