A very welcoming non-judgemental crowd - The perfect start for anyone considering joining meetup.com at all, let alone boardgaming!!! :D I find that the best way to pick up the rules is not just to listen to the always generous and patient instructions; but, also, to learn from every move other players do and sometimes early on to even ask them their motivation for doing so. I hardly win yet; but I love being part of the game, applying those rules to do relatively well in the game for a newbie!!! WATCH OUT WORLD!!! HERE I COME!!! :D

Excellent group, met lots of interesting people and had so much fun. There are a couple of games that are quite scary, can't wait to reach that level and play with more complicated ones:-)))))

About London on Board

London on Board is a board game club that meets a couple of times a week in central London to play board and card games.

We're a mixed bag of game players. Some of us have been playing board games for aaaaaages, some of us have only just begun to discover the wealth of board games out there. Some of us prefer Euros, others are more interested in the American style, dripping with theme board games. Some of us like abstracts. Some of us just like everything. All of us like to play games and just having a good time. We live all over London have been gathering players from all over Europe and beyond!

New To Board Games?

New players are always welcome at London on Board. Simply pick a meetup time from the upcoming events below, RSVP via meetup.com (which is free to join), and turn up.

The board game table There's generally a table with a pile of board games on it, such as the one in the picture on the right. Either lurk by the table, which is where people meet while they're forming groups and deciding what to play, or catch someone's attention and say that it's your first time.

Don't worry if you don't know how to play the games on show - someone will always explain the rules!

Games played at London on Board

We play just about anything from The Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne through to the latest releases. Below are a few games played at a recent event:

For full event details and to RSVP visit our meetup group.

If you are new to London on Board check out this guide for new players. If you have any questions on the night or are having trouble getting into a game, then look out for the night's host, listed to the right.

If you plan on attending please RSVP. We only have 35 chairs and it gets uncomfortable for everyone if more people than that turn up. Similarly, please change your RSVP to no if it turns out you can't make it. 

We won't have access to the games library so please bring games if you are able to. 

Have fun.

Admittance is free - but please buy a drink and/or food at the pub if you can. Our use of the room is dependent on the pub making some money on the night. 

Please read our rules and regulations. Attendance at LoB indicates your agreement with these.

Almost every Saturday, you'll find our group at The Theodore Bullfrog pub - from 11:00 a.m. until late...

The pub is extremely convenient to Charing Cross and Embankment Stations, and has a reasonable food/drinks menu.

Why not come and join us for some Board-Gaming fun?

This Sunday we will be hosting the first LOB Ticket to Ride Championship. Players of all ability are welcome to join. The competition will start at 12pm and it would be great if entrants could try and arrive by 11.30.
