Blue Herring Games is having a little hiatus!

We have closed the store while Owner Steve is off on a deployment to the Philippines with ShelterBox. ShelterBox is an international aid organisation, focussed on helping who have lost their home in natural disasters or conflict. For more information about Shelterbox, head over to:


We'll be reopening 29th November. Feel free to browse the store until then, but to avoid confusion on game deliveries the checkout system has been closed.

Suddenly you have an excuse to play some of your older classics.
Happy board gaming! 


      Blue Herring Games

      ~ because life's too short for another game of Monopoly ~

      Blue Herring Games celebrates modern board gaming with a range of reviews, player guides, products, and general musings.

      Our focus is on increasing the exposure of quality board games to those seeking a new diversion.

      • No pop culture toys ('bobble heads' confuse and slightly scare us)
      • No video games (we never completed 'Frankie Goes to Hollywood' on the Commodore 64, and perhaps never really recovered)
      • No Monopoly (surely everyone already has a copy?)
      • Just quality board games!
      Through board games, we have a chance to sit down with family and friends, relax, talk, have a drink, occasionally curse, frequently laugh. It is hopefully a fun experience. It is always a social experience. Enjoy!
