UCLAN Board and Card Gaming Society
...now with 100% more social distancing!
Fed up of getting into fights with your family over Monopoly? Are you tired of Trivial Pursuit? Sick of Scrabble? Or perhaps you just want to try a new, free hobby from the comfort of your own home, and maybe make some friends along the way.
Founded in 2012, here at UCLAN's Board and Card Gaming society we strive to be a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for all. Since its creation our society has gone from strength to strength - last year we achieved record membership, increased the size of our collection 3-fold and hosted multiple successful collaborations with other societies.
But, the onset of Coronavirus has been a challenge for us all, and we're no exception. Over the summer our executive team has been hard at work changing the way that our society operates in line with social distancing guidelines, and we think we've come up with a great solution. Introducing: the Distanced Social.
So, how does it work? Normally, the society would meet each Thursday evening in the Student Union building - we'd break out the games, grab some drinks from Source and split off into groups, with members free to play whatever they want from our collection.
Instead, we're moving all of that online with the Distanced Social. Every Thursday (beginning September 24th), from 6PM until 11PM we'll be meeting in our brand new Discord server and playing board games online using services such as Board Game Arena, Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator.
Don't know what any of that means? Don't worry - our executive team is here to help. Whether you're new to board games or an experienced aficionado - whether you want to play casually or competitively - you're bound to find something here to interest you.
And the best part? Membership is completely free! So what are you waiting for? To get started, simply join the society for free today and join our Discord server. We look forward to playing games with you soon.
