Thursday is games night in Headingley. We are open for Games night at the Heart Centre Headingley

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.

Publisher description:
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!).

The club is thriving; between 30 to 40 players each night. We play lots of games at the club. See the pics below. They vary from week to week. Here is a picture display of some from one evening. Come and join in.

The Bloodbowl League. WYBBL or the West Yorkshire Blood Bowl League

The Bloodbowl League.Some players started a revival at the club of this popular game. If you are interested bring your team along on a Thursday or arrange a game on our facebook group. Now a League has been set up.15095697_1703934666587445_8210434540151387162_n

Blood Bowl is a Fantasy Football game created by Jervis Johnson for the British games company Games Workshop (but now under the aegis of their Specialist Games division) as a parody of American Football.[1] The game was first released in 1987 and has been re-released in new editions since. Blood Bowl is set in an alternate version of the Warhammer Fantasy setting, populated by traditional fantasy elements such as human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls. I don’t know who posted this up on Wikipedia but two players had a game last week. A revival as it has often been played at the Headingley Games Club. WYBBL or the West Yorkshire Blood Bowl League is the name for our local league. In essence, we are a group within the local gaming clubs community (we also occasionally play at the Airebourgh gaming club) that specifically cater to Blood Bowl (this ensures we don’t swamp this group with constant Blood Bowl banter). We also run tournaments (our next one being at the 5th Meanwood games day in January)
