A Board Game and RPG Group

Games For All The Family

Wednesday 27th November


In the 15th and 16th century, Portugal is thriving under its leading role during the Age of Discovery. Nestled in the heart of Portugal, the city of Coimbra serves as a cultural center of the country. As the head of one of Coimbra’s oldest houses, you seek to earn prestige by deepening relationships with nearby monasteries or funding expeditions of the era. To reach this goal, you must vie for the favors of the city’s most influential citizens, even if you must offer a bit of coin or some protective detail.


Coimbra introduces an innovative new dice mechanism in which the dice players draft each round are used in multiple different ways and have an impact on many aspects of their decision making. While there are many paths to victory, players should always seek to optimize their opportunities with every roll of the dice. Combined with ever-changing synergies of the citizens, expeditions, and monasteries, no two games of Coimbra will ever be the same!   (BGG)

The Games Table

Games Night

Next Meeting - Wednesday 23rd October
Wednesday nights are when we have our regular, main meeting.
Numbers vary depending on availability, but we usually have enough gamers to play one or two games, and we invite those attending to offer suggestions about what to play.

Games Library

David has a collection of more than 250 board games which are available for use on games night, and he is very happy to lend them out to gamers who would like to borrow one or more.
This is a good way to find out if you like a game before committing to buying it for yourself.

You can see details of David's collection here:

Games Days

Our last Games Day Special was on Saturday 7th September, when we played the interactive, cooperative game - UBOOT.
Watch out for news of other Games Days.

Dungeons & Dragons

A handful of our gamers have some RPG experience, or an interest in playing RPG's so David has taken on the role of Dungeon Master.There has been one short adventure evening and now he is preparing a new campaign using D&D 5e. We have a fantastic digital table and miniatures and use D&D Beyond to facilitate play.


We are very fortunate in having in Cambridge one of the largest board game outlets in the region.
Our Local Friendly Games Store, Heffers Bookstore, stocks a very large selection of games of all varieties and themes and is well worth a visit if you are looking for something new.
