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.

Advance notice that our next all dayer is Sat May 16th in Belper and in Derby on Sat July 11th. I need to put up our Sat accounts details. See some of you round the table soon. Game on. ...
