What we're about

We all know that one competitive friend who loves to rub it in your face when they win at Scrabble (again)

Why not put them to the real test at one of our games sessions in Romford - we have a wide variety of games for all abilities at The Hope Board Games Cafe in Romford Market Place. Our community games library is free to use, and all games are sanitised and quarantined after play to ensure safety.

Whilst we are in Tier 4, we are running games online as we are unable to meet in person. Take a look at our events, and those of our other group https://www.meetup.com/RomfordDnD/ to find out what we have on offer - various games run most days of the week.

We also run miniature painting workshops, terrain building workshops, 3D printing and design workshops and storytelling workshops - all free of charge.

And if you have a game you love, then please feel free to ask us to play it with you.

There's no cost to play, our members are friendly and welcoming, and it's fun, so come along and join in!

If you have any questions please drop us a message and we'll get back to you ASAP. For anyone nervous about joining the group, we run an outreach service where one of our volunteers will get in touch and support you, offering a friendly face when you do feel ready to join in with the main activities.

We have a friendly and welcoming WhatsApp group you can join if you'd like to 'meet' to some of the other players in advance, and chat about the games you'd like to play - just click here and say hello: https://chat.whatsapp.com/FbqEruQoRxJJ9Nr2880CaZ - you'll be greeted warmly :)

Organised Gaming with DicingWithLife

The Mercury Shopping Centre

Come along to play games with DicingWithLife on the first floor of the Mercury Mall, every Tuesday night from 7-10pm. It's fun, friendly and free to join in. We have a range of games available, from 10 minute 2 player games to in depth all evening strategy stuff (Pandemic, Risk, Betrayal at House on the Hill... you know the type). Whether you're new to board games or a seasoned player, on your own or with friends, all are welcome for a night of socially-distanced, but still very social, gaming.

We will be running organised games, including Moonstone, Warhammer, Malifaux, D&D and lots of others. There is also a large games library if you'd like to choose something to play yourself - you can see the list of the games we currently have on BoardGameGeek. Or feel free to bring your own!

All ages and abilities welcome. If you are coming alone, we will help you find others to play with.

If you have any questions, send us a message and we'll get back to you with some answers.
