What we're about

Meet local board game enthusiasts and have lots of fun! This is the group for anyone in Weston-super-Mare and environs interested in contemporary board games, from people completely new to the world of modern board games to certifiable board game geeks. I (the organiser) am a recent transplant to the UK who misses her old boardgamer friends in the US, and would like to find people in this area who enjoy a friendly game over a pint (or two).

What kinds of games? Euro-style tabletop games like the following which we've played recently: 7 Wonders, Lords of Vegas, Steamworks, Pandemic, Puerto Rico, Caylus, Ticket to Ride, Lords of Waterdeep, Small World, Power Grid, Russian Railroads and many others. We're also always interested in seeing, testing and playing your new games hot off the shelf. And if you have a copy of Cones of Dunshire do bring it along with you. :-)

We meet every other week on Tuesdays and Fridays at The Summerhouse in Worle. Everyone is welcome, regardless of skill or experience, and you'll find the group is fun and sociable as well as a great opportunity to play games.

Finally - we REALLY appreciate your RSVPs to the Meetups - lots of games are designed for specific numbers of players, and they help us to plan how many tables and which games we should all bring along! Watch the message threads for each Meetup too for tips on which games it might be worth investigating online before the night!

Sunday Night Boardgaming at The Summerhouse

Summerhouse Pub

New members are always welcomed, and we try to have a range of games available for those playing their first modern style boardgame as well as those for seasoned gamers. We are located upstairs in the restaurant area. This is an open boardgame night for players of all interest levels: come along and bring a favourite game if you want to and we'll decide what we play based on majority rule (if you do bring a game, though, be prepared to teach it to others if it gets selected). Please also consider letting us know if you want to play something specific in your RSVP too! We will try to bring games which suit the number of players and potential tables we can run, so sending an RSVP in advance is really appreciated! That said, most people who turn up roughly on time will almost certainly get to play. We'll usually have a few short games which can be played by larger groups, or between other games, on hand too. The Summerhouse is a restaurant as well as a pub, so food is usually available if you would like a snack or a meal with your pint. Let's all come prepared to welcome new and seasoned gamers alike, and most importantly, have fun! This Meetup will repeat on a fortnightly basis for the time being.
