    Super. Kicked off with Zombie Dice (Cyrus was king of the zombies), two games of Lords Of Waterdeep and then Carcassonne.

      Sounds good. Are you going this Monday or next Friday?

      March 22, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      Both I think.

    First time I played Pandemic and it was awesome. Super master extreme difficulty game mode thanks to Josh. I hope no one puts us in charge of saving the world... Lords of waterdeep, Coup and No Thanks were also fun - thank you to all the kind souls that have the patience to explain rules = )

    Does anyone want to bring Keyflower?

      Great game! You know you're on a winner when you have no idea what strategy to use for at least half of the game and end up getting thoroughly trounced, but still love every minute of it :)

    Well I'm not able to come. The last min venue change was a bit confusing for me. I'm off home.

    March 21, 2014

    • Gabe C.

      Yea, we hate it when pubs do that. Sorry about that.

      March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    Sorry all for the change of venue. Surprised you as much as me. Hope those who didn't make weren't - too - off put.

    March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    Still en route, venue change didn't cooperate with work.

    On my way. Will be a bit late!

    March 21, 2014

  • Bijmeister

    Changed again! Coming.

    March 21, 2014

  • Stuart (.

    Meh, went to the Ship instead. Am at the Shooting Star now but just me and some games.

    March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    Thanks Daniel, for the incoming games.

    I want to encourage anyone to bring games, I don't see as many regular game-toting work horses... err... regulars on this list as I would like to see.

    • Graham M.

      I'll bring castles of Burgundy and Notre Dame - should be there by 6.

      March 21, 2014

    • Marco S

      Would love to try Burgundy! just finished reading the rules

      March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    I've just sent an email to all informing them of the venue change. Please let anyone you speak to know!

    March 21, 2014

    • Daniel W

      Good thing I didn't bring the suitcase!

      March 21, 2014

    • Gabe C.

      Yes!

  • Ronan

    All, sorry but The Ship is double booked. Please head to The Shooting Star.

    March 21, 2014

  • Hannah S.

    Josh Humphries and I have Pandemic and the Walking Dead game, along with some smaller card based ones too :)

    March 18, 2014

    • Hannah S.

      the text has been sent, you might get to be a zombie yet!

      March 21, 2014

    • Hannah S.

      ps- i'm new, please don't eat my brains...

      March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    And we are full! Please de-RSVP if you can't make it!

    Hi am pretty new here and am hoping to done along tonight. I notice that due to change of venue games may need to be brought along. I have a bit of a collection and don't mind bringing something along but can't bring lots for obvious reasons.

    March 21, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      That's fine, bring what whatever you're happy with. I should point out that bringing something isn't mandatory (it's not like a bring-a-bottle-party but with games) and you can turn up with zilch but the comment about bringing games is just a heads up that we won't have the usual gaming library we have at the Red Herring.

      March 21, 2014

    • Daniel W

      Every week we ritualistically sacrifice a board game to the Fantasy Flight gods in the futile hope that they provide proper component storage for their games. It hasn't worked so far.

      1 · March 21, 2014

  • Stuart (.

    I'll bring Dixit Odyssey, Marrakech, Coup, Citadels, No Thanks!, Zombie Dice, Dino Dice, TransAmerica, Ark Of The Covenant and Hunters & Gatherers (the latter two are Carcassonne variants).

    March 21, 2014

  • Val

    Anybody interested in Lords of Waterdeep? I will bring and set it up for 5:40 today. Plays up to 5.

    March 21, 2014

    • Robert K.

      Sure, count me in please

      March 21, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      I love it so if there's space I'd be more than happy to play. Have played it three times with the Skullport expansion so not an expert but I won't need rules explained.

      March 21, 2014

  • Louis-Philippe C.

    Sorry for the last minutes change, but due to personal stuff, I won't be able to make it this evening. Hope to meet you next week!

    March 21, 2014

  • Gabe C.

    Any new folk, look for me wandering around acting host-like. I'm mildly loud, will try to get you into a new game or so. Never been to this venue before myself so I will be learning it too.

    March 21, 2014

  • Jonathan K

    I'm new to London on Board but was very pleased to find this event. Looking forward to tomorrow!

    March 20, 2014

  • Sanchit S.

    Newbie to LoB here - I'll see you guys on friday :)
    I will have to leave ~9, but this still allows plenty of stuff :D

    March 20, 2014

    • Daniel W

      Plenty of time to get some of my short games in!

    Hey I'm a newbie - hopefully coming with some other new types... Hope you can show us some games!

    1 · March 18, 2014

    • Gabe C.

      Definitely welcome. Look for me wandering around, I'll be hosting. We don't appear to be getting close to capacity for this Friday so other new faces are more then welcome.

      March 19, 2014

  • Louis-Philippe C.

    Hey there!

    I am new here (and to London to a certain extent), but I would really want to get to play a few games. However, I finish working at 5:30, so the earliest I could get to The Ship would be 6:00 (maybe a bit latter). Would that we alright? When do you usually finish? I could bring my French version of Catan, if required ;)

    March 17, 2014

    • Ronan

      6 is no problem at all. People arrive around then and later on. Games wind down around 10 but we have the room until the pub closes.

      March 17, 2014

    • Louis-Philippe C.

      Alright, I will try to make it then!

      March 18, 2014

  • Daniel W

    I'll bring a selection of shortish games: Steam Park, Android Infiltration, Packet Row, Shadow Hunters and Boss Monster.
