The idea started from their love for board games and socialising with friends over many game nights! From living in Swansea for many years they realised how it was missing a destination which allowed people to socialise and have games nights!

They began their business plan, set out on a hunt for locations, overcame many obstacles and then..

Lockdown happened!

Everything was put on hold and with the devastation that lockdowns caused for the hospitality sector made it seem like the dream would never happen. Once restrictions began to ease the pair found themselves having countless games nights with friends  



This reignited the drive to make it a reality so they decided to dust off where they left off and took the plunge into the unknown eventually quitting their full time jobs! And thus Socialdice was born! Now a hub for people to socialise, meet new friends and spend some quality time together through the magic of board games!
