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 : )

Ascot game night at Station Inn/Jagz

The Station Inn

The Station Inn / Jagz are supporting this new group by letting us use some tables in the pub for board games. We have a few tables reserved, and they are happy for us to use the space. The venue is really convenient and easy to get to, located right next to the Ascot train station and has parking. What to bring? Come along with a board game or two (or none at all), and be ready for a night of gaming fun, and a chance to meet some new people. What to expect? So far we have enjoyed games such as Lords of Waterdeep, Scythe, Exploding Kittens, the members have a great range of games and with some notice can cater for a variety of tastes. We also hope to run RPG and war game events in the future. As the pub is being great about our use of the venue please do buy a drink or two during the night. The organizers will be there from 7.00pm so come along have a chat, and we will be sure to fix you up with a game. Do let us know if you are planning to attend, and what time you might arrive so we can make sure there is a game you would enjoy that you can join. Looking forward to seeing lots of you there.

Saturday Virtual Board Games Event

Online event

This virtual board game event will be coordinated through the RBGS discord. The link for which can be found when you RSVP. The plan is to play the games over Tabletop Simulator, but if there is demand, then other platforms can be considered. Tabletop Simulator requires purchase and to be run from a PC/Laptop, but once you own a copy there are 1000s of free board games available through the Steam workshop (and only the host is required to have downloaded the games). As mentioned other platforms can be considered, as there are plenty of free to play platforms out there. Due to the nature of virtual events it is best to try to get as many of the details as possible figured out ahead of time, so please RSVP and get involved in the discord chat, so we can organize games and make sure everyone gets a game. We have multiple people planning to host games, so the games can cater for everyone, from straight-forward, easy to learn and play games, to something heavier. If discord/tabletop simulator is a daunting new world, don't worry, as there are plenty of us on the discord who will happily show you the ropes and some great resources on the discord, including an excellent tabletop simulator tutorial created by Bryn. All welcome, if you have any questions just let me know.
