Next week I'm moving back to Solihull after over a decade of living in Budapest and I'd love to meet up with any fellow gamers in the area. I play everything including 2-player Kosmos games, light Eurogames, Ameritrash, gamers' games, block wargames, CDGs and OCS.

If you fancy a trip one Monday evening there is a meeting of gamers in a little pub in central Coventry. We have a page at
http://www.meetup.com/The-Coventry-Gamers-Group/

We usually get between 8 and 20 people each Monday and we play games ranging from Hey That's My Fish to Le Havre.

There are a couple of groups I know of in the Birmingham area -

Afternoon Play - http://www.facebook.com/#!/afternoonplay

Meets up on the first sunday of the month in a coffe house in the centre of birmingham. Shorter, smaller games tend to get played as the session only lasts a few hours.

Bromsgrove Group - http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/7440211#7440211

Meets up on 2nd and last sunday of every month in Bromsgrove. Again in a coffee shop, but there is a longer time period, so longer games might be a good fit. Group has only just been established, so I have yet to go to a meet up.

South Birmingham Boardgamers - have read they meet up one friday a month. I don't know much else about them though, and they have no FB page to link.

Hopefully see you soon.

There's Tamworth and Nuneaton if you don't mind a short drive.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Bromsgrove is actually every Wednesday evening at the hope pole in. I go over there from sunny wythall, which is almost Solihull.

Essentially there are a few different styles of groups and venues which, I think it's fair to say, attract different types of people. I'm sure you'll find a bracket. Although I haven't found the overall scene across Birmingham to be as vibrant as I'd have thought.

Feel free to get GM me directly if my collection looks anything like yours.

Hey Scott,

I'd be interested in how useful my project – Meeple Mapper – would be to someone moving back to the UK.

It's pretty straight-forward, just input your postcode and it'll show you which meet-ups are nearest to you (and when they meet).

Looks tidy enough there!
