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?

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…

Learn-to-Play Dungeons & Dragons

At Black Dragon Games you can join a learn-to-play Dungeons & Dragons campaign where one of our experienced Dungeon Masters will introduce to the game over the course of 4 sessions. No prior experience necessary - all you need to bring is your imagination!

Who can join?

These campaigns are for new players who have little or no experience of 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons. We will be running the Dragons of Stormwreck Isle campaign, so these sessions are not suitable if you have already played or read this campaign.

Pricing & Refunds

£12 for a 4 session campaign (paid on booking)

Please let us know if you are no longer able to attend a campaign. Refunds can only be given for cancellations made at least 7 days before the start date of the campaign.

If it becomes necessary to delay the start of a campaign then you will be offered a full refund if the new start date is no longer convenient for you.

Important: You must attend at least the first 2 sessions of the campaign, when we teach most of the key concepts. If you miss either of these sessions then you will not be able to continue with the rest of the campaign and no refund will be given.

Board Game Night

Looking for people to play board games with?
Want to learn some new games?
Or do you just want to play more board games?

All of our games are run by either members of staff or community members, who are there to new players learn how to play.

Come and join us on Tuesday evenings from 7pm.

Light games: Looking for a bit more variety? These sessions will always start with a specific game (which will take 30-60 minutes), and then move on to some other light games for as long as you want to stay. Ideal for new players looking to learn some lighter games!

Game Complexity

Low means that a game is quick and easy to learn - ideal if you're looking for something chilled out or accessible to younger players.

Medium games will take a little while to learn and will typically require significant planning throughout the game.

High complexity games will typically take much longer to learn and usually involve players planning several turns ahead while keeping track of a complex set of resources - recommended for experienced gamers.

The Scouring of Tarsak IV:
A Narrative Campaign for Kill Team

Our Kill Team Narrative Campaign is well underway, but newcomers are welcome to join us to help determine the fate of Tarsak IV.

What is Narrative Play?

In a Narrative Campaign each player starts with just enough operatives to form a Kill Team, but your team will expand as you play missions to include more operatives, better trained operatives and rare equipment that can sway the battle in your favour. By achieving Tac Ops in each mission you will work towards completing your own personal Spec Op, which will reward you with extra benefits.

This Narrative Campaign has an added story-telling element to it, which allows each player to shape events on Tarsak IV as they complete missions and ultimately determine the outcome of the planet itself.

Above all, Narrative Play is the most engaging way to play Kill Team. Every decision has the potential to gain your operatives experience or cause them long-term injury (or death!), while progress in your personal Spec Op is determined by scoring your Tac Ops rather than winning missions.

How do I get involved?


The Fell Alliance

Fight for the fate of Vittelfort at our first Warcry Campaign Day.

The third and final battle will see all Warbands take to the battlefield together on the outskirts of Vittelfort to determine whether it will be saved or burned to the ground...

Date, Time & Price

Date: Sunday 14th April

Time: 10am – 6pm

Price: £12
