The Pacru Club currently just exists in Manchester.
An introductory game of Shacru or Azacru will generally take 30-50 minutes, but this then goes down dramatically (to 15-30 minutes or so for Azacru, 20-30 for Shacru) as you get used to the games. - The first few games of Pacru for a beginner may take over an hour (it depends how much you want to win/learn in your first game):
generally with more experienced players Pacru games are more in the region of 40-50 minutes.
We have plenty of boards and you can play the 2, 3 or 4 player version of Shacru, Azacru or Pacru as you choose.
August 2011 dates:
Every Friday lunchtime from about 1pm at Fletcher Moss Pub 1 William Street Didsbury. This is 2 minutes from the Wilmslow Road in Didsbury - going down Albert Hill Street (the road with the Post Office on it) - or from School Land via William Street itself (going off opposite La Tasca / Ogden Street / Milson Rhodes).
No games on 19th and 26th August due to the forthcoming championships in London, but please note you can still borrow a set - see below
Azacru has proved the game of choice so far, with occasional 3 player Pacru too.
Occasionally Fridays may not be possible (this includes Friday 26th August 2011 when the Pacru World Championship will be taking place in London).
The pub already runs a scheme where players can borrow games for a £1 donation to St Ann's Hospice - and they now have a Pacru 302 set (including rules) that can be borrowed.
Please see competitions page for details of Annual Championships (in London this year)
