Girls-Only Regular Game Nights

This is a regularly schedule meetup within the Calgary Tabletop Gaming Meetup Group for women gamers of all levels (beginners especially welcome)! If you've been curious about non-traditional board games, (also called Euros), or simply want to meet new people, join us!

I have always been a big fan of some kind of gaming (cards, board games, video games, etc.). In recent years, as I've become more involved in the Calgary gaming Community (FallCon specifically), I have occasionally found myself counting people at events to figure out the girl:guy ratio. I don’t keep statistics (but one doesn't need to) to know that this is generally a guy dominated hobby. Gaming with guys is great, but I've wanted to start a female gaming group for a little while and when I started hearing about other girls being interested, I decided that the time was right to get this going!

I will host at my house and I am focused on providing a non-judgemental social environment to bring girls together for gaming and friendship.

 

Featured Game: Free for All! we'll figure it out as we go!

    I'm glad you could all make it out; I was very happy to see so many new faces! Looking forward to gaming with you again (either here again or at another meetup event)

    Babs, would there be any interest in my wooden Catan?

      I'm not in a Catan mood. I'm hoping to maybe get legendary out. Up to you if you want to bring it.

    Hi there! Totally unfamiliar with this group/event. Are we bringing food and/or drink?

    November 20, 2013

    • Nathalie (.

      Hi Carla! Welcome!! You can certainly bring snacks I sometimes have crackers and/or dip to snack on - the only beverage I usually have readily available is water - so if you like pop or juice, you can bring yourself a bottle if you'd like. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

    Hello! I'm new to the whole board game meetup scene -- I've been to a couple outings so far in Brentwood and have heard of this particular meetup from someone else and have been anxiously waiting to see when the next one would be :-) I have several different games of my own that I would be more than happy to bring if anyone is interested and am more than happy trying out anything new that is going to be played. How does it normally work? Are their groups of games going on? Or one game that's decided in advance that will be played?

    Looking forward to it :-) !

      oops. I didn't meant o post it right away. you can see what games I have over here: http://www.boardgameg...­ feel free to bring anything you'd like to play (but by checking what I already have may save you from lugging a few boxes) :)

      Awesome :) ! That list helped me a lot in understanding what kind of games you like. I know several titles under that list (a lot still new to me as well). I think I'll bring just a couple simple games that fall under categories I'm really confident you'll like. If we play them or not *shrug*. Better to bring them and be safe in case anyone wants to try 'em out.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
