Introduction to Euro Games - Wednesday 14 November and Wednesday 12 December
Ever wondered how to play board games other than your dusty copies of Monopoly and Risk sitting in your cupboard? We are here to guide you into the exciting world of the Eurogame. We will have some of the classic gateway Eurogames on offer to play - Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Five Tribes and Puerto Rico. Come by yourself or in a group and we will match you up with a friendly player and game of your choice! We will be on hand to explain the rules and recommend your preferred game :)

What A Fiasco! - Wednesday 28th November
Cakes and Ladders presents a 'Fiasco' on the bus as we bring you another night of role playing fun. Interestingly 'Fiasco' is a game that does not require a games master to run the story. Our resident games master will be on hand to supervise but once players are ready to go the game is afoot.
Come with a group or join some new friends, embody a character in a chaotic world and tell a tale of powerful ambition and poor impulse control. There are an infinite number of stories that can be told during a game of 'Fiasco' and no two will be alike. You might be a band of small time crooks pulling one last job, a theatre troop trying to put on a play as the stage falls down around them, or a group of high school nerds trying to get revenge on the cool kids. They only thing you can be sure about a game of 'Fiasco' is that things will go wrong ... and then they'll get worse.

New Years on the Bus! - 31st December 12pm - 1am
Cakes and Ladders are hosting an exciting New Years board game event on the bus! There will be no Monopoly, no Scrabble and no board games you've been forced to play over Christmas - instead we will have a range of Euro games and Cooperative games to play, which will promise to be less competitive and more fun!
To make this a night to remember we will have a board game quiz, some game tournaments and all the non-traditional board games you want to play all day from 12pm until 1am. There will be festive treats like mulled Cider and mince pies and we will offer a free prosecco at midnight to toast in the new year!
Tickets are £10 and include board game play, the quiz and tournament entry and a free prosecco at midnight. Click here to buy a ticket!
