We play small press games of imagination (for the most past)

What we do looks like this!

How it works: Come along for 12:00pm and meet folk. We then head to the Lounge Bar and pitching starts. Everyone who is going to run something fills in a form about their game, saying what it is they will run, up to how many players can be accommodated, and what the game is about.

It might be GM led or it might be more of a story game with the expectation that everyone contribute equally. When this is complete everyone says what it is they want to play: and hey, if it's your first time here you you get to choose first in what you play.

At 12:30 your group grabs a table and starts playing! The slot finishes around 4:30pm This process repeats at 5:00pm for the second slot.


Hey, here's a subset of the games that'll be pitched on the day. (More discussion here.)

  • Midsummer - play fairy tale characters trying to survive in the modern world.
  • Blood & Water - "Being Human" style RPG about a household of supernatural outcasts.
  • Duty and Honour/Beat to Quartersundertake missions for Wellington in this Napoleonic RPG.

    Sorry I couldn't come in the end. After a few days of fairly intense work on the editing and layout of SFBK I'm rather washed out :( Hope to make September though :)

    Grrr. Not only is the Northern Line totally screwed, but there's been a security alert at St Pancras which has screwed up all the northbound trains. Now officially late.

    I just found about this - it's down the street from where I live. Been GMing Pathfinder recently but interested in trying a less dice-based game.

    Sooo, is anyone going to be pitching something that I should already be getting excited about?

      Kingdom is pretty exciting.

    Howdy London lot, I'm wishing and hoping to make the next meet. Will you treat me to some nice games if I do show? - Toad

      Would be good 2cu :). In July I ran a playtest of a game about Italian nobles, developed by some bloke in Donetsk (Russia? Ukraine?). He's got an English name though, must be an expat of some sort. Anyway, it was good fun. I might run it again this week :).

    Currently planning to run/participate in Kingdom, the new game by Ben "Microscope" Robbins which Kickstarter backers got last week (I suspect this may be popular this month) and Shock: Social Science Fiction (which I suspect won't be).
