Board gaming at The Treehouse

Our board games taster menu

If you're visiting The Treehouse without a clear idea of what to play, we offer a taster menu to help you find the right game(s) for your group. The menu is split into courses, designed to let you fit a 'starter', 'main course' and 'dessert' into your four-hour session. The courses work like this...

  • Starters: These games are quick to both learn and play, selected to warm up your brain cells and whet your playing appetite.

  • Main courses: The games in this section take a little more learning (in the region of 5-10 minutes with support from our handy gurus) and typically take 45-60 minutes to play. These games offer a heartier playing experience to satisfy all but the most ravenous gamer!

  • To finish: These will give your strategising muscles a rest and introduce a healthy dose of silliness - the kind of games that typically go down better later in the evening, perhaps with the help of a craft beer or two, dare we suggest...?

You can find the current version of our menu below. Expect changes over time as our games library grows!

 

Our games library

For those looking to explore beyond the taster menu, the list below gives a comprehensive list of what's in our library, to help you plan your visit or check to see if we have a particular title. The letter and number in brackets at the end refers to the co-ordinate of the shelf where you can find it.
