Board Game Club’s Asmodee takeover draws record number to Century Club

An Asmodee takeover drew record numbers to London’s Board Game Club on Wednesday evening.

Soho’s exclusive Century Club filled to capacity this week as guests were treated to the Asmodee gaming range catering for all tastes, while Coiledspring also premiered a brand new title.

“Asmodee’s games aren’t just known for being diverse; they’re high-quality and crowd-pleasing too – that’s certainly one of the reasons why the night was so popular.”

At the calmer end of the spectrum were titles such as the tree-growing strategy game Photosynthesis and the tile shifting favourite Azul, while in complete contrast, Coiledspring debuted its new action game Funky Chicken. The arm-flapping, chicken-squawking game is designed to both stand alone and combine with its predecessor, Happy Salmon.

Asmondee’s Ben Hogg, said: “We are really pleased with how popular our second Board Game Club takeover proved to be.

“We focused on our Modern Classics and Fun Fast Games ranges, and it was great to see the night supported by a mix of inventors, indie retailers and games fans. Our team enjoyed demonstrating newer titles like Decrypto and Ticket to Ride New York to the crowd. Our brand new game, Who Did It, was a massive hit on the night.”

Board Game Club continues to blend card, dice, party, board and novelty games to provide ‘can’t miss’ dates in the diary, where games enthusiasts and industry insiders meet, mingle and play.

Board Game Club is taking a break next month but will return to Century Club in Soho on Wednesday, September 18 with another big brand takeover.
