Board Games Society


Bored of playing with your smartphone / computer games?
Thanks to recent advancements in cardboard technology, you now have an alternative: board games! Join the SUSSEX BOARD GAME SOCIETY!

The Board Game Society organises regular gatherings for our members to learn to play different kinds of board games (types of board games may vary in different countries), to improve one’s strategic thinking and to meet new friends.

There is sometimes a lot of shouting. Plenty of lying, enough betrayal to go around.
Occasionally we play Monopoly because we're masochists that way. It is invariably great fun.

We encourage our members to bring their own board games and share their experiences with others. 

We meet every Friday evening from 18:00 to 22:00, in the Meeting Room 4 above the Student Union Shop - use the staircases on the side!

In the meantime, the society plans to have sponsorship agreements with companies/ organisations that are willing to provide board games for free or at a lower cost throughout the year.


The society currently has the following board games:

  • Articulate
  • Blokus
  • Chinese Chess
  • Chinese Checkers
  • Cluedo
  • Code Names
  • Escape: Curse of the Temple
  • Go
