Hi guys

I wouldn't really call my self a geek, but I've always wanted to join in with table top games and role playing.

How do it give this a go? I'm finding it difficult to find any local groups.

I'm from Barnsley, Northern England.

BoardGameGeek has a find nearest user in The miscellaneous section. Geekmail them and see if they know any good spots/groups to play.

Go to the main forum and look toward the bottom of the list, there should be regional area for Europe including, England and post the question there. Hopefully they can find a gaming group near you.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

If you're on Facebook, join this group and say Hi...

I find it much more useful for finding people that BGG.

I see you are looking for a gaming group, and I'm sure in time you'll find it.

In the meantime be sure to check some single player board games, you would be amazed. Check 1 Player Guild

There's a board games shop in Sheffield called Patriot Games. They have board gaming nights in a big room above the shop every Wednesday and Friday http://www.patriotgames.ltd.uk/store/

If you're on Facebook, then they have a group called something like "Patriot Games Sheffield Board Gaming Group" where people discuss whose going on which nights and what games people want to play.

We play everything from quick light card games to heavy war or euro games and everything in between. Some games are organised in advance on the forum or you can just turn up and either bring your own games or jump in on what's going on.
