Unfortunately this lockdown spelled the end of board games for a lot of us. We’ve been spending the past few weeks trying to replicate a friendly, gaming-centric space online.
Every Thursday evening we’ve been playing games with a small(ish) group of people, and now we’re at a point where we’re confident enough to invite everyone!
Tabletop Thursday is now going to be online every Thursday at the same time - 7pm to 10:30pm on the ReRoll Discord!
Discord is a community chat service (with text/audio) that is built specifically to run and manage online communities.
We’ve got a bunch of games for you’ll to play, you just need a laptop/phone with a working internet connection and a microphone to join!
Most games don’t need any apps or complicated downloads, you can just play it from your browser or inside Discord directly.
