Boardgames in the News: Oxford Science Festival

Science Oxford (formerly known as The Oxford Trust) is a charitable organisation that was set up in 1985 with the mission to “encourage the pursuit of science and enterprise” and the long term aim of “making connections between science, enterprise and society.”  This year, as part of the Oxfordshire Science Festival, they are holding a boardgame evening including a talk by Reiner Knizia.  Dr. Knizia is the designer of over six hundred Euro games, including Keltis which won the Spiel des Jahres in 2008.  The event will be held at the Old Fire Station on George Street in Oxford on 28th June and will be followed by games in the Thirsty Meeples across the square.  Tickets can be booked online and are £10, though there is a 10% discount for tickets to Science Festival events booked before the end of May with the “Earlybird10” voucher code.
