All Day Board Game Madness!!! featuring King of Tokyo Tournament!

Join Card Board Gamers for a variety of modern games from noon to midnight. Bring your own or play one from our collections.  If you're new to the world of modern board games, please let us know and we'll ease your way into this great pastime.   And note, feature games and themes aren't mandatory.   Any and all games are welcome and, as always, we don't charge for casual play! 

Highlights for this meetup include:

Ragnarok!  In celebration of the opening of Thor:  The Dark World, I'll be bringing a batch of games with Norse themes.  Yggdrasil, Vineta, Voluspa, Asgard's Chosen and others will be available for play.

King of Tokyo Tournament!  We will be having a tournament to see who is the baddest monster of all!  Details will be added later but prizes include a cash prize and the coveted Space Penguin kaiju.  There will be a small fee to participate in the tournament which goes straight into the cash prize.  We also have several promo packs to give to participants and those who don't win a prize will receive a free entry into the gift card raffle.

The gift card is for Bluegrassmagic Game Shop.   Amount based on number of entries.  Entries are one dollar per.  This isn't a mandatory fee.  Playing games is free but only those who donate will be entered into the drawing.

For an idea of games we've played, here's a short list of past faves and recent plays: Lost Legends; Battlestar Galactica; Firefly; Dominion; Lords of Waterdeep; 7 Wonders; Thunderstone; Arkham Horror; Eclipse; Brass; Seasons; Spartacus; X-Wing.

And don't forget to pick up a rewards card.  Attend meetups at Bluegrass and get stamps toward a 25% discount on board games.  The best deal in the city!

    Over thirty gamers rocked out BluegrassMagic yesterday with many board and card games! The highlight of the day had to be the King of Tokyo tournament. Congratulations to Jeb in taking home the crown of the baddest monster in the city with Mechadragon! Happy to see but sad I didn't get to play Terra Mystica and Yedo hit the table. A lot of our usual faves got played of course (Love Letter, Smash Up, Small World) as well as other games such as Dominant Species, Castle Panic, and Fury of Dracula. I was introduced to a new game called Queue, I think, a kind of variation on Guillotine and worker placement. Thanks to all our regulars and new players for making this another success for the group and much thanks to Travis for organizing and running the tournament. We'll skip a tournament in December but will have another one in January. For the second BGM!!! this month, I've heard Starcraft being tossed around. Any takers?

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.
