Awesome All Day Good Friday Gaming at The Mad Hatter

We have this space for the whole day so feel free to come along and enjoy some games whenever you can make it.

If you are new to London on Board check out this 

guide for new players. If you have any questions on the night or are having trouble getting into a game, then look out for the night's host, listed to the right.

If you plan on attending please RSVP. We only have 40 chairs and it gets uncomfortable for everyone if more people than that turn up. Similarly, please change your RSVP to no if it turns out you can't make it. 

We won't have access to the games library so please bring games if you are able to. 

Have fun.

    Thanks for a great day. I felt so welcomed by the very friendly group. It was great to meet like minded people and play some great games. I am sorry I had to leave early, but I am really hoping I can make it again soon.

    I'll bring my new copy of Eldritch Horror - will probably need to refer to the rules a lot, but it's meant to be great :)

      There's always solo mode... Also remember, we did nada to achieve victory in the first 3-4 hours, so if players concentrate on the main goal from the beginning, that might halve the play time...

      True, I'm not sure we figured out the necessary strategy till later. We focused on closing the gates, but maybe that bought us some extra time...

    Fun times. Archipelago with Tom, Rachel and Jacob - which I won with my evil ways, winning a 6-player Pandemic, which was excellent and Tom unsurprisingly winning at Agricola.

    • Rachel

      Thanks for teaching us Archipelego although I have to say our map bore a much greater resemblance to a mainland! I had fun and could have kicked myself for not realising what a conniving little weasel you were! Particularly since I knew you were regularly lying about your hoard!! Well played and no hard feelings...gritted teeth!! :)

  • Luke M

    I plan to be down in around[masked] . Will bring Manhattan Project and Pandemic w/ On The Brink expansion if anyone's interested

    April 18, 2014

    • Luke M

      Think so, You were filch right? Happy to bring it along again. Always a good laugh, lots of hidden depth (that I clearly don't understand!)

      Good game, and a good bunch of players made it great. Didn't recognise you from your photo.

    another wonderfull evening, thank you

    April 19, 2014

  • JC M.

    Got to play Eldritch Horror and Cosmic Encounter, which have been on my wish list for so long. Thanks to anyone involved in making that happen.

    The only thing I regret is not getting to play all the other games with all the other peeples. I kept enviously eyeing up the other tables.

    Great day!

    I had a great first time at one of these meet ups. Thank you all.

    Thanks for all the games and good fun, I'm sorry to say I've played with or against so many people that I have forgotten who played what, still, it was great!

  • Sini

    Hey just saw this and looks fun, are you guys really going to be there until 11?

    April 18, 2014

    • Edem

      Apparently we did... :D

      April 18, 2014

  • Andy D.

    I'll have Resistance and Zombie Dice with me, if anyone needs a short filler game.

    April 18, 2014

  • Sarah

    Hey, is it ok to come along with a guest? It won't let me RSVP. Thank you!

    April 18, 2014

    • Csilla

      I've added you. Have fun!

      April 18, 2014

  • Haakon

    I'll be there around 2. Will bring Keyflower and/or Suburbia.

    April 18, 2014

  • Kallan G.

    I can comfortably contribute a fully expanded Pandemic and the Ascension base set for a bit of easygoing deck building. If we're running short of committed games I'm happy to tack on a second copy of Catan for general use.

    1 · April 16, 2014

    • Luke M

      Did you bring Pandemic? Would be game, especially to try In the Lab

      April 18, 2014

    • Max E.

      Wait for me! I'll be there in 20 :D

      April 18, 2014

  • Charlie W.

    I can't RSVP anymore :(
    But I'm a newbie (came a Sunday a few weeks ago for the first time). I'll hopefully be down around 2/230 if it's still good to come!

    April 18, 2014

    • Ronan

      No problem Charlie.

      April 18, 2014

  • Kevin M.

    I can bring Smash up, Qwarriors and King of Tokyo. But as we have a long day, does anyone fancy something meatier: Eclipse, Civilization etc.?

    April 16, 2014

    • JC M.

      I've played Qworriors on my iPad but nothing compares to holding loads of dice!!!

      April 18, 2014

    • Kallan G.

