Sunday Board Games - Dice Saloon

Dice Saloon

Newcomers welcome!

Cost is £1.50 to cover table booking, no need to sign up on the meet-up, but you NEED to book a ticket from Dice Saloon for the right date here: https://www.dicesaloon.com/events?keywords=Sundays

There are no specific covid rules, but please don't come if you're ill!

We play a variety of games from co-op, strategy, social deduction, deck-building, dungeon crawlers, worker placements, exploration horror and longer Euro games. If you have something you specifically want to play it's best to ask in the Discord: https://discord.gg/b43zV4XNjQ in the #sun-irl-meetup channel.

Dice Saloon has a large library of games we can use, but you can bring your own games too.

Feel free to also join the Brighton Pub Board Gamers discord channel for more in person and online events!


Caxton Arms

Werewolf is a social/party game (a bit like a murder mystery), you're secretly either a villager or a wolf, and try to figure out what everyone else is. Who's on your team, and who's not? Deduction, bluffing, and lots of fun.

New players very welcome! Just RSVP to let us know you are coming. We always have more attendees than RSVPs on the list. If you've never played before, don't worry, we will get you started!

Enter the pub using the entrance door on the right and we will be there straight ahead of you. We begin arriving around 6pm to set up and brief newbies on the rules. First game usually starts around 6.30pm and a second game typically kicks off between 8 - 8.30pm. If you arrive after we've started you're able to sit and watch the drama unfold.

Click here to learn the rules and see the roles.
The best way to learn is definitely just to play! As part of each game, we frequently comment on what we think is happening.

Wednesday Night Pub Board Games

The Walrus

Boardgames and a pub, what's not to like? Come along and play some games with a friendly bunch of gamers. New faces and veterans welcome!

Please RSVP here so we can gauge numbers, and please buy drinks and food to support the pub as they let us use their space for free. Also, the pub can be very keen to check ID for age, so if you're lucky enough to look under 25 in dim light, please bring some!

We start from 6pm, and you're welcome to turn up at any time after that (though you may have to wait/spectate for a bit later on). When you arrive, say hello and we'll help you find a table to join.

If you'd like to play a game that needs more than one table, make sure you let us know here or on Discord, and we'll see what we can do - no guarantees! If you have any games you can bring, (and share/teach) that would be much appreciated, but there will be plenty if not.

Before you come, you might want to join our Discord; we use this for text chat to arrange beforehand what games to play and so on (we also play online board games there). It's also a great place for general chatter. Click here to join our Discord.

We look forward to seeing you!

Thursday Night Pub Boardgames

Alcampo Lounge

Come and play some games, with a friendly bunch of people. New faces and veteran players very welcome!

Now, first the public service announcements;

  • Please RSVP if you're planning on coming, so we have a good idea of numbers and can reserve extra tables if needed.
  • Secondly, PLEASE don't attend if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid (or similar infectious conditions, like a cold or flu). Playing boardgames does involve sitting at the same table together and often means touching the same game components, so we expect attendees to take suitable precautions.

And now on to the good bit!
We play all sorts of games, so come along and bring your favourite. We're always happy to teach and we love it if you're up for teaching/leading some games as well!

We usually chat/play short games until around 7PM, so if you're going to be later then that, give us a shout on here, or on our Discord server and we will try to keep a space in a board game free for you.

Our Discord server: https://discord.gg/d3CSw82MFa

Hope to see you there!
