We are a group of laid back folks who like to make new friends and play board games.  We are just normal people with a kinda geeky hobby.  But we don't what people think though, because we have a blast playing games and we would love to share our hobby with you!

In this group we all come to have fun and make friends, we don't let games devolve into screaming matches and we won't get upset when someone wipes the floor with us.  These are games, they are fun because we play them together, not because we crush our opponents.  We are here to have fun and meet people to share our fantastic hobby with.

Are you are looking for a group of awesome people to become friends with?  You should join us and come on out to a meetup!   You will be glad you did!

We always have tons of fantastic games at our meetups, but feel free to bring your favorites if you want!  We will always be willing to teach you how to play if you don't know a game and if you are interested in a particular game there is a pretty good chance it is in one of our personal libraries, we have HUNDREDS of board games between everyone in this group.  (Maybe thousands... It's kinda an addiction.)

We hope to see you at game night!
