New games from Essen Spiel and new release from Gibsons

Board Game Club’s next event will take place from 6.30pm on Wednesday 21 November at Century Club, Soho.

Fresh from this year’s Essen Spiel, the team has brought home an eclectic collection of new and intriguing titles for the games menu – including: some new gems from Korean designers Happy Baobab, Magic Fold and Layers; the catchily-named Strange Vending Machine from Soso Games; sure-fire Board Game Club hits Trapwords and Pictomania from Czech Games Edition, and the highly-anticipated Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra, the follow-up to this year’s Spiel des Jahres winner, Azul.

In addition, Gibsons will be shining a Board Game Club spotlight on their new title, Crystal Hall. It’s the magical strategy game where players must lead their wizard-shaped counters on a quest to uncover four magical crystals and become the most powerful wizard in the game! Cast spells, drink potions and teleport around the board as you attempt to demolish your foes! The game’s inventors will also be on-hand to share tips and sign copies of the game for anyone wishing to buy a copy on the night.

“This year’s Essen Spiel felt like the busiest ever,” comments Board Game Club co-founder, Lesley Singleton, “So we did our best to check out the thousands of new releases at the show and have come home armed with a selection which surely has something for everyone! Our Essen-haul-sharing night is one of the most popular events of the year as we try to share a real mixture of games from around the world. It’s also exciting to have the Gibsons team coming along to demo Crystal Hall, which I’m sure our guests will love.”

Now in its fifth year, Board Game Club has established itself as a fun, informal night of board gaming. It’s free to attend – simply register on the guest list by emailing or sign-up at
