Lee Rosy’s Tea:
Lee Rosy’s have an absolutely bewildering array of teas, and impeccable taste in music too. As well as hosting Gambling Lambs, they hold occasional gigs and are a big supporter of the GameCity Festival.
A huge supporter of local gamers and one of the best stockists of interesting games, Mondo Comico run regular weekly gaming events.
One of the finest comic shops in the country, right on our doorstep. Smiles, book shop aesthetics, stock you probably wouldn’t expect, an encyclopedic knowledge of comics and personal reccommendations await you here.
Running since 2006, GameCity is quite possibly the only consumer-facing games festival with a cultural bent. It’s simply one of the best games events we’ve ever been to.
The best resource for learning about board games, and famously harsh. People on BGG hate everything, or at least, depart from the 7/10 convention a lot of us have been acclimatised to by the video games press. Basically, if it gets rated over a 6 there, it’s probably quite good.
FANG are a local Notingham gaming group, who hold regular events in West Bridgford and at Mondo Comico.
They have over four thousand square feet of studio and workshop space. And a laser cutter.
Kneel Before Zod:
Local film club who now have the slightly less wieldy name “The Kneel Before Zod Video Club of Nottingham Club”, and joined forces with other local film nights to start Cinema Diabolique.
Plastics for Games:
When David was a kid, he occasionally designed board games. This meant, invariably, either borrowing pieces from another game, or cutting out lots of fiddly cardboard counters that looked a bit rubbish and were hard to pick up. The rather pragmatically named Plastics for Games only sell in bulk, but if you’re planning to self publish a game, they do a wide array of bits and are a great bunch of people to deal with.
