This week we completed our partnership agreement with an exciting new board game group called Game Box Social. One of the group's founding members, Gemma, is on-hand to explain a little bit more about Game Box Social.
Game Box Social
Game Box Social is a brand-new start up group based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. We are aiming to create a friendly, welcoming social environment for people to come and enjoy games with friends and meet new people.
We will be meeting in venues around the Southend, Westcliff and Leigh areas on a monthly basis to start with, however, it is our long-term goal to be able to create a permanent space in the local area for people to enjoy.
The idea of Game Box Social was born from our own love of board games and a distinct lack of businesses catering for this in our local area. We have spoken to a good number of people in the community who feel the same, so we aim to create something to suit everyone. We are an inviting group who welcome anyone, whether you are a regular gamer or you’ve never played before. We are on-hand to help you choose a suitable game, set-up, understand the rules and ultimately get you playing and having fun.
We are delighted to now be in partnership with Zatu Games, one of the biggest UK game distributors who stock over 13,000 different board games, card games and collectables (trust us it's so hard to choose just a couple at a time). They have been very supportive and will be our go to supplier when stocking up our game library. We may even have a few little treats in store from them to share with you all if you decide to come along and give it a go.
Whether you already play and just want to try something new or meet new people to game with and enjoy the great atmosphere, or you’ve never played a board game before and just want a fun evening out with friends doing something different, there really is a game for everyone.
Or better still grab your meeples and head down to one of our events. We can't wait to meet you all, share our love of games and build our little start up project in to something everyone can enjoy with us.
