What are Boardgames?
Monopoly, Axis and Allies and Risk would be some of the most common names in board gaming, the old favourites are still around but boardgaming has come a long way since the ones of your past!
We are no longer restricted to thimbles, red or blue barrels or the most basic plastic soldiers or simple six sided dice and convoluted and some times a little tedious rules. The times have changed and board games like everything have improved and adapted. The settings these days can be anything from family fun games where you are all Godzilla like dinosaurs competing to see who can smash up the city the best, to Zombiecide where you all play survivors in a Zombie Apocalypse, clawing and sometimes stepping on a few toes just to stay alive.
Some of the best boardgames are the ones that best fit their theme.
If you get six players to sit around the table and play Game of Thrones it captures the setting perfectly, taking control of the major houses you compete to see who will be King of all Westeros.
With intrigue, scheming, false promises and all your favourites characters you try to out wit and outmanoeuvre your rivals...
There will be a large selection of Board Games available on the day for anybody who wishes to play them. These include all the currently available Fantasy Flight Games & much more. For those of you that wish to bring your own games & try them out with a friend, or some friendly strangers, feel free to turn up on the day. This is a great opportunity to make new friends, play new games & touch base with the gaming community as a whole. Declan Doonan, Limerick's own guru of Fantasy Flight Games, amongst other things, will be on hand to help any one on the day.
