The third John Adams takeover of Board Game Club took place last week where it once again proved a hit with gamers thanks to classics like Othello and Rummikub, as well as new-to-market Slam It and Grabolo.
With its fast-to-grasp rules and first-to-grab format, guests reportedly “found Grabolo hard to resist.”
Board Game Club co-founder, Lesley Singleton, suggested another reason for its popularity at the October 17th event: “It’s one of those games that seems incredibly straightforward… Find the right shape among the mess, then grab it before anyone else does. The trouble is that the second the dice stop moving, you freeze – then all hell breaks loose.
“It’s a perfect game for our nights: fast, simple and funny.”
The appeal of the see and grab format continued elsewhere in the room, with plenty of people also enjoying Don’t be a Donkey.
Now in its fifth year, Board Game Club continues to feature card, party and novelty games proving ‘can’t miss’ dates in the diary. The popular evenings let game enthusiasts and industry insiders meet, mingle and play in a relaxed informal way.
