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/
