What we're about

This meetup is for those who enjoy all kinds of books and board / card games.

As our meetup demand is far higher than we ever expected (we were lucky to have 4 attendees when we began this as a small group just before the pandemic!) we need to add a few extra guidelines to help our members attend regularly and not be stuck on waitlists.

Here are our new guidelines which will take effect for all our meetups going forward.

- The Waitlist will be considered a Standby list. This means that if you are on the Waitlist you are still planning to attend. If you are moved across to Going more than 2 hours prior to the the start time- and do not attend - you will be marked as No Show.

- If you are not able to attend you should update your RSVP at least 1 hour prior to the event start time. Updating your RSVP within one hour of the start time will result in a No Show.

- Members who receive a No Show will not be able to attend a further event until they have been in communication with the hosts. We will not be following with No Shows and will automatically remove them from future events until they have reached out to us.

- If someone receives a No Show marker on more than occasion or continually signs up to events after receiving a No Show marker, we will consider removing them from the group.

- First time attendees who sign up in advance will be messaged in the week leading up to the event and asked to confirm their attendance. If there is no reply within 48 hours of the event date and there is a waitlist we may give the space up to another member.

- We will be offering a Priority Pass for anyone that gets stuck on a Waitlist twice or more without attending. If you have missed any two events in a row due to the Waitlist, just send one of the hosts a DM and we will add you to one of our next events as soon as it is announced.

Note: We will not penalize anyone who notifies us and cancels at short notice due to emergencies, illness , circumstances relating to covid etc.


Can you make the attendance list bigger or have multiple groups?

Our intention is to keep this primarily as a social event based on meeting people , making friendships etc. Having multiple meetups or tables provides a different experience. We also want to prioritize safety. We will be keeping limits of 8 members for our general game meetups. We will continue hosting additional team games such as learn to play or team trivia games that can suit groups of 12 or 15. Book swaps will continue to be 12 people per meetup and escape rooms will be based on room capacity.

Can I run my own meetup in your group?

We are not looking for extra co-hosts at this time. If you wish to run your own meetup through your own account, please feel free to do so. We just ask you not to copy our exact event or descriptions (I.e the same time at the same venue or the same group name) so that it doesn't become confusing.
