Hello,

We have recently moved to a village near Richmond, N.Yorks and would love to meet some new people to play boardgames with.

There is me and my husband, 29 and 31 respectively, I'm not overly keen on games which are too complex but he is a much bigger geek than me and will play most things! Things we have played recently include Dominion, Small World, Eclipse.

I'm happy to organise, find venue etc but need to know there is actually some interested ppl first!

Give me a shout if you are interested.

Hi
Depending on which side of Richmond you live - I might be interested.
I live in Staindrop and go through to Durham most Wednesdays and Thursdays, though.

We are near Ravensworth so just off A66 so hopefully right side of Richmond! Out of interest where in Durham do you go?

I have been a member of the Durham Wargames Group for much of the last 35 years. We rent rooms 24/7 in the Vane Tempest Hall in Gilesgate. Although the Group is primarily a figure/model wargaming group there are a small group (up to 10-ish) of us who play boardgames. We meet on Wednesday evenings and Thursday evenings (the normal Group night) starting at around 7pm and going on as long as we feel able. We also spend the whole day playing a game (or games), starting at around 10am, on the first Sunday of the month. You would both be most welcome. Clare is very keen not to be the only female.

I am currently in Essen attending Spiel so am planning on shewing off my 'loot' next week! devil

I've tried on a couple of occasions to set up a boardgaming club in Barnard Castle but without any interest.
Please let me know if you manage to get something started.
All the best,
John

And near Staindrop too, Charlie

Unfortunately, in practice, Richmond is only marginally closer to Staindrop than Durham is. And, I have been persuaded to take on the role of Secretary of the DWG. ninja

Hi folks,

We live in Richmond and like all manner of board-games, wargames and so on. We have a small network of gamers in the area. We meet in varying numbers and varying places as often as we can manage.

If you are interested in meeting up over a cup of tea and possibly a game, let me know. We live on the North side of Richmond. One of our guys (Mike) has already announced himself further up this thread.

Cheers
Paul and Gill

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in coming back to you. We'd definitely be interested in meeting up for a cuppa and a game, my hubby in particular is desperate to find some more people to play with.

Give me a PM if the offer still stands

Thanks!

Just seeing if there is anything going on here, or in Darlington, just about to move there for work and got used to playing games regularly prior to moving, so would love opportunities in and around this area...

There are always the boardgamers of the Durham Wargames Group.
We meet on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from ~19.00 until the dice/cards/... fall from our nerveless fingers!!
We also have an all-day session on (usually) the first Sunday of the month to play those longer zombie games.
The Durham Wargames Group rents rooms 24/7 in Vale Tempest Hall (Gilesgate Community Centre) Gilesgate (!), Durham just behind the Queen's Head PH.

All welcome.

Hello,

I am also new to Richmond. I'm available most days to play board games, even at short notice.

I have a few games myself, but recently I've been addicted to Cthulhu Wars and have poured a lot of money into it! It's short, and so varied. I really recommend you try it.

Other games I have:

Doom
Memoir 44
Robo Rally
Risk 2215
War at Sea (Imperial Japanese Navy)

I also like:

Smash Up
Small World

Contact me if you fancy a game.

Paul
