There wasn't much overall co-ordination. No one was lining up games or checking to see whether games were likely to finish together to mix players up. Although I enjoyed the games I played, I was disappointed.

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.

Welcome to LoB. Some points to consider:

• If you’re new, please check out our guide for new players. Some events will have a named Host, but at most events you will find one or more Helpers (indicated next to the names of some of our regulars on the right). 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. 

• 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 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.

• If you move tables to play on please make sure you return them to their original arrangement once you are finished.

• Check out our lovely forums, where you can discuss all things LoB (including tournaments, lost & found, trading and special events).

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

• Have fun!

Welcome to the annual logic-, nature- and physiology-defying Kwazy Kwistmas Quiz. It will be loud. It will be raucous. It will not be a normal meeting. Don't come here prepared to play "Terraforming Sycthe", "The 7th Incontinent" or whatever fancy-schmancy "deep" game is fashionable now. It will not be permitted. There will be quizzing.

And we will quiz hard.

First questions / round approximately 6:30. Bonus points for best Xmas jumper / frock and probably other random criteria.

As numbers thin in the evening on weekends this event gives those gamers who are not around all day the chance to join the fun when the evening rolls around. 

Signing up to this event allows you to attend the normal weekend gaming from 17:30 onwards. 

You do not have to sign up for this if you have an RSVP for the whole day. 

Please do not turn up before 17:30.
