What we're about

Calling all board game geeks!

Get ready to play some fantastic board and card games, running the spectrum from seriously strategic to seriously silly.

Our group meets for games across Los Angeles, with a big monthly games day in West LA.

Whether you're up on all the latest games or haven't tried anything new since Monopoly, we'll have a large assortment to share & teach.

Playing games is a great way to meet new friends, because you automatically have something to talk about!

Board & Card Games Day -- January 26

St. Bede's Church

Happy 2019! We're closing out the first month of the new year with a day of board games and card games! We've rented the hall for nine hours of social silliness and strategy, so feel free to come for a quick game or two, or stay and and play for the long haul. This is a great event for new members. If you think board games peaked with Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, and Scrabble, you're in for a treat. Build your empire across the stars, stand tall through Wild West shootouts, solve a mystery with the help of a ghost, travel through time, save Camelot, and many more fun intellectual diversions. You're also welcome to bring your own games to share! Game captains will be on hand to lead games, introduce members, and explain rules, so don't worry if you haven't heard any of these games. Part of the fun is learning! Board games are a great "thinking person's relaxation" and offer much funny and odd fodder for conversation. WHO? For newcomers and seasoned gamers alike. Meet some new friends, bring a pal or three if you want, and get ready to have some fun! TIME? This event starts at 12 noon and goes til 9pm. At 5pm we hand out prizes: brand-new board games randomly awarded to four lucky attendees. COST? $10 adults, $5 for kids 12 and under. ANYTHING ELSE? There are plenty of places to grab food nearby. People tend to get dinner between 5 and 6. Some snacks are for sale on-site. Hope to see you there!

Meet some new friends, bring a pal or three if you want, and get ready to have some fun! TIME? The event starts at 12 noon and goes til 9pm. At 5pm we hand out prizes, and if we have enough interest, we'll round out the evening with a group game for 10-15 players: Werewolf, or Dead Last, or Two Rooms and a Boom.

Everyone knows that new books, movies, and songs get released all the time, but for some reason people seem surprised to learn that there are more games than Chess, Monopoly, and Scrabble.
