What we're about

A social group for anyone in the London area interested in board games, video games, films, comic books and general geek culture.

Our events are free, friendly and open to everyone regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, religious views or feelings about Jar Jar Binks being a good character ( Mildly nerdy Star Wars reference for you there). You don't have to bring anything and new nerds are very welcome if you don't know your Star Trek from your Star Wars fear not.

We arrange a big meetup every first Wednesday of the month and a smaller session every Saturday, both at the Star of Kings. So come along and say hello and be part of something awesome!

Chill out Saturday session

The Star of Kings

Our regular Saturday meetups in the Star of Kings, Kings Cross. If you're looking for a laid back saturday playing some board games in a pub with some awesome people, this is the meetup for you! Our community is filled with amazing and welcoming people, we always love seeing new people and making them feel welcome. We do have our own stash of board games at the pub, but if you have any of your own we'd love to see them! We'll usually be sitting round the back of the pub on the ground floor. The pub staff know us well so if you're not sure which table to go to just ask them. The meetup starts at 2pm and we usually carry on until 6 or often much later. These are chilled out sessions so feel free to stay for as little or long as you want. We hope to see you there!

Movie Meetup - Avengers: Endgame

Genesis Cinema

The wait is over, the epic conclusion of this arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally upon us! Will our plucky heroes win the day? Will the snappening be reversed? Will the internet's favourite "Antman-up-the-butt" theory come to pass? (If it doesn't get even a mention I want my money back). Join us on 28th April at the Genesis Cinema to find out! We'll be attending the 17:30 screening at the Genesis Cinema. We'll meet 15 minutes early in the lobby, then all go in together. Be sure to book your ticket here to avoid disappointment: https://genesiscinema.co.uk/GenesisCinema.dll/Booking?Booking=TSelectItems.waSelectItemsPrompt.TcsWebMenuItem_0.TcsWebTab_0.TcsPerformance_16745717.TcsSection_4496532 We'll head to the pub afterwards to discuss the film. Look forward to seeing you there!

OverBoard London Massive Wednesday Monthly

Location visible to members

Another one of our great meetups at the Star of Kings near Kings Cross. Please feel free to arrive early, as we often have people at the venue from 18:00. We bring out the games at 20.10, using the time before this to chat and get to know each other. We play some simple 'drop-in' games before 8.10pm like Cards Against Humanity, Dixit, and Superfight, as these games are much easier for new arrivals to join while the evening gets started. We would love for everyone to socialise throughout the evening, so the main aim of these early games is to get to know the other people around the table! Our monthly Meetup schedule is: 19.30: official start 20.00: introduction speech 20.10: we work out what we're playing and each game finds a space to play. Then the games begin!! 23.00: official end of Meetup Don't worry if you've never heard of our games before or if you're a bit nervous about coming along. We have team members on hand to welcome you into the group and explain the games as we go along. We're really looking forward to seeing you at one of our meetups soon! *** We are a friendly and diverse bunch of people welcoming of all ages 18+, races, genders and sexual orientation. New nerds welcome, if you don't know your 'Star Trek' from your 'Star Wars' don't worry. Come along have a great evening with some of the nicest people in London. We will be playing lots of card and board games, and we welcome you to bring games you think might be fun. If you have never played tabletop games before don't worry we are happy to get you started. If tabletop gaming isn't your thing there are always lots of fun conversations going on so say hello.
