Next meeting: Saturday 09 May from 4.30pm

We meet again on Saturday, starting at 4.30pm. As always, the meeting is in Christ church hall (also known as Circus Central) in Shieldfield, close to the city centre and bus and metro stops. There’s a charge £2 per person to cover the venue hire costs (£1 for unwaged), but your first visit is free. The venue has a small kitchen area with microwave and cutlery. Takeaways can be ordered in, or bring your own food with you. There’s a small branch of Sainsbury’s next door (open until 11pm) which is handy for drinks and snacks.

There’s always a large selection of games brought along by club regulars, and people will explain the rules for each game when you sit down to play, so don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with a particular title. If you’d like to bring your own games along that’s fine too.

We broke another attendance record at our last meeting: we had 48 people in, the most we’ve had for an evening session (we’ve had more at all-day sessions, including our all time record of 58 just a fortnight before). Photos of a few of the games played are below.

International Tabletop Day, Saturday 11 April from 10.00am

After a very successful all-day meeting last weekend, we’re doing it all again on Saturday which also happens to be International Tabletop Day.

We’ll be opening the doors at 10am and playing games through the morning, the afternoon and the evening, until late in the night. You can come along for the duration, or just drop in for a couple of hours. There are always enough people around to have games starting throughout the session, so you should never have more than a short wait before there’s a game starting that you can join. There’s an Eventbrite page for this session; please share this with anyone you think might be interested. It will let you register for the event, but that’s entirely optional; you can just turn up on the day and join in.

You don’t need to bring anything with you. The club has a small collection of games and other members will bring games with them, so there will always be a large range to choose from. If you don’t know the rules to a game then you’re likely to able to find someone willing to teach them.

We meet very close to Newcastle city centre, in Christ Church Hall in Shieldfield. This faces Northumbria University Campus East and is next to Christ Church Primary School and Shieldfield Green. There’s a gated car park next to the venue; if you’re using public transport then the venue is just a couple of minutes walk from the Manors metro and rail stations, and lots of buses stop nearby on New Bridge Street.

The venue has a small kitchen area with microwave and cutlery. Takeaways can be ordered in, or bring your own food, drink and snacks. There are shops within walking distance if you’ve forgotten something important.

To give an idea of some of the games that you might be able to play, here are a few pictures from our meeting last weekend.

We meet again this Saturday for an all-day gaming session, starting at 10.00am and carrying on until late in the evening.

We also have another all-day session next weekend, on Saturday 11 April. This is International Tabletop Day and we’ve decided to make it a free session, with no charge for anyone. One of the goals of Tabletop Day is to grow the hobby; please try and spread the word about our meeting to anyone you think might be interested. There’s an Eventbrite event that has more details.

If you’re wondering what to expect take a look at the photos below showing a few of the games that were played at our last couple of meetings. There’s always a large selection of games brought along by club regulars, and people will explain the rules for each game when you sit down to play, so don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with a particular title.
