Board Games at The Birks

The cinema’s a venue for all ages… a highlight of the year is the Young Indies short film makers competition run by our friends at the Heartland Film Society with the finalists work being shown on the big screen!

We’re now planning a Young People’s Season with more entertaining activities…

Do you like playing board games? Well on a Friday you can come along and join in with what we have or bring your own favourite and teach us. It’s a great place for people who enjoy meeting friends, family, new folk or colleagues to share fun.

So far we’ve tried classics like dominoes and backgammon and some new ones like

Rummikub: Tile combinations are placed on a board with the goal of being the first player to run out of tiles.

Bananagams: a word game wherein lettered tiles are used to spell words.

Exploding Kittens: A Card game with kittens, explosions, laser beams and sometimes goats!

Pandemic: A cooperative board game based on the premise that four diseases have broken out in the world, each threatening to wipe out a region.

Coming soon are: Miniature wargaming: players enact battles between opposing military forces that are represented by miniature physical models.

Ticket to Ride: Build tracks between cities before others block the way.

Sequence: an abstract strategy board-and-card game.

or any others you’d like to bring along!
