Saturday 20th January will see the opening of a new hobby store in the Midlands.

Boards & Swords Hobbies will be opening in Derby. Their address will be 3 Jubilee Parkway, Jubilee Business Park, Stores Road, Derby DE21 4BJ

  • Mon-Fri 1700hrs-2200hrs
  • Sat 1000hrs-2000hrs
  • Sun 1000hrs-1800hrs

Games they will be supporting include:

  • Blood and Plunder
  • Gangs of Rome
  • 40k
  • Age of Sigmar
  • Wild West Exodus 2nd edition
  • Infinity
  • Walking Dead
  • Bolt Action
  • Black Powder
  • Blood Bowl
  • Necromunda
  • Pokemon
  • MTG
  • Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • Star Wars Destiny
  • X-wing
  • Flames of War
  • Team Yankee
  • Test of Honour
  • Selection of board games available to play
  • FFG organised play events#

They are currently running a Kickstarter project to help fund some extras for the store (Wi-Fi access, coffee machine etc) – this is due to finish on the 24th January.

Always good news to have a new gaming venue in the area, and we wish Rob Davy-Cripwell and Ian Mann all the very best in this new venture.
