The Facebook group of Headingley Games Club works so well. Active club members use Facebook to arrange games, give notice of events in the locality and share ‘photos and game activities and promote discussion of the playability of games. BUT we keep getting non-attending individuals who join of large membership with the only intention of advertising the commercial activities, sometimes disguised as competitions. The club is run by unpaid volunteers and does not see any reason why others should use our Facebook for private financial gain. NO SPAM ADVERTISING PLEASE: including non-attending member kickstarters. If you want to advertise please consult us and we will tell you the fees.

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.

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.
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. 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)
