Hello all,

I'm aiming to launch a new boardgame club in the Northamptonshire town of Towcester. The website is coming together http://www.towcester-tabletops.com and soon i will start promoting the club locally but i thought I should announce it on here first.

Good luck Matthew. When it gets up and running don't forget to add it to the UK FAQ page.

Well I'd suggest not putting it on thursdays as that would clash with Newport Pagnell and you'd be dividing the people that go there.

I know I travel to NP and it takes 40 minutes ish. A trip to Towcester from me will take 35ish. For the sake of 5 minutes I know I'd go to NP as I like the venue, people etc. On a different day though I'd be tempted to go to towcester if it fits round my other plans.

Hey Ben,

Yeah, just like you I enjoy attending NPBGC on Thursdays when I can but unfortunately due to work commitments, I sometimes can't make it in time on a Thursday due to the distance/starting time.

I will try to avoid Thursdays but the activities of the club will be driven by its members. Currently its just me and a few potentially interested parties but it's early days...

I would have to switch my regular Tuesday night gaming to a Monday or a Wednesday and get permission to play regularly from SWMBO but otherwise count me in. Everywhere in Towcester is within walking distance from me which can only mean one thing
...whistle

Cheers
D.

Ben, you got your wish. Towcester Tabletops officially meet at the Brave Old Oak pub in Towcester on alternate Tuesday nights

Hi,

Just to let you know that there is a games club in Brackley that meets every Tuesday night - the Brackley & District Gamers, or the BAD Gamers, for short.

Club is both miniature and board gamers, with a monthly Role Playing game also.

Most club nights we have 6-8 boardgamers.

Here's our website (just a place holder at the mo)

http://thebadgamers.com

Here's our Facebook page (more info

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-BAD-Gamers-Brackley-and-D...

Might be an option for those weeks when the Towcester club doesn't meet and also would be good to have a club to club visit now and again.

Finally, we're having an allday gaming Sunday on the last Sunday in January (26th?), and you'd be more than welcome to join in.

Hi Ignazio,

The Towcester club collapsed about a year ago when one founding member moved to Oman for 6 months and the other founding member (me) had a baby, or at least my wife did.

Be happy to get the crew back together for a one off special though if you're up for it?

You are more than welcome to promote any events on there.
Also if you're not busy, please feel free to come over to our 3rd Games Day event on 18th September in Wellingborough, you can find details on the FB group page or here at www.gamesday.moonfruit.com
All the best and good luck with the club
