About Board Games Clubs

 

Mad Hatter Board Games operates in Cambridge, UK, so we thought it would be a good idea to list the board game events that you can attend in Cambridge and surrounding area. Some of these events / clubs are "just turn up", others are run from peoples houses so you will need to ask the organisers if it's okay for you to attend. Madhatterboardgames are happy to forward your request to attend a games event, just ask us.

Club Types...

Invite Only: Some games sessions are held in peoples homes and the space is limited, so these are invite only. However please ask if you wish to attend and we can ask the host.

Booking: These games sessions are held in public buildings, so anyone can book these sessions by either contacting the organiser or via a facebook club page etc.

 

Just turn up: These games sessions are held in public buildings and you do not need to notify anyone, so just go along.
