    I figure this might be handy.

    Are you a lone gamer looking for a group? Are you part of a gamer group open to new players? Lob some information in here and if anyone feels like inviting you along or looking to join they can send you a PM

    We have a pretty irregular group in Killarney, we generally play a couple of times a month, and we are always up for someone new joining in.

    I'm the one in the group who owns all the games, and my collection is here. The current game of the moment is Eclipse, but really, we will play whatever there is interest in. Demographically, we range from mid 20s to mid 30s and there are smokers / drinkers in the group, so it's unlikely to be suitable to under 18s. Mostly male, but ocasionally we can con a girlfriend or two into joining in :pac:

    This is a really good idea, I live in Naas in Kildare and I am on the look out for a group to game with, I would go to Dublin if necessary. Interested in any table top games but at the moment playing Arkham Horror, Last Night on Earth, Settlers, Mage Knight, Ghost Stories, Gloom, pretty much anything. Would love to join a group.

    Hey I live in stillorgan. I never played before but very interested to see how it goes. Always fascinated by different boardgames but my friends are nerds in other departments. Want to see if there are groups nearby, just eager to see how people play and learn.

    When I was in Athlone I played with a group weekly (almost every Sunday night) and sometimes twice weekly. Moved to Dublin last year and now playing board games not as often as I like. I'd love to join in on any groups around Dublin. My list of board games:

    - Settlers of Catan
    - Carcassone
    - The Resistance
    - Puerto Rico
    - Monopoly
    - Scrabble
    - Village
    - Civilization
    - Risk Legacy
    - Ticket to Ride: Europe

    I live in Dublin and would be interested. Have a few friends who already play with but I work shifts so it means it can be difficult enough to find enough people to play at particular time. The list below is what I own but have played the more common games and always willing to learn more
    Ticket to Ride
    Niagara
    Metal Gear Solid Risk
    Arkham Horror (Currently unplayed)
    PowerGrid (Currently unplayed)

    Also a fan of card games like Munchkin, Gloom etc

    Hi All,

    This thread stated up while I was away and this is my first time to see it.

    I am a member of South Dublin Boardgamers and we are always happy to welcome new/experienced gamers.
    I have posted a few times over the past few months about games/sessions we have had and which you might find of interest

    We can be found here http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/SouthDublinBoardgamers/

    if it is of any interest I am proposing to host next Tuesday night and if any you want to come along please message me and I fill you in on the details.

    Jim

    We've been having the odd monthly gaming night in Drogheda should there be anyone interested in joining in. This is a strictly over 18s (even older ideally we're all 30+, old farts) since the events always require alcohol.

    We're talking Descent, Gloom, Smallworld, Mansion of Madness, Tannhauser, Muchin Quest and a few others.

    Alternatively if there are any existing groups in Drogheda who have an open slot I'd be interested.

    On a side note we should get this thread stickied.

    moved to dublin (blanchardstown) from limerick on work experience! Lonely as heck! this definitely interests me!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,587 ✭✭✭ yankinlk


    Limerick is a gaming stronghold... Theres a group meetup next weekend as well, search for bastardcon lite on FB and u will find details. Several regular weekly groups meeting up there all day saturday.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,346 ✭✭✭ Rev Hellfire


    Anyone interested in joining us on the 25th in Drogehda for a few games and beers? We're old farts but if its your thing give me a PM.

    Normally do it every month or so, but would be interested in doing it more regularly if there are other folks in that neck of the woods interested.

    New to Dublin, so have applied to the group in Leixlip (though it seems very much based in Leixlip) and a Meetup.com group...Very new to Tabletop gaming in general, but I've enjoyed the few I've played so far (mainly for the social element). If there's anyone up for a game, give a shout :)

    🤪

    yeah i did too but that's too far out, so never go! :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,499 ✭✭✭ Sabre0001


    Would there be any interest in getting a regular group going in Dublin? I'd be up for it but don't think I can host (oddball housemates).

    🤪



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 60,007 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Tar.Aldarion


    Yeah their problem is a host, nobody to host, my apartment isnt suitable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 Rzeznik


    Hi Rev Hellfire, you still have a group in Drogheda?
    I would be interested to join given you won't laugh too much at my Polish accent ;-)
    Live in Balbriggan, so just 20 min away. Have some pen&paper and boardgames experience so not a newbie.

    "It's not me" It's always you king of spies!

    Thanks for the jam doughnut muffins too, awesome :D

    Here is that game I thought looked sweet, did not have 100$ to pick it up. Out in october anyway

    Wish I'd got it in the kickstarter though because of all the extra stuff they get, that was some amount of stretch goals that were reached. Glow in the dark zombies dammit.

    Hey guys,

    Great to see that your games night went well!

    Meanwhile, down in Kerry...we've been starting a boardgames night of a Monday evening in the Saddle Bar in Listowel. We've been going for about a month now and our numbers are growing.

    On again this coming Monday (29/07) at 8pm so if anybody is in the surrounding area we'd be delighted to see you there.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,346 ✭✭✭ Rev Hellfire


    For those interested I'm having another session at the end of the month 31st.

    I'll pop along to this at some stage if I get a chance, it'll probably be 3 or 4 weeks though, Listowel is about an hour away and I only finish in the gym at like 7.30 :(
    Hi are you still running the night in the Saddle, I'm from Tralee so i can try and come out some night.

    Hi Oeb and Jiggly_Anon,

    Sorry for taking so so long to get back to you, I've been mad busy moving house and I didn't see your replies until now.

    Yup, the boardgames is still ongoing in the Saddle, although there is talk of relocating in the next few weeks, but I'll keep you posted.

    Next session is still in the Saddle, tonight at 8pm, although I'll be working so I won't be there myself.

    By the way, Oeb, there's no problem if you turn up late, don't worry.

    Hi, I'm also involved with the boardgames meetups in Listowel, sorry for the delay in posting, but we'll be meeting in the Listowel Arms tonight at eight if you're interested to come along :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 10 Jadytte


    Aaaand the next board games evening in Listowel will be in the Arms again, but next Wednesday, 11th September (8pm). A little more notice this time ;)

    You can post up or PM if you're interested, or simply show up on the night (ask/look around, we'll be the ones with the board games :D )


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 17,099 Mod ✭✭✭✭ cherryghost


    Many thanks for Rev Hellfire, he's created a meetup page for us!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,346 ✭✭✭ Rev Hellfire


    I'm going to move the posts connected to arranging dates from this thread and keep it solely for announcing groups. Otherwise its usefulness is rapidly removed in the weight of posts.

    Hello everybody! I'm currently living in Castletroy, Limerick and I was wondering if I could join any games group. My experience is not that broad, but I love board games and rpgs. I've played Settlers, Zauberer, Game of Thrones, Descent, Vampire TES and Cthulhu, among others. I used to play GW, and LoL for a while too. I'm really loooking forward to join any game you're in, because it's been a while since the last time I got the chance for it.

    Anyone in the area I could join? Thanks!

    Hi AiwenElen,

    we're a small-ish group that generally meet every second Wednesday in Listowel Arms Hotel, but that's possibly a bit far out for you? (Thought I'd let you know though, it is closer than the Dublin groups after all ;) ).

    We haven't any RPG games at the mo, but that's not to say we won't be getting any/ if you had any yourself you could bring along :) We've games like Dixit, Quirkle, Carcassone, Monopoly Deal, Uno, Rummikub...

    If you're interested, just let me know and I'll keep you posted about when we're meeting (next one is tomorrow evening, 20th Nov, at 8; all welcome!).
