Eurogames at the Royal Standard

Come one, come all!

Join a broad mix of friendly folk for a spot of socializing and strategizing with some of the best modern strategy board games around. Enjoy a meal and a relaxing beverage. There are no fees! And beginners are very welcome.

Eurogames at the Royal Standard welcomes anyone who wants to have good fun with good people and good board games.

We are open to all sorts of strategy games, but focus particularly on European-style designer games—Eurogames.

So, you won't see Risk, Monopoly, Scrabble or Hungry Hungry Hippos. But, you will find The Settlers of Catan, Agricola, Carcassonne, Dominion, Puerto Rico, Power Grid, and much, much more.

Never heard of 'em? No problem! Our friendly local gamer geeks are happy to teach and make newcomers feel very welcome. We love our strategy games but we're not too hardcore.

Bring along your favourite game or join a table and learn a new one.

'The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.' — G. K. Chesterton

What are these Eurogames we play?

Eurogames are board games that emphasize strategy, play down luck, often lean towards economic and historical rather than military themes, and usually wrap up in about an hour or two. A hallmark of these games is that you don't need to eliminate the other players to win and you get to do interesting stuff even when it's not your turn.

You name it, it has been made into a board game!

You might find yourself in a fast-paced auction bidding for stocks in an American railway company, building a power grid across China, forging a galactic empire, attracting great thinkers to your palace in Renaissance Italy, ploughing a field in 17th century Germany, hammering out a trade deal as you settle the island of Catan, saving the world from global warming, defending your dynasty in ancient Mesopotamia, running a Japanese sushi bar, co-operating to manage a deadly pandemic, rigging elections in revolutionary France, setting up a wine business in Portugal... and so much more!!!

I don’t have any Eurogames, can I still play?

Of course! There are always plenty of games to play! Space and time, however, are finite, so it's best to get in on time so you can settle into a game.

We also heartily encourage you to bring your own games along. The more who share, the less wear and tear.

Games you won't see.

We sometimes play a lightish wargame, 'Ameritrash', or something with zombies in it, but please—no party games, Monopoly, Jenga, Risk, Cranium, Scrabble, Hungry Hungry Hippos, or the like. Sorry all you Level 17 elves, we don't do role-playing games either.

Where do I find out more about modern board games?

    Bringing The Agents since Ben wants to try it out before the 2nd Kickstarter ends tomorrow. Could also bring Tokaido, or Rampage if people think we'll have space, or anything else I've brought previously.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
