Open Gaming Every Friday Night!

We play and teach games all night long until midnight.  Drop in any time from 7:00 to 11:00 or so and you're sure to find something to play!  Bring your games from home or use any of the games from our extensive used game library.  We often have many tables going on at once for lots of variety.  The earlier part of the evening is ideal for families with kids.

We play all sorts of board games and card games on Friday nights, but also:

Got a favorite game you'd like to find others to play? Bring it along!  Let us know in advance if possible so we can help with recruiting players.

Our chess and Go guru Steve Bloom is often on hand to teach and play both, and will always confirm here if he's coming.  (Plus we have a separate Meetup for each every Sunday; for details see chess here and Go here.)

Very recently we've added Magic the Gathering every Friday (reserved table in the back) and on Thursdays too, hosted by Jimmy Freeman and both starting at 7:00 PM.  See our separate MTG Meetup page for details on these plus special MTG events. 

(We have had to drop our 2nd/4th Friday Pathfinder Beginner's Box offering for the time being due to the rapidly advancing pregnancy of the GM's wife -- congrats to both!  For now, check out our separate Pathfinder Society Meetup, held every Wednesday, here.)

In addition to these Friday Meetups and the ones linked above, there are yet more game-specific events for adults and youth over the course of each week, including Scrabble, youth Pathfinder, youth chess and youth Go classes/play, so check out our full schedule here. There's more to come, so be sure to stay in touch!

We request a donation of $3 to help offset the cost of keeping the store open so late every Friday.

Hope to see you soon!

    Do you ever play Dominion, Pathfinder card game, or Dungeon Dice? Those are the three at the top of my "consideration" list right now.

      Thanks Steve. I don't own those three... yet. Hoping to play them a bit before purchasing. Anyway, looking forward to the games tonight.

    I'm so sorry to bail! I seem to be coming down with a cold, so I'll wait a few days and roll dice with you guys when I'm not contagious.

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.
