When board games bring strangers together, a wee story…
On the weekend we heard a lovely story from one of the team. She had taken Z-Man Games âBlueprintsâ to a local coffee store (a Zarraffaâs store for those wondering) for a morning coffee, breakfast and game with friends.
So hereâs the cool part, an elderly couple were sitting nearby, glancing over from time to time, perhaps listening slightly on the gaming conversation, âmy new apartment block is fully sustainableâ, âwell mine has a full glass frontageâ.
Blueprints by Z-Man Games, eye-catchingly good.
If youâve played âBlueprintsâ you will know itâs a game about using dice of differing colours to complete a blueprint of a particular shape. It is a simple, yet fairly strategic game that is quick to play and a lot of fun. On this morning it was also magical.
The lady of the couple stood and stepped forward leaning down saying the game looked very interesting and that sheâd not seen anything like it before. A nice chat ensued in which she was run not only through the game (and offered to play, but she declined), but also about where such games were purchasable and even a little about life itself.
Our group really enjoyed the story, itâs great when tabletop gaming brings people together. We shared this story briefly on Instagram, but wanted to share it again here in a little more detail. We know it isnât news, but we hope you found it interesting.
Good Gaming people!
