This is a long-standing games group that welcomes new attenders. We play lots of Euro games and other strategy-based board games, such as Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Empire Builder, Puerto Rico, Princes of Florence, a couple of "train games," and also occasionally word games. Bring any games you would like to play/learn/try; we decide as we go along what to play and usually break into smaller groups. People are not fiercely competitive, will teach you games, and will even help you out during play if you want.
We meet every 3rd Saturday, at private homes in Springfield, Fairfax, and the Franconia area (alternates depending on the month). Snacks are always welcome but are not required. We usually order pizza around 6:00 or have other foods, depending on the location.
