Cafe Meeple



Watch this space for the next event

Session Times: 3pm to 7pm

What is a board game café?
Like a café we serve drinks, cakes and snacks. But it’s not just a normal café, we’re all about board games. It is a place for you to come and play new games, meet new peo-ple.

How does it work?
You simply pay a cover charge for the session, and then you’re free to play as many games as you want. Just pick a game off the shelf in our board game li-brary, take it to your table and enjoy!
Cover Charges: £3.50 Adults, £2.50 Scouts/Explorers/Children

Need help?
We can help describe the game-play, get the game set up and answer rules questions. We are also on hand to adjudicate should you need it.

What is it for?
Funds raised at this event will go to the 30th Reigate Scout Group and our World Scout Jamboree Participants.

What sort of games do you have?
We have over 100 games including many popular modern board games. Some of our favourites are Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan. We have some games suitable for younger ages, but mostly for 10+. (For a sneak peak at the kind of games we have look at the image below).

Food and Drinks
We will be selling hot & cold drinks and snacks. At 5pm we will be sell-ing hot bacon rolls.

Here you can find out more about the latest event and possibly about the next one.

30 Logo OldThe 30th Reigate Scout Group was founded in 1925, the official registration date with Headquarters is 21st August. Initially founded by William C Davis, and meeting in a disused stable block at Hartinton House, the troop consisted of six boys from Reigate Grammar School. By the early thirties, the troop had swollen in number to nearly 50 including a cub pack.

In the mid thirties, the group's HQ moved from a series of temporary homes to a new (second hand) hut erected behind the old police station (now Upper West Street car park).

In 1951, the group moved into it's present HQ, then the "Reigate Youth's Institute" and renamed it to Somers Hall.

The group's early heydays were the sixties and seventies when numbers swelled up to over 150 youth members.

Numbers dropped in the eighties and nineties in line with the popularity of scouting.

At the start of a new centenary of scouting numbers have dramatically increased and with a Beaver Colony, a large Cub Pack, two bulging Scout Troops and an Explorer unit. Numbers are larger today than they have been in the group's history.
