A games company is on the hunt for someone in Lancashire to stay at home in their pyjamas playing board games… and get paid for it.

Getting stuck into a good family board game is a key part of the Christmas festivities, and to make this year even more entertaining, one lucky Lancashire games enthusiast is being offered the chance to trial a selection of retro-inspired games as John Adams’ very first ‘Board Director’.

Stepping into the role, the successful Lancashire candidate will have the chance to test out classic games including Rummikub, Silly Sausage, Ghost Castle and Go for Broke, whilst taking home a £500 ‘salary’, plus a selection of board games to keep and play to their heart’s content.

The lucky candidate will simply be required to play the games at home with loved ones and feedback on their experiences to the John Adams HQ.

Card shuffling pros who can tell their Scrabble from their Scribblish, are urged to apply for the once-in-a-lifetime role, where playing games and having some good competitive family fun is all part of the job.

Simon Pilkington, group managing director at John Adams, said: “For those who have a passion for all things gaming, we’re seeking demon dice rollers and sophisticated shufflers in Lancashire to step up and take our newly created role of ‘Board Director’.

“The only work involved is playing board games and spending quality time at home with loved ones in your comfies, what could be better at Christmas?

“At John Adams we love bringing people together through our games, and as part of the new role, we want feedback on all gaming experiences, so we can continue to innovate and ensure the best playing experience for our customers.
