On Friday 14 September 2018 we held a pilot event at Newport Methodist Church Hall. We invited some friends. We played Picaria and Nine Men’s Morris (both 3 in a row games), followed by Acquisitions (a capture game played on a chessboard). This pilot event helped us find our way around the venue, as well as having a first go at teaching adults how to play some of the abstract strategy games we love. We are now ready for our first paying customers on Friday 21 September 2018.
