Welcome / Intro games
15 amazing easy to learn, quick to play super fun games to get you started.
The welcome area is also a great place to start you day, meet players and get help
Heavy Corner ‘Splotterthon 3’
A small area of the con for ‘heavier’ games involving deep strategy and long play times. These are very rewarding, but not for the faint-hearted. A curated selection of titles will be on offer, especially featuring the games of the renowned Dutch games publisher Splotter. All their major titles will be available, from Roads & Boats (1999) to Horseless Carriage (2023), and we are hoping to play every one over the course of the weekend (preferably without having to mop up any depleted brains from the floor – no promises!)
Other heavy games are of course most welcome in this area, and a second strand of 18XX (economic train games) will also be offered by the team. Because these games take a long time to play and space is likely to be limited, pre-booking is encouraged.
Just get in touch with one of the facilitators with your requests and we’ll get you on the list. Heavycorner@herefordshireboardgamers.co.uk
