What we're about

When you were young, did you enjoy playing board games but somehow stopped? Maybe you got bored of Monopoly, Risk or Scrabble, or somehow life got in the way and your favourite games are now gathering dust in the attic? The hobby of board gaming is undergoing a huge renaissance... modern games like Settlers of Catan, Pandemic, Carcassonne and others are WAY more fun than what you played as a kid, and they are a great way to make new friends. This meetup group - an offshoot of the very popular "London on Board" meetup group - is offering you the chance to meet other people who are interested in learning to play some fun new games, while meeting other interesting people in a friendly environment. Don't worry if you don't recognise the names of the board games we play, and don't worry - we're not playing with little toy soldiers or figurines like you've seen in some high street shops - give us a try, and you might find you really enjoy it!

The current situation doesn't mean that we can't play games - it's more important than ever to keep socially active. I know a number of us have Tabletop Simulator, Boardgame Arena, Tabletopia, various Online multiplayer games like Battlelore, Catan, Ticket to Ride or even Jackbox, so there are lots of ways to play if we can link up and arrange things. Glenn has set up a Discord server called "Surbiton Games Club". It supports messaging, voice chat and video and works on anything. If you're up for some remote gaming, please join using the URL below and let's share some ideas on how to keep gaming! https://discord.gg/gM5FJpx

Board Games on Sunday

Location visible to members

Every fortnight, join a friendly group at The Duke for some modern board games! Don't worry if you've never played before. Someone teaches every game that is played, and we always have games suitable for beginners. It's best to arrive at the beginning so you don't end up sitting around waiting for a game to finish before you can jump in the next one! Look for us at the back of the pub. Hope to see you there!
