Blood on the Clocktower

In the quiet village of Ravenswood Bluff a demon walks amongst you, murdering by night and disguised in human form by day. Will the good townsfolk put the puzzle together in time to execute the true demon, or will evil overrun this once peaceful village?

We are very excited to be hosting another pre-release game of Blood on the Clocktower, with far more spaces available this time! Blood on the Clocktower is a captivating and addictive new social bluffing game for those who delight in deduction and deception. Fans of Werewolf should definitely give this game a go...

    In Blood on the Clocktower:
  • dead players are never eliminated
  • every player knows something that can impact the outcome
  • the Storyteller may give misinformation to players who are 'drunk' or 'poisoned'
  • the dynamic Storyteller role leads each game to a nail-biting outcome

No two games are ever the same and death is not the end…

Twilight Imperium

We are excited to announce our first Twilight Imperium days!

We will run one session for Twilight Imperium veterans, and another for new players who would like to learn to play. We will start at 10am on Sunday morning so that we should have plenty of time to get through the whole game before the shop closes at 6pm (with a lunch break of course!).

We will be playing the latest edition of Twilight Imperium (4th Edition). Don't worry if you have only played 3rd edition - they are very similar and we will catch you up in no time (I didn't play 1st or 2nd edition, so I'm afraid I can't vouch for how similar the are).

Booking is essential

Cost: £7.50

How to book:

Drop us an email (or phone us/talk to us in-store) to sign up for a campaign.

One-shot Night

Our first one-shot night was a big success, so we are looking at turning this into a regular fixture. Come along and join in the fun with some new one-shot adventures!

One-shots are short adventures that are played through in a single sitting (3 to 4 hours in this case). This time we will be running one-shots for both D&D and Call of Cthulhu.

Dungeons & Dragons: Please bring a level 6 character, generated strictly from the Player's Handbook and Xanathar's Guide to Everything only. Please bring a paper copy of your character sheet for the GM. If you played in our last one-shot then feel free to level up your character from last time and bring them along.

Call of Cthulhu: The DM will bring pregenerated characters for players to use. New players can learn as they go.

Date: Monday 18th July

Cost: £5

Start Time: 6pm (please arrive 15 minutes early to get set up)

Booking:
You are welcome to attend without booking, but booking is recommended to avoid disappointment in the event that we are oversubscribed.
