IN STORE PLAY AT BUZZIN' MEEPLES
The key feature of Buzzin' Meeples is in store play - you can play anything from our range of 600 games.
Games in the library include:
- Earth (Kickstarter Edition)
- Hegemony (Kickstarter Edition)
- Ark Nova (with deluxe pieces)
- Terraforming Mars (deluxe wooden player trays and storage for components)
- Brass Lancashire (deluxe)
- Brass Birmingham (deluxe)
- Planet Unknown (deluxe Kickstarter)
- Foundations of Rome (deluxe Kickstarter)
- First Rat
- Marvel Dice Throne (deluxe Kickstarter)
- Deckchairs on the Titanic
- Wingspan (lots of deluxe pieces)
...... and MANY, many more!
Play as many games as you wish during your visit - paying for the table size you need.
Many of our games are deluxe with special components and storage solutions.
Some games are 'Table Hogs' and will need a larger table - but rather than squeezing you onto a table that is not suitable you can select a table with a higher player capacity for more space.
Tables are available in the main store area and also in the themed areas of our basement.
All tables have cup holders to avoid nasty game damaging accidents, and to free up more table space for you to play safely!
Booking for tables is recommended as we are a small venue and tables are limited. You will not pay in advance for booking a table.
