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.

      Cool after seeing a lot of you like power grid and then doing a bunch of reading about that game I ordered myself a copy so I'll have something to bring to future events. Looking forward to meeting you all tonight.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
