DU Gamers

Dublin University Boardgames Society is probably the oldest of the Games Socs. It is the society in Trinity College and is responsible for all sorts of gaming, CCGs, RPGs, LARPs and occasionally other games. Mostly they hang out on Facebook these days, when not meeting in person. DU Gamers run what is most likely Ireland's first (and oldest) Gaming convention, Leprecon, every year, the website of which is http://leprecon.ie

DU Gamers was known for many years as DUBGS - Dublin University Boardgame Society. Even during those years, the society included role players, figure gamers and wargamers as well as boardgamers.

The society committee can be contacted at gamers@csc.tcd.ie

Location

Gamers is located in Goldsmith Hall in TCD, on the Corner of Pearse Street and Westland Row. The Room is Arches 2A, though it is best to follow the signs. Several years ago Trinity moved the Sci-Fi society into the same room, so there's currently a timeshare operation going on.

  • A quick guide to getting there, as the signage is rather confusing:
  • Enter Goldsmith Hall through the main doors.
  • Turn left and head through the double doors ahead of you. You will be in a corridor.
  • Take the first right through double doors, and you will be in an enclosed storage area.
  • Head right, then through the door on the left in the room you reach (with DU Gamers sign).
  • As you enter, turn right, then take the first left (through a door, again with sign).
  • Go through the door on the left, again with signage.
  • This is DU Gamers.

Gamers is open (as Gamers) several days in the week, especially Tuesday evenings (mostly card games) and Wednesday from 13.00 to 22.00, which is the weekly boardgames night.
