The Cardboard Club is dedicated to celebrating the highest incarnation of the humblest of materials through play and merriment. In other words, we like to play fancy board games. Come join us for a game at one of our two regular nights.

At The Cardboard Club, we really like our games on the lighter side of the spectrum. The hobby of board gaming spans quite a gamut of experiences. There are games that can be played in 20 minutes to an hour, beer in hand, with lots of folks laughing, lying, and interacting; and then there are games where you and (sometimes coincidentally) some other people are heads down and silent for 3 to 6 hours, calculating which of 29 different options will get you a little more of this bit or that, until finally one exhausted person can be said to have "won." As you can probably guess, we like the former more than the latter. This is all a long-winded way of saying: at The Cardboard Club, brains may sizzle, but they should never burn. Keep it light, keep it social, have fun!

The regulars bring games from their ever-expanding collections, but don't be shy about bringing your own games to share with the group if you think they might be a good fit. And don't worry if you haven't played a game before, we're always happy to teach new players.

 

A special shout out to our sponsor Guardian Games, a purveyor of the finest of cardboard products, a strong supporter of the community, and a great place to check out the latest the game world has to offer.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
