This Friday, you can have a fun games night with the family and raise money for a very worthy cause, the NSPCC, by taking part in the Really Big Board Game Day.
We were very excited to hear about this event as we love playing board games and never seem to have the time to play them as much as we’d like so this was a great excuse.
All the old classic board games immediately remind me of my happy childhood and as I’m trying to build up our own collection in our home family home, I was very grateful that we were sent a copy of Cluedo to play too.
So after a long Sunday walk (run for me!) out in the cold wind, at home once our tea time soup was simmering on the hob, we settled down together to play a game together.
You can sign up for your own free fundraising pack online.
At Nanny’s house we play the classic Cluedo, this new edition has some modern twists with an updated mansion and character descriptions. There are also added “Intrigue Cards” which you can use or ignore and play Classic Cluedo. I found these speeded the game up, which was handy when playing with younger kids. We had lots of fun and they have already asked to play it again tomorrow so I can see this coming out a lot this week!
So, what do you need to do to arrange your own Really Big Board Game Day? Well firstly, you can organise a big event at a local school, community group, work place or pub or hold a family games day (or night) at home.
Then, just grab your favourite board games, clear a few tables (or a space on the floor) and play! Don’t forget the most important part of the event and donate to NSPCC (there is a suggested donation of £5 per player but every amount helps).
We will be having a games night again on Friday, in aid of the NSPCC, and I hope you will too.
We can all help to protect children- every childhood is worth fighting for.
