I am an RN at UCSD Hillcrest and a nerd in my spare time. I like all manner of cerebral-yet-entertaining word and trivia games best, some adventure/strategy games... and zero interest in speed-based games.
This is a group of people who like playing board games. We have a large variety of interests and types of games so you'll probably find someone who likes the same game(s) as you do. All ages are welcome.
At the public meetups during the week, we strongly encourage people to play inclusive games and ones that aren't too involved so that anyone can play. A good rule of thumb is that the game time should be less than an hour. For those people who prefer playing the serious strategy games, there is a Strategy Board Games group (http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/sdstrategygamers/ ) that meets every week also.
