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 mention that it's your first time.

Don't worry if you don't know how to place 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 40 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.

Lobstercon VII:  The Seventh Wonder

The seventh instalment of our biannual seaside gaming event will be held Easter weekend 2014, at our regular venue, the York House Hotel in Eastbourne.

Update:  2 Feb 2014

Invitations have now been sent out to the 65 LoBsters with the most attendances who'd RSVP'd before 31 Jan.  A waiting list has been created for those who RSVP'd but didn't make the cutoff for attendances.  If/when spots are opened up, they will have first refusal on new slots.

If you would still like to come, you may now join the waiting list, but you will be behind all those who RSVP'd earlier.

General Notes:

For this weekend, we again have use of two gaming rooms, starting on Friday morning.  However, on Easter Monday, the smaller gaming room will be unavailable to us, but we will still have use of the basement room until 5:00 p.m. that day.

The Hotel has reserved 30 bedrooms for our group to book at the special conference rate, which you can get only by booking directly with the hotel.  If the hotel tell you they have no more rooms available, PLEASE contact me and I will try to sort something out with the hotel.  The reason we are getting use of these two function rooms for free is because most of us stay at the hotel itself, so please try to book your rooms at the York House Hotel itself. 

We have this space for the whole day so feel free to come along and enjoy some games whenever you can make it.

Every week, London-on-Board hits The Old Star pub in Westminster for a few pints, some good pub grub, and of course, lots and lots of board games.

We're immediately across the road from St. James' Park tube station, so it really can't get more convenient, and we're normally there for 9 solid hours of gaming goodness!!!

Newbies especially welcome and if you get there at 11:00 a.m. prompt, you're most likely to not have to wait around to hop into a game straight-away.

RSVP's for all weekend events open up approximately two weeks before the event itself.

Special Note: If you're a gamer visiting London from abroad, and would like to attend one of our meetups, send a message to one of the organisers (Jeff or Martin) with the dates you are in London and we'll make sure you get a slot at one of our upcoming events.
