Next meeting: Saturday 28 March from 4.30pm

After a break of three weeks, we meet again on Saturday. This is the first of three consecutive Saturdays when we have sessions; we’ve added in an extra one on the Easter weekend, and made the first two in April all-day events. Here’s a list of dates and times for our next few meetings:

  • Saturday 28 March, from 4.30pm.
  • Saturday 04 April, from 10.00am.
  • Saturday 11 April, from 10.00am.
  • Saturday 25 April, from 4.30pm.

Saturday 11 April 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.

This weekend’s meeting is, as always, 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.

If you’re wondering what to expect take a look at photos from previous meetings, showing the types of games that are played. 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 07 March from 4.30pm

There’s a change to our normal meeting schedule in March. Normally we meet on the second and last Saturdays of each month, but we’ve brought our next meeting forward a week due to an event being held in our normal venue on 14 March. This means our next meeting is this weekend, starting at 4.30pm. There’s then a three week gap until 28 March, and then we are hoping to mix things up again the following month with an extra, all day, session on 04 April, but that hasn’t yet been confirmed.

Update (04 March). We’ve now had the bookings for April confirmed, and so this means that our next few meetings are:

  • Saturday 07 March, from 4.30pm.
  • Saturday 28 March, from 4.30pm.
  • Saturday 04 April, from 10.00am.
  • Saturday 11 April, from 10.00am.
  • Saturday 25 April, from 4.30pm.

Next meeting and AGM: Saturday 28 February from 4.30pm

We meet again on Saturday, starting at 4.30pm. We’re having our annual general meeting at the start of the session; we’ll be discussing plans for developing the group as well as administrative matters such as approving the club’s accounts and electing officers. This should take half an hour at most, and then we can get down to gaming.

The meeting is, as always, 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.

Next meeting: Saturday 14 February from 4.30pm

We meet again on Saturday, starting at 4.30pm. This is Valentine’s day, so I hope that you’re either bringing your loved one with you, or have thought of a very good excuse as to why you’re abandoning them to go and play boardgames.

The meeting is, as always, 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.

A couple of items of news:

  • The following session, on Saturday 28 February, will also be the club’s Annual General Meeting. We’ll hold the AGM at the start of the session, and don’t expect that it will take away too much gaming time.
  • We have agreed to change one of our meeting dates in March, as Circus Central asked if they could use the hall on the evening of 14 March for an event. We’ve moved this one forward a week, to Saturday 07 March. We then return to our normal pattern of second and last Saturdays, with a session on Saturday 28 March.
