Board Games on Sunday

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 will open up for this meetup approximately two weeks before the event.

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.

    Hey guys, I think I've swapped Kings of Tokyo copies with someone inadvertently. The one I got has several expansions, like the new york one, and no insert. Somebody got my copy, that has the Power Up! expansion, and still has the insert.

    Whoever has my copy, can we meet next weekend session and trade back? Cheers!

      Oh that must be me! Sorry about the switch there. I'm at Eastbourne next weekend so it's going to wait until the following week.

    Had some great games of Maori, 8 Minute Empire, Cyclades, Trains & Hanabi. Was really packed today too, which is always good to see.

      Nice playing with you today. I learned new and nice games. Hope to see you next time!

    Two of my favourite games are published by the same people: Matagot. The games are Cyclades and Kemet and for me they do much for the strategy genre while both having an excellent theme to them. They are relatively short so I thought I'd offer up a dual session, with Cyclades + Hades expansion and then Kemet. Both support up to 5 players and last around 2 hours each maximum. So I thought we could play Cyclades, break for lunch then finish the day off with Kemet. Sign up below if you're interested.

    Anyone for trying out any of the following: Andean Abyss (centered around the Colombian insurgency in the 1990s), Cuba Libre (centered around Castro's cuban revolution in the 1950s) or A Distant Plain (centered around the Afghan insurgency in the 2000s)? They all use the same system, which is (relatively) easy to learn: each plays 4 players, with each side playing completely differently and with each having different winning conditions. Gameplay centers around both affecting the map, using events to your advantage (as represented by cards) and making deals with the other players. Newbies are welcome and it's a relatively easy to teach/learn game (although learning the rules in advance will be useful) but keep in mind that the games can be rather long. Cuba Libre is the shortest of the 3, with Andean Abyss/A Distant Plain taking longer depending on the scenario chosen. Let me know if anyone is interested.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
