Board Games on Sunday!

Every week, London-on-Board hits The Old Star pub in Westminster for a few pints, some good pub grub, and of course, lots and lots of board games.

We're immediately across the road from St. James' Park tube station, so it really can't get more convenient, and we're normally there for 9 solid hours of gaming goodness!!!

Newbies especially welcome and if you get there at 11:00 a.m. prompt, you're most likely to not have to wait around to hop into a game straight-away.

    Glad I came off waiting list because I was introduced to more new games. Enjoyed playing Divinare, Tichu, Ticket to ride and Power grid. Look forward to international table top day. I will get to play newbie friendly game.

    Thanks for another nice Sunday at LoB guys. Although it turned a bit sour at some point when my Robo Rally was bathed in somebody's beer. I probably should make it a habit to ask people (including myself) to leave their drinks off the table. There is wisdom in Jeff's way... ;-)

    I am in . Thx. Like to play ticket to ride. I am on my way so please keep me a space. Hope to get there 11.20 am

    March 24, 2013

    • Timo H.

      Oh! We need to organise a game of Ticket to Ride at a future meetup! Does either of you own that game?

      March 25, 2013

  • Timo H.

    Just realised that the waiting list system could work better. Some people "jumped" Karina and Steve, simply because they RVSP'd with +1/+2. Can something be done about the settings?

    March 23, 2013

    • Jeff C.

      Yup. I'm experimenting with the numbers to take account of the no shows. Risks overbooking but when the weather is as bad as it is this weekend I think it's worth trying.

      March 24, 2013

    • Timo H.

      I agree. Is there a way to push regular no-shows to the bottom of the waiting list? ;-)

  • Fearghal Mac G.

    I'm going to be coming around 1.30pm. BSG.

      Nope can't go. :(

      March 24, 2013

    • Antony

      Good job! ;) You don't deserve BSG. *sobs*

    Any space?

    If/When I come off the waiting, this is the thread for Game of Thrones.

      I'm in for the 2nd table if it gets off.

      March 24, 2013

    • Tim K.

      I'll be there in 10.

    Just read now that I am in.
    Need a shower first, then I am out the door.

    Agricola at 11?

    A newbie LoB. Played some awesome games yesterday and hunger for more new games but liked the ticket to ride and the others but can't remember names.

  • Oliver

    Anyone bringing Resistance tomorrow? I need to get my own copy but money is tight right now :(

    March 23, 2013

    • Edward M.

      Apologies, I think I've managed to leave it at a friends as I can't find it.

      March 24, 2013

    • Barry M

      In that case I shall bring a copy and leave it on the bar upstairs. :)

      March 24, 2013

  • Tom W.

    I could be persuaded to bring my precious partially punched vintage copy of Dune if there's enough interest (ie 6 people).

    Marten - I'll bring Mage Knight, though having played it solo, I'm thinking it's best kept to 2-3 players, and I'd rather play something with more people as my first game of the day and try to squeeze Mage Knight in later.

    I'll also bring Tzolk'in and probably Eclipse + expo.

    March 21, 2013

    • Full-On (.

      Not looking likely but i would be up for dune if 4 more people fancy it

      March 23, 2013

    • Tom W.

      Paul - if you're up for Dune let's exchange details tomorrow and do it some other time. I just played Twilight Imperium today and am not sure I could handle another marathon tomorrow.

      March 23, 2013

  • Mike

    And also bringing Android: Netrunner, hoping to get a few learning games in. But happy to bring just about anything: any interest in Space Empires: 4x, Brass, Sword of Rome...?

    March 19, 2013

    • Jason H.

      Want to play netrunner so bad!

      March 22, 2013

    • Mike

      Happy to teach it! (And learn it.)

      March 23, 2013

  • Mike

    Anyone interested in some epic Eclipse? Would love to try it with 9 players and all the expansion rules.

    March 18, 2013

    • Tom W.

      I could be persuaded, but I think you'll struggle to get 9, given the 45 person capacity. I would be interested in a larger number of people (6+) with the "2 players taking turns at once" variant. The other issue there might be space. I don't mind bringing my set if you have other stuff to load up with.

      March 21, 2013

    • Pol B.

      Sign me up for Eclipse! Well, I'm still the waiting list, what time are you planning to start?

      March 23, 2013

  • Edward M.

    Riccardo, I'll bring along Mage Knight as requested. There's space for 1 more if anyone's interested.

    March 22, 2013

    • Tom W.

      I'd quite like to take the third spot. I've played the game solo.

      March 23, 2013

  • Frank M.

    New to LOB, not new to board games.
    I could bring event cards for Small World and Easter Egg Cards for Munchkin

    March 22, 2013

  • Victoria

    How come in previous weeks 60 or more could attend, and now only 45 can sign up? It's the same venue, so I find this confusing.
    :-(

    March 6, 2013

    • Edward M.

      It should display in the correct order with the person next to get in at the top, thus at the time I'm writing this I'm first on the waitlist.

      March 20, 2013

    • Edward M.

      Or exactly what Vika said.

      1 · March 20, 2013

  • Timo H.

    Time for some old school dungeon crawl adventure gaming. Greg and Jason already signed up. 2 more seats to have. Start 11:00. Oh... and the name of the game is: Advanced HeroQuest.

    March 18, 2013

    • Fearghal Mac G.

      Sign me up! I haven't played that game for years. Time for a real retro feel. :)

      March 18, 2013

    • Timo H.

      You know the rules? Great! We found our GM! ;-) Hehe, I have read the rules a while ago, never played the game, though. We thought we'll just go with the Skaven adventures that come with the box. I can be both hero player or GM, I don't mind.
