Pegasus Spiele event this weekend

On Saturday, the 25th November, we will run a special Pegasus Spiele event at the shop from 12pm until 5pm.

Pegasus has sent us a box of brand new games:

  • Istanbul – The Dice Game
  • Indian Summer
  • Azul (Pegasus is publishing the German edition)
  • Noria

These games (and other Pegasus games like Memoarrr or 4 Seasons) can get played at four tables during the afternoon.

Because on Saturday is also the Christmas lights switch on in Crediton parking at the High Street or the Market Square will be nearly impossible. The best option is the council car park at St. Saviour’s Way (£1 from 9am to 6pm).

 

Pegasus Games Day

On the 25th November, we will have a Pegasus Games Day in the shop.

Pegasus will send us three new games to play:

  • Indian Summer
  • Istanbul: The Dice Game
  • Loot Island

But there also will be other Pegasus games like Guns & Steel, 4 Seasons and Memoarrr! available to play.

Details for the event are here.

Autumn Gaming Day 2017

Last Saturday was our regular Games Day here in Crediton in the Old Town Hall. It was the second time in the Town Hall and again it was a great day. Thanks to everyone who came on the day and made it a big success!

During peak time (2pm to 5pm) all 12 tables were full with lots of interesting games everywhere. And for anyone who is interested: the next Games Day will be sometime in April/May next year (depending on the availability of the Town Hall).

More photos of the day are here.

Autumn Gaming Day (28/10/2017)

Only five more days until this year’s Autumn Gaming Day here in Crediton.

The Autumn Gaming Day is our biggest event of the year with lots of new games and “old” classics available to play (some of them even brand new Essen releases).

We meet at the Old Town Hall in Crediton (at the High Street above the Crediton Museum) from 1pm until 10pm. Attendance is free for the day, children are more than welcome.

But how to get there? Because this is a new venue for us, not everybody will be familiar with the location of it. The Old Town Hall is right above the Crediton Museum on the High Street. The entrance is a bit hidden away, so please check the photo to see where exactly the entrance is.

Parking is quite easy: there is a big Council Car Park at the end of St Saviour’s Way (marked on the map). Parking there is £2 for 10 hours, which will cover you for the whole event. From the Car Park, you can take a footpath down to the High Street (exit marked on the photo).

If you are not coming by car, the bus connections from Exeter are quite good. Take the 5 (5, 5A, 5B or 5C ) and leave the bus at Crediton, Lloyds Bank.

We are coming to Dragondaze 2017

We will be at Dragondaze 2017 with a sales stand. Dragondaze is a Games Convention & Mini Comic Con in Newport, Wales on the 30th September.

The venue is the Newport Centre (1 Kingsway) and the event is starting at 10am and ends at 5pm.

If you are coming to Dragondaze you can place an order with us for collection: just choose the Dragondaze collection option during checkout instead of your normal shipping option.

Back from the UK Games Expo

We are back from the UK Games Expo and we have opened the online shop again. Our Stock is now up to date, but because of all the games we have sold at the UK Games Expo very limited. We will spend most of this week sorting out restocks, so by the middle of next week it should be a lot better.

Please also bear with us for this week if we are not at as fast as usual processing your orders.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Meeples’ Corner at the UK Games Expo

Our stock is packed and we are ready to go:  tomorrow we are off to this year’s UK Games Expo at the NEC Birmingham.

There has been a late minute change in our stand location: the Expo hall plan is showing our stand at E1 (corner FFG Avenue and Finny Street), but because we are again working closely with Pegasus Spiele our stand has moved to the other side of the Pegasus stand (across Mage Company / corner of Thomasson Street and 4Ground Avenue). There you will not just find all the great games we will bring to the show but also all the Pegasus Spiele games like Great Western Trail, Railroad Revolution and their Expo release Guns & Steel.

Speaking of games: in the last couple of day we have received some deliveries including restocks of In the Year of the Dragon Ann. Edition, Notre Dame Ann. Edition, Orleans and the expansions, Arkham Horror LCG, Ulm and Concordia. But it’s not all about restocks, we will also have a few new releases: Flatline, Yokohama, Colosseum, Championship Formula Racing, Round House and Hanamikoji.

We are all quite excited for the Expo to finally start and hope to see you all at the NEC!

Spring Gaming Day: How to get there?

This Saturday it’s gaming time and we will meet at the Old Town Hall in Crediton for 10 hours of playing board and card games.

But how to get there? Because this is a new venue for us, not everybody will be familiar with the location of it. The Old Town Hall is right above the Crediton Museum on the High Street. The entrance is a bit hidden away, so here is a photo to show where exactly the entrance is.

Parking is quite easy: there is a big Council Car Park at the end of St Saviour’s Way (marked on the map). Parking there is £2 for 10 hours, which will cover you for the whole event. From the Car Park, you can take a footpath down to the High Street (exit marked on the photo).

If you are not coming by car, the bus connections from Exeter are quite good. Take the 5 (5, 5A, 5B or 5C ) and leave the bus at Crediton, Lloyds Bank.

See you all on Saturday!

Spring Gaming Day 2017

Winter is coming to an end and this can only mean one thing: our next Gaming Day is getting closer.

After our last Gaming Day was the first family friendly one and a big success, this one will also be open to everyone.

But we change venue again: instead of the football clubhouse we are meeting at the Old Town Hall (Crediton High Street), which gives us the same space and more central location with takeaway food nearby and a 24h Tesco next door. The Old Town Hall is booked for us on the 8th April from 12.30pm until 10pm.

Attendance for the day is free, so please come along and join us for some games!

Closer to the date I will start posting a list of games that will be available. There should be quite a few interesting ones, the list of games releasing in March looks quite promising.

Winter Gaming Day 2016

Back by popular demand: Our last Gaming Days have been a success and with all the new Essen games coming out it’s time to have another day of gaming.

This year we will meet at the Crediton United AFC clubhouse, which means that unlike the last couple of years, this year children are welcome to come along.

We are meeting on the 19th November from 12.30pm. We can use clubhouse until 9.30pm in the evening.

Attendance for the day is free, we are still talking to the football club about the arrangements for the bar and food, but worst case is that everybody is free to bring along food and drinks.

Once I know what games will arrive after Essen in time for the Gaming Day, I’ll post a list of available games here.

Possible special guests on the day are Paul Grogan (Gaming Rules!) and Joel Wright (Devon Dice Podcast).

Our group is also meeting every Tuesday evening at the Phoenix cafe in Exeter. There is a Facebook group to organize the weekly meetings.

Please send me a message if you have any questions about attending. And if you would like to come along, please let me know, too.

Looking forward to seeing you!
