    Hi everyone.

    In Galway we have a group simple named Board Games club Galway and we meet in a hacker space called 091 Labs

    This is our board sub forum with links to our Facebook page.
    http://http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=83126446

    The Hacker space is the limbo between a home and a town space for playing board games.
    Since everything is casual and member run you don't have to worry about noise or jokes and all that.

    We meet every Friday at 7 to play and anyone is welcome to come along.

    Any groups in Waterford city? I used to play a bit of Risk and Monopoly with friends in college and I remember one attempt at Junta but not much since, I've always wanted to get more into it. Anything going on?


  • Registered Users Posts: 22 capt fantastic


    As far as I can tell no.
    Not that I am a Waterford local but I haven't heard of one.
    Looks like your going to have to start one up.

    If your interested You can PM me and ill tell how we went about starting ours up.
    If you do go down that route there is a group board games Ireland who are trying to promote events nationally.

    Hi folks,

    Would it be out of line to post here for a group I'm trying to get started north of the border?

    Cheers

    Just wondering if there's anyone in cork that plays pokemon tcg


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,123 ✭✭✭✭ Star Lord


    Looking either in Trading Card Games: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=436 or the Pokémon forum: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1309 would probably get you better results!

    Actually quite the opposite that's why I posted here… looking for a "Gaming Group"

    Hi,

    I'm Matt and I live in Lisburn. I'm trying to put together a group who would like to meet up every couple of Friday/Saturday nights for board gaming goodness.

    I'm thinking along the lines of Ticket to Ride, Catan, that kind of thing. Though I've just started listening to Dice Tower and am slowly building up a wishlist of games to play

    I'm more than happy to host and make a half decent cup of coffee, so if you'd be interested in this please let me know.

    Cheers
    Matt

    Hi Matt

    I'm from Galway myself but our group went down to Limerick for Knavecon.
    There we meet a group called the Wee gamers. They are a gamer group as well as community I think. I dunno if you are familiar with them or not but they are based in Carrickfergus I believe which shouldn't be far from you.

    Look for Wee Gamers on Facebook to find there Facebook page.

    This is there Facebook page.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks guys. I sort of lost interest in boards.ie but my love of board games is still strong hence setting up boardgamesireland.com and the meet up group. Oolong was a great spot, shame the group rapidly outgrew it and it just didn't have the space to accomadate us anymore. For those who don't know we currently meet up in Thomas Read's on Dame Street each Tuesday evening from 7pm. Always a big crowd of between 30-40 people and very easy to get in on an open game.

    Limerick seems to have all the best boardgame conventions though, so I'll be heading back down next month for BroCon: http://brocon.info/

    Have been a few times and it's always fun but it looks like it's going to be even more gaming focused this year. Also if you haven't had a donut from Dungeons and Donuts then you have yet to live!

    Living in glanmire cork and I have an interest in Eclipse and Nations mostly but am open to most boardgames. Currently sourcing Race for the Galaxy and would love to meet up with fellow gamers for a few games. Over 40 here but could host for a few people 2-3. Larger group wouldn't suit due to kids in the house. Am willing to travel but not too far. Let me know if your interested.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8 Athlone DnD


    Hello all I'm currently trying to set up a general table top group in the Athlone/Midlands area.
    I've posted more in the Westmeath subforum for those interested.
    Open for any and all games!

    Hi all,

    Just to update on the Listowel boardgaming folk, we're now to be found on facebook, if anyone is interested to join, look up ListowelBK or Listowel Board Knights (I forgot I can't post the link, but you should find it by searching that)

    We've been meeting regularly over the summer (every week or two) but may be reducing that to once a month over the winter. Follow us on facebook to keep in the loop :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,140 ✭✭✭ MarkHall


    An addition to the groups in the North
    We are a small club and a friendly bunch, so new members are always welcome!
    Bertha's Bar, Castlerock.
    It's free to come down, just buy a drink or two to keep the landlord happy. This needn't be alcohol, pop will do. :-)

    The club opens at 7pm but most people arrive at 7:30pm.

    Please ask to join our group for more info:

    Hey everyone! I'm living back out in Bray at the moment and am looking for some people to play some wargames with locally. I play a lot of Warmachine/Hordes, and if anyone's looking to play some of the Games Workshop skirmish games like Necromunda or Gorkamorka I'd definitely be interested.

    Hey Siskey, I'm trying to get into a bit of weekend gaming if you're still looking for people. I actually haven't played it but I've always wanted to try Necromunda. Living in Sandymount at the moment.

    I'm only after seeing this post now. I'm based in Athenry and would be interested in helping to set up a boardgaming group in or around the village. For a variety of reasons, I find it difficult to get to the gaming groups in Galway.

    PM me is you're still looking for players.
