What we're about

I'm a young professional in Chicago and recently thought to myself "I really want to meet people but am over the bar/club scene. Why not start a social board game group." Thus this group was born, and YOU are invited. Come to a Friendly Games Meetup twice a month to play old favorites with new friends around your age. All games and skill levels are welcome, although we have a soft spot for Euro-style games like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne. Bring your favorite board games, card games, word games, etc. You can teach us or we can learn that new game together. You can also just hang out and socialize with a fun group of people. We are limiting this group to young professionals in Uptown or Edgewater between the ages of 23 and 35. The goal is to create a small, fun group that can really get to know each other and have a great time. I hope to see you there!

In Person Board Game Night!

Needs a location

At long last it's time for us to roll real dice, shuffle up cards, grab a cold beer, and see each other face to face!

In person board game nights are back. We're returning to Konak Pizza and Grill. Naturally, we request that you follow the City of Chicago and CDC public health guidelines for indoor events. (In short, you don't need to wear a mask if you're fully vaccinated).

Every 2 weeks starting about 7 PM we have open board game play deep into the night. Some of our favorites include Ticket To Ride, Settlers Of Catan, Carcassonne, 7 Wonders, Love Letter, Ultimate Werewolf, and Pandemic.

There is no charge for this event and people are encouraged to bring games or just join in one. We will have a good mix of new and experienced gamers, and new people are generally competitive in the kinds of games we play. It is a very friendly crowd and everyone is willing to learn or teach a game.
