Simply unpack the box and play with the decks of cards without shuffling them. They will talk you turn by turn through the tutorial game.You play two people who meet and fall in love.

Tomb of Annihilation is a board game from Wizards of the Coast based on the adventure guide of the same name. It is a cooperative, which means all the players pit their wits against the game itself. Working together you must explore and fight your way through a tile-based tomb. The great thing about a cooperative is you can play by yourself or with friends. This joins other D&D games such as Lords of Waterdeep and Ravenloft, both of which are also available at David's.
Settlers of Catan has been a family favourite board game for many years now. It has a number of expansions, which have fleshed the core game out to create a number of different playing styles and scenarios. Players must gather resources to trade and build in order to win the game. At David's we stock the main game as well as many of the expansions. If you haven't yet tried this classic I recommend you give it go.
Plays in a similar manner to other tabletop skirmish games such as Games Workshops Kill Team or Necromunda, but in this instance you are pitting the beloved students of Hogwarts against the dark forces. Just like any collectable miniatures game you can add models such as Hagrid, a unicorn or Dementors. Each figure needs assembling and painting, which makes it as enjoyable for hobbyists as for gamers. We will be previewing the game on Harry Potter Night (Feb 7th), come along and see it in action.
