Next meeting: Saturday 13 August from 4.30pm

We meet again on Saturday, starting at 4.30pm and gaming until late in the evening. There’s a charge £2 per person to cover the venue hire costs (£1 for unwaged), but your first visit is free. To give you an idea of the type of games we play, take a look at the photos from our last meeting at the end of this post.

We meet in Christchurch church hall (also known as Circus Central) in Shieldfield, close to the city centre and bus and metro stops. 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 Sainsburys 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.

Next meeting: Saturday 30 August from 4.30pm

There’s an extra Saturday this month, so we’ve had a longer than usual gap between meetings, but we meet again on Saturday. After a couple of all day sessions we’re back to the normal start time of 4.30pm.

Games played, Saturday 09 August 2014

We had the second of our summer all-day sessions last weekend, with 43 people coming by through the course of the day. We started off with a few games of Two Rooms and a Boom with up to eighteen players, before splitting into smaller groups as more people arrived. A couple of groups that took advantage of the extra gaming time to play long games: A Distant Plain and Roads & Boats, each of which took around six hours to complete. Most people stuck to more normal length games; you can see photos of some of these below.

As August has five Saturdays this year there will be an extra week until our next meeting, which will be on Saturday 30 August. For that one we’ll be back to our usual start time of 4.30pm.

Next meeting: Saturday 09 August from 10.00am

We meet again on Saturday for the second of the free, all-day sessions that we have this summer. It’s in the usual place: Circus Central, starting at 10am and carrying on through the afternoon and evening.

August is one of those terrible months where there are five Saturdays, so it will three weeks until the following meeting, on Saturday 30 August. For that one we’re going back to the normal start time of 4.30pm. The long wait until our next meeting makes it even more important that you get along early this weekend, so that you can play enough games to make it through the long days ahead.
