Tuesday 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.

    Big thanks to Alan for bringing and explaining Battlestar. Thoroughly enjoyable game... even though the Cylons won by default... A little. Great fun.

      Hey Craig, if you are organising a game of LoW for Wednesday, I maybe able to get in for night. Let me know

      April 17, 2013

    • Craig

      Cool. If so, ill post on Weenesday thread.

    Had a great time, but I'm going to have to start leaving work early from work in future to get there in order to avoid waiting to join games. Disappointed that I didn't get to play Cosmic Encounter after all the build up, but did walk away with an old (1986) copy for £3, so it's not all bad.

    Great games of Cash & Guns, Resistance and Werewolf. But'd be nice to play a longer game (with a board!) next time.

    I really like the look of Battlestar Galactica, despite never having watched the show (the game looks very much like an idea I was working on for a game of my own, which I've now had to radically rethink). So I'd love to play that some time in the future.

      My copy is now semi-permanently living in the library. Happy to teach & play anytime (but I only arrive at 8.25 on a tuesday).

      April 17, 2013

    • Simon B.

      Cool. I pretty much know how to play, from countless You Tube clips and downloads of the (current) rule book, but would love to get a game in. I may try to come down some day other than a Tuesday.

    Galapa go: amusing.
    Miam: surprising.
    Cash & Guns: shocking.
    Resistance: triumphing.
    Ultimate Werewolf: commiserating.
    Wee van Sank: Embarrassing.
    Zombie Dice: laughing.

    Thoroughly enjoyable, though think I may have acquired a sore throat from barking my way through the rules of Battlestar Galactica with the occasional nod towards accuracy. We muddled through somehow!

    April 16, 2013

    • Craig

      I had a fun time and that's the most you can ask from a good gaming session. Hopefully catch up with you there again soon.

      April 16, 2013

    • Dave C

      Thanks for teaching us the game. All good fun and hopefully catch up again with you all. I'm not attending next week and possibly the week after but I'll no doubt be around soon.

    Great joint win at Cosmic Encounter - team Healer & Warpish. Died horribly in Cash 'n' Guns. Helped the Resistance defeat those evil spies. Was a crap Prince in Werewolf. Thanks everyone!

    Great night!

    Really fun games of Power Grid and Gonzaga. Thanks for a great evening.

    April 16, 2013

  • Martin S

    Fun game of Game of Thrones in which I discovered Lannisport Brothel is not a character.

    April 16, 2013

  • Lloyd

    Will, are you finished with Confrontation yet? No worries if you're not. :)

    April 14, 2013

    • Will H.

      I'm afraid it's now an integral part of my board game box fortress. (I'll remember to bring it next week).

      April 16, 2013

  • Chris O.

    I'm struggling to come with a game to bring along. For some reason my brain keeps on saying 'Chaos in the Old World', which does sound appealing. Anyone up for that?

    April 15, 2013

    • Bijmeister

      By the way who is the 4th?

      April 16, 2013

    • Bijmeister

      Your game is shut down, I would have loved to observe your attempts at trying to match my superior strategy :p so maybe there might still be a chance?

      April 16, 2013

  • Liyana R

    Hi all! Newbie here. Looking forward to learning some new games this evening!

    April 16, 2013

  • Ronan

    Can I talk anyone into a game of Yedo?

    April 9, 2013

    • Steve G.

      Sorry guys I'm going to have to drop out as unable to attend tonight as have had a urgent matter come up. Hope you have a good evening am gutted I'm missing the fun

      April 16, 2013

    • Ronan

      Really sorry everyone but I am held up at work. I will be down but not in time to get a game of Yedo in. Apologies for messing up your plans.

    Hi, second visit after a fun first time, and Dave C expressed an interest in trying Battlestar Galactica which I'm going to bring. We need between 4 and 6 so anyone else want to join? You don't need to know the show (I've never seen it!), and here's why it's great: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/10/09/cardboard-children-battlestar-galactica/

      I have a class 6.30 to 8 20 minutes away. Would love to help teach but cannot.

      April 16, 2013

    • Behrooz S.

      Make sure to shout a lot and stare at each other until someone cries. :p

  • Robin B.

    I have Cosmic Encounter, Vikings and Love Letter with me tonight.

    April 16, 2013

  • Simon B.

    Does the club have a copy of Cosmic Encounter?

    I'm up for a game, have been considering buying it for a while, but not likely to get to the club til around 7 (because of work).

    April 12, 2013

    • Simon B.

      That'd be cool. I'm happy to get something to eat and drink if I get there with plenty of time. :-)

      April 15, 2013

    • Robin B.

      I will bring along my copy and will be there for about[masked] ish
