Board Gaming Weekend Break

10 August 2023

When was the last time you indulged in an intense game of Concordia?, planned the conquest of the Universe in Twilight Imperium 4, or battled to raise monuments to the Gods in Seven Wonders? Whether it’s been ages, just last night, or if you’re fascinated to join a new hobby, Full Board Gaming offers a unique and exciting proposition: a delightful holiday experience centred around the sociability, camaraderie, and excitement of board gaming. Our first event is set to take place in the resort town of Torquay, and our company curates board game-centric holidays that both newbies and die-hard gamers will adore.

Why Board Games?

Board games have been a cornerstone of entertainment for centuries, transcending cultures and generations. They bring people together in a way few other activities can. But there’s more to these games than just the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.

Firstly, board games are great mental workouts. Complex games like Clank! or Dune: Imperium require strategic thinking, problem-solving, and are seasoned with a dash of diplomacy. They can enhance cognitive functions, improve memory, and even foster better learning abilities.

Secondly, Gaming fosters better social interactions. Board gaming encourages conversation, collaboration, and healthy competition, which can create stronger relationships and deep friendships. The cooperative elements of games like Pandemic can help improve teamwork, while social deduction and bluffing games like Werewolf or The Resistance can enhance logical thinking and negotiation skills.

Lastly, board games provide stress relief. In our digital-driven world, unplugging and immersing oneself in a game of Just One or Ticket To Ride provides a chance to relax, rewind, and refocus. The simplicity of the action, combined with the complexity of the strategy, can be a welcome diversion from the pressures of daily life.

Why a Board Gaming Holiday?

At Full Board Gaming, we embrace the power and charm of gaming and weave it into the very fabric of your holiday. Based at an amazing resort in Torquay, you can enjoy the beautiful landscapes, the indoor pool and serene spa, punctuated by exciting board gaming sessions. From classic games like Carcassonne to recent favourite roll-and-writes like Ganz Schön Clever, or even to the full table-hogging majesty of Civilization and Twilight Imperium 4, Full Board Gaming has a great selection in our library that caters to all tastes and skill levels with plenty of space to play them in comfort.

With a Full Board Gaming holiday, the experience goes beyond just the games. Participants who engage in advance in our Discord channels can enjoy themed competitions around popular titles and fun gaming tournaments. It’s not just about winning or losing; it’s about the shared experiences, the laughter, the intense debates, and the thrilling moments of revelation and triumph. It’s about the stories that remain long after the game pieces have been returned to their boxes.

If you are looking for a holiday where you can disconnect from the digital world, forge meaningful connections, and stimulate your mind, Full Board Gaming offers the perfect getaway. Come, roll the dice/shuffle the deck/arrange the meeples, and let the games begin!
