Celebrate Brighton in board game form
It’s now in a glorious third addition, BN1: The Board Game recreates all of Brighton & Hove’s brilliance, eccentricities, and singularities to your table-top. It celebrates a place where individuality is a competition, self-consciousness is an artform and nobody can hear the real world over the frantic acitivity of baristas. In short, the perfect setting for a day out.
You and up to four friends must travel the length and breadth of the city looking for interesting things to do and see. And adventure can be found in the most unlikely places. From the South Downs to Black Rock, the day is yours to spend as you please. You could explore the obvious sights or uncover hidden corners. Players discover local characters, eccentrics, celebrities and city events, or just go shopping. It’s a sublime mix of questing, micro-management and a little luck.
