Board Games on Sunday!

Every week, London-on-Board hits The Old Star pub in Westminster for a few pints, some good pub grub, and of course, lots and lots of board games.

We're immediately across the road from St. James' Park tube station, so it really can't get more convenient, and we're normally there for 9 solid hours of gaming goodness!!!

Newbies especially welcome and if you get there at 11:00 a.m. prompt, you're most likely to not have to wait around to hop into a game straight-away.

    Had an excellent game of Clash of Cultures. Sadly I entered into Warfrenzy mode and almost wiped out another player in the process. I don't think he was terribly impressed by my warmongering. My defence was that he left his city open for invasion!!!

      what time will you all be there? as there is a massive houseparty upstairs at my flat it sounds like i will not be able to fall asleep any time soon... so I may not come until later in the day

      February 24, 2013

    I must regrettably change my RSVP to no. After much assessment, I don't think my health is up for it.

    Game of Thrones thread mk2! As the other table is full I will bring my set on Sunday as well. I've not played much myself so this game would be good for newer players (1-3 games), and also anyone who learned the rules last Sunday and hasn't yet been put off trying it again! I will have no unofficial/house rules, and will be using the ToB cards to add an element of chance.

    Please sign up here if you are interested.

    • Barry M

      To confirm I will be there at around 11am, and hopefully we'll get started properly before 12.

    Agricola is my yearning on this particular occasion; ideally followed by another try at Dominant Species.

    February 20, 2013

    • Behrooz S.

      @Fernleigh, I may be mistaken, but only Robin, Laura and Richard are playing the other game of Agricola. You might be able to join their game.

      Not gonna make it unfortunately, will try DS another time.

    Hmm. 10:45. Last minute decision to go... hope I find a spot. :)

  • Jason

    Hi Tim, since AGOT is already full next week on the 17th can I book an early slot for the game on the 24th? -I'm happy to give this heretic 'no tides of battle' version you play at least one go....

      If there's another dropout, can I claim a spot for this?

      February 22, 2013

      I will be there by 11.30! But I WILL.

    I've recently bought the newly released 'Clash of Cultures' and haven't had a chance to really play it yet so looking for 3 others to try it out. In summary it's a civ game by Christian Marcussen, the same guy who brought you Merchants and Marauders. From all I've read from BGG and going through the rules I've gathered that it's quite well designed and thought through game. Like a good civ game should, it has things like exploring, building cities, researching on the tech tree, building armies and so on. As a time warning from reading about other peoples experiences the first game with 4 players including rule explanations etc. will probably run somewhere around 4 hours. Let me know if you're interested.

    February 18, 2013

    • Ilkka

      I'll be bringing the game, hopefully we'll find couple of others there

      Due to tfl crippling public transport, I'm having to travel via Azerbaijan to get to the pub. It's looking like I won't make it until 11:30

      February 24, 2013

  • Jon F.

    FYI St James's Park tube is closed again. No circle line. Big chunk of the district line also closed... Thanks TFL

    • Edward M.

      Thanks for pointing this out, the joys of the London Tube. Everyone remember your best alternate stations are Westminster, Victoria or Green Park and do keep in mind it would be totally inappropriate to blame Ronan personally for the inconvenience.

    Waitaminute, 85 spaces?! What happened? Are we taking over the entire pub, or is it still just the top floor?

    ..but it looks like you're full. Should I just turn up anyway :)

    February 22, 2013

    • Tom W.

      Thanks for the quick replies guys. I may just do Sat instead (or maybe as well if the waitlist free up), less crowded = better...

      1 · February 22, 2013

    • Will U.

      Last week, there were 85 people attending plus people on the waiting list on the Friday evening. By Sunday morning it had dropped down to 70 attending + 15 spaces, and I don't think all those 70 turned up either. So, I would say it is probably safe to assume that you will make it in if you join the waiting list, but equally don't turn up without knowing for sure that you aren't on the list.

    Hello all.

    We (myself and Summer) are new to this group and this is our first London-on-Board meeting. We have played Settlers/Rivals of Catan, Caracasonne, Agricola (only once, very confused!) and some other bits and pieces, but more than happy to learn new games.

    Looking forward to meeting you all on Sunday!

      Welcome to the group, hope you have a good time!

    I will instead go to the Saturday meetup this week, so please have my spot if you want it :)

    February 19, 2013

  • Gianna M.

    First time newbie! I would particularly like to play Arkham Horror or Mage Knight (for other games, I would need to be told the rules...)

    February 15, 2013

    • Marta

      Also, I think we should be writing on saturday thread because I am getting confused :)

      February 18, 2013

    • Gianna M.

      OK, I'll come to play AH on saturday and post it on the Saturday page :)

      February 18, 2013

  • Will U.

    After the Saturday 16th session, I have inherited the following items: A copy of Avalon and a purple scarf! If anyone wants to claim ownership of either of these, then please do! I'll be bringing them with me to both sessions this week. If either of them is yours, please drop me an email (Click my name and there's a link) just so I know who to look out for. If nobody claims Avalon then I'll simply keep bringing it to sessions anyway, but the scarf will end up going to anyone who would like a nice purple scarf. I can post a picture of the scarf if needed, but you probably know by now if you've lost a purple scarf or not!
