Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! As the next set of lockdown restrictions have been lifted we’re finally able to play CQB again and it's great to be back! My local CQB site is The Department CQB in Leicester (you can check out the full review here) and it's undergone a revamp during the last lockdown.

As part of the revamp, the safe zone has been extended to include a players lounge that is equipped with a vending machine and arcade machines including a punchbag machine, Time Crisis II, The House of the Dead and air hockey!

For those who don't fancy playing arcade games, there are sofas to chill on and a flat-screen TV with Netflix!

The game zone has also been completely overhauled during the last lockdown. Those of us who have played the Department before will remember the chipboard and plywood structures in their usual colour - the site has now been painted grey and had new structures/props installed to fight around.

Game times are as follows: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 6 pm – 9 pm. 

The site is closed on Mondays and Thursdays. There are 2 sessions on a Saturday: 10 am – 1 pm (arrival at 9.30) and 2 pm – 5 pm (arrival not before 1.30 pm) and the Sunday session is 10.30 am – 1.30pm.

Game prices are £20 (members pay £18 a game) The memberships are £50 per year and they give players two free games per year and it gives you 10% off every game after that (making them £18 down from £20). It also gives you 10% off gas and BBs in the store!
