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!
