Play Time happy hour -- where fun folks who like to socialize, enjoy a good drink or cocktail, and play some designer games together get together at a bar or lounge somewhere in New York for a uniquely entertaining evening out.

Here's what folks have said about previous Play Time events:

  • "Super fun awesome time"
  • "A great time with new friends"
  • "A very fun, surprisingly rare event"
  • "Unique sophisticated social interactions"
  • "Wondrous social hour, competition with compassion"

This isn't a meetup for "gamers" -- to the contrary -- it's for everyday New Yorkers. We always have friendly game guides to teach you how to play and to join up with a group to play with. It's a great experience for bringing friends and for making new ones.

The games we play have on our games menu range from simple board and card games to iPad games that you play together to indie games we've designed ourselves on a custom round interactive game table. Some involve bluffing and playful banter, some involve creative thinking and subtlety, some are more strategic. All have been chosen to be fun, thoughtful, and creatively interesting. Perfect for enjoying with a good cocktail, glass of good wine, or craft beer.

Intrigued? Come along to a meetup and try it out!

[This meetup was formerly called Silly Drunken Board Games. It's now going in a new direction. Still games and drinks and great people, but with a more curated experience that we're trying out. Hope you'll come to a meetup soon!)
