Let's Play

Join us on thrilling playthroughs of your favourite board games where we reveal how the game really flows and how poor we really are at rolling dice.


Just because we're unprofessional drunkards with a penchant for hurling dice and games that tell stories, that doesn't mean you shouldn't read our ill-informed opinions here.


Gaming is thirsty work. Luckily, we've done the hard work of quenching that thirst with a selection of beverages, each more delicious than the last - here we wax lyrical about them.


Want to read our confused ramblings on every topic under the sun? Well, as long as it has a passing relevance to boardgames, great beer, or both you'll find them here.

Boards and Booze

Welcome to Boards and Booze – a celebration of board games, playing said games with friends, and casual, (mostly) responsible, drinking.

We play through board games so you can get a feel for how they work and the stories they tell before you part with your cash.

From time to time, we also offer up our opinions on said games. Full disclosure: we like theme, we like mechanics (some people call it 'crunch', but we know nothing of the crunch), and we're deeply comfortable with dice and random chance. We also enjoy laughing at our friends' misfortune more than we probably should.

Perhaps most of all, we like the tales that come from our games, wherever and however they may be played. Tales of triumph, of despair - and especially tales of wanton capriciousness, pettiness or outright stupidity. Time well spent, in other words.

We also drink beer.
