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.

Alongside tonight's regular gaming, you'll have the chance to learn to play Illimat [https://www.illimat.com/].

We're delighted to welcome Keith Baker and Jenn Ellis who co-created Illimat with American indie-rock band The Decemberists. Illimat initially has the feel of a classic card game, but soon reveals its hidden strategic twists.

Keith and Jenn will be on hand to introduce, teach and play Illimat with us all evening!

If you're coming to London on Board for the first time for this, please read the rest of what follows carefully, especially the third point about RSVPs.
