Description Edit | History

A weekly games club that meets on Thursdays at 7:00pm in Epsom (convenient for gamers based in Surrey, and South-West London) - all types of gamers welcome, from beginners to hardcore veterans. Bring along something you want to play or just turn up empty handed and play whatever is going on, it is up to you.

Our weekly Thursday sessions are held at 'The River Club', on the High Street in Epsom (above McDonalds) - this replaced our initial venue for the club, which was the Royal British Legion, also in Epsom. Please note there is a one-off £5.00 life-membership charge for joining 'The River Club', which can be arranged on the evening, but for a first visit (i.e. new to the games club) we think it's possible to be signed in by a member as a guest - please let us know you are coming. All EGC regulars should, however, join on their first visit. Apart from that attendance/entry is free, but we will be regarded more favourably if we do try and spend some money behind the bar - they do food, tea/coffee as well as normal bar fare. It is a terrific place to play games, well lit, fairly quiet (but not deathly) and we have the use of a number of poker-tables on which to play - very civilized.


We also hold a once a month Saturday games day - typically 3rd Saturday of each month but it can very occasionally 'udge' around slightly - you will find details in the Guild calendar. We hold our monthly Saturday sessions (10:00 to 18:00) at St Mary's Church Hall in Ewell (KT17 2BB). Due to having to hire the hall, there is a charge of £5.00 for attending[*], however, free parking and being able to bring your own food and drink should make the overall experience actually cheaper than meeting in a central Epsom pub venue. Tea/coffee will be available for a small charge.

[*] If you have never attended one of our evening sessions or Saturday sessions before, then your first Saturday visit is free. If you can only attend for part of the day (up to 3 hours or so) then the charge will only be £3.00. There will be no charge for those still in full-time education, and anyone else who finds themselves in an 'unwaged' position can feel free to contribute what they are comfortable with (a £1 contribution would be fine).

Disabled access at our venues: - 'The River Club' is on the 2nd floor up several flights of stairs and there is no lift so I'm afraid there is no disabled access. St Mary's Church Hall has full disabled access and toilets. At 'The Vestry', our fall-back and 'ad hoc' venue, we use an upstairs mezzanine area and again there is no disabled access to it, although the pub itself is fully accessible and we have managed to run a satellite table in the downstairs area for those who cannot manage the stairs.


As a side note: if arriving by train at Epsom, be advised that Epsom lies one stop outside Zone 6, and you cannot pay the excess at the station - indeed, gangs of inspectors are frequently hanging around at the exit gates to inflict a £20 penalty fare on you. Get your fare extension before you travel. At least 3 guild members have been ambushed by this scam by Southern Railways. An alternative for people travelling from London is to take the tube to Morden and get the 293 to Epsom High Street.
