The Great Indoors 2018

Back for a third year, the Great Indoors team are thrilled to announce that GI2018 will be a two day event on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July 2018 at Parkside Suite, Bromsgrove.

Tickets are now on sale for Worcestershire's biggest and best annual board game event. The structure is based on the success of the past two years and your ticket gives you access to:

  • Loads of open gaming space with signal system for finding games/gamers
  • Extensive games library of 80+ titles (free to use)
  • Asgard Games retail area
  • Blind charity auction
  • Raffle for £50 BoardGameHut voucher (£1 a ticket)
  • Family zone with games suitable for the whole family
  • Giant Tsuro
  • Learn to play Omweso, national game of Uganda

You can also demo:

  • Magnificent Flying Machines by Richard Denning - Medusa Games
  • Solomon Kane by Jake Thornton - Mythic Games
  • X-Wing - our volunteers will be running games across the weekend for new players and veterans alike

Saturday will run from 10am - 10pm and Sunday 10am - 6pm.

Through our blind auction we will once again be supporting Chrysalis Youth Empowerment Network (registered charity no.1158392) who continue to do fantastic work with young social entrepreneurs in Uganda. The aims of the charity are to work towards trying to ensure every child in Africa can reach their potential. Our support will enable CYEN to train up new young people to learn how to play boardgames and to take them out to places where they can teach new young people to play the sort of boardgames played the Chrysalis Centre in Kireka, Kampala. Depending on how much is raised, the proceeds could be used to sponsor three young boardgamers through school this year.

Finally, our fully licensed bar will serve drinks and snacks throughout the weekend.

There will be limited free parking available on site but thanks to the central location, there are several pay and display car parks within a short walking distance. Public transport is also a viable option with the railway station only 30 minutes away by foot and regular bus services delivering passengers to the Strand Centre, a 1 minute walk from Parkside Suite.

Family ticket discount

Because of the limitations of online ticket systems, we cannot easily offer family tickets as a separate entity. Therefore, please use the FAMILYTICKET discount code for orders comprised solely of 1 or 2 adults with children under 18 to receive 25% off standard ticket prices.

Any customers found using the discount code when not applicable will be required to pay the balance on arrival at GI2018 or may be declined entry.
