Play games

Welcome to our regular Wednesday night board games session: 3 - 4 hours of good fun and the perfect way to break up the working week.

We play a wide variety of games. There will be some that you will have heard of and some that you may not have heard of. Some will last a whole evening, whilst others will only be a hour or so. Some are seriously strategic, but most are fairly light hearted. In short, something for everybody!

We'll be playing in groups of 3 - 6 players, so there's always plenty of choice each week. If there's a particular game that you want to play, then please suggest it in the comment's section below or else sign up if somebody has already suggested a game.

Of course, everybody and anybody is welcome to join :)

    Really ought to explain the game so you all know what your getting into. Its not deep strategy but will see each player playing as an investigator and seeking clues in a mysterious mansion. The play is tabletop, RPG light. So its more about coming together as a team. I will be playing as Keeper and possibly be doing my level best to kill you all. Mwa hah hah. So your best chance of winning will be team play. The game should be pretty easy to pick up. Everyone should have a good understanding of the general principle by the first 2 turns. Most of the emphasis of this game is theme and story rather than complex tactical decisions. The theme is based on the works of HP Lovecraft, a gothic horror writer. The same theme as Elder Sign which has had a few plays at the club.

      You can reply directly to somebody instead of starting a new comments thread off each time, you know, Vaughan. Look I'm doing it now.

    I'd like to play race for the galaxy with some people who know the guy. I'm new to it and I'd like to get good. I can bring my copy, but I'd love to try the expansions if anyone has them

    • Jonathan B.

      Thank you Gabriel. Who else wants to play? I know someone in the club sold and bought a copy, so that's 2 more experienced players. I'm particularly interested in the first expansion with the goals

    Afternoon all. For those interested, the totally awesome superhero card game, Sentinels of the Multiverse is now back in the UK. I shall be placing my stock order on Monday morning. It's taken well over a couple of months for this title to come back in stock, so if you are interested, now is the time to heroically leap into action. Spandex not included!

    What kind of games will be on?

    July 10, 2013

    • Dave P.

      Hi Elliott, we usually use the week's comments section to suggest and discuss which games we'd like to play next, so watch this space over the coming days. Also, have a look at some of the past meet ups to see what we've played each week previously.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
