London Board Games Club

Board games club in West London

About the club

Updated August 2016. We are a small, active, face-to-face club of board game enthusiasts who meet in Uxbridge in West London.  We have been going for over 15 years.  We play a huge variety of games, often whatever is the newest, or else someone's old favourite, or just what someone brings along. 

Examples include Dominion, Settlers, Kingdom Builder, Village, Imperial, Lords Of Deepwater, King Of Tokyo, Condottiere, Railroad Tycoon, Werewolf, Colossal Arena,  I'm The Boss, Drakon, Billabong, Bang!, Antike, Perikles, Pirates Of Nassau, Apocalypse. 

RoboRally (our own club Team-version) is played fairly often (about once every third session).  But it is about the only one we keep a "league" on, and publish the league here on the site; so this site accidentally looks more RoboRally-heavy than the club really is.

We meet mainly on Sundays, sometimes weekday eves, by mailed-out invitation. There are no fees.  The venue is my spacious house (4 or 5 tables) in Uxbridge, at the end of the Metropolitan and Piccadilly tube lines. 

You have to email me at bobroscow followed by @ and if you wish to get on the invitation list, telling us a little about yourself and your gaming preferences,  If you only click apply on here, you'll get lost in the spam.

You can't join the site if you haven't attended the club, sorry.  We don't tend to play collectable card games, RPG's or online games, at least not at the club.

Unfortunately, Ning have decided they only want very large communities here, and have increased the minimum price from $20 per year to $588 per year. That means we need to find a new home for our…Continue

Doubloon is a word-puzzle if you play it solo, a word-game if you play it in parallel with one or more others and see who ends up solving it in the shortest number of steps.  It typically takes only 10-30 minutes to actually play, though you can also play each other by…


APOCALYPSE NEMESIS the LBGC version and setup

Posted by Bob Roscow - LBGC Founder on March 20, 2015 at 22:30 0 Comments

"Apocalypse" was a great game invented by a Mike Hayes in 1980 or so, and published around then by Games Workshop.  Dunno if still available.

It had/has some brilliant combat-mechanics:

1)  You never roll dice!  You pick what number you want to have rolled, secretly (and within limits), and the defender has to guess what number you picked on your die.  If he's wrong, he loses a defender; if he's right, you lose that many armies.  There is,…

FULL  RULES   - as at 6 June 2014


This team game is more of a battle than a race!  It is a rare (?) example of a team board game, 3 humans vs 3 humans, with each player controlling 1 robot and tending to take on a different task for the sake of the team.  You can play it 2 vs 2 (or even 4…
