It's only a month to go the Prostate Cancer UK Board Gaming Day, which is being held at the Lancaster House Hotel in Lancaster (unsurprisingly, the name does kind of give it away!). Doors open at 9am, and you can game all day until 10pm for free! For those that don't know, the venue is just 5 minutes from junction 33 of the M6, and only a couple of miles south of Lancaster City Centre and the train station.

The event is for those new to the hobby as well as regular gamers. There will be a library of games people can pick up and play on the day, and also introductory tables where newbies can learn and have a go at some games.

There's also a raffle competition which will be going on throughout the day, with a huge prize pool of over 80 games. Tickets are £1 each, and there will be prize draws every hour (so get there early and buy your tickets first thing - lots of chances to win!)

It should be a great day and we are hoping for a high turnout. Check out the Facebook event page for more details - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Prostate-Cancer-UK-Boardgamin.... If you are planning to come, please let us know either on this thread or over on the Facebook page.

Steve

I'm hoping to come along with a +1.

It's a great cause and one that has spent too long under the radar until recent years.

I'll be plugging it to my group as well so maybe some of them will come along.

One thing everyone could kindly do is (If your on Facebook) click the link that steve posted, like the page and share the boardgame raffle prize pool. The more people that image hits the better.

Plus have a look at the extra contest I have created for the day...

Will be a great day, I'll be exhausted the day afterwards.

I plan to be there, and I have directions to buy raffle tickets for someone else who would be there, but will be suffering a holiday in France with family (and I choose the word suffering carefully...).

Me and my girlfriend are coming up from Hereford (4 hour drive).

I can bring a few games with me if needed?

This will also be our first public board game event and only the second every group of strangers we've played with, as we are lucky enough to have two groups at home who come to us!

It's great to see lots of people saying they are coming, particularly those that are travelling so far. I'm trying to work out whether the Scottish contingent are travelling the furthest or whether Hereford is further away...

Look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!

Same

And since you offered, I wouldn't mind trying 1775: Rebellion or 1812: The Invasion of Canada
