     Joseph is one of the best game hosts I've ever met. Not only does he have more board games than God, he's friendly, approachable, and great at introducing people and getting them involved. Don't be afraid to attend!

     Love the Tampa Chapter of the Society for the Exploration of Play. I cannot rave about the group of people any more. For me, I was worried about hygienely-challenged , living in mom's basement, super socially awkward 16 years olds playing pokemon. Luckily, this group greets you with open arms and they are normal people. Thursdays are awesome. If you are new, Joseph, the group's organizer, will greet you in the first 10 minutes and introduce you to people. He'll recommend games to play. He owns almost 1,000. Way more options than other groups/stores in the area. People are very friendly and you'll end up trying many new games. No worries about it being cliquish or snobby. People also love to teach games.

     Good group.... Tough sometimes to jump in when a hard-core 2-hr game is being played.. just keep in mind, they will be more than happy to pause and introduce you to others and play something else..

     Everyone should join this group to learn new games in a laid back setting. Russell is great at explaining games and does a great job at selecting titles for play. He is very knowledgeable about the hobby and has a tremendous collection.
