Board Games on Saturday

  • Aug 24, 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.

    Had a exceptionally long game of Lords of Waterdeep thanks to us playing with the expansion that came out last week. Also played Mascarade that I really enjoy and finished off the day with a strangely long game of Hab & Gut

  • Chris O.

    I'm going to bring along Lords of Waterdeep + the newly released expansion, about which I know nothing about, but I'm sure it'll be fun. That is provided my copy arrives in time! Anyhoo, sign up below if you're interested.

      Well played and won Tom, excellent set-up and explanation again Chris, thanks all for a great, epic game of Lord of Waterdeep. I'll definitely be playing this again.

    August 24, 2013

    • Alastair

      Thanks Sam, for taking me through a bunch of new games. Will definitely be coming again!

      August 24, 2013

  • Ethan M.

    Does anyone fancy a game of eclipse? (and can bring it)

    August 21, 2013

    • Tom W.

      Any of you coming on Sunday? There's spots going on a game with expoes then if interested

      August 23, 2013

    • Ben H.

      I'll try to be there! ;-)

    D: Sorry, currently on the train up towards birmingham, grandma's in hospital so rushing up to see her. I hate to do a last minute cancellation when there's so many on the wait list D: Might have to cancel on Monday as well, need to see how it goes but should know by this evening

    August 24, 2013

  • Edward M.

    Anyone up for a game of Mage Knight?

    August 22, 2013

    • Marten W.

      The train is delayed, I'll be there at around 11:45

      August 24, 2013

    • Ben H.

      mage knight players! Hope to meet you all later in the afternoon! Maybe you'll be up for game number 2! ;-)

      August 24, 2013

  • Jeff C.

    At the hosts' table we'll be starting with "A Brief History of the World" - the game that Risk -SHOULD- have been... you control different civilisations across the ages, attempting to control the most land before they inevitably decline (a bit like Small World or Vinci but with dice and events...). Newbies welcome. Leave a message here if interested...

    • Antoine

      Would love to play!

      August 24, 2013

  • Lawrence

    Shall I bring Tactical Risk again? or a XXXX Space game?

    August 19, 2013

    • Jeff C.

      Is Tactical Risk a variant/expansion of regular Risk? (And is the best "tactic" not to play?)

      August 23, 2013

    • Lawrence

      Its an improvemt on classic risk. Lol. Tactical play and diplomacy over dice rolls to win.

    No bank holiday Monday session?

      I think it actually works the other way round... good weather means we -get- the pub, bad weather means we don't. His business goes down when it's sunny - everyone picnics in the park... When it rains, they spend more time in the pub, hence ne needs more space..

      August 23, 2013

  • Sam H.

    If I make it will be brining Thunderstone Advance (mixed up for Epic), and D&D boardgames (Wrath of Ashardalon adventures with heroes from all the games).

    August 23, 2013

  • Ben O.

    Would anyone be up for learning "Belfort" if I bring it? Aside from that, I'm feeling like a gentle day of gaming: Tokaido, Castles of Burgundy, Village Inn, and so on so will put them in the bag too.

    August 20, 2013

    • Nathan P.

      I would be interested in learning Belfort. I also know Castles of Burgandy and have played The Village (the base game for "Village Inn", if I'm not mistaken?) once and enjoyed it.

      August 20, 2013

    • Ben O.

      I should've been more clear that it was Village + the expansion :) Cool, I'll bring them along!

      August 20, 2013

  • Bijmeister

    Games day at Phoenix games club.

    August 20, 2013

  • Bijmeister

    Would love to get in some Agricola practise per UK champs. Anybody up for a game?

    August 20, 2013

    • Bijmeister

      Whoopsie, cannot make Saturday. Changed RSVP status.

      August 20, 2013

  • Simon

    Hey all, I'm new to the group but looking forward to coming along on Saturday!

    I'm keen to try out some new games but can also bring one or two of my games if anyone else is interested - Ankh-Morpork or Lord of the Rings would be obvious choices.
