What we're about

Welcome to London on Board!!!

We're all about modern tabletop games, fun, social and sociable gaming. We welcome all to our events whether you're a beginner (or newbie if you will) or an old hand.

Our events are free to attend (but require an RSVP here on Meetup)*, and you are welcome to bring your own games or just join in with those others have brought. If you've only played older 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.

Please do check out our website for news chat, forums, games trades and much much more:

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:

Finally, our rules can be found here:

https://www.londononboard.com/rules-regulations

During this time we ask members who are gaming at venues outside our events not to represent themselves as London on Board, this confuses our discussions with venues and might even jeopardise them.

Given the uniquely social nature of our events, there will be a safety-first approach. Which is not to say that hosts will be "policing" you all, but they will be there to field your questions and work with the venue.

We ask that you stick closely to our rules and are guided by the advice on each event as it is added to LondonOnBoard.com (http://londononboard.com/events) and Meetup.com/LondonOnBoard (https://www.meetup.com/londononboard). Generally, this will be as follows:

We would ask that you are either double-vaccinated or have had a negative Lateral Flow Test in the last 24 hours. Again, no one is enforcing this but we ask you to think of others.
Please stick to any rules which the venue has, especially in relation to COVID-19 safety.
If you need clarification please ask the Host or the Venue staff.
If you have any concerns, complaints or argument with their rules please raise them with the Host not with the Venue staff.
The Host will pass them to the Organisers and we will speak to the Venue if necessary.

Please follow any instructions given by the Venue staff. Both for the safety and comfort of others, and because we really need our Venues.

We ask that you stick very closely to our LoB Rules (https://www.londononboard.com/rules-regulations) at this time, and especially the following (paraphrased):
RVSP - Do not turn up to an Event if you do not have a spot reserved on the corresponding Meetup Event. Even if someone at the Event contacts you to say it's sparsely attended or there's plenty of room.
Venues - Respect the rules of the venue (see above)
General Conduct - This extends for now to if you have a cough, a cold, or some other symptom which might make other players anxious or uncomfortable, please consider not attending. It's probably best for you to stay and home and get better anyway.
Food & Drink - No outside food and drink without the explicit consent of the Host.

If you are not comfortable with these additional rules, the rules of the Venue or instructions from Venue staff, we would ask you to you either not attend in the first place or leave the event.

If you have questions, comments or concerns please contact the Organisers (https://www.londononboard.com/contact-8).

Trader Vic's

Welcome to London on Board!

We are a friendly group of boardgame enthusiasts who meet in Central London. Newbies are very welcome but please read our rules first: https://www.londononboard.com/rules-regulations

Just a heads up, we don't allow Chess, Scrabble, Monopoly, Roleplaying games, Magic the Gathering etc at LoB as there are other venues for that and we want to make sure there's enough space for board games.

Please buy some drinks and maybe also food from the venue, we don't pay for the use of their space and it keeps us going!
Please don't consume food or drink from outside the venue at a LoB event (see our rules for details).

The venue will be laying on a more affordable food menu for us and keg beer, in addition to their normal food and drink offering. Many thanks to them for stepping in to help us. Lighting in the venue is relatively low so please be aware of this for your visit.
