subscribe by email – get reminders

Hello and welcome to Beyond Monopoly! We are a boardgames club in York who meet regularly for fun boardgaming times. We play all modern boardgames- Euros, Social deducation, co-op, American; and if that means nothing to you, then come along and discover the exciting (genuinely) world of modern boardgames. We meet in the Bar Convent on the first and third Saturday of the month, from 10am until 9pm, and on the second and fourth Friday evening of the month, from 5pm until 9pm. If you can’t remember that then please sign up for regular reminders and updates! Absolutely everyone is welcome, and with our numbers attending you’re usually never waiting long for a game. First visit is free (wow!). Given we’re in the Bar Convent we do ask that people don’t bring in outside food and drink- instead drinks are provided, and the cafe does fantastic food (and we get 10% off).

If you want regular email reminders of club meetings, put your email address in the subscription box on the right and click on Sign Me Up! You’ll get a confirmation email. Follow the instructions in that to confirm your sub. After that, you’ll get an email when we post an item on this blog. That includes the reminders which go on the blog.

Thank you! (now scroll down for the rest of the blog…)


Spring is almost here!

Come down tomorrow to the Bar Convent 10am-9pm and help us chase away the last of winter and cross our fingers for some better weather. Come down for a day of some good silly fun and feel free to bring along some new recruits for their free first visit to the madhouse.

Airecon! The final countdown

Congratulations everyone for surviving storm Emma, now it is almost time for our next adventure, Airecon 2018. Yorkshires premier boardgaming festival is taking place a quick train ride away in Harrogate this weekend and several BM veterans will be there enjoying the fun and tickets are still available. If however you are not indulging in the big show or if you simply must get all the gaming in you can (we approve) then we at BM will also be having our typical Friday meet at the Bar Convent from 5-9pm. Whatever your plans this weekend, have fun and game on.

Meet this Saturday and price changes

We’re looking forward to seeing regulars and new faces alike at the Bar Convent this Saturday 10am-9pm for some fun with our wonderful games library and our even more wonderful members.

During our AGM last week, it was decided to alter prices. The new prices are:

  • Saturday £5, £3 concessions
  • Saturday after 5pm £3, £2 concessions
  • Friday £3, £2 concessions

Finally, we are now less than one month away from Airecon weekend in Harrogate 9th-11th March!

Game of the week: Terraforming Mars (2016)….


An economic centred game with a mixed bag of mechanics and plays up to 5, and you can even honour Han and do it solo if everyone has gone off to lunch.

AGM on Wednesday and meet this Friday

Hi everybody, important information- we have our AGM this Wednesday on the Bar Convent at 7:30. Please as many people as possible come along, we have decisions to make and need volunteers for roles. Come along and have your say!

We also have a regular meet this Friday, 5pm until 9pm at the Bar Convent, everyone welcome, come along and play some games!

Finally, apologies for the car park work on Saturday! I didn’t know about it, but I’ll endeavour to keep people updated if anything like that happens again. Hope it didn’t inconvenience people too much.

See you on Wednesday!
