Saturday Afternoon 'Just Social' with Board Games

This month we are meeting a week later due to the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition.

12pm-6pm 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!

1. We'll be upstairs, but in case of any problems, you can call me on 07809601366.

2. 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]. 

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

Free! But please see membership dues explained below.

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.

    Hello everyone, just thought I'd let you know that this Meetup has finally ended at 3am, phew! There were four left standing at the end :-D

    For Mike L and I who turned up at 12pm, this was a marathon 15 hour gaming session. Poor Mike and Lynn are now on their way home, so it's a longer mission for them. I think we need contingency plans for this happening again. e.g. drivers maybe. Or toothbrushes. Zafar is on my sofa.

      Thanks all, it was a great day. One Night Ultimate Werewolf is definitely going on my (depressingly large) to-buy list.
      Been quite some time since I last did a 15 hour gaming session. I had an uneventful trip home, the night bus was as horrific as I remembered but it was got me home.

      Eve, over at the meetup group, London on Board, they go away for weekends just to play board games and hardly sleep for 3 days :-D I went once, it was the best weekend ever!

  • Mike E

    It was a great day - very relaxed with friendly people. Didn't get to give my lecture on GUT whilst playing a game - but maybe next time :)

    Excellent

    Great turn out. People are all very nice.

  • Obi

    Sorry, I couldn't make it. Cryptographic emergency came up. I am really looking forward to the next one (if you will still have me).

    1 · July 12, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      Yep - look forward to meeting you, Obi.

  • Helen H.

    Left my book in all bar one. Could someone pick it up for me please. Thanks

    1 · July 12, 2014

    • Michael Lloyd L.

      Jobeda has picked it up.

      July 13, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      I've got your book. I can give it to you at London Zoo next Friday or we can exchange before then. I live near Liverpool Street and work near Shadwell. Text me:[masked]

    Looking forward to the next one!

  • Chris

    Should be there just before 1 (because i was stupid and watched LA Confidential last night, having never seen it before).

    July 12, 2014

  • Mike E

    Currently looking at Kingdom Builder, Glory to Rome, Burn Rate, King of Tokyo. Thinking of Battlestar Galactica, Cosmic Encounter, Last Night on Earth, Pathfinder but weight constraints are paramount. Any thoughts?

    July 12, 2014

    • Michael Lloyd L.

      I would up for some BSG.

      July 12, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      Maybe you've left now, but I'd also be up for BSG. Risky though, as it could be 2-3- hours. And King of Tokyo is always great! Don't know most of the others.

      July 12, 2014

  • Mike E

    Thanks for that 'no pressure' welcome message, Jobeda. Board games veteran? Now people will expect me to be good at games and probably give a lecture on Grand Unified Theory at the same time :)

    1 · July 10, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      That would be awesome! I wanna see that please!

      July 11, 2014

  • Jobeda A.

    Welcome to the group, Mike E! I'm very excited about having another board games veteran attending our monthly board games afternoon. You'll recognise a few people from London on Board. Not many, a few, as we have many people new to the hobby, but I do try to funnel them over to you at LoB when they get hooked :-D

    July 10, 2014

  • Jobeda A.

    Who's bringing what next weekend? I have Galaxy Trucker, Settlers of Catan (this time at last!), Dominion, Smallword, all the Carcassonnes and maybe Seven Wonders. What I really want is for Mark to come back with Alien Frontiers.

    1 · July 7, 2014

    • Rachel B.

      I think Simon has all my games covered so I'll just bring myself. Werewolf sounds intriguing! :)

      July 8, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      Mike is coming, yippee! Congratulations on getting your game funded on Kickstarter and I look forward to receiving my copy in November which ofcourse I will bring to the group with pride :-D

      1 · July 10, 2014

  • Chris

    Will be there and not hung over this time!

    1 · July 10, 2014

  • Rachel B.

    I'll be late but I'll be there. I'll also bring some games :)
