What we're about

Portsmouth On Board (POB) is a friendly local board gaming group based in Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK.

Join POB if you have an interest in designer board gaming and wish to meet up with a group of like-minded individuals to indulge your needs to play everything on your game shelf.

We welcome players from all levels of experience, whether you've never seen a modern board game in your life (we all had to start somewhere) or a long term member of Cult of the Old.

And when it comes to games it can be the old classics, light gateway games, heavy Euros, whatever you like. We're not fussy or elitist or judgemental. . . . but we will have opinions none the less! :P

WE HAVE NOW MOVED TO A WEEKLY ROTA FOR GAMING!!

The 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month will be at the LEGION from 7pm to 11pm. Fees for these sessions will revert back to £1 payable to the Legion venue.

The 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month will be held at Dice Portsmouth (https://www.facebook.com/diceportsmouth/?ref=gs&__tn__=%2CdK-R-R&eid=ARDePyWBVJbxDfsLnZEVZCqwfSL3Yy6qW1QRkDvIqrS3gHa-szVX_9PsqnnJGkfFBBoi21XLfnkBXe73&fref=gs&dti=618234548344738&hc_location=group) from 6pm to 10pm/closing time. I will personally run these two sessions. Fees will be £2 payable to DICE for the venue hire charge for membership.

If there is a 5th Wednesday of the month, that will be a day off.

We also have a Facebook page that is set up to show upcoming events as well as encourage active member participation in discussions and hosting alternative meetings. Please search for Portsmouth On Board on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/PortsmouthOnBoard/

Upcoming events (5+)

POB Regular Gaming Night - ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

Royal British Legion

£2.00

Meet at the Royal British Legion in Fratton, Portsmouth, from 7pm until 11pm. Note that games tend to get going by 7.15pm at the latest so if you're late you risk having to watch for the first game. On arrival all attendees must sign-in at the bar and pay £1 to the Legion for venue hire. There is no longer a fee to be paid for MEETUP as DICE have kindly offered to meet this cost on our behalf while we have DICE sessions there. Remember that if you park in the venue car park, you MUST validate your car registration at the bar indoors otherwise you WILL get fined. If you are new, simply grab a drink and introduce yourselves to other gamers who have arrived. My colleague Mark B from this group will be hosting these events as I will be personally hosting the DICE events. Also note that there is no game library at the Legion so if you have any games you want to play, please feel free to bring them! Members are more than welcome to bring guests along.

Meet at the new DICE Board Game Lounge, 149 Albert Road, Portsmouth, PO4 0JW, from 6pm until 10pm.

Entry is £2 for all members of POB payable to DICE. This represents the standard membership fee for Portsmouth On Board gamers to play at the venue. If you are new, simply grab a drink and a sandwhich and introduce yourselves to me and other gamers. Me and my fellow club members will get you into games quickly You are free to bring your own games however note that DICE has its own board game library full of a variety of games, so now you've more choice than ever before!!
