NSPCC Board Game Day at The Dell House in Malvern.

A new event has been added to the gaming calendar – an NSPCC Board Game Day at The Dell House in Malvern.

From the Facebook page:-

On the actual NSPCC event day, i.e. Friday the 27th May we’re having an ad-hoc games session in the afternoon and evening here at the Dell House. www.thedellhouse.co.uk

We weren’t going to do anything this year as we’re rather busy, however, Friday is a bit of a gap in the busyness and inspired by Ad’s event we thought we’d hold another (we did one last year too).
Gaming from 2pm until 9:30. An overnight stay is an option (we are a B&B after all). Rates for that would be £80 for a double, £60 for single, with £25 of each going to the NSPCC.

There’s a suggested £5 donation per person for the gaming session.
If you’ve seen a DellCon ad from the past you’ll know what we’re about – the library here is mostly eurogames but we’re open to everything. It would be useful to know if you might be coming so pop us an email on stay@thedellhouse.co.uk

Come and play board games with friends, family or strangers at The Black Lion and raise money for a great cause  (Link to Facebook page).

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t played any games for decades or if the term ‘Euro’ for you isn’t about ‘Brexit’.

Suggested £5 donation to the NSPCC. All proceeds to charity. Venue kindly donated by Black Lion Hereford.

Many of the best board and card games aren’t available on the high street so you may not have heard of them, if you want to learn more we’ll have friendly games teachers on hand to get you started, or bring along your favorite classics and enjoy the nostalgia.

We have some great raffle prizes including 10 brand new boardgames, some pre-loved board games , some non game treats and two mystery boxes! There will be something for big kids and little kids alike!
