This is an informal, friendly group for learning and playing modern board games. Board games have come a long way since Monopoly and Ludo. The typical modern game involves lots of interesting, competitive decision making over a period of 30 to 90 minutes. Above all playing modern board games is fun. In a friendly and relaxed way we'd like to introduce you to some of the classic modern Euro style board games such as Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne and Alhambra. Initially we will explain the rules and play specific games in groups of about 4. We will often replay games already learnt. In later classes, group members will have the opportunity to choose what they would like to play or what new games they would like to learn. We will provide the games required. Suitable for those new to board games or anyone just wanting to play more.
