What time are the events?
Events are held at 8pm on Thursday evenings whenever 3 or more players are available. The day can be changed if needed.
Where do you meet up?
At my house off Riverfield Drive, Bedford (not USA).
Can anybody join?
The only stipulation is that children will need to be accompanied by an adult and be able to sit through a lengthy game (actually the last part applies to adults too).
How do I become a member?
Show an interest.
How much does it cost?
Nothing at all.
Attendance is free. It is, however, customary to bring refreshments and/or nibbles, but this is not a stipulation.
Donations towards new games will always be welcome.
Can I bring a game with me?
Absolutely, we’re always up for something different. Check out the games tabs at the top of the page for an idea of what we’re into and have at our disposal. We’re usually based at MC’s house so that’s the main pool of games used, though other players regularly bring choice games along.
There’s also a voting system in place which is supposed to give all players an idea what the game of the night is likely to be, and gives MC an opportunity to set it all up beforehand, if it’s one of his.
Bear in mind that midnight is the cutoff point for the event (even then it’s stretching it a bit), so games lasting longer than 4 hours will not be played.
Can I bring a friend with me?
It really depends on the evening. On quieter evenings, we’d welcome the extra player(s) happily. On busier evenings there may not be the room to fit them in – most games do have a player cap and there would be no guarantee they’d get to participate. There is also only so many people we can fit around the table.
How many games do you play in an evening?
Depends on the game. One, if it’s a long one or we start late. Otherwise 2-3 rounds of one game then 1-3 rounds of a filler game if there’s time. The evening usually ends any time from 10 onwards but has been as late as midnight (rarely). I do produce a write-up of each evening, so go check some of those out to get an idea of how an evening can ‘play out’.
Okay, I’m interested. How can I contact you?
Either write a comment here, email me at email@example.com or fill in this form:
How do I sign up for an event?
Once you’ve made your interest known, you’ll be added to the mailing list – with your permission. I send reminders on the Monday before the upcoming event. Places will be filled in order of responses received. Get your responses in early to avoid disappointment.
I wanted to attend an evening, but it looks like you were already full.
It’s true that interest in the group has grown recently and this will unfortunately be a factor for our members. However, if you were not able to attend one week, you get to be first in the line for the following week.
Anything else I should know?
Mainly the allergy notices:
1:- We have cats.
2:- Some nibbles may contain nuts, etc.
3:- Strictly no smoking. One member is very sensitive to tobacco smoke.
4:- There are usually plenty of free parking bays in the vicinity.
Again, feel free to post questions here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
