This meetup will be with the intent to learning a new game!

Bring a game you just bought but haven't played yet or just come by and join in to learn a new game.

If someone already knows the game it would be great if they could teach it to everyone!

Please keep in mind that since we will be learning games it will take sometime to get started and playing as we will need to learn the rules together.

I will try to update each event with a game I would like to try or send me a message with your game title and I will post it on the meetup. When possible I will put a link to the rules on the site so you can read them ahead of time.

If we ever run out of new games we can break out games that we haven't played in a long time that need a refresher!

Up this week we have two possibilities: 

1. Troyes

In Troyes, recreate four centuries of history of this famous city of the Champagne region of France. Each player manages their segment of the population (represented by a horde of dice) and their hand of cards, which represent the three primary domains of the city: religious, military, and civil. Players can also offer cash to their opponents' populace in order to get a little moonlighting out of them—anything for more fame!

Make your underlings: work on the cathedral, combat misfortune, bustle about the city, and other such tasks that are below your family's stature.

2. Lost Temple

In Lost Temple, the players are explorers looking for a mysterious lost temple. To find it, they must cross the jungle and get help from the indigenous people. The first player to reach the temple on the last space of the track wins the game.

The game uses a character selection rule similar to Faidutti's Citadels, and the game includes nine different characters: Shaman, Thief, Seer, Priest, Elder, Craftsman, Scout, Canoe, and Child.

In the dense jungle of southeast Asia you must take your chances and start your journey. As an explorer, you will cross the jungle and ask help from the local people. But can you outwit your opponents and claim the discovery of the Lost Temple?

    I enjoyed Troyes but it would takes several games to really get the strategy down.
    Lost Temple was a simple game but did have a little strategy.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
