The NSPCC are encouraging people to get together to play games on Friday 15th May, and to make a donation (£5 is suggested) to their work. We're going to host one here at The Dell House.
We've such a range of games that we'll pick and choose according to the players present at the time. While the NSPCC / Hasbro advertising suggests the usual 'high street' fare I'm planning to mainly run with the lighter end of our Eurogame collection; aiming for games that are quick to pick up, play in 1 hour max, and the sort of game likely to open eyes to games beyond Riskopoly; and have them leave wanting more.
That said, if a bunch of ardent Powergrid fans turn up, then Powergrid it is!
(PS. For a more in-depth gaming experience, there's DellCon2 over the weekend of June 26-28)
