  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Been about a year, since I started coming to this meetup. Have met a lot of great people, played a ton of games, and finally have an idea of what genres I enjoy playing more often than not. The group has been welcoming, and very open to teaching folks the game that's on the table. Whether you're new to the hobby (we all were once), a staunch euro gamer, thematically inclined, or somewhere in between, come on down, we'd love to show you our favorite games.

     Just went to my first meetup. Was quite fun. Very diverse group of people here. Gender, race, age, etc. It doesn't matter. All were welcome and having a good time. Beginner tip: There's nothing formal about this. Proactively jump in and join a game and let the fun begin.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Fun bunch with a wide assortment of games. You may have to be a little aggressive in introducing yourself to people. So don't be shy in going up to people and saying "Hi, I'm looking to play a game."

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     I just went to my first Meetup. I arrived at 1pm as scheduled and I just got home around 3am because I could not stop playing. We even had to relocate after our venue closed because we were having so much fun. I walked in without knowing anyone and when I looked around I realized I didn't recognize a single game. Not one. BUT IT WAS AWESOME!!!! Everyone I played with was extremely articulate and enthusiastic about teaching the new games. It was overall a fantastic experience and I will most definitely be going back for more!

     They're a great group with diverse gamers. 

    on Nov 24, 2012.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Honestly, if you are a beginner, this is not the group for you. Atleast 4 games had already been signed up for by members when they rsvp'd, which is not a criticism for that, but newbies and people coming who said they just wanted to play are left out in the cold and when people especially newbies are coming to the event, and there is NO host or a host who doesn't bother to do their job, you are made to feel like an outsider. This group is hard core, and it should be said right up front when people join so that they don't come to a meetup and be treated like an outcast. Only come if you know someone. Someone in charge would be nice. I did have a good time, but when I introduced myself to some people, it was like I didn't exist Thankfully I knew some members and I had a nice time with them.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     You have a super time meeting new people making new friends and yes getting to play the games you bring like San Juan and Bohnanza & Vegas Showdown, plus Saint Petersburg and Ticket To Ride, and other games and you enjoy games others bring too. 

    on Feb 28, 2011.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Group is really active and folks are easy to get along with. Meetups can seem busy (always lots of games going!) -- the most intimidating part is finding out how to get in on the fun games. If you're unsure, tell a group playing a game that you're new and ask them to explain how the meetups generally work... or, better yet, ask someone to direct you to one of the awesome group organizers! :-) 

    on Feb 20, 2011.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     I always meet some nice folks when I attend, which I wish could be more often.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     This group is great for hardcore gamers and newbies alike. The experienced players help teach the games to others, and the gameplay goes on at a high strategic level. Plus, the people are fun and respectful. A great time all around. 

    on Aug 28, 2010.

     You'll play games you've never heard of and meet some very interesting people. 

    on Aug 11, 2010.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     A great way to find new people to play games with, and new games to play with the new people! 

    on Jul 30, 2010.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     This is a friendly and funny group that is involved in a lot of low energy gaming. Some of the games are much more skill focused than luck, some are almost pure luck, and some are fairly even. Nevertheless, the people are great. They create the atmosphere and cause the meetups to be enjoyable, possibly more than the games do. 

    on Jul 12, 2010.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Awesome!

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     It's so difficult to meet folks living in "the city" -- let alone folks willing and able to sit down for long stretches of time to play boardgames! It was so nice to have "meetup" do the legwork for me, and give me a chance to participate in the hobby I adore. 

    on May 16, 2010.

  • New York City Boardgames & Cardgames Group

     Great place to meet fellow gamers and get your game on. No need to be shy just talk to people and you'll get in a game.
