Philadelphia Area Gamers

Anyone looking to for a competitive and friendly board gaming group is welcome to join us at our monthly meetings. We generally play Euro-style boardgames and card games that challenge the mind and encourage mirthful socializing.

Our general format is to gather at a local pub twice a month for food, brew and festive gaming. Beginners are welcome; we always review game instructions before diving in! Occasionally other events are hosted by members and annually we have our pollyanna style board game exchange in December.

Some games we've recently played: Seven Wonders, Citadels, Settlers of Catan, Tichu, Medici, Carcassonne, Power Grid, Fresco, Keythedral, Pandemic, Wizard.

    Just a reminder to our newer members. Don't be turned off by what looks like a low RSVP number. We draw attendees from several different places: Facebook, our Yahoo group, our Board Game Geek guild and here. I try and update the attend numbers after the meetup with the actual count, but I've missed a few in the past.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
