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.

    Oh wow, so I am going to be late. Probably 1 to 1:30. I'm bringing "Space Hulk: Death Angel" which I've gotten through setting up, but have never played; if anyone is interested in learning it, we can do...if not, I'll solo a game or two and see how it is.
    The Emperor's Will, Brothers.

    Hi there, I'm new here. One question, I'm French and don't know most of the games you talk about, do you think I can come? Won't it be too hard for me? Thks.

    • Will U.

      To be honest, it depends on your grasp of English. Many games feature either lots of diplomacy between players, or lots of reading cards to see what they do, that said there are also quite a few games which are easy to pick up. If you're able to hold a conversation then you should be fine coming along. Odds are, you won't be the only person who hasn't played a certain game before, and even if you are there are always people willing to go through the rules and teach you how to play the game before starting, so you don't need to worry about reading pages and pages of rule books.

    Now I am not going house hunting I'm coming Sat and Sunday and wondering what to bring on what day.
    I plan to bring Goa and Ghost Stories as I've read the rules recently and can teach.
    With some revising I could teach Elder Signs or maybe the Arkham Horror base game if anyone was interested.
    Arkham has some small box expansions I've never played, so if any Arkham vets want to teach Arkham let me know and I'll bring it.
    So does anyone want to play any and on what day.

    FYI - the District and Circle lines at St James's Park are shut all weekend: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livet...­

    The pub is just a short roll from Victoria or Westminster though...

      Dammit, again? Thanks a ton for posting the warning!

      February 14, 2013

    • Martin S

      No circle line at all and district practically useless being closed between south Kensington and aldgate. Thanks tfl !

  • Jeff C.

    Hey everyone... I'm still down with the flu, so won't be able to enjoy the madness that will be one of the bigger LoB sessions in recent memory... Shame really - I was really hoping to see it. Anyway, I hope you all have a great time.

  • Barry F.

    I will be taking a break from BSG as 3 of my regular players are not going to be playing this week I will have power grid as usual and would like to get a few hands of dominion in as well. aside from that I will see what else is available.

    February 15, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      There is no error code 1.3.28.

      However, I recommend HTTP Error Code 720 for this implausible case.

      February 16, 2013

    • Jeroen van den H.

      Gabe, I know there isn't - it was a knowing reference for Barry to spot. You may consider yourself outgeeked.

      February 17, 2013

  • Timo H.

    It's been so long!
    In the bag (for before or after "Spartacus"):
    "Robo Rally" for some quick fun and chaotic robot racing;
    "Citadels" for some city building and bluffing;
    "Last Night On Earth: Timber Peak" if you fancy some team-play Zombie gaming;
    and "Mob Ties" for those who enjoy some gangster themed negotiation, scheming, double-crossing, and backstabbing.
    Let me know if you would like to play any of these. ;-)

    February 17, 2013

  • Jason H.

    I'm gonna have Spartacus on me again, for before/after GoT. In case anyone's interested.

    February 17, 2013

    • Timo H.

      Hi Jason! When do you want to start a game? I still haven't played my copy, and our game was months ago...

      February 17, 2013

  • Nick J.

    I have snowdonia, small world, escape from the temple, and tzol'kin to bring. Anyone have a preference?

    February 16, 2013

    • John

      I'm planning to play something else right at 11AM but if you put Tzolk'in in the bag I'd be interested in getting in my 4th play of it later in the day.

      February 17, 2013

    • Nick J.

      I'll probably show up between 11 and 12

      February 17, 2013
