Welcome to the home of board, card and war gamers in Herefordshire. Our aim is to promote and support the fun hobby that is playing with your friends (games that is!). . We aim to give back where we can raising money for charity, supporting communities, charities and local businesses. We aim to provide a fun, safe, cheap community both in person and online.
Herefordshire Board Gamers are a family-friendly group of like minded individuals, dedicated to bringing the joys and social experience of board gaming to any and all who pass through our doors. We welcome gamers of all ages, backgrounds, experience-levels and mindsets into the fold, and are always more than happy to assist in whatever ways we can in order to get you playing and enjoying a relaxed and pleasant time.
Why not join us and give it a try? There are no hidden costs or requirements; just come along, pick a game, and have a fun time.
