Gambling Lambs at the Malt Cross

One and all, all and one, please join us for the very first official Gambling Lambs at our new home, the Malt Cross on Thursday April 2nd!

The location is just off Old Market Square (down the street with the TSB (or is it a Lloyds? Who even remembers) on the corner). Here’s a google map link.

All the other details remain the same. It runs from 6pm until 10pm (the place actually stays open until 11pm, so we won’t have to leave straight after it finishes, either), all your usual games and friends will be there.

Food and drinks will be available to order from the bar (see their menu here), and I’ve been told that we can order ‘sides’ by themselves as well, however I’m not sure what these are exactly, but I imagine they’ll be chips etc! (I’ve also been told that there are vegan options, however I’m not sure what these are, so please do ask when you order).

We will be upstairs, starting in the snug/comfy area at the front of the building, expanding out to the other tables on the mezzanine level as and when we need to.

We all really look forward to seeing you all there. Let’s show the Malt Cross how amazing we can all be! :)

A Big Thank You!

Thank you all so much for coming to our first GL at our new home at Sobar!

It was so great to see you all again and all the new faces, too! I really enjoyed our new space and thought things went really well!

Feel free to leave comments about how you felt things went either on here or on the Facebook group as we’d love to hear your feedback!

Already looking forward to next month!

Gaming Lambs #59: The One That’s A New Beginning

Hello gamers!

So here’s the month you’ve all been waiting for!

We held polls, had discussions and came to group decisions about everything GL!

We have a new home! We are now going to be at Sobar in Nottingham. You can see it on google maps here. It’s on Friar Lane, opposite Forbidden Planet.

It’s a great venue and we are all truly looking forward to our time there. They do a great selection of drinks and food, all of which I’m sure we’re all excited to try.

The second thing is that we have a new name! It’s a barely noticeable change, however it was necessary for our new home. You see, Sobar has been developed by a drug and alcohol recovery charity, and we all thought that having ‘Gambling’ in our name was inappropriate. So we are now known as… drumroll..

Gaming Lambs!

That’s right! It’s almost identical! Hooray!

Everything else stays the same! Great company, great games and excellent times!

So join us this Thursday evening, from 6pm-10pm at Sobar!

“We Are Our Choices”

So, you will have heard news of a possible venue change on the cards over the last few months.

We’ve grown bigger and better than ever at Gambling Lambs over the last few months. Too much so, to the point where we no longer fit comfortably in the venue that has so long hosted us (Lee Rosy’s).

There have been meetings, discussions, ponderings and explorations to find a possible new venue for our monthly gatherings, and we appear to have found a location that practically suits all our needs.

It’s a place called Sobar.

It has a wide variety of teas, coffees and sweet things, just like Lee Rosy’s offered, however it also offers a great selection of hot and cold food, available for very reasonable prices. We held a taster event there in May and the whole thing was very well received.

As such, we are holding a vote on the facebook group, where we are deciding, as a group, whether we are to stay at Lee Rosy’s, or move on to Sobar.

The group has had some posts recently with posts both for and against the move, so if you would like some further reading, I’d suggest checking it out!

The poll is open until Friday, and you can find it at the following link:

Please cast your vote, as we want to garner the opinions of the full spectrum of attendees to properly make a decision!

Updates to follow soon!

Gambling Lambs #58: The One With The Changes

So today is Gambling Lambs. It’s at Lee Rosy’s at 6:00pm as usual.

It may well be the last Gambling Lambs at Lee Rosy’s.

You should probably come along, as you know, it’s kind of an important one.

So important in fact, that I’m surprised I didn’t make this post sooner.

But you know, I haven’t been around lately and YOU’RE NOT MY SUPERVISOR.

See you at 6!
