What we're about

Hi there!

We're a small and friendly group who meet up regularly to play board, card and tile games in nice cafés, pubs or restaurants around East London.

Although we play all sorts, we prefer modern games to traditional ones, strategy games to party ones, and we favour competitive games over cooperative ones.

Typically, our fortnightly events cater for 12 people each, and we try to organize at least 2 events per week, in 2 different locations, to promote both comradeship and variety.

Please be considerate enough to RSVP to events, don't turn up without RSVPing first, and change your RSVP if you cannot attend any more. Thanks!

We hope you'll enjoy coming to our meetups! See you soon :)

Gaming on a Sunday Afternoon, E17

Ye Olde Rose & Crown

A warm welcome to an exciting afternoon of tabletop gaming! We're a friendly bunch who meet up regularly to play modern games in nice venues around East London. Please read our About page ( https://www.meetup.com/east-london-tabletop-gaming/about/ ) before attending; remember to RSVP if you'd like to come to this event, and to un-RSVP should your plans change. As we're a small group, it makes sense to try and organize games beforehand by posting in the Comments below. Likewise, if you can't be there at the start, please give your ETA and we'll do our best to plan accordingly, but be prepared to wait for the next game if everybody's already playing when you arrive. Please note that the tables are reserved for us free of charge, so naturally we're expected to make purchases at the venue; £5 seems a reasonable minimum spend. They have a full selection of hot, soft and alcoholic drinks, plus bar snacks; they also serve Sunday Roasts until 4pm, and there's sometimes a Street Food Stall outside. We hope you'll enjoy coming to these meetups!
