The home of playing board games in Derby! DoBG meets in a range of venues with a huge range of games for people to access.

We are a family-friendly group – everyone is welcome regardless of age, gaming knowledge and skill level; bring your favourite games, or none at all and join in the fun!

Just turn up!

Thinking of coming along to an event? There’s no need to book or reserve a place, just turn up! You don’t need to bring anything, but if you’ve a favourite game you’d like to play, pop it in your bag! If you’d like to let us know you’re coming, head over to the Facebook page and drop us a line.

Who can come?

We’re a family friendly bunch and everyone is welcome whatever your age or level of skill. Our Last Wednesday events are at the more family friendly time of 4pm, and the organisers tend to bring extra games with more child friendly themes and mechanics.

Reminder we are online every Monday night from 7:30pm. Very helpful if you can be there by 7:40pm as we can agree the game we are going to play. Sad news but not surprising that Midcon has been cancelled for 2020. This follows on from the really sad news that Spirit Games are closing the shop on Nov 14th. If you have never been you only have a few weeks to know what the fuss was about. Their sales games are now half price but in the shop. I bought Farmers expansion for KeyFlower for £10 on Saturday. Bargain. Spirit will still operate on line and you can still go and pick up your games to save postage and say hi to them at the lock up. ... See MoreSee Less
