Help support your MeetupChip in
Let's play games! Make new friends and get the stress out with some good, clean fun. Bring your own games and meet new players, play games that are provided, enjoy old favorites, or learn something new! If you're a seasoned gamer and know your stuff, welcome! We have a personal selection of 50+ games that range in complexity and genre and plenty of board game fanatics to play them with.
If you're new to gaming and your only frame of reference is Monopoly and Apples to Apples, welcome! We learned many of our new favorites because other members brought them and taught us, and we are happy to teach you, too!
We play a broad selection of games, from American favorites to challenging Euros, word games and trivia games, deck builders and worker placement games, dice games and card games, cooperatives and competitive. Our selection is as diverse as our membership: We are many ages and all sorts! This is intended as an 18+ club, but please contact our organizers if you have questions about bringing your children.
Because seeing a pile of unfamiliar games can sometimes be intimidating, here's a handy guide to some of the things we play:
If you like party games like Apples to Apples or Taboo, you might enjoy: Wits 'n' Wagers, Bezzerwizzer, Last Word, Sort It Out, Zero, Joe Name It, Avalon, Red Dragon Inn, Deception Dice, or Split Decision.
Enjoy dice games? Maybe try: Deception Dice, Can't Stop, Star Trek Catan, Kingsburg, or King of Tokyo.
Like chess or checkers? These might be interesting: Tsuro, Qwirkle, Alhambra, Lotus, Ricochet Robots, or Repello. If you enjoy card games, we have tons: Dominion, 7 Wonders, The Great Dalmuti, Splendor, Wizard, Hanabi, Ascension, Parade, Fluxx, Guillotine, Smash-Up, Twelve Days, Love Letter, Dutch Blitz, and many more.
Do you like moving little guys around a board? Try these: Carcassonne; Lords of Waterdeep; Flashpoint; Oh My God, There's an Axe in My Head!; Takenoko; Pandemic; Small World; Forbidden Desert; Ricochet Robots; Tsuro; or Finca.
If dominating a world is your thing, give these a go: Small World; Star Trek Catan; Ticket to Ride; Ticket to Ride: Africa; Carcassonne; TransAmerica; TransEuropa; Oh My God, There's an Axe in My Head!; or Revolution.
If you'd rather work together than compete, cooperative games may be up your alley: Flashpoint, Pandemic, Letters from Whitechapel, Avalon, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Forbidden Desert, Hanabi, or Castle Panic.
We are always adding to and updating our selection, and members can bring their own games as well. We are ALWAYS willing to teach games to new members, and everyone is welcome!
We meet approximately every two weeks at a diner from 6:30 to whenever we call it a night. We also occasionally host pot luck game nights at willing members' homes. You are not required to order anything at the diner. However, we do collect a $2.00 fee per person per meeting attended in order to use their back room and occupy their waitstaff for several hours; this fee is in addition to any gratuity you may leave personally for your waitstaff. Other donations to offset the cost of Meetup.com fees and add to our game supply are appreciated but not required.
The challenge is on, so come on out and show us your fun side!
Please note that this group is closed to member solicitation. If you are a game designer or developer, please contact our organizers about any games you'd like to play-test or promote within our group.
