Monday night gaming

If you are new to London on Board check out this guide for new players. If you have any questions on the night or are having trouble getting into a game, then look out for the night's host, listed to the right.

If you plan on attending please RSVP. We only have 50 chairs and it gets uncomfortable for everyone if more people than that turn up. Similarly, please change your RSVP to no if it turns out you can't make it.

Attention! LoB is part of NineWorlds, a weekend-long, multi-genre convention in London this summer, August 9th-11th, "the mutant hybrid of a science fiction convention crossed with a TED talks conference". It's full of: film and film-making, Doctor Who, science, feminism, Tolkien, SF&F academia, video games, roleplaying, Discworld, social gaming, SF&F,creative writing, Star Wars, queer fandom, steampunk, open culture, Star Trek, Whedon, skepticism, costuming, comics, anime and J-culture. And boardgaming of course. Get along to the forums for details and a longer discussion. Advance tickets on sale for a discount now.

    Very busy six-man Carcassonne game with the Inns & Cathedrals expansion although we scrapped their rules and only used them for extra tiles as we had lots of new players. Many, many hopeful farmers laying down in their fields. (Have the Traders & Builders expansion now so even more tiles next time!)

    Then a racing car game (name evades me) which had really interesting game mechanics.

    (Also had a few infuriating games of Zombie Dice on my iPhone whilst waiting for a sandwich.)

      Nice meeting you too Alex. And thank you to everyone I played games with, I actually really enjoyed top race eventhough I came last in the races.

    Thanks for playing Star Trek Catan with me!

      Hey, don't worry about buying something to bring unless you want to! There are always lots of games around! People often advertise (as I did) beforehand too. So, if something sounds interesting, you can always look it up on Board Game Geek and then ask to get a seat before you arrive. :)

    We Descenting Joe?

    February 28, 2013

    • Rob B.

      Descent looks a lot of fun, I'd love to play a game next time you guys are running it :)

      March 4, 2013

    • Joe B

      @Rob, it'll be back next Monday!

      March 5, 2013

  • Paul L.

    Am bringing 'Fauna' by Friedman Friese.

    February 28, 2013

    • Tommy H

      Paul, I would like to try Fauna. Looks simple and fun. Do you plan to start when John arrives?

      March 4, 2013

    • Alex R

      Thanks Paul. Enjoyed playing the pirate game yesterday and also Fauna. Very fun.

      March 5, 2013

  • Pouria

    Good games of Torres and Taluva, and some quick resistance to finish the night.

    March 5, 2013

  • Martin

    Nowhere near full again, despite RSVPs to the contrary, but a great night. Two games of Ankh-Morpork, then Fauna and Foppen. Apparently I am really good at estimating the weight of obscure marsupials. Who knew?

  • Riccardo F.

    Luke, Jo and Waiman, let me know if you are up for a rematch of Dungeon Lords.

    February 25, 2013

    • Jo

      Definitely keen! Should be there by about the same time ready to capture as many heros as possible. See you tomorrow

      March 3, 2013

    • Luke H.

      Heading over now. Be there in half an hour.

      March 4, 2013

  • Stuart (.

    I may bring along old skool DungeonQuest (the 1985 version). A baffling dungeon romp where you can die on your first go.

    February 28, 2013

    • Stuart (.

      No problem it's up to players and don't mind playing several games if there's the demand for it. I'll bring along some scans of the Heroes For Dungeonquest extension too (don't actually have the extension) so there's a bigger choice of characters.

      March 2, 2013

    • Alexander B.

      Hi Stuart, I'd love to play this if there is still a place around the table. I can very vaguely remember playing back in the 80s.

      March 4, 2013

  • Terry

    Hi everyone! this will be my first London on board meet, looking forward to it, hopefully you won't mind a (possibly) bumbling noob :)

    March 4, 2013

    • Martin

      Bumbling noobs are very welcome! Paul will be the host tonight so give him a shout if you need help. Everyone will be happy to welcome you though.

      March 4, 2013

  • Vivienne R.

    Anyone want to play Star Trek-themed Settlers of Catan. I've never played Catan before, which is probably a massive omission...

    March 1, 2013

    • Rok

      I'm up for it, if there's still space left..Have played Settlers of Catan before, but not the Star Trek edition..I'll be there at around 6pm

      March 4, 2013

    • Vivienne R.

      We'll be there at 6pm! We've only just got the game so it'll be a first time for us. Happily, I think it's an easy one.

      March 4, 2013

  • Alex R

    Hey there, no game organised for tonight so wondering if anyone is showing up who needs an extra player for Agricola or a worker placement game. Also keen to learn El Grande.

    March 4, 2013

  • Pouria

    Torres and Taluva in the bag.

    March 4, 2013

  • Mark C.

    Hi. I am going to bring the resistance. I've never played it but seen it being played and it looks great. Is there anyone out there prepared to teach me (and others) how to play? I understand its a good game to end an evening on...

    March 3, 2013

    • Jo

      Hi Mark, I've played the resistance quite a bit, it's a lot of fun! I have a very serious Dungeon Lords rematch to play but if you are playing at about the time we finish I would be more than happy to help explain.

      March 3, 2013

    • Mark C.

      Thanks jo, that's brilliant! I'll hang around, so hopefully we can persuade others to join in.

      March 4, 2013

  • Alexander B.

    I'm very keen to try a cooperative game. Is anyone planning to bring one along?

    March 4, 2013

  • Rob B.

    Not going to make it tonight I'm not well :(

    March 4, 2013

  • Terry

    Hi :)

    March 4, 2013

  • Rob B.

    I could bring King of Tokyo if anyone wants to play a fun 30 minute filler game for up to 6 people

    Hi there, I play a lot of board games with my friends but am new to London so thought I'd come along and meet some like minded people.

    March 3, 2013

  • Paul L.

    I think I am hosting tonight - please come and say hallo and if you are new to London on Board i'll get you into a game

    March 1, 2013

  • Jonnie M.

    Last one was great so looking forward to this. Does anyone have Eclipse? Would love to play this if possible!
