What we're about

London on Board is a friendly group of board game fans aged over 18. We meet almost every day of the week in pubs around central London. Check the calendar for details:

Meetups are free to attend (but require an RSVP), and you are welcome to bring your own games or just join in with those others have brought. If you've only played well-known games like Monopoly, Risk and Scrabble, you will find a lot of the games we play at the club unfamiliar. But we are a welcoming bunch and will always be happy to teach games to new players.

The games we play range from simple card games to epic strategy games - there's something for everyone! Check out the guide for newcomers if you want to know more, here:

You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram:

We have some friendly and helpful sponsors that help to us to provide the best board game events: (
