The site for information about Headingley Games Club Leeds. Come along and get a game. The first night is free and 1£/£2 each evening thereafter.Take a look at our Facebook Group to see what we do. Here are some samples of recent games we play shown below:
Braggart-A game we like a lot. A game of heroes, lies and unfortunate fish. There is always a need for a short game to fill in time after the big game has finished or waiting for one to start. Braggart is excellent and funny.
You sit in The Heroes Return, a tavern famed for its heroic clientèle. You’re not a hero, but you talk a good game. You and your friends are holding court, regaling the crowds with your tales of derring-do. Can you fight your way through a drunken haze to concoct the best boast? The most believable? Or at least ones that are funny? Or will you be called out as the liar you are?
In Braggart, each round players play cards from their hand which each contain a part of their story to combine them into a compelling tale. Stories are by turns hilarious or awe-inspiring and other players can accept them or accuse them of lying, downgrading their boast into something much less impressive (though usually much funnier!).
DBMM is Played at Headingley. Northern League in session on a Sunday competition. 2017 rounds of the Northern League. New Headingley Club in Headingley, Leeds. First game Seleucids invade Ptolemaics. (Very historically accurate).
DBMM is played at Headingley Games Club. The game using Wargame’s Research-DBMM – De Bellis Magistrorum Militum rules for ancient battles. The club has five players who use this rule set. The rules best suit 15mm figures. All details can
be found on http://dbmm.org.uk/. Come along and watch a game.
Revolution-Steve Jackson Game. We like it and it only takes an hour
Boardgamegeek revues this game well. We like it. In Revolution, you can: Blackmail the printer. Threaten the innkeeper. Bribe the priest. Welcome to Revolution!
Secretly bid against your opponents to gain victory points, control territories (worth victory points at the end of the game) and collect more Gold, Blackmail, and Force tokens for the next round of bidding! Will you try to control the tavern or the fortress? The harbour or the plantation? Knowing where to push for points – and where to back away and let your opponents fight – is the key to victory. Whoever has the most victory points at the end of the game wins. It’s a game of bluff, counter-bluff, and surprise!
Bidding tokens have different shapes and colours for easy identification. Colourful cardstock shields keep your bids private and also provide a handy rules reference during the auction. Brightly coloured wooden blocks allow players to see, at a glance, who controls which colonial-themed territories.
Revolution! is for three or four players. The rules can be taught in minutes, and a complete game takes less than an hour. Each new game lets players find new strategies and tactics.
