London D&D Meetup - Beginner Tuesdays - RSVP required

Normally in Crosse Keys upstairs rear function room, go past the rope barrier and up the stairs (the 'private function' is us!). Otherwise in downstairs rear room. Games Calendar

RSVP Policy

You must RSVP. If you have not RSVP'd you can not attend that Beginners Tuesday event, and if you do turn up you may be required to leave. If you did not RSVP before the Meetup filled up, you should still RSVP, and will then go on the Waiting List. RSVPs close 3.30pm on the day.

1. If you have not attended before, check back then and see if you have made it onto the list - if so, you can attend. If not, better luck next time.

2. If you have attended before, and have a spot in a GM's game, but are still on the waiting list at 3.30pm on the day, you can still attend, and we will try to get you a spot, but please try to avoid this situation if possible.

New Players

Come along at 6.30pm and if you have RSVP'd we will try to find you a game. You may wish to contact a GM in advance about joining their game - see below. You don't need to bring anything, but dice (including 20-sided), pencil, and paper are always useful. Optionally you can bring a pregenerated character (usually 1st level) and miniature; a rule book for your preferred game system is also useful.

Our Games

You can message our GMs via their Profile pages (linked below) to ask about available spaces in their games. Even if a game's regular slots are full there may still be spaces on the night for drop-in players due to player absence etc.

GMing a game

If you are interested in GMing any RPG at Beginners Tuesday please contact me, Simon, via PM or thread comment post. Games running on Beginners Tuesday should be suitable for beginners, and should be open to new players if there is space available, either a temporary spot/drop-in player, or potentially long-term. I normally use six players + GM as a guideline maximum number per table; let me know if your game can only take a smaller number.

4e D&D Resources

1) 4e D&D Quickstart Guide

2) 4e D&D Player's Handbook on amazon

3) If you don't have a Player's Handbook or DDI subscription you may find WoTC's free, updated postings of most of the 4e PHB classes useful (no Paladin or Ranger, sorry):

Fighter Warlord Warlock Cleric Rogue Wizard

For GMs - don't like prep? Use Sly Flourish's GM Cheat Sheet with Monster Manual 3 on a business card and never prep again! :D

    Good though a bit of confusion initially when we got moved rooms.

    Not happy at the Crosse Keys cancelling my booking. :( Games were fine though. :)

      I think the manager dislikes us. Whenever I try to get a room, he claims that they're occupied.

    Great fun. Very informative and really good company.

    Hey, I would love to come along tonight but wanted to know if there will be any space in any games (wasn't sure if they might be a bit far along by now)?

      Come along, we almost always have space for everyone who replies within the RSVP limit, and you're number 45 of 45. :) Only exception might be if a GM cancelled at short notice.

    IMPORTANT INFO: BEGINNERS TUESDAY IS GOING WEEKLY! From Tuesday 4th June. I'll be sorting out games slots; GMs let me know if you want to GM on the alternate weeks.

      Thank god. It's impossible to get a table on the other Tuesdays.

      Hey Simon, nice work! I would like to stay fortnightly if possible, dont mind which week i end up on. Cheers!

    Hi. I wanted to try D&D and this seems like good opportunity. Is it ok if I come and never played the game before? Plus, I only have dice, no rule book or anything. Besides, I play MTG and Warhammer 40k.

    May 13, 2013

    • Simon N.

      I'll have a temp space I can use if necessary for the first person who can't get a game otherwise. No permanent places.

      May 14, 2013

    • Simon N.

      Click the links above to the listed game threads. These usually indicate if the game has places free.

    Sorry to all who this inconveniences, but I will have to drop out after only week - I dont think my work timetable allows for this commitment. More detail in my thread. Sorry Tiff and Simon, I'm sure this is a real pain.

    I'll be joining Dana again, if he doesn't mind my ceaseless questions about game mechanics!

    May 9, 2013

    • Dana

      I don't mind. You can play a pre-generated character again or we can mock-up one for you on the day.

  • Tiffany
