What we're about

Welcome to the Hamburg Board Gaming Club!

We’re an international group of slightly nerdy, likeable, English-speaking people who are into all sorts of games and get together regularly to play and have fun. We’re open to all genres and styles, be it strategy games, card games, role playing (pen & paper or otherwise), family games, party games and many more.

We’re meeting regularly every Sunday at 4 pm in a larger group playing all sorts of games. This is your best chance to get to know us (and for us to get to know you). Aside from that there are many other, smaller meetups, some of which are public, some are only open to active members and some are by invitation only. We are also an open forum, where every active member can themselves host a meetup. So if you absolutely want something to happen on a specific day of the week or if you want to host a game night for a specific game, talk to the organisers to help you set up a meetup for that. Or talk to the people you would like to play with directly at one of our other meetups.

The main language at all of our meetups is English. So if you don’t speak German, this is the right group for you. About half of our members are native speakers of German or speak German well enough to play board games in German, so it might happen that there’s a table where everyone speaks German and they agree to speak German while playing. However, we cannot guarantee this happens.

Du sprichst kein Englisch? Kein Problem. Wir sind eine bunt gemischte Truppe mit vielen verschiedenen Muttersprachen, daher ist bei uns Englisch die Hauptkommunikationssprache. Es gibt aber noch zahlreiche weitere Spielekreise und -gruppen in Hamburg und Umgebung, bei denen auf jeden Fall Deutsch gesprochen wird. Tatsächlich sind es so viele, dass man an fast jedem Wochentag in fast jeder Himmelsrichtung etwas spielen kann. Zur weiteren Information empfehlen wir euch die Facebookseite der Spielkultur Hamburg e.V. ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/413054888728461/ ) und das Spiele-Informationsportal auf Groops ( http://www.groops.de/spiele-informations-portal/events ). Hier findet ihr auch gut gepflegte Veranstaltungslisten.

Meet and Play Sunday

Location visible to members

WE'RE CANCELLING THIS MEETUP FOR THE TIME BEING AS A SAFETY MEASURE REGARDING COVID19. DETAILS BELOW. PLEASE CHECK BACK REGULARLY TO SEE HOW THINGS DEVELOP. WE WILL MEEP UP AGAIN AS SOON AS THE SITUATION IS UNDER CONTROL. I'm sure you all have heard the news about #Covid19 and the current #CoronaVirus by now. Larger events are already being cancelled and people are advised to limit social interactions to a minimum. Due to its nature, our meetup has a high risk potential, as we're all touching the same cards and meeples during a game and in addition to that there's everybody's food on the table. That is why we're cancelling this meetup. Regardless, you are welcome to use this group in order to get in touch with fellow board gamers and organise a private event in someone's home and you are also welcome to show up on Sunday and see who else is there to maybe play a game. However, there will not be an official meetup for the time being. Check back regularly as we want to be "back to normal" as soon as possible! Karsten for THBGC ********** ********** ********** ********** ********** You know the drill - let’s meet and play some games! You don’t know the drill? Well, here it is: We’re meeting every Sunday at 4 pm at the Feuervogel restaurant at Holstenstraße 119. Games usually start shortly after 4 pm, after everyone has said hello and ordered coffee and cake. So if you’re a little late, announce it here so we’ll wait for you. If you’re really late, don’t worry. We’re usually playing until 9 or 10 pm and there are new games starting continually. Just come by anytime and wait a few minutes for the next game to start. The games we play depend on what we have available that Sunday and on how many people we are. If you own any board games or card games you like and would like to share with others, then bring them. If not, that's also fine, because there will be plenty of games that other people bring. We normally don't play extremely complex games that take more than two hours. So after one or two hours when the groups have finished, we often form new groups to try different games. If you are in the mood for a specific game you don’t own yourself, post here to ask someone to bring it. If you want to play a more complex game that will take a few hours and where it’s maybe wise to have a look at the rules before coming to the meetup, announce it here so players can already commit to this game and maybe start having a glance at the rule book, so at the meetup you can dive right in. We are an English language meetup and the main language at all of our meetups is English. So if you only speak English, you’re absolutely in the right group. About half of our members are native speakers of German or speak German well enough to play board games in German, so it might happen that there’s a table where everyone speaks German and they agree to speak German while playing. However, we cannot guarantee this happens. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Otherwise, we’re looking forward to seeing you at the next meetup and to playing a game with you.
