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.

Please note - we are now UPSTAIRS!

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 NOTE - we are now upstairs!

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.

    Hi, I just stumbled across this group and it looks interesting.

    I have quite a few board games and would be happy to bring along as many as I can carry -- I see someone mentioned a "suitcase full of games", so should just bring everything I've got?

    1 · June 6, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      Great! Welcome to the group. Yes, please feel free to bring whatever you can fit in a case :-)

      June 6, 2014

  • Jobeda A.

    Also, please take a look at Mike's game, Waggle Dance, on Kickstarter and please support him if you can. He hosts this board games Meetup a lot and we are very grateful to him for bringing his suitcase full of games each time! He bought a demo of Waggle Dance to this meetup a couple of months ago and it looks like great fun! http://www.meetup.com/GeekChic/messages/boards/thread/44498742

    Hey guys, I forgot to bring Catan and borrow Ankh Morpok, so if anyone has these, please bring as they are the best 'gateway' games. There's a chance I might have them by Saturday, but a small one. Gateway games are 'starter' games for people who are new to serious board gaming, so no-one needs to worry about not knowing the games, we always have loads of newbies and it's our pleasure to hook you in to our favourite pastime :-)

    I'm thinking of coming. How much of a huge jerk would I look if I brought Risk/Star Wars Monopoly?

    June 5, 2014

  • Shilpi

    I think I am from Planet Alien as got no clue on any of these games though would love to try and learn :)

    1 · June 5, 2014

    • Michael Lloyd L.

      Don't worry we all be happy to show you ropes and as Rachel says above, most people learn at least one new game. :)

      June 5, 2014

  • Darren Zoggy M.

    Hi, If I don't know the rules is it ok to still come along and join in? I'm looking for something new and different to try out :)

    June 5, 2014

    • Rachel B.

      Most people learn at least one new game each time, no problem at all :)

    First timer so don't want to step on any toes if people already have games in mind, got a fair collection, was thinking of bringing along Alien Frontiers as its pretty easy to pick up, fast pace, and has a nice luck/skill balance.

    1 · June 3, 2014

    • Rachel B.

      No toes to be stepped on, everyone is easy going. Alien Frontiers sounds like it fits the bill perfectly.

      June 5, 2014

  • Michael Lloyd L.

    I'll arrive late (1-2pm) and be bringing Trains (deck building card game), Creationary (Lego party game) and of course the required Fluxx & Zombie Dice.

    I wish I could go! Sadly, after eight wonderful months living in London I have to move back to my native NYC next week. I wish I had discovered your meet-up sooner. But since I am determined to find a way to move back here permanently, hopefully I'll be able to become a member in the near future. Enjoy the games!
