Board game larks.
Drop in and join us on the first Sunday of the month from 2pm 'til 5pm in Birmingham city centre. Find us at both:


Our main home is on Facebook. Here you'll find reminders of our upcoming events. If there's anything in particular that you'd like to play, then pipe up there and someone will bring it along.

We're on Twitter, and the more fanantical board gamer can also find us on BoardGameGeek.

We’re going to make the most of the summer by having another picnic.  Join us on Sunday 17th August for a lazy afternoon in Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston.

We’ll play whatever outdoor-friendly games people bring along.  On previous occasions we’ve had croquet, Boules, French cricket, Kubb, Lemon Jousting, and a ride on the pedalos.

Bring snacks and drinks, or visit the nearby café for an ice cream.

We’ll meet on the grass near the Garden Tea Rooms.

In the event of rain, we’ll retreat to the MAC café for indoor gaming.

Let us know on Facebook that you’re coming.

Afternoon Play is a monthly casual board game meet up. Newcomers are most welcome. Drop by and join in, or feel free to bring bring board games, card games, dice games, or anything else you think you could play in a café.

There’s too many of us to squeeze into one place, so you can find us both upstairs at Urban Coffee (on the corner of Church Street/Edmund Street), and downstairs at Coffee Lounge (on the corner of Navigation Street/Stephenson Street).  It’s free, and we’ll be there from 2pm until 5pm.  Afterwards, some of us will go to the pub.

A few people have complained that they don’t always see the events on here because they haven’t been invited. A little while ago the powers that be on Facebook changed the way we could invite people, and we can no longer do so from pages, only from personal profiles so we’re trailing a work-around - 

Meet Arthur T’Noonplay https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100006637757659 - if you friend him/her you should then get an invite to every afternoon play activity that we do. Hopefully, until Facebook change the rules again….

Or you can just join then event as usually - Here’s the details for #46 on the 3rd of August - https://www.facebook.com/events/1471219896455849/

We’re having a picnic next weekend, but after that the next Afternoon Play proper will be on Sunday 6th July.
