Welcome to LoB. Every LoB event is suitable for newbies (by which we mean new to games, rather than new to this group, though of course you might be both) but each month we host special newbie events with a focus on more accessible games. This is one of those.
Regular members: please bring and be prepared to teach accessible games.
However, if you’d like to teach a less accessible game to newbies, then post that as a ‘newbie teaching game’ on the event page and – if genuine newbies sign up for it – go ahead. But please don’t go ahead with all experienced members – you can teach the game to them at any other event!
If you have questions or need help, either ask the Host (if there is one) or find one of our Helpers (check list of attendees for anyone marked 'Event organizer') and just ask! Helpers are always happy to answer your questions or clarify any how the event works. Even if there is no host or helper you should find us a helpful and friendly bunch so don't be afraid to ask questions.
If you’re new, please check out our guide for new players (http://www.meetup.com/LondonOnBoard/pages/Guide_for_newcomers/).
Please RSVP if you are planning to attend, and make sure it is up to date if your plans change. Be considerate of other members – we often have large waiting lists. Similarly, please don't turn up if your RSVP is not confirmed, as space is limited.
Admittance is free – but please buy drinks and/or food at the venue. Our use of the room is dependent on the pub making some money on the night.
Please treat games with care: when you’ve finished a game, check the components are all present, pack them in the box as you found them and put the game back where you found it. Also, if you move tables please return them to their original arrangement once you are finished.
Check out our lovely forums ( https://www.meetup.com/LondonOnBoard/messages/boards/ ), where you can discuss all things LoB (including tournaments, lost & found, trading and special events).
