We are a group of people who enjoy getting together and playing all sorts of board games. We don't usually play any of the normal Milton Bradley type games (Monopoly, Scrabble, etc), as we tend to focus on a strange new breed of games called Eurogames.
We're a highly social group of people. We like to joke around, we like to talk politics, local and national events. We don't take life too seriously.
What's a Eurogame?
Eurogames are a distinct style of games. According to Wikipedia, they are a broad class of games that feature simple rules, modest length, and attractive components.
How many people usually show up?
We've got a nice solid core of people that show up nearly every time. I would say it's about 8 or 9 besides myself. After that, you've got people who are semi-regulars -- those who show up whenever they can, but they can't come out all the time. This numbers in the teens. After that, you have the smattering of new people who are either going to come out once and then disappear, or fit into one of the other two categories.
On average, we have 15-20 people. At times, it has gone up over 20 (sometimes for a few weeks in a row), and occasionally it's just the core group.
Is it just all guys?
No. You can check the previous game nights in the calendar and take a look at who attended -- we get a mix that, if it's not 50/50, is fairly close.
I've never heard of these kinds of games, is it still OK that I come?
We all have to start somewhere. The group consists of a lot of people who are good at teaching these games. You'll understand how to play the game -- strategies, well ... they'll come later.
