Have you heard about our Family Games Afternoons?
It’s no secret, we LOVE playing games.
We love that fact that with the right games, families put the devices down and spend some time enjoying each other’s company.
Not only will they bring you together, board games are a great way to build skills such as critical & strategic thinking, memory, creativity and problem-solving.
For new players though, the world of board gaming can be daunting. There are so many titles, genres and options, and with many games having their own expansions and extensions, it can be so confusing.
And that’s where Presets of Mind can help.
In store, we have gaming experts. We’ll get to know you and assess your family’s experience level and the kids’ age range. From there we’ll make recommendations to put you on the fast track to family gaming fun. Not a fan of the adversarial style games like Monopoly, where a friendly game can take forever and end in a fight? (not one of our favourites, either). Have no fear, Board Games have come a long way since then. There are plenty of options for cooperative games, where all the players work together to beat the game or the previous score. Games like Hanabi, Forbidden Desert and Forbidden Island spring to mind.
Want games that are super easy to learn and set up, fast to play, yet have enough depth for the grown ups? Games like Sleeping Queens, Tsuro and Carcassonne are top of our list.
Just want to have some fun? You can’t go past Ice Cool, Finska, or the fantastic Rhino Hero (like a combination of Uno & Jenga) to get everyone rolling around, laughing!
Still unsure? Family Games Days are the perfect opportunity to test drive lots of different games for FREE. You get to lean on our experts for advice, and then experiment, have fun and find new favourites for your group.
We’ll bring along our vast games library and a group of talented hosts, who’ll be on hand to teach you and your family how to play the games and to help get you going.
Entry is FREE. There are ample opportunities to purchase refreshments from nearby stores.
Family Games Afternoons are on the First Sunday of Every Month, at the Brookside Shopping Centre, from 1 pm – 3 pm. You can register your interest, or learn more about our Family Games Afternoons by visiting our Facebook Event here. We’d love to see you there!
