Frequently asked questions

Where can I park?

The cricket pavilions have their own free parking. You can locate this on our map here.

How much does it cost to attend?

To cover the cost of the venues in Cambourne we ask that players contribute £3 per session.

Your first session is free however so if you’re new you won’t need to pay.

Do I need to book?

No booking is required. If you do plan on attending you can optionally RSVP on the Facebook event so we have a rough idea of numbers.

Can I bring my kids?

Whilst our group and the games we play are mostly geared towards adults, you can bring well-behaved children if you want to.

All minors must be supervised by a responsible adult.

Does the club have any of its own games?

The club itself does not own any games, however, the organisers and regulars often bring a selection of games to play. You can bring any of your own too!

If I turn up late will I still get a game?

Usually we play games of differing lengths in various group sizes depending on how many people attend, so it’s likely you’ll get to play.

If we know people will be late we will usually start with some short games, so be sure to RSVP or send a message if you’re definitely coming and we’ll do our best!

Do I need to arrange games in advance?

This is not required, but it can be a good idea to do this if you have a specific preference, or if you want to play something long/complex so others have a chance to read up on the rules and so there is time to play on the night. You can do this type of planning via our Facebook group.

What if I don’t live in Cambourne?

The group is open to anyone willing to travel. We have several regulars who travel from neighbouring villages.

What do I need to bring?

Yourselves!

You can optionally bring some games of your own if you want to suggest playing them on the night, and you can also bring your own drinks and snacks if you want.

You may also want to bring some money in case you want to purchase snacks from the co-op next door.

How do you decide what games to play?

If nothing has been pre-arranged, we’ll usually make some suggestions based on what has been brought and the group size at the start of the night.

Do you play bridge/miniature war games/chess/collectible card games etc?

We tend to play board and card games only, however you can ask in the Facebook group or make a suggestion if there is something you’re keen on to see if others would be interested.

If you are looking for miniature war games, there are a couple of wargaming clubs in Cambridge which might give you better results (Sons of War and 2d6).

If you’re into D&D there is a group in Papworth.
