Reading Indie Gamers


Reading Indie Gamers is an inclusive gaming club dedicated to independently published and lesser known analogue games.

In the interest of being a fun environment for everyone, please read and uphold our Code of Conduct while participating in club activities, online and in person.

What Is An Analogue Game?

Analogue games are those played sat around a table using physical items, as distinct from video games. They tend to fall under the broad headings of Roleplaying Games, Board Games, Card Games, and Wargames; though these categories can often blend together.

What Is An Indie Game?

For our purposes, we're taking a generous definition of “Indie”.

In particular, what is considered “Indie” can vary significantly between different genres of analogue game, and is generally easiest to define by what it isn't rather than what it is. There is no hard and fast rule for determining if something is sufficiently indie, but as long as it's not a game with a monopoly in its genre and one that is not heavily embedded into the cultural zeitgeist it's almost certainly welcome!

Join The Discord

All of our events and activities are planned and organised through discord, so while we have a presence on other social platforms, if you want to participate then you'll need to find your way there!

Our Discord is open to any of the following:

We focus primarily on in person events, and so if you aren't from Reading or nearby, there's little reason for you to join!
