Board Games on Saturday

  • 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.

    Thanks everyone for coming, it was a great day of games. That said when we have 45 people signed up and a waitlist it's disappointing when we never get above 35 people actually at the pub.

    If you RSVP yes and don't show up when we have a waitlist you are actively blocking someone who wants to play games from being able to do so, we understand that emergencies do happen but please, treat your RSVP as a commitment to attend and if you can't make it try to change your RSVP with plenty of notice so someone else can take your place.

    Had played 3 really fun games of Settlers of Catan with tne newly released Catan board, Cyclades where I actually became a contender for winning at one point and Downfall of Pompeii, which is a terrifically fun game that only lasts for 30 mins. Excellent times all round.

    I, like an absolute idiot, left my copy of Smash Up and Love Letter on the bar. Only just realised as I got home! Wondering if anyone picked them up or they were left overnight because I'll have to grab them tomorrow.

      They were left on the bar, so will be there tomorrow morning for you.

      Can I join in too if you guys going to start 2ish? Maybe it's a bit late so don't feel you have to wait that long

    I have just acquired a reprint of the Uwe Rosler classic Le Havre (he's the Agricola guy). It's a top 10 game on BGG, seems to be a resource management/worker placement type thing. I need 2-3 people to help muddle through a first game with me or, even better, explain the rules (they do look easier than 'gric).

    Alternatively, if we can get 6 for Eclipse with expansion that would also be great.

      I should be there by quarter past if not earlier

      September 14, 2013

    • Fabio L.

      I'm on my way. I already played a few times, you can go ahead and explain the rules if I run late

    Is anyone interested in a themed Euro Double Bill of Pillars of the Earth followed by World Without End. 2 1/2 hours of worker placement and resource management to compete in building a cathedral followed by an hour and a half of action selection and penalty avoidance trying to keep the cathedral town running smoothly. Awesome!

    September 12, 2013

    • Barry J M.

      I'll be coming at 11am as usual and might be keen to try Pillars again if that's on the table (literally).

    • Ronan

      I'll be late if there at all. Keeping London Moving. Make other arrangements folks and see you if I can.

    • Shehzad A.

      Yeah, I noted it's absence as well.

    This may across as a bit of an odd request, but I've just taken delivery of a special game board for Settlers of Catan. This locks the board pieces into place, preventing them from moving during play. I have yet to use them and would love for some to try the game out with the board. I can have up to 6 players as I have the 5-6 player expansion and the board supports the larger space required. As a bonus we can also play Pompeii which is a fun if a little morbid game I picked up from PAX Prime. It even has a little volcano in it!

    • Chris O.

      OK that's 4. Anyone else?

      September 11, 2013

    • Dave

      I'm up for that too Chris - always wanted to play Catan

      September 13, 2013

  • Simon W.

    I will be bringing galaxy trucker and twilight struggle potentially if anyone is keen for either game?

    September 12, 2013

    • Mike M.

      Would love to try either of these if that's alright?

      September 12, 2013

    • Simon W.

      Both TS and Galaxy Trucker Anniversary sounds awesome :) Will, I'll be happy to play TS later on in the day after some Galaxy Trucker

      September 13, 2013

  • Riccardo F.

    Tagore up for some Combat Commander/Fading Glory/Red Winter?
