To celebrate the recent launch of their new boardgame, Perigon, Clarendon Games, an independent boardgame company, will host The Perigon World Championships at Chelsea speakeasy Barts on 10th June. Celebrities, journalists and members of the public will all do battle at what has been touted as the new chess to win a truly unique prize.
Perigon received a huge reception when it launched and is rapidly establishing itself as a classic abstract strategy board game. It has been featured in The Daily Telegraph, City AM and The Evening Standard, was the best-selling Christmas game at Fortnum & Mason and will be launching in Barneys New York and other major department stores this year.
The Perigon World Championships will be the perfect bank holiday treat for those looking for something different to do. The competition will kick off at 6.30pm and will feature four rounds, pitting journalists, celebrities and international chess masters against each other, as well as Perigon inventor, Will Sorrell, who will be trying to prevent being beaten at his own game!
The prize for the winner will not only be the honour of being crowned the first ever Perigon World Champion but also a unique premium set of Perigon worth £600. This stunning British-made set has been crafted from premium marble and granite and hand-finished to produce a luxury one-off piece of the finest quality.
