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.

We are now back to meeting in person every Saturday afternoon in the Fountain & Ink near Waterloo. In addition, we have a discord server where we have online gaming sessions on Wednesday evenings:

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.

Also if you want to help us keep the lights on, consider supporting us on patreon, at https://www.patreon.com/OverBoardLondon

OverBoard London Tuesday Monthly

Needs a location

If you're looking for a fun way to meet new people or catch up with old friends while playing some board games in a pub, this is the meetup for you! We can't wait to meet you in person at The Fountain & Ink in Southwark.

Please feel free to arrive early, as we often have people at the venue from 17:30. We bring out the games around 19:00, using the time before this to chat and get to know each other. We then play some simple 'drop-in' games like Codenames and Taboo, as these games are much easier for new arrivals to join while the evening gets started, before playing lots of fun card and board games.

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. If tabletop gaming isn't your thing there are always lots of fun conversations going on too so come by and say hello.

A few things to note:

  • Feel free to bring board games you think are fun
  • buy lots of food and drink from the pub
  • Please RSVP, to let us and other people know you're coming.
  • We ask you take sensible covid precautions: ideally be boosted vaccinated, have a negative lateral flow test within 24 hours of the session, use hand sanitiser liberally and stay home if you feel at all unwell.

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. So come along and have a great evening with some of the nicest people in London!

Midweek online fun!
