Hi folks,

Does anyone know of any board game groups in and around the Greenwich/Lewisham area?

I'm tempted to set one up, based at the Spanish Galleon at Cutty Sark, but thought it prudent to ask around after interest and other groups before I do.

Gareth

I think there was one a year or so ago, back when Compendia was still open but it died out. Is the one in Lee still going?

Of course, you're only a quick DLR ride away from 6 days a week of gaming at London on Board...

I've joined the Hither Green board game group through meetup.com. I'll have to see how active that group is.

As for LoB, it still means travelling into and out of the city, which while fine some of the time is just difficult enough to justify putting something more 'local' together.

I'm sure there are probably 10-15 gamers within a five minute walk of Hither Green station or Cutty Sark etc.

Cheers. I'll drop a note over.

Any other takers?

Just moved from Bow to Wimbledon, so I'll miss out on whatever fun you set up. Fortunately LoB is still within reach

We are in West Ham and would be happy to hear details of any gaming this end of London. Obviously as we work close to LoB Teri and I will still go there mostly but it is good to know what options are out there.

I work close to City Airport, so there may be some mileage in that. I'll keep this thread dedicated to SE London for now but an East London thread may have something going for it at this rate.

The Vanburgh group is no more (in the sense of meeting at the pub). We still keep in touch, but I've moved away from the area as well now etc. There are definitely players around that area, I still know a few, so give it a go by all means!

I felt the Lewisham one was more wargames D&D as opposed to strategy/euro games? (I might be wrong!)

Thanks Rohlfo, something of a shame as Vanburgh is very accessible for me.

can always try starting it again?
Was originally started by Compendia who are no more. On top of that, two in the group got a child (so busy), I moved away, and another couple we used to meet up with slit up! So all in all it did kinda die out...but I know for a fact there are gamers in and around Greenwich, wish you all the best!

I'm in Mottingham and very much looking around for a group to go to to get playing. I joined the Hither Green group on meetup, but it looks quite inactive. Did you find anything going on our way??

Sounds a great idea, and top location!

I'm thinking of setting up a board game stall at Greenwich market next year, doing 3D printed games including some original stuff.

If it all works out I can happily promote anything going on in the local area

Maybe even play the odd quick game one afternoon at the market!

I live near Canary wharf and would love to find a local games meet

If we could find a venue we probably have 5 or so people already....
