Hi everyone,

My wife and I have just dipped our toes into the board gaming scene by purchasing a few games (Lord of the Rings/WoW board game) and having a weekly board game night with the kids. We would (or at least I would) like some more adult company and would like to try out a wider variety of board games but it can be very difficult finding a group of friends to play games on a regular basis.

So I thought I'd post here and see if there were any groups of gamers looking for one or two new members in the Bradford or Leeds area.

If so, let me know! Thanks!

Hi,

There's the Leeds Meeples that sound like a friendly bunch: http://www.leedsmeeples.org.uk/

And if you fancy straying into Huddersfield territory then you are more than welcome to join my game group that meets every second Thursday: https://www.facebook.com/groups/345689185550522/

There is a well established group that meet in Headingley on Thursday nights.

There is also a small but friendly group that has just started in Otley, on Monday nights at the Old Fleece from 6:30pm. It has been running for about a month now. I go to that and you, or anyone, is more than welcome to come along. It is probably a good idea to let

Yes, the Otley group is still going strong on Monday nights from 6:30pm. We are no longer at the Old Fleece, but have moved to the Yew Tree Inn in Otley.

Everyone is welcome to come along. You can either bring games with you, or play what someone else brings. There are no shortage of games there. Don't worry if you don't know many games, people are more than happy to teach games.
