Thames & Kosmos to host games nights at Maidstone Museum for launch of 12 new board games

To mark the UK launch of a dozen new board games in 2017, Thames & Kosmos has teamed up with Maidstone Borough Council to host games nights at Maidstone Museum.

The two evenings of fun form part of the activities surrounding the touring exhibition, Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered, organised by the V&A Museum of Childhood. The exhibition celebrates the joy and excitement of playing board games and invites visitors to think about their experiences of playing games, and what kind of player they are. 

The games nights are running on Thursday 27 July and Thursday 31 August, each with board game experts on hand to guide players through the titles. Included on the playlist are Thames & Kosmos classics such as Kahuna, Lost Cities, Imhotep and Dimension together with the latest arrivals Word Slam, Kerala and the phenomenally popular Exit Game range. Tapping into the current trend for escape room experiences, these team-play Exit Games bring all the problem-solving fun to the tabletop.

Joanna Drage, Sales Director at Thames & Kosmos, said: “Our games portfolio lends itself perfectly to these evenings, from our more strategic games for more seasoned players to the pick-up-and-play titles that serve as gateway games for newcomers – we're excited to be part of these celebrations around board gaming.”

The titles on offer provide enough diversity of gameplay so that everyone from seasoned board gamers to tabletop newbies will all be able to take part.

Lyn Palmer, Public Programming Manager for Maidstone Borough Council, added: “We're delighted to be hosting these games nights and thrilled to have such brilliant game titles from Thames & Kosmos.”
