Board Games on Saturday

  • Aug 17, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

RSVP's for all weekend events open up approximately two weeks before the event itself.

Special Note: If you're a gamer visiting London from abroad, and would like to attend one of our meetups, send a message to one of the organisers (Jeff or Martin) with the dates you are in London and we'll make sure you get a slot at one of our upcoming events.

    Excellent, big selection and the games themselves were in mint condition.

    • Antony

      The people playing them... not so mint. :D

    Had a great time, introduced some newbies to Seven Wonders and got my bottom kicked, then played, T&E and didn't do much better, had a game of Ari and finished with Chronicles :) Super day, thanks everyone

    Galaxy Trucker went down well last week so I'm going to give it another go! What do you do? Build a space ship then watch as it blows up! Want the low down? Give the rules a read! http://riograndegames.com/getFile.php?id=329
    Fun for all the family! (As long as your family doesn't have 6 or more people in, because GT only plays 5!)
    If you're feeling daring, we can even try out the expansions! Looking at an 11am start, and it will take our voyage a couple of hours. Its also ranked 65th on BGG, which has to count for something, right?

    August 10, 2013

    • Will U.

      Ack, going to be 10-15 mins late. Grab a copy of coup or love letter to fill the time if you're still interested. Sorry!

      August 17, 2013

    • Liam K.

      Ha ok, will do Will, see you at about 11.15

      August 17, 2013

  • Antony

    Any BSG going on today?

    August 17, 2013

  • Tagore

    I will have Netrunner and Game of Thrones Card games with me, as always.

      Looking to meet other A:NR players - but might not be able to make Sat 17th ;-)

      August 16, 2013

  • Ethan M.

    Okay, time to get my Game of Thrones on!
    Need 5 others, or willing to do an expansion for just 4 instead of 6. Who's up for it?

    August 14, 2013

    • Ethan M.

      11am sharp. And if you do not know how to play, please take a look at the rules first.

      August 16, 2013

    • Steven J.

      Sounds good to me. I'll refresh myself with the rules, I've played it once in the past

      August 16, 2013

  • Lawrence

    Will bring TACTICAL RISK! A gamer friendly Improvement on the old die-rolling world conquest game.

    August 14, 2013

    • Asbjoern

      Sounds good, I'll try to be there, although I might come in a bit later but then I'll wait for another round :)!

      1 · August 16, 2013

    • Lawrence

      we'll be there from 11 but may play several games as its often shorter than classic rick

    First time coming. Looking forward to trying some new games.

    August 10, 2013

    • Chris O.

      Welcome to the group. There is always a host that looks after people and regulars fill the bar on the first floor with games for you to play. Please do not bring any food or drink with you as we could lose the venue if we do. Remember it's a pub that serves both :)

      2 · August 15, 2013

    • Will U.

      What Chris said. I believe that Rocky is the host this week but all the players here are friendly people. If you see a game on the bar you want to play just grab it, hold it over your head and just yell at people until you have enough to play. Or if you have no preference just hang around the bar and someone else will do that instead. If you turn up at 11 then you'll find lots of people doing that too.

      1 · August 15, 2013

  • Dean M.

    Dungeons & Dragons + Worker Placement = Lords of Waterdeep. It's a light Euro game, easy to learn and lots of fun! Anyone interested?

    August 12, 2013

    • Michael B.

      Sounds like fun, count me in.

    Anyone interested in wargaming? Got Napoleon's Triumph, TS, Guns of Gettysburg, No retreat and many more.

    August 11, 2013

    • Tim

      I would be very interested in Napoleon's Triumph, though I am booked in for an 11am game of Galaxy Truckers. Maybe if you're at a loose end a bit later in the day?
