We live in Edinburgh, but unfortunately our main gaming day is at ours on a Sunday and we're already jam packed. We'd be willing to meet up with you for the odd game during the week/Saturday though. Always great to meet new people. I definitely want to play a bit more than I currently do.

There is Edinburgh League of Gamers which I've only been to once. It was very wargame heavy. We were the only two board gamers. I'll be going along a bit more often, but probably not every week. If you're interested, we could coordinate what days to attend. The location has a bar attached, the beer is cheap and just about drinkable.

Hi,

If you are free on thursday evenings then you could try coming along to
http://seswc.co.uk/

We meet at 7:30 in the Royal Navy, Royal Marine Club (see website for directions)

It's a lively and mixed club with about 50 members who play boardgames, figure wargames and RPGs.
It also has cheap beer (by Edinburgh standards!)

Come along, you'd be most welcome.

Regards
John

There's also ORC Edinburgh - http://www.orcedinburgh.co.uk/ - that meet on Saturdays from 1pm to 5pm. We're a Roleplaying group but have a monthly board game meet on a Saturday night at the flat of one of the members.

Worth popping into Black Lion - http://www.black-lion.co.uk/ - the best place in Edinburgh to get your games.

There are two Conventions held in Edinburgh (November) and Glasgow (June) every year.
See WWW.DICECON.COM

And Glasgow University has a Con in February.

There's also a day in August at Meadowbank Stadium called Claymore run by the SouthEast Scotland Wargames Club
http://seswc.co.uk/
Although this is heavily focused towards wargaming the Bring and Buy is worth a visit and there's usually a couple of stands selling boardgames (though they weigh their stock in favour of wargaming for obvious reasons).

Black Lion is definitely the shop to head for in Edinburgh.

Static Games in Glasgow is also very good, but they're not in Argyle Market like most of the Google hits suggest. They moved to
35 King Street
Glasgow
G1 5RA
Their eBay store is http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Static-Games
