I was easy to be invited to join in a game and spend the rest of the day playing one game after another with the same group.

After being in the group for only a month, it has become my activity. The people are nice and you can play a vast variety of games. I would recommend this group to anyone that enjoys playing board games with friendly people in an inviting atmosphere.

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.

This week normal gaming will augmented with the opportunity to get a demo of "Magnate: The First City"; prototypes of which got a lot of buzz at various gaming conventions over the last year. The designer, and friend of LoB, James Naylor has kindly agreed to give us a chance to try the finished game.

Welcome to LoB. Every LoB event is suitable for newbies (by which we mean new to games, rather than new to this group) but each month we host special newbie events with a focus on more accessible games. This is one of those.

Regular members: please bring and be prepared to teach accessible games. However, if you’d like to teach a less accessible game to newbies, then post that as a ‘newbie teaching game’ on the event page and – if newbies sign up for it, go ahead. But please don’t go ahead with all experienced players – leave that for one of the many other events in the month.

If you have questions or need help, either ask the Host (if there is one) or find one of our Helpers (check list of attendees for anyone marked 'Event organizer') and just ask! Helpers are always happy to answer your questions or clarify any how the event works. Even if there is no host or helper you should find us a helpful and friendly bunch so don't be afraid to ask questions.

If you’re new, please check out our guide for new players (http://www.meetup.com/LondonOnBoard/pages/Guide_for_newcomers/).

Please RSVP if you are planning to attend, and make sure it is up to date if your plans change. Be considerate of other members – we often have large waiting lists. Similarly, please don't turn up if your RSVP is not confirmed, as space is limited.

Admittance is free – but please buy drinks and/or food at the venue. Our use of the room is dependent on the pub making some money on the night.

Please treat games with care: when you’ve finished a game, check the components are all present, pack them in the box as you found them and put the game back where you found it. Also, if you move tables please return them to their original arrangement once you are finished.

Check out our lovely forums ( https://www.meetup.com/LondonOnBoard/messages/boards/ ), where you can discuss all things LoB (including tournaments, lost & found, trading and special events).
