I've just arrived from overseas and am busy setting everything up--finding a flat, a bank, a game group, etc. I'm working at the Uni, and am primarily interested in heavy Euros, economic games, and 18XX, though I'll happily tolerate lighter fare as well.

Anything doing?

Apologies for the FB link but it's the more active forum.

https://www.facebook.com/StabconSouth/?fref=ts

Stabcon South is a boardgames convention event that happens at the Jury's Inn every 6 months, at the very least you should come along to that but I would contact the lovely people who run it through the FB page and see if they can help with more regular local meetups

(I'm not a local, but I make the trek to this when I can)

Hi,

I'm in a similar position as it looks like I'll be spending a lot of evenings in the Southampton area through work over the next 3-4 months.

If anyone knows of a group, of is keen to get together for a game or 2 please feel free to let me know. Happy to transport anything from my collection down to the area for the week if it helps

If you are prepared to go further afield there is a club that meets in Fratton, Portsmouth on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, called Portsmouth on Board:

http://www.meetup.com/Portsmouth-On-Board/

There is a wide range of games played there and they always welcome newcomers.

I have also heard of a gaming café in Southampton called Board in the City but have not been there myself:

Hi there, if you can make it to Eastleigh, we have an evening at The Point theatre on Tuesday 15th November, here's the link - https://www.facebook.com/events/1199987153394334

From January, this is going to become a monthly thing on the third Tuesday of every month as we have to work around the theatre's show schedules, but it's free to come along, and we usually get at least 20 people so there's plenty of options!

Heh, could be easier than you think as I'm currently holed up in the Hilton just down the road (nowhere near as glamorous as this might sound)...

I'll stick this one in the calendar and hopefully I'll be around that evening. Thanks for letting me know.
