Welcome to Oxford On Board! Here you can find some information about who we are and what we are all about.
Who are we?
We're a mixed bag of game players. Some of us have been playing board games for aaaaaages, some of us have only just begun to discover the wealth of board games that is out there. Some of us prefer Euros, others are more interested in the American style, dripping with theme board games. Some of us like abstracts. Some of us just like everything. All of us like to play games and just having a good time.
What do we do?
We play board games (duh). Well, mostly board games. Sometimes they're card games. Or board games with cards. Or card games that use boards. Whatever the case may be, what we play depends on what people bring with them and what people like to play. For an overview, have a look at the Games we play page.
When do we do it?
We're meeting on Monday evenings weekly, and the occassional Saturday.
Where do we do it?
On Monday evenings, in the Kings Arms. We've also joined forces with the monthly Gamescafé, so once a month there is an option to play games on a Sunday, the whole day long. Regular attendees of Oxford On Board get to attend for free. In addition to these scheduled meetups, some members will organise meetups in the privacy of their own homes from time to time.
Why do we do it?
Because playing board games is fun, fun, fun! It's also a very nice way to meet some very interesting people.
How do we do it?
Besides the common sense of proper behaviour, we have a few guidelines to keep everything running smoothly. Please take a moment to read them if you are considering joining this group.
