Saturday Afternoon 'Just Social' with Board Games

12pm-5pm for lunch, socialising, games and then we can just stay here afterwards for a glass of wine if people want.

Feel free to turn up at any time during this slot. But please note the later you come the longer you might wait to join a game. If this happens, there's usually others who are in between games to talk to.











Please bring any boardgames you have. We're not talking about Monopoly or Trivial Pursuit, PERlease!!!! We mean strategy games, like these on Boardgame Geek.

I have a few board games I'll be bringing so we shouldn't be short. But still bring some if you have any. I have Seven Wonders, Carcassone (with various expansions), Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Galaxy Trucker, Smallworld and a few card games, Fluxx etc. Anything you can add to this very basic list would be just fab!

NB - I am actively looking for people with lots of board games to jointly host this event with me periodically. If interested please email me directly at [masked]. 

If you are bringing a game, please list it in the comments below so that people don't end up carrying around duplicates.

GETTING THERE

All Bar One in Bishopsgate is about a minute's walk down the road from Liverpool Street Station.

NB, there are two All Bar Ones on the Mezzanine level on Bishopsgate - the one you want is on the corner near the weird sculpture pictured. The All Bar One entrance is up the stairs under the blue-grey arches.

    Hi everyone. Sorry for very late notice on this but I have a family emergency and have to go join them. I can't make it today but there are many regular members present and many with board games. I'm sure they will all make you feel very welcome. Everyone is very friendly I promise. I don't want to ruin anyone's plans for the day so please do attend if you intended to. Newbies will be made very welcome by other members. Regulars please make everyone welcome and sorry about this. If I get away at all before 5 I will try to swing by. Thanks and sorry. Please enjoy the afternoon.

    Hello everybody, new member!

    Hmmm, well, not sure what kind of boardgames are generally preffered. Closer to Zombicyde, Talisman and other themed games, or more like Pandemic, Carcassone etc? Got a lot of crazy themed boardgames, but it's not everyone cup of tea.

    To be safe, I think I'll bring King of Tokyo, Cosmic Encounters and Pandemic. Unless you lovely people have ideas/requests?
