Gambling Lambs: Summertime Games

June is here, so it’s basically summer now, right? The sun is out at least (barely) and there’s a hint of warmth. So yes, I’m declaring it. Summer.

Celebrate this fact by coming to join us at the Malt Cross and playing TONS OF BOARD GAMES. It’ll be rad.

Same time (1800-2200), same place (Upstairs at the Malt Cross), THIS THURSDAY (4th).

Hope to see you all there!

Gambling Lambs: The NSPCC Really Big Board Game Day

Roll up, roll up!

The NSPCC have encouraged people to get together and play board games and help them to rebuild lives through play! (http://www.nspcc.org.uk/what-you-can-do/events/really-big-board-game-day/)

Gambling Lambs thought it would be a great idea to host a board games evening in honour of this wonderful idea, so we’ve teamed up with the National Videogame Arcade to host an event for this at the Toast Bar!

It will be from 17:00 until 23:30 on Friday 15th (the day of the event), there’s no entry fee, and you don’t *have* to donate in order to come, but we kindly ask that you do, as it’s for a great cause.

The suggested donation is £5, however please feel free to give as little or as much as you’d like!

Here is the JustGiving page for any donations you have: https://www.justgiving.com/GamblingLambs/

You will also be able to donate on the night (or afterwards!), either using the above link, or with good old fashioned cash!

All the usual GL games will be there, plus hopefully some more, as we’ll have over 6 hours of game time! Please also feel free to bring and play your own games! There’s also the outdoor terrace, so if it’s nice, you can have an outdoor game, such as ninja or the likes!

The event will be upstairs in their Toast Bar, food (toast/toasted things/things on toast, cakes etc) will be available all evening, plus a selection of drinks.

There is no age limit on entry, however if you would like to be served by the bar staff, you will need to bring photo ID (licence requirement), so please bring your passports/driving licences etc)

The door to get into the Toast Bar is just to the left of the windows of the main NVA entrance.

We hope to see you all there, let’s play like we’ve never played before! :)

Gambling Lambs: The One With The Election Clash

One and all, please join us at Gambling Lambs on Thursday 7th May!

It’s the 2nd one at The Malt Cross, and hopefully it will be a bit less busy this time around, considering it’s not a bank holiday the day after!

If you do come though, please remember to vote beforehand, as it’s the same day as the general election, and we wouldn’t want you to have to miss your chance to vote just so you can come play kick-ass board games!

As usual, it’s 1800-2200, on Thursday 7th May. Upstairs at the Malt Cross.

Food available until 2100. The place also stays open until 2300 if you want to stay for a drink etc afterwards :)

See you all soon!

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! :)

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!
