What we're about

Hi, this is a Meetup group for anybody who would like to have fun playing card, board, or identity games, basically any game with some social interaction, in the vicinity of Merode which is a convenient location thanks to the Metro.

The idea is to have fun, socialise and laugh while playing. There is therefore no competitive spirit and everybody plays fairly.

Members bring their own games.

We usually play on 2 or 3 tables so that, if you come on time, you will be able to choose the game that you want to play.

We usually play on Tuesdays but not always and this can change.

Upcoming events (4+)

Strategy board games at the Café

Needs a location

Hello everybody,

WHAT we play. As you know, we have 2 events, one more for social types of games on Thursday and another one more for strategic types of games on Monday. Usually, I bring 2 chess games and 1 backgammon. But depending on what people bring, most of us play other brainy games. So, feel free to bring other ones.

And this is only indicative. Some games like Decrypto fit both events and if people feel like playing a social game on Monday or a more strategic one on Thursday, they of course are free to do so.

CHATBOX USE. You are invited to discuss, in the event chatbox, the games that you bring and the games that you want to play for this game session. The idea is to gather people around game tables beforehand.

Of course, it's also possible to just show up and arrange this after the introduction round which starts at 7h10.

FEES. This year, we will have to ask for a small fee to cover the Meetup costs. We charge the same amount as the writing Meetup which is asking for 6 EUR/ 6 months and 10 EUR/ 12 months. This is 1 EUR month with a discount if you pay for the full year. Thanks for your understanding. Newcomers can have a free trial ;)

HOST. If you want to become a host and have your own board game event, for a specific game or with a small group of people or in another place, Great! Let me know and I'll help you set your event with this group.

TIMING: Because strategy games are often longer, we start earlier at 7 pm. Those who bring long games can have 3h30 minutes for their game. You are of course welcome to come later but you may have to wait before joining a game.

WHERE. We play upstairs. Ask which room at the bar downstairs.

DRINK. You have to order a drink at the bar, pay for it and come up with it.

EVENT REGISTRATION. Please, out of respect for people on the waiting list, don't cancel later than 7 PM the day before so that people on the waiting list can plan their evening correctly. If you are on the waiting list, please also cancel your attendance if you change you no longer can come. Thanks for your understanding.

COVID AND HEALTH MEASURES. As you know, at present, we don't have Covid restrictions anymore for our type of events in Belgium. However, please, if you are sick, even with a simple cold, wear a mask and wash your hands to protect the other players from getting it.
Don't hesitate to send me a message for commenting or making suggestions!

Take care and see you soon!

Fun social interactions games in the PARK/ IF RAIN, at Carpe Diem

Hello everybody,

LOCATION. In the Cinquantenaire Park. Only if it rains, we move to Carpe Diem café from the Park. So the meeting is at the park even if it may rain later. It will be at Carpe Diem right away only if it rains at 7PM.

WHAT we play. We play social interaction games on Thursdays: Dixit, Codenames, Werewolf, Secret Hitler, Exploding Kittens, Bang...They are fun to play with and easy to learn.

WHAT TO BRING. As usual, we will play with the games that people bring. Don't hesitate to mention them in the event chatbox. In addition, you can bring snacks and drinks (only in the park) and something to put under your royal buttocks because the lawn is sometimes a bit wet.

FEES. This year, we will have to ask for a small fee to cover the Meetup costs. We charge the same amount as the writing Meetup which is asking for 6 EUR/ 6 months and 10 EUR/ 12 months. This is 1 EUR per month with a discount if you pay for the full year. Thanks for your understanding. Newcomers can have a free trial ;)

HOSTS. If you want to host an event even with only a few people, Great! Contact me.

DRINK IF AT THE CAFE. You pay for your drink downstairs and come up with it. The room allocated is either to the left (the red room) or to the right depending on the Café's planning for that night.

EVENT REGISTRATION. Please, out of respect for people on the waiting list, don't cancel later than 7 PM the day before so that they can plan their evening correctly. If you are on the waiting list, please cancel your attendance if you can no longer come. Thanks for your understanding.

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/233078/twilight-imperium-fourth-edition

We will play at a private location that will be communicated to the participants

I am unsure of the duration for a first game ...
Depends a lot on the player's count and on the players themselves...
I guess 4 to 6 hours of game... but time is fleeing when playing this game!!!

I count 1 hour for explanations, picking factions and installing the game.

The schedule is flexible if needed. it could be other starting time / end time or could be on Saturday as well. But let's assume this schedule and date.
