This meetup exists to facilitate tabletop board and role-playing games in the East Bay. We meet irregularly at various venues throughout the East Bay (La Casa de Mark or our new Oakland Headquarters). We are generally not hardcore gamers and hope to share a large spectrum of game play. We have played such games as Arkham Horror, Descent, Munchkin, Arkham Horror, Resistance, Monopoly, and Arkham Horror.

Our name, while reflective of our general dislike of humankind and avoidance of society, is more indicative of an intolerance of gamer culture elitism and does not preclude us from gathering in an attempt to shun those who do not understand the importance of platonic solids. And it is supposed to be funny. In other words, experience is by no means necessary, but a quirky sense of humor helps.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
