Boardgames meetup (Monday edition @ Toby's)

Welcome to the Toby's edition of Monday night board games! They're located extremely close to the Commercial skytrain station, and we've booked the whole second floor! So come out, meet some amazing people and play some cool games. You don't need to be a board game veteran. Most people who come are fairly new to the world of board gaming, so you won't be alone.

Things start rolling at about 5:00 although you're welcome to come any time after that. We're usually there until about 10:00.

Bring your games (or don't) and lets have a great time!

(Toby's is where the little toon turtle, Tommy, is hangin' out)

Frequently asked questions

Question: I don't get off work until 6:00 and won't be able to get there until about 7, is that ok?
Answer: Yes of course. Most people usually don't start arriving until about 6, and plenty of people don't arrive until after 7 as well.

Question: Do I have to bring my own games?
Answer: Nope! You should bring any games if you can, but there are usually enough other people who bring games that there are more than enough to go around.

Question: What type of games do you play?
Answer: Check out the link at the bottom of this page. But we play a pretty wide variety of games. Some short and simple, some long and complicated.

Question: Where is there nearby parking?
Answer: There is parking underground Toby's (free) and also street parking on the east side of 10th if you drive down a bit

    I wish I could come on this last part of the long week end but I have to spend time and take care of my nephew he can't go to a pub because he is 13 and my family will not allow him go play board game a pub.

    Sorry about that.

    Have a good one.

    At request I'll be teaching Magic, the trading card game. I'm also open to 1v1s and team games with experienced players. I guess I can also make it more interesting: I'll buy a drink for anyone who beats me in a best of three or plays four games with me.

      I'm with Tammy on this. I'd prefer to see the games mix on Monday's kept light, casual and free.

      Ya, I agree. The best setting for Mtg and games like it would be through a meetup group like the one I outlined above.

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.
