We are board game lovers

We are 6 board game lovers who want to increase access to, and enjoyment of, board games. Watch this space to find out more about us and our top recommendations from our collection. 

If you’re interested in volunteering with Edinburgh Board Game Library, we’d love to hear from you: please get in touch. 

If you have board games you no longer use, why not donate them?

Our mission

Normal libraries lend out books. Tool libraries lend out tools. Why not a board game library?  

Board games are a fantastic way to spend time with friends and family, but the cost of board games can be prohibitive, especially when you don’t know if you’re going to enjoy that specific game.

Edinburgh Board Game Library allows members to borrow board games to take and try at home for a small annual fee.  

Through this model, we hope to:  

 Increase access to board games regardless of income
 Introduce board games to new audiences
 Allow people to try board games before they decide to buy them
 Normalise sharing as a step towards a circular economy
