What we're about

Reading Board Gamers (this meetup group) is an umbrella group run for the benefit of the Reading board gaming community as a whole, bringing together the events organised by the board gaming groups in the area in one place.

I formed The Reading Boardgames Social over 6 years ago now, and all of the group's events will be listed here - Just watch out for any events labelled "RBGS presents..." - as well as on our dedicated Facebook group ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/Boardgamessocial/ ).

If you have a group and wish to promote your events here, or if you are interested in becoming involved in the RBGS as an organiser, event host or in any other capacity then drop me a line.

The RBGS is a relaxed and social group. No previous experience is necessary and you don't need to own any board games as there are always plenty brought along. Just come along to one of the events and join in with the fun.

If you have any questions about any of the events, please post in the event or message the named host.

Any questions about the overall group are probably best directed at me.

We have also set up a board game trading group for any gamers in the Reading area https://www.facebook.com/groups/ReadingBoardGames.Buyandsell/
All are welcome, so please join and spread the word.

Hope to meet you over a boardgame soon...
Happy gaming : )

RBGS presents Saturday Card & Board Games

Great Expectations

Saturday Gaming is back!

Reading Board Games Society presents card & board games once again. We are working on a schedule for our regular sessions but are kicking things off with sessions on these dates:
-Sat 24th July
-Sat 7th August
-Sat 21st August
Starting at 1pm until people decide to leave, the area is reserved until 6pm.

As always, new people are always welcome, no previous board game experience is required and it's totally free to join the fun.

The Organisers and other members will bring games however if you have a specific game you would like to play, you can bring it with you. You could also post in the group as many of our members own a wide range games which could be brought along so feel free to ask in the group discussion.

Organisers will be around from 12.30 to say hi to anyone who wants to come to chat and is an opportunity for quieter intros before games get going. We always aim to make sure everyone has a game but please feel free to mingle and get involved.

The games brought are owned by our members personally, so please do be careful with drinks and food around games. Remember to follow our T&C's for any of our events to ensure everyone has the best experience.

This week we have reserved the library area, on the left when you go in before the bar.

We are working in line with government and venue COVID guidelines, please feel free to bring your own PPE (eg mask for table/hand sanitiser).

We know not everyone is going to be comfortable attending our events due to COVID but know that we are here when you are ready.

We look forward to seeing you,
Reading Board Games Society :-)

Calling all roleplayers.
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

I had a previous thread for this - but with the membership purge Ive just undertaken and new people joining the group since the change in name (and group tags) I thought Id start a new thread to help bring together roleplayers looking to find/run games. Join this event if you are interested in roleplaying. Post to the thread if you are interested in running a game. Give some details of what you are wanting to run, where, how many players you are looking for etc.

Im happy to set up/schedule an event, with a date/venue etc once the organising of a game gets to that point.
