Old Star Saturdays

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 all, really enjoyed my first time, cheers Stefano for being a brilliant teacher, and as for letting me win by one point when I didn't know what I was doing...that's just niceness to the max :) See you again, Martin.

      Thank you all, I enjoyed playing both games. I've just RSVP'ed for next week and I'll bring TM again (I'm developing an addiction :) ).

    Gutting lose in Vegas Showdown (must try harder next time) where I lost a tiebreak to the richer victor, then three games of Carcassonne, two with the two tile variant, the excellent Trains and obligatory Coup.

      Going to be a little late, but that should give you time for teaching. Should be there by half eleven.

    Bringing Shadows over Camelot

  • Pouria

    Hi Everyone, I will be your host today, so if your new or just looking for a quick game, come say hi.

    March 15, 2014

  • Jeff C.

    Heads up: today only we need to be out by 18:00.

  • Mike

    Hey, wow, I got in! So... anyone interested in Twilight Imperium III? Happy to bring it in and teach.

    • Lawrence

      A full game can take 3-5 hours, more time if you have to guide new players or explain the rules. I've played the game to the end only twice. I dont know anyone whos played more than 3 times. Its an awesome game though with 3,4 or 5 players.

      March 15, 2014

    • Mike

      Yeah, it has a reputation for being a very long-playing but brilliantly epic game. But with a smaller number of players and certain options in play, it can go faster. So... is that interest?

      March 15, 2014

  • Daniel W

    I'd be interested in playing a game of Cosmic Encounter to completion if anyone is willing to bring it. I'll be bringing Mansions of Madness with a print on demand expansion as well.

    March 10, 2014

    • Daniel W

      I'll be there from 11, starting whenever is convenient.

      March 13, 2014

    • Simon

      Sounds good was planning on getting there early in any case...

      March 13, 2014

  • Mike

    I'm on the waitlist, but if I get off and can make it, would anyone be interested in a quick-playing, newbie-friendly game of Twilight Imperium III? (Obviously, "quick" is a relative term here.) It's a brilliant game and would love to introduce new players to it.

  • Amarjit

    Yey! Attending! I'm playing Colonial with David first as I've promised him I would.

    Change of plans- somebody else can have my spot!

    March 10, 2014

  • Will U.

    If anyone here left with my copy of Avalon last week, I would appreciate it if you could bring it back this week!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
