Next Meetup

Last Saturday of the month @ Newcastle Gamers
Join us for an evening of board games and card games from 4:30pm 'till late. We charge £2 per person (£1 for unwaged) to cover the venue hire costs, but your first visit is free! There's always a large selection of new (and not-so-new) games brought along by club regulars, and people will explain the rules for each game when you sit down to play, so don't worry if you're unfamiliar with a particular title. If you'd like to bring your own games along that's fine too -- pretty much anything goes. The venue has a small kitchen area with microwave and cutlery. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge. Takeaways can be ordered in, or bring your own food with you. There's a small branch of Sainsburys next door (open until 11pm) which is handy for drinks and snacks, and plenty of other shops within easy walking distance if you’ve forgotten something important.

What we're about

Formed in 2009, Newcastle Gamers is a group of people who gather twice a month to play board and card games.

We meet at 4:30pm on the second and last Saturday of each month in Christ Church Hall, near Manors Metro station. We charge £2 a session to cover the venue hire (£1 for unwaged), but your first session is free.

The meetings are friendly and informal, with people picking a game that they want to play, and then seeing if others are also interested in playing it.

You can come for the entire meeting, or just drop by for a couple of hours. New games will be starting throughout the session, so no matter when you arrive you should be able to find something to play without too much waiting around. Things tend to slow down a bit after 10pm, but a few die-hard members can often be found gaming into the early hours.

Don't worry if you don't know the rules for a particular game – there'll usually be somebody happy to explain the basics of each game when you sit down to play.

You don’t need to bring anything with you, the club has a small collection of games, and other members will bring some of their own games with them. There's always a large selection of games to choose from, ranging from brand new releases to tried and tested classics.
