We are a casual group of people who enjoy playing board games -- specifically, the kind of board games that make you think.  We play a variety of games, most of which are Euro style games of medium complexity.

This season, in addition to playing games, we will be raffling off a bunch of popular games!  There will be a raffle at each meetup.  Simply by showing up, you'll get a chance to win free games.  The more often you come, the more entries you'll receive.

We have a TERRIFIC space for games steps from the Kendall Square T, with easy parking, and lots of room to spread out in.  Our meetups happen once a week (alternating Mondays and Wednesdays), from 7:00 pm until the last people leave (usually quite a few hours).

Our group has been running since 2007, and at this point we have a pretty large crowd of regulars.  A lot of people come once every few weeks, and RSVPs are appreciated but not required, so the RSVP list is often smaller than our actual attendance.  We expect about 30-45 people at most of our meetups.

We play whatever people bring, which typically includes a lot of Euros.  Here's a "tip of the iceberg" look at a few games that have been popular lately:

7 Wonders, Terra Mystica, Race for the Galaxy, Splendor, One Night Werewolf, Le Havre, Hansa Teutonica, Machi Koro, Concordia, Super Big Boggle

As you can see, there is some real variety.  A few of our regular attendees bring about 20-30 games between them, so there's always a lot to choose from.  But if you have a game you like, just bring it with you!

People new to Euros are very welcome.  But be aware that you are NOT likely to find traditional American games (like Monopoly, Sorry, Risk, or Poker); the heaviest strategy games (like 18xx or wargames); or pure abstract games (like Chess).

Finally, a note about Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne.  These are traditional "gateway games" that many people play when they first discover Euros.  Although you will occasionally find those games at our meetups, many of us have played them to death and have become more interested in games with a little more complexity to them.

Feel free to email with any questions -- we hope to see you at a meetup soon.
