What we're about
This is a group for people in Bozeman that enjoy playing board games. There are other great groups for board gaming that just involve a time and a place to meet and invite everyone to come out and play. While meeting at our local gaming stores is fantastic (Saturday night at Hastings, pretty much all of the time at Rooks), I wanted to make a group that has events to play a certain board game rather than a come one, come all attitude. Sometimes you just want to play Settlers and do not want to hear about how overrated it is. Sometimes you buy a great game and trying to convince you gaming group to play is like pulling teeth. The goal of this group is to attract people that really want to play the game itself, and of course meet and socialize with like-minded folks :). Also, Hastings and Rooks are great places to meet, but we also have fantastic breweries, coffee shops, and parks in town that would be a fun place to meet for games too. Let's be creative. Initially I will try to post a variety of different games I own and set things up, but ideally I would love for this to be a space for any gamer to post a game they want to play, set up a location, and have group members meet without me present (as much as I would love to be present for every gaming session). I tend to enjoy strategy games like Puerto Rico, Settlers of Catan, and Dominion, but I hope people will post for all types of games including games like Monopoly or Balderdash. Chances are pretty good that if you want to play the game, you can find other people in town who do too! The last thing I want to mention is that for a group like this to work, the members need to take RSVPs seriously. If you say you are going to show up and do not, it could mean that no one gets to play because not enough players are present. Thankfully Bozeman is full of respectful and fun people, so I do not think this will be a problem.
