The Queen City Game Club is a 21+ meetup for gamers interested in more complex or strategy driven board games. Traditional strategy games, abstract games, euro games and war games of all kind are welcome. This group will also be a community for local board game designers that are interested in obtaining feedback and looking for playtesting groups.

Our meetup schedule, includes several monthly meetup events, including our popular Beers and Board Games event at the Waldhorn.

Finally, we also look to match up gamers for various ad hoc meetup events. If you are interested in playing a particular game and are just looking for a few other players, you can setup a new meetup indicating the venue and the max number of participants  for your game session. We request that you attend at least one public meetup before making a request to host an event at a private residence. Our message boards are also available for making request when looking for members to join in a specific game session.


For 2015, if you pay your $25 membership dues, you will be considered a voting member for this year. Your voting rights will continue as long as you renew your dues by the following year on February 1 (starting in 2016).

Nothing is changing for those of you who don't pay dues. You're still welcome to come to the meetup events as always!

We would ask that you consider making a contribution to the club. Meetup Fees have increased this year to $240. Other IT fees (email, PayPal, web domain) run about $170 per year. And we spent about $75 on advertising. And these funds can also help us provide prize support for our special events and add games to our library for our community teaching projects.

You can make a contribution via ( or providing cash or a check (made out to Queen City Game Club) to one of the officers at an event.

Thanks for your support!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
