ANNOUNCEMENT – Covid-19 Tier 2 Update
Hi everyone – in case you haven’t yet been made aware, Essex will be moving from Tier 1 restrictions to Tier 2 from Saturday 17th October (technically from midnight on Friday, but we’ll be closed by then anyway)
The most substantial difference is that is no longer permitted for groups of different households to meet socially in indoor settings.
Sadly, that includes us. Role-playing groups and Magic the Gathering nights will have to cease from Saturday.
It feels like we only just started meeting up again, and now we have to stop for…well, however long it takes. Its very frustrating, but fingers crossed it won’t be for too long.
We will remain open for retail, so you can still pop in for all your games, cards, manuals and shiny, shiny math rocks.
We can still host family groups, or groups of people sharing accommodation, so if that’s you, feel free to get in touch and book a slot. All our Covid precautions remain in place.
Take care, and look after each other,
Jim and Beth

Try before you buy
We don’t just sell games, we want to help you find people to play them with as well. That’s why we are organising game events at various venues around Essex.
