What we're about

Welcome to Tabletop Gaming!

Here you can indulge in board games of all sorts and make new friends.

RSVP and come to our events! Please let others know what time you plan on arriving and what games you are going to bring if any. You are welcome to bring your own games but not food and drink.

At present we meet at two venues in West London. One is the Tabard pub in Chiswick (on Saturdays) and another is a games club in Richmond called The Library Pot.

The meetups at the pub are held on Saturdays and they are usually free to get in but we need to bring our own games to play. Please buy something at the pub venue we rely on the pubs’ good will to secure spaces for free and in return they hope to make some money from our custom at the bar.

For meetups at the games club, The Library Pot, there is usually a £5 fee or £10 minimum spend per person per session, unless stated otherwise on the event. Check each event to see what is going on. There is a minimum age of 8 and all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

There are over 595 games at The Library Pot and a large menu of food and drink where almost every item on it has been requested by our meetup members. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes available.

It is worth mentioning please be nice to each other and look after the games. Remember to be welcoming when players turn up. If you are in the middle of the game invite them to sit next to you and watch while they are waiting for a new game to start. Be inclusive and polite.

It's in West London.

It's about all your table-top gaming.

It's an inclusive, friendly group.
