Cartamundi will be the first games brand to stage a complete take-over of Board Game Club on Thursday, October 1st.

Held at Brasserie 43 in Euston, London, the card game manufacturer will treat more than 100 people to a VIP night celebrating the joy of cards. Guests can learn poker from the pros, try their hand at Black Jack using the latest stylised packs from Cartamundi and sample an array of card-based games against the familiar and friendly Board Game Club backdrop.

“Cartamundi’s entire ethos of ‘sharing the magic of playing together’ echoes wholeheartedly what we’ve aimed to do with Board Game Club since its inception,” commented Board Game Club’s co-founder, Lesley Singleton. “The sole reason we exist is to bring together people who like to play, so that they can explore new games and rediscover old ones, together.

“The fact that Cartamundi has been a huge supporter of what we’re doing from day one is flattering enough – but now they feel that Board Game Club is a powerful enough property to entertain their staff, clients and special guests? Well, we’re thrilled with that and will pull out all the stops to deliver a top class Board Game Club event for their guests.”

Steven Schoenmaekers, VP Games Manufacturing Services, Cartamundi Group, stated: “Cartamundi is delighted to partner with Board Game Club, in the true spirit of our purpose of ‘sharing the magic of playing together’. Our guests will enjoy the atmosphere of BGC, where game-lovers mix with beginners. There will be games for everyone and for every taste. We have been regularly attending BGC events and we feel this is the perfect setting for Cartamundi to reach out and have a great time with our clients and partners.” 

Co-founder Peter Jenkinson added: “As well as guests being able to explore a wealth of different face-to-face games in a sociable and fun atmosphere, we’re also laying on some special hosts, uber-fans of games we’ve featured in the past will be on-hand to guide newbies through game-play of various card, board and party games on the menu.”

Guests at Cartamundi’s total take-over will be treated food, drinks, prizes and exclusive product showcases. They’ll enjoy an array of Cartamundi’s games, as well as those on Board Game Club’s carefully handpicked gaming menu.

This event is strictly guest list only and there is currently a waiting list. Email to add your name.
