Being new here,I am trying to find game groups near my area where I could possibly join. I do not have lots of experience in board games other than the usual suspects(risk,scrabble,atmosfear etc).
On the other hand I have since febuary started to add some more popular games to my collection.Battlestar galactica,Drakon 3rd edition,Starcraft the board game. I have also just ordered,Stone age,Fury of dracula and Colossal arena.
PS I am a 39 year old but only 18 at heart.

Check out this link for a monthly games group in Garforth (5 miles SE of Leeds). Meetings are on the last Saturday of the month (or is it the 4th Saturday?); 2-8pm. Hugo mocc is the organiser.

Beyond Monopoly, York, (1st and 3rd Saturdays, 10am-6+pm) might be worth a visit if you're not too far west.

Rob,

Based on where you live, Beyond Monopoly! in York shouldn't be too difficult for you to get to. If you live anywhere near Horsforth you could get the train, via Harrogate, to York, as Beyond Monopoly! is a two minute walk from the station at the Railway Institute.

I haven't been to the Garforth Gamers, but Hugo is a good guy and I'm sure will make you very welcome if you decide to go along.

Cheers,

Matt

Rob

There is a group of boardgamers that meet up at the Cottingley Con Club every Wednesday between 8pm and 11pm and we always welcome a new gamer.

There's normally between 4 to 8 of us and we play many different boardgames/cardgames.

If you are interested in coming drop me a personal message and I will give you details or you could just turn up, though the place is well hidden if you don't know Cottingley.

Regards

Mark

Hello Rob,

Our next meeting at Beyond Monopoly! is tomorrow, Saturday 6th June 2009. We really are just a few metres from the railway station in York, and your first day is free! You can come and go as you like during the day. We open at 10am, and we close at 6pm but we don't throw you out if you are playing something.

And we are genuinely York's friendliest boardgame club. You'll find lots of eurogames in our 250+ club collection, and other players bring in games too.

Hopefully, you can make it over. We meet on the first and third Saturday each month.

We also recommend you try Garforth, as above. Hugo is a great bloke, it's a very welcoming club. They meet on the last Saturday each month, and just celebrated their first birthday.
