"Portobello Road, Portobello Road. Street where the riches of ages are stowed. Anything and everything a chap can unload, is sold off a barrow down Portobello Road. You'll find what you want on the Portobello Road."

Now if you're old enough to know where this little ditty came from*, you're pretty old man...

but once a year (sometimes twice) we invite nerds from far and wide to head to TCOW and disperse their unwanted plastic, metal, cardboard and resin to some other poor sod to store at their place, typically for cash but often for barter! It is the event known as BLUDGEFEST, and it was AWESOME!

So many different things for so many different games all looking for a new home!

And so many willing recipients!

They came from far and wide to sample the wares...

So much stuff!

But of course, being a club day, that also meant gaming was in action as well! There was X-Wing, Epic, Dystopian Wars, Kings of War and Blood Bowl all played.

Blood Bowl was awesome! Daryl and I played to get some practice in before SteamApe at the end of February.

And I should know better than to use Dwarf dice when playing Chaos...

And finally, Mike and Andrew broke out some nostalgia in the form of the old Decipher Star Trek CCG. Good times!

We closed the day with a rousing few games of Exploding Kittens! MEOW....BOOM!@@@@@@

And so Bludgefest ended....and it was great!


* It's from Bedknobs and Broomsticks....which even features invading Germans.
