The Chelmsford Games Club

If you live or work in or near Chelmsford, Essex, England and play board games (of all sorts, modern European and American or other "gamer's games" in particular) then we'd like to see you at

The Chelmsford Games Club

EVERY Tuesday

The Queen's Head

Lower Anchor Street


Start at 7:00 p.m. (though we try to handle people arriving a bit later). Finish at Closing Time

If you are expecting to be after 7:00, best is to let us know in advance.


A map of where to find us can be found here. (Use the features of the site to move around or zoom in or out.)

Just turn up; bring some games if you've got anything you particularly want to play. If not, there will be other people with games there.

Sometimes (although we are between projects right now) we do more than just play published games. And we have some recognition! From the credits of Ra the Dice Game:

Reiner Knizia would like to express his gratitude to Jonty Blackwell, Chris Dearlove and Lee Edwards for their significant contributions to the development of this game. Many thanks to all playtesters, in particular Kevin Jacklin, Paul Smith, Graeme Tate and the Chelmsford Games Club.

We also have a sixth one day event, a joint venture of the Sorcon Society and the Chelmsford Games Club with support from the Essex Warriors:
