This group is a group for those that are interested in board or card games of all types and varieties. All are welcome; no previous experience with the hobby is required. The group will meet once a week at a member's house--usually on a Saturday in North Knoxville.

Generally speaking, we play what are known as designer or modern board games. What are designer or modern board games, you might ask? While it is hard to pinpoint exactly what constitutes such a game, a quick, dirty and mostly inaccurate summary might be a game designed by a person rather than a company. In other words, likely games that you did not play as a child, i.e. not Monopoly, Scrabble or Risk.

Your next question is probably "Well, in that case, what kind of games do you play?" Great question, that you didn't ask. We commonly will play the very popular and familiar designer games like Ticket to Ride, The Settlers of Catan, 7 Wonders and Dominion. In addition to those, we play dozens of more esoteric choices; games that might not be as immediately recognizable as the aforementioned titles.

If you've never heard of such games and are uncomfortable at the idea of learning new games or prefer your old favorites, despair not! We play lots of games that take two minutes to learn and can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of experience or skill. And we may be down for a good old fashioned game of Monopoly, too.

So, if this sounds good to you, please give us a try. I think you'll be happy you did.

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.
