Does anyone know if there is a boardgame group, informal or otherwise, that meets in or around Leeds (in the UK).

I've been scouring the Geek for a while now and made a couple of purchases widely recommended for hooking in non-gamers, but my mates don't seem that interested. I get the odd game in here and there but it doesn't look like the chance to step up to the more demanding games is going to come anytime soon.


Ideally it would be to play a reasonable range of boardgames, not necessarily just euros. Sorry there's nothing input on my user profile, so no clues there but I'm pretty much open to anything, although things like hardcore diplomacy-only groups are probably not what I'm looking for (I know, beggars can't be choosers an' all that).

Cheers.

You need to visit 'Travelling Man' a shop located in 'the Corn Exchange' in Leeds city centre.

They used to have a notice board up with various BG groups/events pinned on. They've gone a bit upmarket recently, but If you ask someone behind the boardgame section desk I'm sure they can help.

Well Phil, I don't know of any groups in Leeds itself, although I live there. I play with Jon Power's group in York alternate Sundays, and you'd be welcome if that is a possibility for you. But I'd be also interested in opportunities to play in Leeds. Whereabouts do you live? Leave me a message in my inbox.

Hello Phil,
You're very welcome to give us a try. It is pretty much euro games for us, board and card games. I don't do war games or anything *very* long and heavy, but I know Richard is looking to play stuff like that too. Drop either of us a message.

Richard is coming up to play on Tuesday the 28th, and we haven't yet fixed whether we're playing on the Sunday after, in the new year.

I've only got 1047 games to choose from. Is that enough?

Drop either of us a line if you're interested.

Cheers,
Jon.
