Lockdown is behind us (hopefully for good!), and we’ve been back in business proper for over a month now. After successfully pulling off our own International TableTop Day festivities, we’re now looking forward to more upcoming events! We’ll be releasing more information for each of these events as they get closer, but for now we just wanted to give everyone a brief look at what we’re currently planning.
Feature Fridays have been a recurring weekly event at Cakes n Ladders for a while now, and we plan to keep them going, but they’ll be moving from weekly events to fortnightly, with the next one happening this week, on 17 July! Check here for more information about Feature Friday. During the off weeks for Feature Friday we’re looking into starting a new fortnightly event…
We’ve got such a massive library of games that it’s inevitable some will be played more than others, and it’s honestly a shame to see some amazing games be neglected because they’re perhaps less popular, or their rules take longer to wrap your head around. Enter: Teacher Fridays. We’ll aim to spotlight these games, putting an emphasis on learning new games that aren’t played often, if ever. The first Teacher Friday will be Friday 24 July, where we will be teaching the delightful co-op game of burnination and consummate V’s, Trogdor!! The Board Game. Keep watch on our social media for more details to come!
Another returning favourite will be Total Party Kill Tuesdays. These low-commitment RPG one-shots were always well received, but obviously had to be put on hold during the COVID-19 lockdown. We’re happy to announce that TPK Tuesdays will be back in action from next month. New and returning adventurers alike can look forward to the next session on 4 August. More details on TPK Tuesdays can be found here.
International Cat Day
Some of you might be familiar with our dedicated Cat Shelf, packed to the brim with cat-inspired games. We’re feline excited to make the most of those games next month to celebrate International Cat Day. This purrfect holiday falls on a Saturday this year, 8 August, so we’ll be highlighting the games on that shelf (and others that won’t fit!) all weekend. We’re talking Meow, Action Cats, Purrrlock Holmes, Rat-a-Tat Cat, Exploding Kittens, Cat Capers, and even a special Feature Friday of The Isle of Cats. Mark it on your calendar right meow!
That’s right, one of our favourite annual traditions is coming back once again. As in past years we’ll be offering special discounts for anyone who comes in to game on the weekend of 15-16 August wearing a onesie, so make sure you’ve picked your cosiest and comfiest for the occasion! More details to come soon.
Cakes n Ladders turns 5!
Save the date! We at Cakes n Ladders will be celebrating our 5th birthday on 27 August, so keep your eyes peeled for more information to come about our birthday celebrations the weekend that follows (29-30 August)!
Any dates, times, and events are all subject to change, especially as this year has been anything but predictable, but we’re going to try our best to bring these and more fun events to Cakes n Ladders to keep you entertained throughout the latter half of the year. Thank you as always for your continued support!
