Board Game Club – September event announced

The next Board Game Club is set to take place behind the bookcase of The Jam Tree, Clapham on 18 September 2014. Switching to a Thursday, The Jam Tree will play host for a second time due to member feedback.

People who came along to our last event have been gushing about the venue ever since. It seems it wasn’t just the eclectic mix of party, board, dice and card games which made them smile; it was the sumptuous, secretive setting and awesome ambience it provided. They were as enchanted as we were by the mysterious bookcase bar and The Jam Tree team has been so supportive of our night that we’ve decided to return for a second run!

We’ll be refreshing the games menu yet again with a fusion of the retro, the new, the childish and the controversial, taking on board the comments we’ve had from guests both on and after the night. We love that our members are starting to give us really valuable feedback about the games we make available for them to try and it’s interesting watching the group evolve and really put the games through their paces.

And it won’t just be the games menu which will have Board Game Club members’ mouths watering – The Jam Tree is supporting the September event even further by offering all guests 50% off their food bill on the night.

It’s brilliant that The Jam Tree is getting right behind Board Game Club and will be helping us spread the word locally too so that we can open up the night to an even bigger crowd. And even though we’ll continue to tour our nomadic, grown-up games night throughout the Capital and beyond, it feels like we’ve found a bit of a spiritual home with these guys. They, like us, are passionate about creating an evening with a flawless blend of atmosphere, people and games. It’s a great backdrop for a ridiculously fun, and often raucous, evening.

– Board Game Club co-founder, Peter Jenkinson

Those who are new to the speakeasy-esque Board Game Club can expect an evening of pure, guilt-free game-play – retro childhood favourites sit side-by-side with Games for Badults and all contribute to a fast-paced, sociable, fun evening for friends and strangers alike.
