What we're about

A group for gamers living and working around the Greenwich/Blackheath, south-east London area (SE3/SE7/SE10/SE18).

We host a number of weekly events across each month: -

Weekday Evening Gaming @ The Woolwich Equitable - alternating Tuesday/Wednesday evenings (7:15pm 'til close).

Saturday Afternoon Gaming @ The Woolwich Equitable - final Saturday in the month (12pm - 8pm).
These Meetups gives us a chance to play meet & play games across an extended period, and perhaps bring out some of the more in-depth titles that may not be suited to a weekday evening. The venue is a located right next to Woolwich Arsenal Station, and again on a number of bus routes. Parking is available at the Train Station nearby, at £3.60 for the day (£1.50 after 6pm on weeknights).


So what games do we tend to play? As a group, we have a vast array of board & card games. These are kindly brought along by our group members to each of our organised events. People are free to pick and choose what they prefer to play on the night, whether it's something you want to teach others, or you can simply turn up and jump in on a game.

Our scope is quite varied in that we play, anything from the 'lighter' games/classics like 'Ticket to Ride', 'Carcassonne', 'Settlers of Catan', 'Dominion'; on to the 'heavier' end of the spectrum such as 'Battlestar Galactica', 'Dead of Winter', 'Viticulture', 'Orléans'... To fill the time, we also like to crack open a few lighter/party games such as 'Codenames', 'Love Letter', 'Sushi Go!' to name but a few. We also have a few members that like to back Kickstarter projects, so you may see a few games pop up every now and then.
For more info on our combined games library, see our updated Games List here.

As well as our usual gaming nights, we sometimes organise nights to take part in Quizzes, as well as Social Events/Nights out. Members are encouraged to come along, should they wish.

We are a friendly bunch, who recognise that with any growing hobby, there are plenty of people out there that want to take part, and are of differing levels of experience. Why not sign up and drop by to one, or as many evenings as you can attend - and feel free to bring a friend along with you.
