Welcome to the Charlottesville Gaming Group!

This group is intended to be a meeting place for anybody in the Charlottesville-Staunton-Harrisonburg area who enjoys card games, board games, miniatures games, roleplaying games, or war games.  Everybody is welcome.

Would you like to meet a group of friendly local gamers at a public venue?

We currently have 2 weekly board game meetings in Charlottesville, on Thursday and Saturday nights, and one game meeting every other Saturday in Lake Monticello in Palmyra, VA (about a 25 minute drive from Charlottesville).  We play a wide variety of games, and we are willing to teach new players.  Sometimes members will mention in the event's comments which games they're bringing. Attending one of these three meetings is a great way to get connected into the group and start meeting other gamers.

Thursdays @ 5:30 PM - Beer and Board Games @ West Main Restaurant (333 West Main Street, Charlottesville)

Saturdays from 5-10 PM - Saturday Game Night @ Rail Tales (705c Dale Avenue, Charlottesville)

Every other Saturday from 6-10 PM - Lake Monticello Board Game Club (Lake Monticello Clubhouse, downstairs)

Own a game and looking for players?

Hit "Suggest a Meetup" on the main group page to start a meetup, or hit the discussion button and start a discussion, or just bring the game to one of the 2 regular weekly meetings.

Want to play a game you don't own?

Go to "Discussion" and choose the discussion titled "Game Collections."  Browse different members' game collections, and if you see a game you'd like to try, message the owner to see if he/she will post a meetup for the game or bring it to one of the 2 regular weekly meetings.  You can click on any game in the game lists and it will take you to a site with reviews, pictures, and more information about the game.  You can also start a new discussion on the discussion board.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the group organizer, by clicking the contact button on the left side of the main group screen (about halfway down, right underneath the picture of a person).

Happy gaming!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
