Manchester Metropolitan University’s Games Research Network and The Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies present Spooky Board Games at the Royal Exchange Theatre. As you enjoy Halloween in the City, take a detour to the Royal Exchange where you can rest your weary feet and join us for a session of the best board games and creepiest card games for Halloween. No booking required. Simply drop in to enjoy a selection of games suitable for all ages. No idea how to play? No problem. We can run through the rules and get you started. Why not battle hordes of zombies, make pacts with strange creatures from beyond space and time, blast ghosts in a haunted house, and attend masquerade at Dracula’s castle…? Stay spooky and come play.
FREE. No booking required.
As part of the PGR January induction at Manchester Metropolitan University, the GRN will be hosting a series of tabletop games in the Library's Chatzone. All are welcome, and we have a selection of games that last from between 5 minutes to 3 hours.
In this meeting we'll be playtesting a new game that Paul Wake and Sam Illingworth have been working on, the idea of which is to communicate global warming via tabletop gaming.
