The Show to end all Board Game Shows. You don’t have to be a Geek or Nerd to enjoy this PG13, hugely innuendo filled show! Kids won’t get the underhand jokes- bring them! Want to see comedians under pressure (without playing Queen), want to see comedians squirm (without improv), and to be part of the greatest (board game) show Edinburgh has to offer? It’ll be an hour well spend, and not a monopoly piece in sight. ENJOY!

Really good fun show. Guest panel and James were brilliant. Makes me want to dust off a couple of games when I get home.

The one show we make a point to see every year, sometimes more than once. Its great fun with a great host, and because its different comedians and different games every day it never gets old. Highly recommended, will be back next year.

A great way of fimding new board games to add to the collection! James was a fab host and all the participants were so fun to watch. I particularly enjoyed Yogi!

Brilliant, good selections of games and guests! Would have loved to go back every day! Only downside is it was only a hour I just wish it could have been longer! Great addition to the free festival

Friendly, energetic host James Cook brings the show to life with a host of fellow comedians to provide laughs for the whole room, kids and adults alike. A brilliant post lunch show with a great, friendly atmosphere.
