What we're about

Do you know your Settlers of Catan from your Carcassonne? Do you have a copy of Ticket to Ride laying about and no-one to play it with? Or would you just like to play some board games that you've never played before? Well assuming that you're in or around Canterbury, Herne Bay and Whitstable, this meetup needs you! We meet and play games up to seven times a month (each week and every other weekend).

We are also home to the annual East Kent board game convention - 'Canterbury Conquest (http://www.meetup.com/WhitsTableTop/pages/Canterbury_Conquest/)'.
