Pie maker Pork Farms, part of Addo Food Group, has relaunched the Board Games Championships following its success last year.

Partnering with the Micropub Association, the brand has turned a traditional British hobby into a nationwide contest that will be held at micropubs around the country.

Contestants will battle it out over five staple board games provided by a leading board games including Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Jenga.

Micropubs are invited to sign up and get their customers involved in the contest.

Championship heats will take place at participating micropubs across the country from Sunday 26 February to Sunday 26 March 2017, culminating in the reveal of the finalists who will attend the grand final during National Board Games Week on 8-14 May.

The winner will be presented with a framed certificate, pork pie trophy and a stack of board games.

Last year’s final was held at the One Inn the Wood in Orpington, Kent, where Tim Bentley was crowned board games champion.
