Got a UK-based game group, want to let others know about it? Then pop it in this list. If you are a member of the group or you just want to be made aware of any activities the group may be running then make sure to Subscribe to the individual item, this way when the item is edited you will be sent a notification.

In addition, you can use this list for any UK-based event that repeats on a regular basis, like conventions. I would also suggested starting a thread for your group/event in our General Forum so that you can link your list to a more convenient location for people to ask further questions and/or chat.

Don't forget you can make your item more appealing with photos and links etc. Make sure to include times, dates, whether the group is invite only, what style of games you play, whether there is a charge etc.

Social Games Evenings
At the Blue Anchor, Crowborough, East Sussex

Sunday Evenings from 6pm
27th February
13th March
27th March
10th April

Our aim is to raise the awareness of modern card and board games (albeit at the lighter end of the spectrum), through playing games in a visible public space and inviting / promoting the event within the local community. We (Imagination Gaming and myself) will provide a variety of games for people to try; what might be described as a taster session.

The hope is to have a lively evening where people have the opportunity to play new games and have a lot of fun. If things go well then maybe it will become a gaming group in its own right.

Venue: Blue Anchor (http://www.shepherdneame.co.uk/pub/crowborough/blue-anchor.a...), Crowborough Beacon Road, Crowborough, East Sussex, TN6 1BB starting at 6pm a week on Sunday.

Charge: £1

More Info: Facebook Group: Social Gamers - Crowborough or mail me via the Geek

The South London Warlords

The Club meets every Monday evening (except Bank Holidays and the month of August) at St. Barnabas Parish Hall in Gilkes Place, Dulwich Village, London between 7:30pm and 11:00pm, with extended Saturday sessions around eight times a year. On the last Monday of each month the Club often puts on a large participation game, an ideal opportunity for new members to join in and for established members to try something new.

BATH GAMING GROUP

We meet every Tuesday night, except the first Tuesday of each month, at 7.30pm in the upstairs room at St James Wine Vaults, St James Square, Bath, BA1 2TW.

We play a variety of modern board and card games such as Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Agricola, Dominion, and many more, and everybody is welcome to come along and join in. Don't worry if you've never played these games before -- none of us have played everything and learning something new is all part of the fun.

Whilst there are no direct fees at the moment, a suggested £1 contribution towards the hire of the room each week would be appreciated. Be there promptly at 7.30pm if you want to play!
