What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/3/f/f/d/600_448816381.jpeg

We are a board gaming group in Bedford. We offer a chance to meet new people who share an enjoyment of board games. We're about having a bit of fun and spending an enjoyable and sociable time doing what we like best; which is ...obviously... gaming.

Come and enjoy your first meet-up with us for free. After that, we charge £2 on Wednesday nights and £1 on Friday night sessions. The money goes to covering our meetup fees, room hire and any spare goes towards games that can be won or used by members of the group. Tea and coffee is provided on Wednesdays and you can / should buy drinks at the bar on our Friday meets.

If you're not a die-hard gamer, don't worry! We have plenty of games to start you off gently.... and are currently running some extra introductory sessions to lead you in gently. Our regular members tend to bring a good selection of games with them...but do try and sign up if you are coming so that we can cater for the right amount of people.

We never play Monopoly, Scrabble, Cluedo or Backgammon ;-) Chances are however that if you like those, you'll be blown away by the modern games that we adore. We don't have favourite games that get played every single week as we enjoy playing a wide variety of stuff...from quick 5 minute filler games to complex all-evening strategy games and everything in between. Worker placement, area control, deck building, hand management, take-that, tile placement, competitive or co-operative...we really do cater for most board game tastes. Don't worry if you don't know the rules. They will be run through at the start of the game.

Any questions or worries? Just send us a message...we will happily answer any queries. We are a friendly bunch so don't be scared ... come and have some gaming fun!

Let's Game Online on a Friday

Needs a location

Whilst we can't run physical meetups at the moment, we can get together online to chat whilst we play digital versions of our games or games that we can manage to work playing remotely. To join us, you'll need to download the discord app or access it online. If you use this link then it should help you find us! https://discord.gg/uhsMys2 This is a general text chat and voice chat available and we can separate the chat out on a per game basis.

The games we play are most likely to be on:
www.yucata.de/en
www.boiteajeux.net

so registering on those sites (which is free) would be helpful. There may be others we find too.

If anyone wants to propose particular games then please comment below with how many spaces available, or reply to a comment if you want to join a specific game. Otherwise, we will agree games on the night depending upon what we fancy.

The Place for Board Games

Needs a location

£3.50

We're at The place Theatre on Wednesdays for the foreseeable future, in one of their upstairs rooms.

Bring the games you've been desperate to play all year and then play something else new and shiny; because who can resist new and shiny?

We will have tea and coffee making facilities and the bar should be available for drinks. Please note that as the premises are licensed, you cannot bring any alcohol with you but the bar does have reasonable prices!

Please do offer games and sign up for games in the comments section for the relevant day. This does help us get set up and started more quickly without everyone crowding around a game pile. It also gives people the chance to take a look at the rules ahead of time if its a more complex game.

Any questions, please ask. I'll update the description if I've missed anything.
