Preston’s Gamers Guild are a group of 15-20 individuals, from all walks of life, who meet up every week to play non-traditional board and card games.

The gamers meet up every Tuesday evening at the Adelphi pub, at around 7pm, for a fun night of modern gaming.

Non-traditional board and card games can be played anywhere – including at a bar, in your living room or waiting in a line.

They are inviting people to come along and join the group, helping to teach the Preston community about modern games.

Aaron Leahy, Member of Preston’s Gamers Guild, said: “Playing modern board games is like sitting at the couch with your friends around a PlayStation or Xbox, except you don’t need a couch, a TV, or a games console.

“Only your friends and the game.

“Maybe you’ve played monopoly, scrabble or Cludeo and hated the experience and said you’ll never play a board game ever again.

“When you play games like Monopoly or Scrabble, the game takes forever, and you know who’s going to win in the first twenty minutes, but you still have to play through, and it’s no fun at all.

“Non-traditional board and card games are nothing like that.”
