Woodcraft 1st Boardgame Camp

Myself and Joe pulled up at Darsham Country Centre in the darkness around 9:30pm. They weren’t joking when they said it was close to the train tracks, it literary is the train station with platform 1 looking into the dining room and lounge. We went around the back to find our way in to find Fin and Stephen sitting in the dining room looking at a pile of games. This game pile would soon expand to fill the whole table as I emptied by game filled car boot to give us a massive range to try to play through.
