For those of you who are new to the world of modern board and card gaming – welcome! We think you’re in for such a great time.
Things have changed so much since ‘the old days’. You’ll still find the classics around, of course (and we enjoy them in the café) – Scrabble, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Connect Four, Chess…
But gaming didn’t just suddenly stop there. Every year over 1000 brilliant new games are released.
Exciting, challenging, original games with beautiful boards and cards, high-quality components and innovative mechanisms.
Games that cover every theme imaginable, from ridding the world of deadly diseases to fighting hordes of ravenous zombies, from racing camels across the desert to trading silks across the Mediterranean, from building rail lines across 19th century Europe to hunting for Jack the Ripper in Olde London Town.
The way games are played has changed, too. Gone are the days of relying simply on rolling a die and moving some spaces. Today’s mechanisms give you simple but meaningful choices, allow you to play as a team against the game itself, or even let you customise the rules so your experience is truly unique.
We could also point out that it’s a growing pastime around the world, and mention research into the value of play – how it benefits all sorts of cognitive, social and emotional functions. But really we’d rather point out that playing games is just great fun.
And if you come down to the Silver Lime Café, we’re sure that’s exactly what you’ll have.
