Rules of Play: Board Game Experiences

Are you planning an upcoming event and want some kind of extra 'pizzazz' to make it memorable? Have you got a cafe or a bar you'd like to fill with people on a regular basis?

Perhaps you're hoping for a new, fully inclusive corporate team-building activity?

Or maybe you're in charge of the events programme at an arts centre and you want to offer your customers something different...

Our board game experiences in Cardiff, Bristol and beyond are designed to bring the fun of gaming to you, whether it's at your wedding, your corporate event, your school, your library - wherever!

The concept's simple - we'll come along to your event and bring piles of our demo games, along with our expert games teachers who'll run the entire thing (if you so wish!) leaving you free to relax and enjoy the event.

Our Board Game Experiences deliver:

  • A brand new crowd of customers in your commercial space 
  • Regular 'fully booked' evenings in your hospitality venue
  • Marketing ammunition you can shout about
  • Happy employees who can bond and build team relationships  
  • Attendees & guests who'll definitely remember your event
  • A new and unique 'edge' to your regular events calendar

Our experiences are ideal for...

  • Weddings and large parties
  • Libraries
  • Schools and universities
  • Pubs, restaurants and bars
  • Corporate team-building events
  • Art centres 
  • Community spaces
  • Charity events

Where we offer our services

We deliver our board game experiences all around South Wales and the South West. With our flagship store in Cardiff, and our second store in Bristol, we can travel and deliver our event services to Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, the Valleys and Bristol.

What happens during an event

Our games teachers will arrive with hundreds of demo games, tailored perfectly for your event. With thousands of games to choose from, they'll only bring what your group would love - from children's games and family adventures to party games for corporate gatherings.

Everyone will split off into groups and choose the games they'd like to play. If they don't feel comfortable learning the rules, our expert staff are on hand to help them out throughout the entire event.

We'll help to facilitate larger party games, and we always love recommending the right game to the right group.

At the end of the event, we'll pack up our games before leaving - so no need for you to worry about the logistics. We take care of it all!


A bilingual events service 

With fluent Welsh speakers in our team, we're proud to offer our board game experiences entirely in the Welsh language. Great for Welsh speakers - and Welsh learners who want a fun way to practise!

What our previous clients say

“Cardiff University’s Widening Participation team has worked with Rules of Play many times during our Discovery Project sessions and our summer schools. We have been very pleased with their professional and friendly service every time! The Rules of Play team has always been willing to help, running fun board game sessions as well as bespoke D&D One-Shot adventures, both of which proved to be a big hit among our participants. We look forward to working with you again in the future!”
