Rhode Island Games & Activities Group Pages

Last updated on 12/21/13.

This group initially started simply as a boardgames group, but has grown and expended to include a variety of events which include Bar Trivia, Pizza Meetups, Various Events in and around Providence, as well as the aforementioned boardgames. There's something for everyone in this group, so please join the group if you see something you like, and, of course, please come and join us at one of our events. It's a great way to meet new people and make "old friends" fast.

For an easier & quicker way to view our calendar and to see what's coming up when, please check this link out:

In terms of boardgames, we have a great variety and we play a different game each week with a new one added every month. These are a combination of old classics as well as new classics. The goal is having fun no matter what game we play. Our members range in age and backgrounds, so no need to feel like you might the "odd one out", we're all young at heart, and we enjoy each other's company.

Current boardgame (and this i just a small sampling) offerings: Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, The Game of Life, Clue, Catch Phrase!, Guesstures, Fact or Crap, Taboo, Pictionary, Battle of the Sexes, Urban Myth, Sequence, Apples to Apples, Yahtzee, Uno, Boggle, Gift Trap, Encore, Poker & Other Card Games, Scene It (Movie, TV, and Seinfeld Editions), Various Movie Trivia DVD's, several Murder Mysteries, ID: The Identity Game, Sue You!, Clue DVD, Mad Gab, Adverteasing II, Outburst, Buzz Word, Scattergories, and Cranium.

As time goes by, we'll add to that list, so keep your eye out for new meetups. Please feel free to suggest other boardgames as well, especially if you have them and would like to bring them one of the nights to play.

Our outings have included: Comedy Shows, Bowling, Barbeques, Gambling, Dining, Haunted Hayrides, Corn Mazes, Movies, Pool, Interactive "Real Life" Puzzles, Mini Golf, Dragon Boat Races, and Karaoke

And just like the boardgames, we're always adding that that list, so feel free to make suggestions on things. We're open to just about any ideas so long as they have a passing link to games, competition or just general fun. More emphasis on the fun part. And the game part.

Please be sure to read the "Rules & Regulations of Fun" found here:
