In June 2005, Sue ...
... and I opened our very own Board Game shop in Stoke on Trent in the UK:
Feel free to visit us if you're in the area (or our online shop www.shiregames.com
We have tables set up in the shop and we are more than happy for people to stay and play the games they've bought or brought with them. We also have over 250 demo copies of the latest games to try!
We recently moved to a much larger place - Pictures to follow!
Our games club is Shire Gamers.

All customers and visitors welcome!The Cast are Dice Board Gaming Weekend
In 2006 and 2007, we ran a very successful board gaming weekend at the Regent Theatre, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.
The first year we had 125 (Sat) and 95 (Sun) at the con.
The second year we had 153 (Sat) and 135 (Sun).
Unfortunately, due to rising costs at the theatre, we couldn't run it for the last few years.
However ... The best weekend of board gaming in the UK returned in 2011!
It was held at Stoke-on-Trent 6th Form College in August 2011 and 2012, and it was a massive success ...
2011's numbers were 168 (Sat) and 135 (Sun).
In 2012 we had 180 (Sat) and 145 (Sun)
And then for three years I forgot to update these figures (!) and this year (2015) we went over 300 people!
