[advertising feature] Lo and behold: Bury Board Games has got a shiny new logo! My talented friend Will – from @boardgamebeacon fame! – offered to design this for me as a gift because he’s a saint… . 👑 Will worked absolute wonders with this logo. I threw some vague ideas at him about using Bury St. Edmunds’ coat of arms as the foundations. I love the meeples on the crown! Hands up if you think Will knocked it out of the park?! 🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️ . 👑 Bury Saint Edmunds is my home town, and it’s 33% of my account name, so it made sense to include it somehow! Also, fun pub quiz fact: did you know that Saint Edmund was the patron saint of England before Saint George? The latter inherited the title in around 1350-ish! . 👑 Edmund didn’t kill a dragon; he was the King of the Anglo Saxon realm of East Anglia until 869AD. Legend goes that he was shot full of arrows and beheaded by the order of the Dane, Ivar ‘the Boneless’ (what a name!). Hence the town’s emblem – and now my new avatar! – of a crown, with two arrows. Almost sounds like a board game, in itself… . #boardgamebeacon #newlogo #shield #newlogodesign #buryboardgames #burystedmunds #burysteds #burysaintedmunds #burystedmundssuffolk #patronsaint #saintedmund #coatofarms #meeples #meeplemaniacs #meeplepeople #meepleart #newlogowhodis #boardgamegeek #boardgamecommunity #bgg #bggcommunity #igbgcommunity #iloveboardgames #tabletopgames #boardgamer #instagamer #instagamers #🎲

Which is best- Calico or Cascadia? And why? . Tina was very keen to learn Cascadia last night and I took no prisoners, but despite outscoring her in the animals (thanks in-part to some good Salmon and Elk work) she vastly outscored me on the habitats, leading to an 85-85 tie! . After the game Tina said she may slightly prefer Cascadia over Calico (a game she loves), where I actually feel like I’m erring towards Calico, but it’s hard to articulate why. I’d love to know everyone’s thoughts… . . . @flatoutgames @aegminions @randy_flynn @bethsobel @kevinruss #cascadia #cascadiaboardgame #cascadiagame #calico #calicoboardgame #calicogame #tileplacement #tileplacementgames #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

I nipped into my local @ducklingstoyshop yesterday with my younger two and noticed their board game range was actually rather impressive! They stock a number of modern classics like Wingspan (@jameystegmaier ), Dice Hospital (@alleycatgames ), Camel Up (@pegasusspiele ), Pandemic (@zmangames_ ), 7 Wonders (@asmodeeuk @asmodee_usa ), Catan (@kosmos_games @kosmosgamesuk ), and numerous games from @bigpotatogames ! This makes me happy! . . . #flgs #friendlylocalgamestore #localgamestore #localgameshop #ducklingstoyshop #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

Board Game Store Adventures, Part II. Today I took the little ones (and a friend) to Bristol to see my brother and do a bit of post-Christmas shopping. Of course I had to drop in to Bristol’s two fantastic board game shops - first stop was Rules Of Play in the fascinating St Nicholas Market! . . . @rulesbristol #rulesofplay #rulesofplaybristol #flgs #friendlylocalgamestore #bristol #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

[Advertising Feature] Do you own a game that always seems to look beautiful in photos? . I haven’t played any games since my Sagrada Showdown with @buryboardgames last Wednesday (because life and family have got in the way), but I wanted to share that the morning after my showdown I returned to the table where everything was left out from the night before and I just had to take a photo of my beautiful completed Sagrada window board and share it! 😊 . This post is marked as an Advertising Feature because I was kindly gifted the Sagrada Life Expansion by @floodgategames - I don’t get paid money for any of my reviews, playthroughs or unboxings, and games are only gifted for an unbiased opinion. I feature them in my posts out of choice and not obligation. . . . #boardgamebeaconversus #sagradashowdown @adrianadamescu @darylandrews #sagrada #sagradagame #sagradaboardgame #dicegame #dicegames #dicedrafting #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #boardgamecommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

I had my first #SagradaShowdown with Tina tonight over a lovely pilsner in the gorgeous surroundings of our local! Of course, it was a hit! Our favourite barman, Justin, also got in on the opportunity to have his photo taken with “Macho Will”! 💪😎📸 . . . @floodgategames @adrianadamescu @darylandrews #sagrada #sagradagame #sagradaboardgame #dicegame #dicegames #dicedrafting #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #boardgamecommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

- Board Game Beacon Awards - 🏆 DICE GAMES 🎲 === Which are you favourite dice games? . I came into board gaming in late 2015 with a mild hatred of dice, until I discovered the clever ways dice can be used in games. Now I get very excited about dice games and have decided to give Board Game Beacon Awards to my favourite dice games in various categories. . Here are my winners: . 👨‍👧‍👦 Family: ‪#KingOfTokyo‬ Chunky dice and big monsters! This Yahtzee-inspired romp is so much fun every time I play it - the vast number of times this has appeared at the table says it all! . 🧩 Puzzle: ‪#Sagrada‬ I love drafting dice to create a stained glass window. The thinkiness and interactions are what makes this game special. . ♟ Worker Placement: #DiceHospital‬ A game that melds dice with worker placement where the dice themselves are patients in your hospital! . 🤝 Cooperative: ‪#PandemicTheCure‬ Arguably the best implementation of the Pandemic franchise, containing all the thrill and tension of Pandemic with a fresh dicey spin! . ⏱ Real-time: ‪#Flatline‬ Cure patients in the medi-bay of a damaged spaceship. The relative calm of the planning stages is beautifully juxtaposed by the hectic timed rounds. . 🕺🏻 Solo: ‪#‬UnderFallingSkies Space Invaders meets Independence Day: The Board Game! Such a well thought-out implementation makes you really feel like the game is alive and is out to get you! . ✍️ Roll & Write : #RailroadInk‬ I’ve played this game to death. Such a smooth brain-burner which becomes dangerously addictive! === I’d be interested to hear which dice games are your favourites for each category! . . . @floodgategames @adrianadamescu @darylandrews @alleycatgames @iello_world @iello_usa @iello_fr @zmangames_ @matt.leacock @renegade_game_studios @kklenko @czech_games_edition @horribleguild #boardgamebeaconawards #boardgameawards #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #dice #dicegame #dicegames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #gamer #game #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa

Which game have you not played in over a year, despite loving it?! . I settled down to a game of Pandemic: The Cure base game this lunchtime and got satisfyingly beaten on Heroic mode, but was glad to play this excellent and exciting game again after a long hiatus. It was only after playing that I realised I hadn’t played it in almost 2 years!! . . . @zmangames_ @matt.leacock #pandemicthecure #pandemicboardgame #pandemicgame #dicegame #dicegames #boardgamebeacon #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamers #boardgamesnight #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamecommunity #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgaming #gamer #game #tabletopgamer #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #brettspiele #bggcommunity #brettspieler #jeuxdeplateau #juegosdemesa