      Attitudes to custom dice are pretty much my litmus test for geekdom. It's safe yo say I passed mine with flying colours, so yes, I wouldn't say no to rolling my very own pile of polyhedra.

      April 18, 2014

  • Stuart (.

    Lots of players and hopefully lots of games today.

    Will be bringing Dixit Odyssey, Marrakech, Splendor, TransAmerica, Citadels, Little Prince: Make Me A Planet, Carcassonne and Carcassonne: South Seas plus fillers Dino Hunt Dice, Zombie Dice, Rory's Story Cubes, Coup and No Thanks!

    3 · April 18, 2014

    • Marco S

      Where's Waterdeep??

      April 18, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      I shall bring it along too but will keep it in my satchel until I arrange a game as it's all new with oodles of components. The rest of my stuff feel free to paw through.

      April 18, 2014

    • Jacob T.

      Should I click the link?Should I click the link?Should I click the- I clicked the link. Damn you.

    • Ronan

      AWESOME!!!!!

      1 · April 18, 2014

  • Max E.

    I fancy bringing my copy of Archipelago. Because everyone loves semi-cooperative worker placement games

    April 16, 2014

    • Tom C.

      With the extended hours could be a good opportunity for a medium/long game. What time were you thinking of starting?

      April 17, 2014

    • Jacob T.

      I'd be in on this too Max.

    Anyone got Terra Mystica?

    1 · April 16, 2014

    • Marco S

      Plan to start at 12:30. I'm guessing it will take 2-3 hours, depending on number of newbies :)

      1 · April 17, 2014

    • Matthew O.

      I'd like to join, if you're not full (and don't mind that I've never played it!). I'll read through the rules before I come.

      April 18, 2014

  • Edem

    Anyone up for a game of RoboRally?

    April 17, 2014

    • Cyrus T.

      I could be up for it after Terra Mystica & Eclipse :)

      April 18, 2014

  • Katharine

    Hi, I'm a newbie. I am hoping to be there around 12.30pm depending on the trains. Looking forward to meeting new people and playing games

    1 · April 17, 2014

    • Cyrus T.

      Everyone's very friendly and you'll have a GREAT!!! time :D

      April 18, 2014

  • Ronan

    We have the area from midday onwards so feel free to game all day.

    3 · April 15, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      Yay but boo I volunteered to host before the hours were changed. (Expect some dereliction of duty throughout the long day.)

      1 · April 16, 2014

    • Stuart (.

      Suppose I'll have to be there for twelve now. /reaches for alarm clock

      1 · April 18, 2014

  • JC M.

    Hi Guys, I'll show up around lunchtime. I'll be on my bike so can only bring some light small games (coup, mascarade, citadels)...or one big one (BSG, Cosmic Encounter)?

    Would love to play any of them, but I'm up for anything really, especially Eldritch Horror.

    See you tomorrow.

    Jude

    2 · April 17, 2014

    • JC M.

      Ok, I'll bring what I can carry, a selection of small boxes.

      1 · April 17, 2014

    • Edem

      I'm up for a game of Citadels between longer games, haven't played for ages.

      April 17, 2014

  • Marco S

    Since this is a bank holiday, is it possible to start earlier?

    1 · April 10, 2014

    • Jacob T.

      Mad Hatter is a hotel as well...

      April 17, 2014

    • Edem

      What is this 'sleep' thing I keep hearing about? :D

      April 17, 2014

  • Andy D.

    Hi, I'm a newbie. Looking forward to playing board games with you all.
    I think I may get there around 17:00 or later though.

    April 17, 2014

  • Matthew O.

    I'll bring Eminent Domain, Android: Infiltration and Smallworld. I'd like to try Kingsburg if anyone has it...

    1 · April 17, 2014

  • Max E.

    As well as Archipelago (below) I'll bring Catan for the pot.

    April 16, 2014

  • Jacob T.

    Now it is 11 hours people might want to start throwing in times they hope to get there as well as what games they are bringing. Remember no games library here.

    April 16, 2014

  • Stuart (.

    Heh, a night of LoBsterCon rejects!

    April 16, 2014

    • Tom

      Losers!

    • Stuart (.

      Nonsense, we've got eleven whole hours of gaming and unspoken bitterness.
