What we're about
Boardgame Monkeys is organizing events for beginner to experienced boardgames expats in Brussels. Gaming sessions are hosted in English and rules will be explained at the beginning of each session.
We are an active group and expect some commitments of our members. Join us only if you are really interested in playing boardgames with us. To keep us healthy and active:
- We do clean out inactive members every quarter.
- We do track late cancellations and no-shows (3x of any of those and we remove you from the group).
- We have 15+ Event Organizers who are hosting regular tables. Respect their time, energy and explanations. They will moderate events as required.
This sound strict but you have to understand that boardgames is not like a museum visit or having a glass at a bar. When a player is missing at the table - it does influence the gameplay and the evening for those who showed up.
We play all kinds of games, from Agricola, Yspahan, Small World to Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Munchkin, Carcassonne, 7 Wonders, Race for the galaxy, Ticket to ride and many many more. We love all types of board- and cardgames, and although we have mostly moved beyond the simplest games like Monopoly and Scrabble, we're always exited to try out what we call "modern boardgames".
We usually bring our personal games with us or borrow one from a games library. Would any component of a game be damaged by yourself during the session: the expectation is you replace the piece (if possible) or the entire gamebox (if damage prevents a normal/expected use of the game).
We hope this will be a group where you can share great social evenings with us, trying out new games and expanding your horizons together with a friendly group of people, a lot of fun and amusement.
